Staff Reviews


Mind-controlling alien slugs versus pre-teens who can turn into animals sounds like the plot of a hokey '90s sci-fi -- and that's exactly what it is! -- but the wonderfully deep and nuanced development of the main characters elevates this series to the status of an epic. I am beyond thrilled to see the Animorphs series making its debut in the graphic novel form.

Description


The wildly popular, bestselling sci-fi series by Katherine Applegate and Michael Grant returns in a new full-color graphic novel series, adapted by Chris Grine.

Sometimes weird things happen to people. Ask Jake. He could tell you about the night he and his friends saw a strange light in the sky that seemed to be heading right for them. That was the night five normal kids learned that humanity is under a silent attack -- and were given the power to fight back.Now Jake, Rachel, Cassie, Tobias, and Marco can transform into some of the most dangerous creatures on Earth. And they must use that power to outsmart an evil greater than anything the world has ever seen. . . .
