GRAPHIC NOVEL REVIEW: Cemetery Girl 1: Cemetery Girl - Charlaine Harris, Christopher Golden, Don Kramer

Release Date: 02/01/14


Calexa Rose Dunhill was just fourteen when she woke in a cemetery. Bruised, bloody and left for dead, with no memory of her previous life, she took a new name from the headstones that surrounded her. Now, three years on, Calexa still lives in Dunhill Cemetery, struggling with the desire to know her true identity - and the all-consuming fear of what she might discover when she does. Then, when she witnesses a gang of teenagers staging a stunt that goes horribly, fatally wrong, Calexa Rose Dunhill discovers she has a unique ability. One she cannot control...


A brand new story from two cracking authors in a wonderful graphic novel format that not only brings the story to life but will bring them to a whole new audience. The artwork is wonderful and with the imagination of Charlaine and Christopher, really does bring the whole thing together and whilst I was initially worried about the differing styles between graphic novel scripting and novel writing, it did work out wonderfully.

All round a first outing in a brand new series and one that I thought was a good bit of fun as it was not only dark but brought something new to the fore. Great fun.
