The Golden Compass: The Graphic Novel: Volume 2

(3) 4-6 Adapted by Stéphane Melchior. Translated by Annie Eaton. Illustrated by Clément Oubrerie. Coloring by Clément Oubrerie with Philippe Bruno. In the middle volume of the three-part graphic adaptation (first published in France), Lyra and friends, now including armored bear Iorek Byrnison and aeronaut Lee Scoresby, are attacked. Lyra is kidnapped and delivered to a laboratory, where she finds lost friend Roger and learns the terrible truth about "intercision." Dynamic panels and sketchy pen-and-ink illustrations with washes of vivid color keep the energy high.
