Orphan Black - Watch the Show, Skip the Graphic Novel
AUTHOR: John Fawcett, Szymon Kudranski, Graeme Manson, Jody Houser, Catt Staggs
PUBLISHER: IDW Publishing
PUBLISHING DATE: September 23, 2015
FROM GOODREADS: Sarah’s life was changed dramatically after witnessing the suicide of a woman who looked just like her. Sarah learned that, not only were she and the woman clones, but there were others just like them, and dangerous factions at work set on capturing them all. Now, the mysterious world of Orphan Black widens, with new layers of the conspiracy being peeled back in this miniseries by co-creators John Fawcett and Graeme Manson!
I picked this up when I saw it at the local library because basically I am pretty obsessed with Orphan Black. Sadly, I wasn't as impressed with the graphic novel and do not see myself continuing the series. In order to understand this volume, you pretty much have to have seen the first season of the series, and if you have, then there is really no reason to read this book. There were a few bits and pieces added in which aren't shown on TV, but it's pretty "jumpy" and hard to follow and I didn't even enjoy the artwork that much. I really think this is a case of where I love the television series so much, there is no way this could ever hold up to it. I am sure others will love this, it just isn't for me.
RATING: 2 PAWS
