Eyebrow-raisingly, heart-stoppingly pacey adventures starring the boy every would-be teen superhero wants to be, the Alex Rider books are now available as stylish graphic novels. The medium is perfect for these adrenaline-filled stories and, in the hands of some of the best comics artists of the day, the book looks terrific. The whole story is compressed into 176 colourful pages, action conveyed entirely through the illustrations and speech-bubble dialogue and it has all the excitement and thrill of the novel – the shock ending will leave readers gaping! Great stuff for fans of Alex Rider old and new, and a super accessible version of an excellent children’s book. ~ Andrea Reece
