The Supernaturalist: The Graphic Novel

Adapted by: Eoin Colfer and Andrew Donkin

First line: Are we nearly there yet?

Why you should read this book: Life sucks for Cosmo Hill, an orphan whose room and board is covered by his participation in horrible, non-consensual product-testing experiments, until he escapes the orphanage in a car accident. Cosmo alone is no match for the technology of Satellite City, but lucky Deus ex Machina, the Supernaturalists, a group of kids who fight invisible parasites, stumble upon him and decide he's a spotter, capable of seeing these weird blue blobs of putative evil. Except everyone's wrong about everything.

Why you shouldn't read this book: It really didn't seem to make a lot of sense to me, and it lacked character development and believability; possibly, the full version of the story is more interesting and less disjointed.
