Review : Mercy Thompson – Moon Called Volume 1, Patricia Briggs

Mercy Thompson Comic – Moon Called #1 by Patricia Briggs

March 8th, 2011 (US)
Dynamite Entertainment


Mercy Thompson inhabits two worlds without truly belonging to either. To the human inhabitants of the Tri-Cities she’s an oddity, a female mechanic operating her own garage. To the town’s darker residents, werewolves, vampires, and fae, she’s a walker, a last-of-her-kind magical being with the power to become a coyote. Mercy warily straddles the fine line dividing our everyday world from that darker dimension… ’till a boy, mauled by vicious werewolves and forever changed by the attack and on the run from those who committed the crime, appears at her door. Now her two worlds are about to collide!

Outnumbered and out-muscled, can Mercy possibly save the boy… or even herself?

My review

This comic is much better than Homecoming with its awful drawings, especially of Adam and Stefan. Mercy doesn’t look like a native American a lot, but she is pretty. The most successful are Bran and Samuel’s illustrations.

The story is the same as the first novel of Mercy Thompson series. It’s a pleasure to enter into this story once again. The comic is very faithful to the novel.
