Full Text Reviews:

School Library Journal - 01/01/2008 Gr 5 Up-Adapted from the fantasy book of the same name, this graphic novel is beautifully illustrated and should prove an enjoyable read to fans and newbies alike. Diabolical 12-year-old genius Artemis Fowl is troubled by his father's disappearance, his mother's descent into madness, and the depletion of the family wealth. Determined to solve at least one of these problems, he hatches a brilliant plan to crack the secrets of the fairy world. Excellent use of color and shading gives the panels a tremendous sense of light with enchanting effect. Characters are expressively brought to life with fun, exaggerated style. A great addition is the inclusion of "files" from the fairy police force, with mug shots of criminals/monsters.-Dawn Rutherford, King County Library System, Bellevue, WA Copyright 2007 Reed Business Information. - Copyright 2008 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.

Booklist - 11/15/2007 Colfer’s Artemis Fowl (2001) gets gussied up in a new graphic novel version. Twelve-year-old Artemis’ criminal character and raison d’être remain unchanged from the original story, but this adaptation condenses the subtleties, while beautifully rendered watercolor artwork lends sophistication to the premise. Fairy and human asides are rendered in differently colored  boxes, making reading easier, but the book is so tightly bound that some of the artwork is compromised and some of the speech balloons are hard to see. Crossover appeal for fans of the print version may be tenuous, but this will introduce the child-villain to readers who haven’t yet caught the allure of the popular series. - Copyright 2007 Booklist.
