    1. Guess what? I've already read this, but evidently it was listed differently, so when I checked the isbn #, it seemed as though this would be something new for me. You know what else?Since I had entirely forgotten everything about it, I had fun reading this for the first second time! <--perks of a bad memory!My 13 year old read this one with me (always fun!), and he seemed to like it as much as I did, so I'm pretty sure you don't have to have read any of the novels to follow along.Ok. I'm lazy [...]

    2. 2/7/18 - ON SALE for $2.99:amzn/2BNUcoGReviewed by: Rabid ReadsPatricia Briggs is the author I'm most looking forward to meeting at Dragon Con next weekend, so when I stumbled over the graphic novelization of the first book in her Mercy Thompson series (that I'd apparently one-clicked and forgotten), I decided a quick refresh was in order. Especially after seeing, "all new, never before published story," in the lower right corner of the book cover. *kicks aluminum can*But I'll get to that later. [...]

    3. Thanks to NetGalley and Dynamite Entertainment for providing me with this ARC.  I was a little excited about a Mercy Thompson comic series.  I love the medium, at its best, and I love Patricia Briggs and Mercy.  It could have been a match made in somewhere really great.  But.The positive: I think the story was pared down very well.  It's a massive challenge, to take a 288-page novel and morph it into a series of - what, 40-odd-page issues?  The whole picture-is-worth-1000-words trope doesn [...]

    4. "In this house we eat our cookie dough like civilized women - with a spoon."First I want to point out that I absolutely loved the depiction of the fighting wolves at the beginning of Chapter 3. Would love to have it as a wallpaper.I'm not going to go through the story line because it follows Mercy's first book exactly. It begins with the werewolf attack on Mac and ends about the time that Mercy, Adam, and Samuel are in the van together headed back home.I'm not crazy about the way Woo illustrates [...]

    5. This is the first time I've read a graphic novel. Yes, I know, that's shocking since I think most people probably have read at least one by the time they reach my age. I read tons of Archie comic books as a kid, but that's about as close as it got because I just had the misguided impression that graphic novels were all about superhero characters or Anime or was 'a guy thing'. Also, I was an idiot. I figured it out later of course, but then I just thought maybe I was 'too old' to be reading graph [...]

    6. Mercedes “Mercy” Thompson runs a mechanic shop in the Tri-Cities area. Life is pretty ho-hum until Mac, a 16-year old werewolf, appears asking for a job. Mercy agrees, but there is something about Mac that is startlingly different. An attack on the local Alpha, Adam, the abduction of his daughter, Jesse, and the murder of Mac is just the beginning.Patricia Briggs' Moon Called was an enjoyable Urban Fantasy novel. Mercy Thompson was a likeable character, the story was interesting, the werewol [...]

    7. Moon Called, Vol 1 – Graphic Novel by Patricia Briggs* I received a copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review*Moon Called Vol 1 contains the first four issues of this comic. This graphic novel takes us back to the beginning of the Mercy novels. Mercy is a coyote with the ability to shift at will but was raised with werewolves. She’s a mechanic that just wants to run her garage.I love the Mercy series and was very pleased with the way this graphic novel turned out. It [...]

    8. I absolutely love the Mercy Thompson books and was excited for the opportunity to read this book. Thank you to NetGalley and Dynamite Entertainment for providing me with this ARC.While an incredibly accurate retelling of the first book, starting with Mac being attacked by wolves up to Adam, Mercy and Samuel returning home, I wasn't particularly wowed by the graphic version.I will say the artwork is nicely done, but after reading 6 books in this series, I have a picture of the characters in my he [...]

    9. Review courtesy of All Things Urban FantasyI’m not usually a graphic novel fan. I’m too impatient to take everything in and tend to gobble down the text and turn the page with out really taking in all the illustrations. It’s a bad habit that I can’t seem to break. But this was the first graphic novel I’ve read on my iPad and that made all the difference. I could restrict myself to one panel at a time and absorb both the text and the illustrations. I’m still not a complete convert to [...]

    10. Having read (and loved) the book, I eagerly awaited this adaptation. Sadly, I found it to be a little lacking. The format forces the story to be condensed, true. Yet there was something in the pacing and in the way that events were retold that shifted the story into a harsher version than the book. If this had been my introduction to Mercy and her world, I likely would not have gone beyond this volume. I'll gladly admit that I love the books and re-read them often. And as I do enjoy a well-done [...]

    11. Graphic novels are great, Urban Fantasy books are great. Urban fantasy books adapted into graphic novels? Not so great. I don't really get the whole concept. I've read several graphic novel adaptations of books I really love - this one and others adapting works by Jim Butcher and Laurell K. Hamilton. They all feel like pale imitations of the original. I persist because I really enjoy the stories and get excited about experiencing them through a new medium. The only Graphic Novel/UF Book adaptati [...]

