In Odd We Trust (Odd Thomas: Graphic Novel, Bk 1)
In Odd We Trust - Odd Thomas: Graphic Novel, Bk 1 Author:Dean Koontz, Queenie Chan (Illustrator) "Meet a young man named Odd... who helps the dead get even." — Odd Thomas is a regular nineteen-year-old with an unusual gift: the ability to see the lingering spirits of the dead. To Odd, it's not such a big deal. And most folks in sleepy Pico Mundo, California, are much more interested in the irresistible pancakes Odd whips up at ... more »the local diner. Still, communing with the dead can be useful. Because while some spirits only want a little company... others want justice. When the sad specter of a very frightened boy finds its way to him, Odd vows to root out the evil suddenly infecting the sunny streets of Pico Mundo. But even with his exceptional ability -- plus the local police and his pistol-packing girlfriend, Stormy, backing him -- is Odd any match for a faceless stalker who's always a step ahead... and determined to kill again?

This book was okay. I read it at the recommendation of my hubby, since he said it was a bit of a prequel to the other books in the series. I'm not big on graphic novels and this was no exception. Luckily, it took less than an hour to read and got it off my TBR list.

I wasn't crazy about the comic book format. I think the story loses alot when that format is used, especially for a very descriptive writer like Koontz. The story line was ok, though. I liked the "before Stormy died" timeframe.
