    3.5 stars Introduction Now, I will be honest here I knew that the Hardy Boys existed in various books for decades now, but I was never able to pick up the series until just recently or at least pick up amodern day take on the classic book series in graphic novel format So, when I heard that Scott Lobdell, who was known for writing many superhero comic books in the past, was writing this series, I just had to see for myself what this series was all about What is this stor 3.5 stars Introduction Now, I will be honest here I knew that the Hardy Boys existed in various books for decades now, but I was never able to pick up the series until just recently or at least pick up amodern day take on the classic book series in graphic novel format So, when I heard that Scott Lobdell, who was known for writing many superhero comic books in the past, was writing this series, I just had to see for myself what this series was all about What is this story about In this volume, Frank and Joe Hardy, along with their friends Callie and Iola try to find the stolen treasure from the Middle East called the Ocean of Osyria after their friend Chet Morton was framed of stealing this priceless treasure It turns out that when Chet was doing an online bidding, he unknowingly came across the Ocean of Osyria, which was actually stolen and placed for bidding Now Joe, Frank, Callie and Iola have to journey to the Middle East to find out who framed Chet and to also get the Ocean of Osyria back What I loved about this story The premise When I heard that Scott Lobdell was writing amodernized take on Franklin W Dixon s classic Hardy Boys series, I just had to check this series out and see how well Scott Lobdell was able to handle this series I actually loved the way that Scott Lobdell characterized both Frank and Joe s relationship with each other as it is clear that they truly care about each other and yet they are always being snarky with each other I also loved their relationship with Chet Morton, his sister Iola and Callie as it shows that they have a close relationship with each other and that they will do anything to protect each other, especially in trying to get Chet out of jail after he was framed.Some of Lea Hernandez s artwork I mentioned that I liked some of Lea Hernandez s artwork because I thought that the characters looked cute and I did like how the action sequences were drawn as they were quite effective What made me feel uncomfortable about this story The reason why I gave this volume a three and a half star rating was because I felt that the story was a bit too slow in many parts and as a newcomer to the Hardy Boys series, this volume did not explain much about how the Hardy Boys got into solving mysteries or giving us a case where the Hardy Boys start to realize that they were made for solving cases Also, the artwork can be a little too scratchy in places to the point where you do not quite understand what kind of action is taking place at that time Also, I felt that the artwork does not work for this type of story since I expected to see artwork that was a littleintense and realistic for a story that is all about solving crimes The only thing that prevented me from giving this volume a complete three star rating was the relationships between the characters, which I really enjoyed Final Thoughts Overall, The Hardy Boys The Ocean of Osyria may have contained good chemistry between the characters and an interesting premise, but the story was just okay as the plot was a bit too slow for my tastes Hopefully, this series will get better in the next set of volumes.Review is also on Rabbit Ears Book Blog

    Read the real Hardy Boys books by Franklin W Dixon The graphic novel which I was required to read was a dry read nothing like the originals.

    Scott Lobdell was the main X Men writer for the 90 s So I basically grew up on his comics, since Marvel s mutants were my favorite characters.So I try not to miss any chance to sample any work that came after his X Men years Although, I almost missed his take on the Hardy Boys.I saw soft cover copies at my nearest National Bookstore but I was holding out for a hardback But chance came at the 2008 Comic Con International in San Diego I got to meet Scott Lobdell at the Papercutz booth I got t Scott Lobdell was the main X Men writer for the 90 s So I basically grew up on his comics, since Marvel s mutants were my favorite characters.So I try not to miss any chance to sample any work that came after his X Men years Although, I almost missed his take on the Hardy Boys.I saw soft cover copies at my nearest National Bookstore but I was holding out for a hardback But chance came at the 2008 Comic Con International in San Diego I got to meet Scott Lobdell at the Papercutz booth I got to thank him for the great and not so great X Men memories and got a hardcover copy of the first volume of the Hardy Boys graphic novel I had it signed too.As for the book, I prefer the blue banded originals The story was fine but it could really use a better artist The art style is supposed to evoke manga but it s not as dynamic.I bet the originals would do better as graphic novels I know I d be interested

    The first story in the Hardy Boys graphic novel series finds the Hardy Boys beloved pal Chet Morton charged with trying to buy an expensive artifact off an online auction site In many ways, the book tries to strike a middle ground between the traditional Hardy Boys story We get a secret government agency and we also get traditional chapter breaks like it was an actual mystery novel The art is vibrant making for a fun read We also get to see Joe and Frank s girlfriends taking an active part The first story in the Hardy Boys graphic novel series finds the Hardy Boys beloved pal Chet Morton charged with trying to buy an expensive artifact off an online auction site In many ways, the book tries to strike a middle ground between the traditional Hardy Boys story We get a secret government agency and we also get traditional chapter breaks like it was an actual mystery novel The art is vibrant making for a fun read We also get to see Joe and Frank s girlfriends taking an active part in the adventure which is a nice change.The book did take a little longer than necessary to the main plot than I would have liked In such a short book, getting into the main plot soon should be a priority I also wish than the mystery plot had been a little better drawn out as this becomes muchof an adventure Still, it s an enjoyable graphic novel that captures the Spirit of the Hardy Boys
