    Estaba en Amazon buscando Lord Of Shadows y OH SORPRESA!!! Me aparece esta novela gráfica al final de la página. NI SIQUIERA SABIAMOS DE ESTE PROYECTO, PERO ME DA IGUAL, PORQUE YO LO QUIERO. Y lo mejor de todo es que sale en unos meses!!!

    I consider myself as a dedicated fan of Cassandra Clare's 'The Shadowhunter Chronicles' books. (The Mortal Instruments, The Infernal Devices, The Dark Artifices) I don't read much from the Graphic Novel/Comic part of the book community but I can say that I'm in love with this book. I love to draw and one of my favourite artists and influences is Cassandra Jean, who was the illustrator for this book and creates fanart of Cassie's characters from the Shadow World.The comic includes coloured art of I consider myself as a dedicated fan of Cassandra Clare's 'The Shadowhunter Chronicles' books.

The rest of the book is in black and white, which was slightly disappointing but I got over it as I jumped into the story. The visual representation and the scenes in the book are so accurate, it was absolutely amazing and I don't have a single complaint about it!I loved The Mortal Instruments graphic novel and I realized that it was just part one, which I assumed was another way of saying the first book, City of Bones., and as I reached the end I noticed that there are not many pages left in the book for it to be over. If you have read City of Bones, the scene where the main characters leave Magnus' party after first meeting him to go after Simon had been captured is where the graphic novel ends.I was slightly disappointed but it just made my excitement for The Mortal Instruments: The Graphic Novel Vol. 2 so much more hyped!I highly suggest this book to anyone a fan of The Shadowhunter Chronicles and I hope you love it as much as I do!

    I have been waiting for this for so long! I finally got my hands on it! This was really really good. The art is wonderful, and it just gave me so many nostalgic feelings! It really just reminded me why I love this series so much. I did miss some of the dialogue that wasn't included from the original City of Bones novel, and a few scenes that were cut. I wish it was longer!!! It was a very fun quick read. I read it in one sitting, in about an hour. It does only cover about 1/4 of the first book, I have been waiting for this for so long!

But it was just so fun seeing the characters again in the early stages of the story, and knowing what's to come for them in the future. #ShadowhunterFandomForever

    So, for those of you who don't know, the artist for this manga adaption, Cassandra Jean, is the one behind those incredibly gorgeous Shadowhunter Tarot Cards which have been on my wishlist forever, and that I know a fair few of you guys have already! She's also behind the Illustrated History of Notable Shadowhunters and Denizens of Downworld too! There are some seriously gorgeous colour pages in this volume, with a page for each of the main characters and I was living for it, like I want to fram So, for those of you who don't know, the artist for this manga adaption, Cassandra Jean, is the one behind those incredibly gorgeous Shadowhunter Tarot Cards which have been on my wishlist forever, and that I know a fair few of you guys have already! She's also behind the Illustrated History of Notable Shadowhunters and Denizens of Downworld too! There are some seriously gorgeous colour pages in this volume, with a page for each of the main characters and I was living for it, like I want to frame them they're so gorgeous! The detailing is really well done throughout the manga, as is the art in general to be honest. Cassandra has thrown her own unique twist on the characters, and each page features her own art style...but she really captures what I envisioned the settings and characters looking like! After the jolt to the system that is the TV show, it was nice to see an adaption that lives up to the books, and is exactly how I imagined it! I've missed the less high tech Institute! The characters have some brilliant facial expressions and reactions that convey plenty and add to each scene. Jace's in particular add an air of mischief to him and just looking at him, even when he's not saying anything, you get that vibe! The demons are nice and creepy too! There'a a nice fast pace, and the volume moves along speedily with great attention to detail, introducing us to each of the main characters. Another little detail is Clary and Jace. You can seriously see the size difference between the two of them and it was a nice little touch! I also really loved how this adaption shows you all the little details you might have missed or that you didn't really think too much about when reading the books, like Clary's drawings that are mentioned casually, get featured in this volume as you see her actually doing it, if that makes sense? Like when you read about her doing it you just kind of read it and then don't focus on it too much. It was nice to see one of her character traits highlighted! Characters facial expressions too, to a certain extent. You read how the characters feeling, but I personally didn't picture exactly how they'd be looking during this scene or that, it added another dimension to the story for me! There's plenty of humour, what did you expect really!? And the story pulls you in. There's an interesting world, it follows the books brilliantly and it's just a lot of fun all round! It really does put the TV show to shame on the adaption front! I can tell this is going to be a lot of fun, and I'm intrigued as to how many volumes it'll run for, and how many of the books it's covering! Volume One is all about getting us warmed up. We're introduced to the characters, the world, various elements to it and what's going on. The plot is just starting to kick off and next volume should really get going and go more in depth with the plot as we track down Jocelyn! There's some nice creepy and ominous moments throughout, but the ending really does end on an ominous note! I hate to play favourites but I really am loving this adaption!

    I love Cassandra Jeans artwork. Love it. It’s great rereading this story in a new media and I can’t wait for the next one. I enjoyed the little extra scene that wasn’t in the book and seeing the crazy height difference between Clary and the rest of the gang, hence her always being called little girl. The only thing I didn’t care for was the dot shading for Simon’s hair, at times it was faded and wasn’t bad but I wish it would have been left white or shaded grey.

    This is such a faithful adaption! And the characters all look so close to how I imagined them! There’s a nice new scene with Isabelle and Simon, which was a cool surprise! And the iconic flirting between Magnus and Alec was SUCH a cute page! I can’t wait for the next volume! I hope they come out fairly frequently because the wait is going to be killer! 5/5 Stars!

    I loved this so much. Cassandra Jean' s artwork is so close to how I imagine the characters in my head, and she's done such an amazing job of bringing the Shadow World to life! I can't wait to see more!

    I love these books and getting to see it in a different form is amazing. I flew through this today and I can't wait to get the rest of the series when it comes out.
