If you’ve read my earlier post on the first Hardy Boys Graphic Novel I read (#17 Word Up!) you’ll remember that I was a bit disappointed in how the boys were portrayed and just how things had changed from the last time I read or watched the Hardy Boys. Well that’s not the case with this one! Guess I should have started from the first issue rather than jumping to the middle – oh well – who knew?
The story behind this graphic novel was exactly what I was expecting – the brothers embarking on their own detective mission – it was fast, it was adventurous, they brought the girls along – it was great! It left me believing that the Hardy Boys are still the Hardy Boys I remember. Ok I’m sure you’re wondering -well you didn’t really like #17 but you like #1 – what about the ones in between? Well I have to admit that I think I’m going to try a few more in between to see where the change happens – maybe if I follow it through I might have a different view on the graphic novel series. On that note – stay tuned and join me on my walk through the Hardy Boys graphic novels.
