Description
The eagerly awaited second volume in the graphic novel adaptation of Philip Pullman's international bestseller The Golden Compass. This second volume of the graphic novel finds Lyra in the far North. With the help of Gyptian fighters, newfound witch allies, and the armored bear Iorek Byrnison, she means to rescue the children held captive by the notorious Gobblers. The stunning full-color art offers both new and returning readers a chance to experience the story of Lyra, an ordinary girl with an extraordinary role to play in the fates of multiple worlds, in an entirely unique way. Published in 50 countries with over 22 million copies sold, The Golden Compass, The Subtle Knife, and The Amber Spyglass are renowned for their engrossing storytelling and epic scope. These modern classics are must-reads for every book lover. Praise for The Golden Compass Graphic Novel, vol. 1: "The story's signature fantasies--the dæmons, the armored mercenary polar bears, and the alethiometer--are realized with compelling force (and, in the case of the dæmons, humor). [This] retelling will bring Pullman's work new fans and give previous readers new pleasure." -- Publishers Weekly, Starred "Whether this is a reader's first experience with the tale or they are already familiar with the story, they should be delighted by this rendition." -- School Library Journal "The small and detailed but very clear panels are full of expressive faces, discernible action, and moody shadowing. Readers familiar with Pullman's novel will appreciate this artistic adaptation, as will readers who simply prefer graphic novels to prose." -- Booklist
