I am a fan of the series, so was very interested in seeing an artist's concept of how the characters looked. This, I thought, was nicely done in this graphic novel and I appreciated the attention to detail. My only criticisms of the artwork are that Claire seemed too young in some panels (and occasionally too 'manga'), as did Murtagh, Jamie's godfather. Because the secondary men seemed all of an age, it was difficult sometimes to sort them out. But, all in all, an enjoyable read and addition to the series.

I got this book mostly out of curiosity since I had read the Outlander series. It was a nice reminder of the first book, although much is necessarily and understandably missing. The illustrations, directed and approved by Diana Gabaldon and executed by Hoang Nguyen, were lovely but not exceptional, in my opinion. Still the undertaking was considerable and I applaud Gabaldon for venturing into the graphic novel genre. Fans of that genre might be interested in this book and, if she continues the series, others. I, however, am not. The story is much more rich in my imagination than in a single artist's interpretation.

This is an enjoyable addition to the "Outlander" series. The script is written by Diana Gabaldon. The illustrations are by Hoang Nguyen.

This book covers basically the first third of "The Outlander" by Diana Gabaldon. However, it is told through the eyes of Murtagh (and sometimes Jamie) rather than through the eyes of Claire.

It's a fun, short read. It will only take an hour or so. The art is lovely. Reading this book made me want to revisit the original edition of "The Outlander".
