Description

Praise for The Adventures of John Blake: Mystery of the Ghost Ship

* "With obvious affection for Tintin, Pullman threads this complicated skein of plot with customary measures of awe and menace... he proves an expert visual storyteller. Fordham animates with characters who have the detail and agility of a Studio Ghibli cast... Anything new from Pullman is big news, and his first original graphic novel won't disappoint." -- Booklist, starred review

* "The various plot threads coalesce into a powerful tale, with the artwork creating a soaring, cinematic feel. A modern seafaring epic, highly recommended for all Pullman and fantasy fans and more than worthy of its author's oeuvre." -- School Library Journal, starred review

"Pullman has created an intricate blend of science fiction and adventure, skillfully weaving together many disparate elements into a cohesive and exciting tale. Fordham's art, although realistic and spare, is cinematic in scope, imbuing this with all the momentum of a Hollywood blockbuster." -- Kirkus Reviews

"The graphic novel format lets Pullman's (the His Dark Materials series) dialogue shine, and Fordham's lucid panels are strong, legible, and charged with energy." -- Publishers Weekly
