Mercy Thompson Homecoming - Patricia Briggs

TITLE: Mercy Thompson Homecoming

AUTHOR: Patricia Briggs & Illustrator: Francis Tsai, Amelia Woo

SUMMARY: Mercy Thompson is a walker, a magical being with the power to transform into a coyote. She lives on the fine line dividing the everyday world from a darker dimension, observing the supernatural community while standing apart.

When Mercy travels to the Tri-Cities of Washington for a job interview, she quickly finds herself smack-dab in the middle of a gang war between rival packs of werewolves. And as if fangs and fur weren't bad enough, Mercy must deal with the scariest creature of all: her mother, who is convinced that Mercy is making a mess of her life and determined to set her daughter on the right course.

The thrilling adventures of Mercy Thompson-Moon Called, Blood Bound, and Iron Kissed-have topped the New York Times bestseller list. Now Mercy makes her comics debut in an exclusive new story created by Patricia Briggs. Mercy Thompson: Homecoming is sure to please longtime fans and capture new ones with its mix of unforgettable characters and thrilling supernatural intrigue. - From Publisher

REVIEW: I love Mercy. It's one of my favorite series and having the graphic novel just makes me deliriously happy. Is it my favorite Mercy installment? No. But I still enjoyed. It was fun going back to the beginning and seeing Z in his state and Mercy meeting Stefan and Adam. It was just all so much fun.

The graphics were well done. Not 100% how I view Mercy or Adam in my mind but they in no way looked foreign. If you haven't jumped into the series I recommend starting with the books and then jumping into the graphic novel. There's something about knowing the characters that makes learning about some of the previous events much better.

I want more!
