    I'm doing something I'm calling the Nick Experiment for my review of this one. Which means, I made my kid read this book, and then tell me what he thought about it.Good parenting, right?No.See, when I read it, I thought it was pretty lame. But every time I write a less than positive review about a middle-grade reader, some jackass always eventually makes a comment about how You're not the target audience!, or How would you know what kids like?! My little Johnny loved this one!...something along those line.My son is in middle school, 8th grade to be exact. Ta-Da!Target. Audience. My thoughts after I read it:You're kind of dropped into the middle of a story that's already happening, and there's not enough backstory given throughout the entire thing. Kind of makes it had to figure out why these kids ended up fighting this weirdo anti-magic government.The names of the bad guys are pretty juvenile.The One Who Makes The Weapons, is an actual name for the dude who...makes weapons.The One is the name of the guy who's in charge.None of the characters are very fleshed out, and I couldn't care less about any of them. Both of the main characters are bland, and the side characters are even more so.Art? Nope.It's cartoony, but it gets a pass, since it's supposed to be for kids.My Kid's Thoughts* after sitting on the couch for about 10 minutes reading*Hey, Mom? Are you sure this is the 1st volume? I mean, what happened before they, you know, started fighting these guys?Heh. Point for Mom.*after he's done reading*Me: So what did you think?Him: It was kinda dumb.Me: Why?Him: Well, the names were stupid. The One Who Is The One? I mean, I guess being in charge of everyone could give you a big ego, but...Me: What did you think of the main characters Whisty and Whit?Him: I dunno.Me: Did you like them?Him: *shrugs* Me: Ok. What about the story itself?Him: *blank look*Me: Like, did you think it was cool that they could travel to these Portals?Him: Not really. I mean, it seemed kind of pointless. Besides, why call something the Shadowlands, when nothing casts a shadow? And how dumb were those kids that got lost in there...*wiggles fingers oogga-booga style*...The Lost Ones? Stop going there if you're gonna turn into a zombie or whatever. Seriously, if I thought there was a chance I'd get stuck there, I just wouldn't go.Me: Good point. Oh, and don't do drugs.Him: What?Me: Nothing. Keep going. Tell me what you thought about their magical powers.Him: Um, I guess it was ok, but I don't know why they were outlawed.Me: Yeah, I think that goes back to the no backstory thing.Him: Uh-huh. Like, why was Whit still hung up on his dead girlfriend. All it did was show you a picture of her, and then say he still loved her. Me: I thought it would have been better if they had explained that one, too. Also, girls carry lots of diseases, so sex is not a good idea.Him: What? Mom! I don't want to talk about...Ugh. Can I go now?Me: Almost. So do you want to read more about this?Him: No. It was boring.Me: Too bad, I've already checked out the second book from the library, and I need your opinion on it.Him: *sighs* Can I go play video games now?Me: I love you too.Edit: We did figure out that this is some sort of a spin-off of the series after we read the second comic. If you haven't already read the books (and we haven't) this probably won't make sense to you.

    If you have not read Witch and Wizard prior to picking this up, STOP. You will enjoy this a lot more if you have read the book first. Anyways, I love graphic novels based from books and this one is a great example. The characters look exactly what I thought of in my head when I read the book. I loved how the authors used the graphic novel genre to enhance the story, like the weasel blushing at the end, that's not something that would be included in the book, but used really well in this setting. I haven't read the Gift yet, but this has re-whet my appetite for this series. I loved Witch and Wizard and this was a great installment to the series.

    A graphic novel falling between the first novel in this urban fantasy series and the one due next month.The Allgood siblings fight a plot by The One Who Is The One to invade the Shadowland, that dimension kids with magic use as a shortcut highway from one area to the next.

    For a reader who wants ambitions from writers, James Patterson will always be disappointing. Patterson crafted himself into a popular fiction machine on purpose, and there are plenty of readers who won't care. Those who do, who care about all the shortcuts he takes, will mildly despise Patterson. There's just no way around that.Witch & Wizard is the Patterson young adult property that's more or less the Patterson version of Harry Potter crossed with The Hunger Games (I came up with that before noticing Patterson's own copy editor did, too). And what matters most to Patterson is keeping the action going. He doesn't care about anything else.This graphic novel adaptation of the second book in the series (more or less; supposedly it could be for the first one or merely in the middle, or otherwise this observation doesn't matter at all in the Patterson mindset) tosses the reader directly into the action. And action happens. The problem, again, being that Patterson doesn't care how much thought he puts into any of this, just so long as he has something new for readers.Take it or leave it. You don't win by reading just as you don't particularly lose, either. It's the James Patterson model. That's literally all you need to know. Rinse and repeat, next book...

    This is a graphic novel by James Patterson. It threw me off at first. I had become used to reading the Japanese version which read from back to front and from right to left. In this story, the "New Order" has seized most power and a small resistance is trying to prevent the total takeover. There are three dimensions of existence. Our heroes, Whit and Wisty have magical powers as well. So the story starts. The art is excellent and the book itself is of terrific quality.

