Douglas Adams' The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy: Authorized Collection (Comic) Reviews
A good adaptation. I often wonder what the motion picture would have been like if it were filmed in the early 80s. It would probably look something like this.It's funny, I find it hard to picture Ford Prefect as anyone other than Mos Def, now.
I couldn't believe I found this comic book at my uni library. HA! Afterall, I love sci-fi.
Have saw the serial and the movies and read the books individually and as omnibus and different sets, hardback, still in my library, says a lot. Date wrong, just saw it to review. also listened to radio ones of course
Severely abridged, which was frustrating, and featuring a Ford Prefect who looks and sounds nothing like Mos Def*, also frustrating. Also, sadly, the ink in my library's copy is fading badly -- everything is still legible, with effort, but for how much longer?Still, worth it for the short, sharp nostalgia trip.* I know, right? I hardly ever switch my mental images of a classic book for a movie not even made until I was an adult, but it seems that Mos Def is my definitive Ford Prefect now.
First of all - I love Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, that's why I couldn't resist this. Unfortunately it's severely abridged, but that was to be expected. The German version of it is printed in standard paperback format, it feels as if they just scaled comic pages down. That makes it rather difficult to read, the writing is really small at times. That's why I only gave it 3 Stars, because I think a comic should not only have a good story but be visually appealing and easily readable.
This was a fun book to readFound this in the libary of the school where I work. I read and loved Douglas Adams books and think everyone could read and enjoy them. This is a graphic novelish version of the story that brings bank fun memories.
While this might be horribly abridged, I still find this to be one of the staples of my Hitchhiker's canon. Really funny with awesome artwork. Super enjoyable :)
Now I'm going to have to read the book. Gave me some good chuckles. I'm sure the novel is better than the comic.
eine nette comicversion des anhalters, die jedenfalls näher an das feeling herankommt als es jedem film bisher gelungen ist.
