'Scorpia: The Graphic Novel' by Antony Johnston and Anthony Horowitz with art by Emma Vieceli is the 5th graphic novel based on the Alex Rider graphic novel series.
Alex is on a class trip to Italy, but he is also following up on the one word clue he's been given previously: Scorpia. What he finds is a shadow organization that may have had ties to his father. Alex wants to find out more. When he gets recruited in to Scorpia, they want to train him to be a killer, but he doesn't want to. They send him on a mission to MI6 to assassinate, but what will Alex do?
I'm familiar with this series, but I've not read any of them. The story is fine, but seems a bit morally ambiguous. Alex seems confused about who he is, but he's a teenager, so is suppose that is normal. I found the art to be lacking, and very unimpressive. The story is also dialogue heavy at times, and that made it feel ponderous to read.
I received a review copy of this graphic novel from Candlewick Press and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for allowing me to review this graphic novel.
I had a good mindset goin into this book because all of the other books in the Alex Rider series were pretty good and his new book Raven's Gate was pretty good to. But I was suprised when I read the book at how much different it was. It wasn't good at all it was just OK. Then the ending came and it was extremely bad. I would not reccomend this book to anyone!
