The mission that started it all---now in a graphic novel format!

The first in the # 1 New York Times bestselling Alex Rider series, Stormbreaker, in a brand-new format, with bold, edgy, manga-like illustrations that bring Alex Rider to life in a way not seen before. For existing fans of the series, this graphic novel will be a must-have; for those yet to discover Stormbreaker, this will be the perfect introduction.

They told him his uncle died in an accident. He wasn't wearing his seatbelt, they said. But when fourteen-year-old Alex finds his uncle's windshield riddled with bullet holes, he knows it was no accident. What he doesn't know yet is that his uncle was killed while on a top-secret mission. But he is about to, and once he does, there is no turning back. Finding himself in the middle of terrorists, Alex must outsmart the people who want him dead. The government has given him the technology, but only he can provide the courage. Should he fail, every child in England will be murdered in cold blood.

A little bit lame. Definitely did not live up to my expectations. Oh well. Worth the read if you are Alex Rider die hard. If you're not then skip it.

Although I have not read the novels, I appreciated this graphic novel enough to want to read the others.

It was alright, though I noticed that the translation from book-to-graphic novel was a bit off. I also noticed that the graphic novel actually is based on the MOVIE rather than the book. Sabina is not introduced into the Alex Rider series until later [though in the movie she was introduced much sooner] and there were other differences... [such as "Darrius" Sayle instead of Herod Sayle] But it was fun to read, and I read it more than once in the one week I kept it.

Anyone that has read the real Stormbreaker would know that this book is fails to capture the true true story line.

Sort of intense (says W, 7) but a very good book. Good illustrations.

Almost like a summery of the novel, but a great refresher.
