The Graveyard book by Neil Gaiman

The second paperback edition of a glorious two-volume, full-color graphic novel adaptation of Neil Gaiman's #1 New York Times bestselling and Newbery and Carnegie Medal-winning novel The Graveyard Book, adapted by P. Craig Russell and illustrated by an extraordinary team of renowned artists.

Inventive, chilling, and filled with wonder, Neil Gaiman's The Graveyard Book reaches new heights in this stunning adaptation. Artists Kevin Nowlan, P. Craig Russell, Galen Showman, Scott Hampton, and David Lafuente lend their own signature styles to create an imaginatively diverse and yet cohesive interpretation of Neil Gaiman's luminous novel.

Volume Two includes Chapter Six through the end of the book.@goodreads



I loved the first volume of this book when I read it from the library so I bought the first and second volumes. I'm guessing this is the end for Bod and the family unless they make one where he is out on his own, it's sad :-(

In this edition we have Bod going on in years from like 11 to 14 and then a young man going out on his own.

We all know Silas as his guardian (the vamp) and he wants to keep Bod safe inside the graveyard as the man that tried to kill him as a baby is still out there in the world looking for him. But Bod puts his foot down and says he wants to go to school. Against his better judgement, Silas decides to let Bod go, but he tells him to stay low and don't draw attention to himself. Well, that doesn't last long as Bod takes on the school bullies, but he just wants to make things right.


Then Bod can't go to school any more because it is too dangerous, and he so loved just sitting in the library reading. Anyway, so a little bit later Bod's little friend Scarlett that used to visit the graveyard moves back to town and they get to meet again when they are a little older.


But as we all know things don't stay all safe and cozy. The man named Jack that killed Bod's family and tried to kill him finds him. He's in some weird group with some other men. Not giving all of the story away! Anyway, the man had befriended Scarlett and her mom and found Bod that way.


So Bod and Scarlett go back to the graveyard to hide, well Bod has some things up his sleeve and takes care of all the men in different ways.



After all of this, Scarlett thinks Bod is a monster....sigh.. stupid girl... so Silas goes to erase her and her moms memory.


Sooooo, we get to the end with some very painful good-byes. It made me sad, don't judge me! :-) But the time has come for Bod to go live his life, without his graveyard friends :-(

I really enjoyed these two volumes of these graffic novels. It was just so cool watching Bod grow up with all of the ghosts from the graveyard and Silas.






  1. I have read a Neil Gaiman book which was his short story collection called Trigger Warning. I just loved it, and have been meaning to read more of his books every since. This is high up there on that list!

    1. I hope you get these two volumes! They are great. I need to get the book book. I haven't read the one your talking about but he has so many to choose from :-)