    12. Mercedes Thompson is a VW mechanic and a shifter. She has a boy show up looking for work, he’s a new werewolf. He does not know what happened to him or really what he is. There are men chasing him and threatening to cage him. They are dangerous and Mercy fights to save him. Adam the local Were-Pack Alpha steps in and leads the chase to the truth behind the boys change. Brett Booth is one of my favorite artists and he does not disappoint with his cover. Amelia Woo’s work is beautiful too, art [...]

    13. I had to read a graphic novel for a book club of which I'm a member. I chose Brigg's Alpha/Omega series along with the 8 volume serial of Brigg's Mercy Thompson, Moon Called. Both are graphic novels based on Brigg's series of novels of the same names. The Mercy Thompson set is well done, and I thought the artwork is amazing. Not as much with Alpha and Omega. Love the cover, but the story artwork doesn't fit with the character descriptions from the books which threw me a bit. Neither is bad, but [...]

    14. I like to get a refresher of a series after it's been a while since I read it. It was nice to get this with Moon Called, also with pictures. Although, the male characters did not look the way I expected them to. They almost looked tooI guess non-alpha male! They were a bit scrawny and weak looking to me! Adam even appeared like he was kind of nerdy! That is not at all how I picture him! But, Mercy was beautiful and basically looked like I expected.It was nice to have the Bonus story of Mac's ori [...]

    15. Always interesting to see the interpretation of a novel to graphic novel and to see favourite characters turned into a visual representation.

    16. I loved this graphic novel retelling of moon called. the artwork is amazing, the story was just as fun as it was in the book, and I every page of it.

    17. I love this series in novel form, but wasn't too impressed with the graphic novel. Didn't care for the artwork either--it seemed almost silly.

    18. One of my 2017 reading challenges is to read a graphic novel. I have never read one before, and it is a little out of my comfort zone so I picked an adaptation for one of my favourite urban fantasy series which is the Mercy Thompson series by Patricia Briggs. This volume combines the first four single-issue graphic novels for the Mercy Thompson: Moon Called series. It continues with single issues #5-8, which are combined in Mercy Thompson: Moon Called, Volume 2.This was a quick read that I finis [...]

    19. 4 stars I read Moon Called, more like 7 years ago (wow, the time flies so fast!), so read this graphic adaption of Moon Called can be considered as new experience. I need to re-read Moon Called again, since back then I read the Indonesia-translation version which have messy translation and so many typos. Also, the publisher didn't continue to publish the rest, huh!Amelia Woo once draw for the two final chapter of Homecoming, also graphic novel that serve as a prequel of Moon Called. No wonder he [...]

    20. Decent enough adaptation. Not sure I buy most of the choices made on the character art. Mercy as a coyote is done pretty well. And I like Jesse pretty well, and Mercy herself is not bad. Actually Mac is done well as is Zee. What I don't appreciate are the werewolves, especially the good guys as humans. They mostly don't capture the gravitas and yes I know they are supposed to look young. Anyway, not a bad book, though it doesn't really add much - it's nice to see this in graphic form. 3.5 of 5.

    21. Not a fan of the art style. Also I wasn't a big fan of the flow of the panels. It was confusing. Overall, the story still makes sense though and the essential points of the story.

    22. So fun! This is my favorite of all the graphic novels so far for Mercy Thompson. The character design is excellent, the writing is still fun, and the action is all there. I'm dying to start Vol. 2!

    23. I love the world of Patricia Briggs' Mercy Thompson series so when I discovered that there was a graphic novel that coincided with her first novel in the series I had to jump up and get it. I am not terribly familiar with graphic novels and my review will probably reflect this.The storyline is basically that a young girl mechanic runs her own shop in the Tri-cities area of Washington state. She is not just a mechanic, but also a rare coyote shifter. Mercy is not alone because there is a whole su [...]

    24. The supernatural community is beginning to reveal itself to the wider world, but not everyone is out of the closet yet. Mercy Thompson is a shapeshiter with the power to turn into a coyote. She spends her days working as a Volkswagen mechanic. When a young, scared werewolf named Mac comes to her looking for help, Mercy gives him a job. But trouble is following Mac, and by agreeing to help him out, Mercy ends up getting tied up in it all. Mercy Thompson: Moon Called is a graphic adaptation of the [...]

    25. Previously I had read the first three books in Briggs' Mercy Thompson book series. The series is pretty good but I just didn't like Briggs' writing style all that much so I stopped reading it. When I saw the eGalley for a graphic novel series based off of the book series on netgalley(dot)com I thought I would give it a read and see if I liked it better than the full length novels. The adaptation was very well done and I enjoyed reading it.People checking out this graphic novel probably already k [...]

    26. Mercedes Thompson isn't your average mechanic, and her customers aren't your average customers. Working on a vampire's VW bus and living next door to an alpha werewolf is just apart of everyday life for Mercy, who happens to also be a skinwalker – a shape shifting coyote. But as long as she keeps her head down, her pet cat off the hot neighbour's couch and her junk cars out of her back yard, she is tolerated by the local fae, vampires, witches and werewolves alike. Then Mac comes along, all pi [...]
