I'd do well to saunter down the block to the local Comic store & pre-order it.

Anyone know if there are plans to print a combined version at the end like they did with Homecoming?

This is the first I have seen of this. Excellent reason to stop by the bookstore.

For those interested, there is a signed version listed on Amazon. I don't know where else it might be available.

How did they get it signed before it was available?
Title: Re: Hopcross Jilly

I'm sure they're taking pre-orders, Janilee.

Evil Manipulators are withholding it, working people up into a frenzy of anticipation and greed. >:( As with drops of blood hitting the water near sharks, we figuratively circle and search for our prey. Leaping from the water our jaws slash in vain as desperation grows, while the Evil Manipulators watch in glee. >D
Or, it might just be pre-orders as Patti said.

I've got my copy of the book format, and I love it. But a mistake by the artists has me annoyed.
Is this the place for a quibble with the artwork?

Can't imagine where else you'd put it.

Just use spoiler bars as needed. :)

Thanks for the input, Zealth and Patti. OK,...
When Zee is depicted the sidebar comment refers to him as "different without a glamour in place". And he looks purely Caucasian. In 'Frost Burned' he's described on p. 211, third paragraph as "his sharp-featured face was both aged and ancient, with skin the color of fumed oak." My memory tells me I have seen another description of him, using 'teak' as the descriptor. But I haven't found it on a quick check into 'Iron Kissed'. However, fumed oak is not pale white, it's darker. The Dark Smith of Drontheim should be dark.

That sort of thing bothers me too.
Title: Re: Hopcross Jilly
Post by: Patti L. on July 02, 2015, 02:51:49 pm
Not my artistic decision, though.  Did the artist get to read those descriptions?

Will this series be or is it :( available as regular paperback (or kindle if I must)books?
Real comic books are one thing; graphic novels "a horse of a different color."
I love and own all of Patricia Briggs books, and am drooling for Hopcross Jilly.  But not as graphic novels. :(
Title: Re: Hopcross Jilly
Post by: Patti L. on July 10, 2015, 11:01:34 am
Probably not, it was specifically created as a graphic novel, just like "Homecoming".
Title: Re: Hopcross Jilly
Post by: Janilee on August 10, 2015, 08:48:54 pm
 :D Read it!

I agree with BillG, Zee is not quite right.

I do like that Jesse gets to save herself.

I find it interesting that I find it easier to read a story with two viewpoints than I do a graphic novel with two viewpoints.

Nah. Graphic novels are much easier told when following one perspective. Stories have so much room to build and you get a lot of the inner monologue. In graphic novels that just doesn't happen. Having two view points can make things a little annoying, especially when you're used to books.

It didn't bug me as much, but I'm as big on graphic novels and comics as I am on books.  :)

I agree with BillG and it bothers me too. It seems almost racistic, but maybe the artist got only the information that Zee is a German fae and a smith. That would explain not only the wrong skin color, but also the clothing, which contradict not only the description in FB, but also information in FT.

Reminds me of Ben Aaronovitch's complaint about the artist for his Rivers of London graphic novels initially depicting American police cars rather than British ones. The paint jobs are quite different. And book covers...don't get me started.
Title: Re: Hopcross Jilly
Post by: BillG on January 24, 2019, 02:32:04 am
Book covers ... like the one for a Zane Grey western, showing a character firing a pair of well depicted percussion revolvers? That had empty brass flying around as if they were autoloaders?