    Said to be as delightful as The Harry Potter series and Hunger games. Didn't bring me to that place. Enjoyable aspects, characters are cool. Exciting events, but I'm not gathering more of the series....which as you know about me is something I do with an author whose series I enjoy. (Sorry)

    I personally did not like this graphic novel. It was overly dramatic and corny. I mean "The One Who is The One" as a name come on. Parts like that made me as a reader feel shafted and upset, but this is for a younger audience and perhaps its simplicity is beneficial. I did like the sense of friendship and comradeship as the gang of youth face an army of adults. The dystopian society was different than normal and the realm to the afterlife was an interesting idea. I liked the realm to the afterword, because it helped the friends in the story cope with death more readily, because their friends were not dead, but spirits. It was interesting, but in my imagination poorly done.

    This is a story after the first book, Witch & Wizard. It is the continued story of two young adults, Whit and Wisty, and a group of other teenagers that are being hunted down by the New Order. This edition has Wisty, Whit, and Byron Swain breaking into the New Orders building and stealing a hard drive that has information that they need to have.After learning what the New Order is up to, the teenagers break up into two groups. One is to go to the Shadowlands and recruit as many half-lights as possible while the other group is to find out about some devices that are being made.I admit that I have not read the Witch & Wizard series yet so I didn’t know what to expect. I recommend that you do so, it make everything easier to understand. From there, this is a short graphic novel, one edition. The artwork is standard graphic novel. I got this as an Adobe Digital Edition and tried to put it on my Nook. You are not going to be able to read this with the Nook or Kindle. I just read it off my computer. In the end, I am interested in the rest of the story so I will be reading Witch & Wizard at some point and will probably get a subscription to the graphic novel. If you follow the series, I think this is a good way to add to it if you like graphic novels.I received this free from netGalley in exchange for an honest review.

    The main characters is this story are teenage siblings named Whit and Wisty. Their problem is the enemy, "New Order", is planning to steal people's magic powers to power portals. These portals lead to a place called Shadowland. They plan to take control of all the different dimensions until the New Order controls everything. Wisty and Whit are nervous because its their first big mission with the new powers they discovered. But because they are still teenagers, Whit and Wisty don't understand how critical this mission is to Earth, as well as many other places. Throughout the story, the two kids get help from the rest of their gang and some old friends. Groups of them join together to find Intel on the war that the New Order is trying to start. Once finding themselves in enemy territory, they realize that the New Order is using cursed people called curves to open portals faster and keep them opened longer. This would be extremely helpful to the New Order in their conquering of all the worlds. This graphic novel, part one of a series, is a fictional book that will teleport you out of this world, into the land of reading...

    This deserves a 2.5. The book was my first trip into the Witch and Wizard world. As a graphic novel, it wasn't a win. The art was reminiscent of Ben 10 and Archie, maybe Scoobie and the gang, and the writing was bleh. Even the bubble placement, something which normally doesn't even register, left a bit to be desired. I have to add, the artist may have not been to blame for the book's shortcomings, it could have been the producers or ink. The original ideas provided by the artist were a little darker than the final version. If they had stuck to darker Batman and Robin-like images throughout the work, and left the bright colors for only the kids, it would have created a nice juxtaposition between the shadowlands and new world and holdout areas. Instead, it was all Garfield all the time. Mostly, I would say this missed being a book suitable for everyone. The 9-12 year old boy crowd may like it ok, but for most it will leave a lot to be desired. I am not in a hurry to pick up any other graphic novels from the Witch and Wizard series, but the story was intriguing enough for me to want to try a novel.

    This graphic novel is based on the Witch and Wizard series by James Patterson. I was given the first issue of the graphic novel in exchange for an honest review. The full novel will be in stores October 2011.I was a little disappointed with this work. The beginning felt stagnant and didn't draw me in as I had hoped. About half way through I started to feel as if this was something I wanted to read. There was just enough mystery that I want to read the next installment but I didn't connect enough to the characters to really care if I read it or not.This is one of the problems with graphic novels, the development is different. I could see areas where the artist was attempting a connection but it was too far away for me. It's possible that Battle for Shadowland is not the first graphic novel series for Witch and Wizard. If that is so, then I suggest starting with the first to create a connection. If it's not, then perhaps that connection can only be made for those who have read the actual Witch and Wizard series.

    Whisty and Witt were taken away from there home one day by the new power in rule called the new order. It wasn't until they were imprisoned that they discovered that they had magical powers. With the help of Witt's dead girlfriend, they escape and discover how truly powerful they are, which also explains why the New Order wants them dead. There is a prophecy that says that there will be two children that will be able to save the world from the New Order, which explains why they want them dead. This story is told from both Whisty and Witt's point of view. It is definitely the start to a great series.

