Let me start by saying I love everything Jim Butcher has written. This was no exception. Obviously, the story was slimmed down and adapted to comic form but the source material is still there. Jim Butcher’s The Dresden Files: Fool Moon #4 is all about Harry Dresden and Tera West finding MacFinn after his transformation into a loup garou (a very nasty type of lycanthrope). Of course, with Harry, nothing is ever simple.

A bit of confusion leads Tera to attempt to attack Harry. He, however, doesn’t have time for it and decides to avoid the confrontation. Quickly realizing the police are looking for them, they decide to split up after finding MacFinn. Unfortunately, MacFinn gets caught…which leads Harry to calling his almost-girlfriend, Susan, for help.

I love the fact that these books are being adapted into comics, Butcher really deserves to have his work published in as many mediums as possible. The writing by Butcher and Mark Powers is rendered exceptionally well. I even like the artistic style of Chase Conley. However…sometimes the art doesn’t match up to the text of the original book. Maybe I’m being overly picky, but I don’t remember MacFinn being described as so huge. Nor do I like Harry’s character, he is supposed to be tall and lean, yes…but he look emaciated in almost every panel. Not grooving on that but I guess I can deal with it.

This series is worth buying. As is the one prior, based on Storm Front. And I’m pretty damn sure all the rest will be, too. So wander into your local comic or book shop and peruse one. You are going to love it. And once you get hooked on the comics, go buy the books…hands down, I’ve never met anyone who disliked them. With Jim helping to script the comics, you know they are guaranteed to be awesome!