    It's probably recommended that you read Patterson's Witch & Wizard novel before checking out this graphic novel. This is a GN between the first novel and the second (the Gift). Artwork was wonderful, and captions/dialogue was easy to follow. Text was a little small, but not much can be done about that without effecting the artwork.Story follows a brother and sister who have magical abilities. They are fighting against the New Order (NO), led by a man who wants to control the Shadowland, where witches & wizards can portal through and kids who have been killed survive as ghosts. As Whit & Wisty battle the NO, the question of who will win in the end looms as the book comes to a close.

    Not going to read his other ones. WAAAAY too campy for my taste. I've read of a lot of young adult fiction...this one seemed the least polished. I know what you're thinking "But it's James Patterson!" and I'm all "I know, right?"...but that little sentence? That's the book. That's it. That's how it comes through. Very...let's call it 'straight-forward'. The world seems just too out of reach. I felt like I was reading a blog...or some sort of teen's attempt at his first fiction story. I can't even really call this cute or adorable. I didn't like ANY of the characters....just nothing really of substance for me.

    First of all, I am finding myself having trouble remembering books that are in series that come out a year or more apart. I vaguely remember reading Witch and Wizard last Dec. but I can't remember it all that well. I got the sequel a few weeks ago and plan on reading it very soon and hope that I can remember the first book as I go into the second. My husband got me the graphic novel for Christmas and I read it last night. It was pretty good. It helped me remember some of the first book. The story was pretty good. I like the story line, like I said, I just wish I could fully remember the first book better.

    I was told by a sales lady that this book was good and to give it a try. I think Patterson does a great job with the 1st and introduction to this story. It is a teen/young adult book if you venture to try it so it does have the teen mentality so keep that in mind. Patteron does a good job with descriptions of the actions that need to be taken by these "teen saviors". Does it make you feel like you are right there with them in the story - not really, but could be because it is a young adult book. Not a bad read overall.

    Harry Potter meets 1984 meets Farenheit 451 describes this book. It was a very interesting tale about two teenagers who are kidnapped from their home in the middle of the night(view spoiler)[ and begin discovering that they have magical powers which the New Order, the dictorial form of government fear. The first book was about their discovery of powers and escape from the hands of the New Order. (hide spoiler)] It will be interesting to see where they find themselves in the second book.

    As for the book, it was good. What I didn't care for was the fact that it did not say anywhere on the cover or back of the book that it was the beginning of a series. Or that it was a book for young readers. While I have nothing against reading books for young readers (some are very good as this was) it would be nice to know that there would be no resolution to the story. The story ended the way it began and said to be continued. If the author and publisher would be nice enough to say this was book one of a series I'm sure it would be appreciated.

    Read this with and to my 7yr old and my 5yr old kids, boy and girl respectively. The 7 yr old was attentive and asked very good questions. Such as Who is the One and why is that his name and then tried to get clarification of the plot. We got the feeling of kind of being thrown into the middle of a story. I almost thought maybe we missed a book and started reading a sequel. The set up of the book as a comic kept my son's interest. He is learning to read and I think this helped motivate him.

    Nice little side-episode to the adventures of Whit and Wisty as they fight the One Who Is The One. It bears to mention that you have to be at least familiar with what happens in the first book to fully understand all that happens and is mentioned. There are a couple of panels that try to give some backstory, but they don’t really do a proper job of it. I’m not sure I would’ve liked it as much if I wasn’t already familiar with the world.

    This book i would recommend for anyone who has read fang. Just like fang, they have this thing with finding out there true way of life. And for some reason both fang and this book have like something to do with there parents. This book is long but so was fang, writen by the same auther ( james patterson ) I will tell you this though at the very end it has a TO BE CONTINUED sign. I hope you read it!!!

    Graphic novel that takes place between books one and two of the Witch and Wizard series. The hypocritical and ruthless New Order (N.O.) has taken over, and the only opponents left are a handful of teenaged witches and wizards and the half-lights in Shadowland. Twins Whit and Wisty are snarky and sarcastic and determined to overthrow "The One Who Is The One." I have not read the prose books, but, thanks to the excellent prologue, had no trouble jumping right into the story.

    When I picked this up, I thought it was a graphic version of the first W & W book. But, it is actually about what takes place between the first and second book. So, since I have not read any of the novels, I was a little bit lost. I'm also somewhat "new" to the graphic novel world, so I had a hard time following the text in places. It was just "meh" to me. It didn't really make me want to run out and buy the novels.

    I don't actually know Patterson's views on religion, but in this graphic novel, he not-so-subtly uses text and expressions and descriptions that are very theological in nature, and in a derogatory and judgmental fashion. Whether he is religious or not, it was disappointing to read such unimaginative phraseology and names and concepts, as they've all been done before. The art was okay, but not what I was hoping for. I've read other Patterson books and liked them, but not this one.

    Nope. Just nope. Poor writing, horrible character names, and shoddy world building to name a few of the problems.Now I know in this case I'm really not the target audience, but I've read quite a lot of middle grade and young adult novels and graphic novels over the years, and the overall quality of this book was bottom of the pile bad.
