    One thought on “Vampire Academy: The Graphic Novel”

    1. When I first heard there was a graphic novel for Vampire Academy, I was ecstatic. I love the books and was excited to see the characters and scenes layed out for my visual enjoyment. Then I saw the cover.As an avid manga reader, I'm very picky about art. Disliking it will either kill the story or any chance of me even picking it up. I almost didn't pick up the Vampire Academy graphic novel. Rose is nothing like I imagined her and Lissa WHAT DID THEY DO TO YOUR FACE??? I don't really know what sh [...]

    2. 4/5 stars. St. Vladimir’s Academy isn’t just any boarding school—it’s a hidden place where vampires are educated in the ways of magic and half-human teens train to protect them. Rose Hathaway is a Dhampir, a bodyguard for her best friend Lissa, a Moroi Vampire Princess. They’ve been on the run, but now they’re being dragged back to St. Vladimir’s—the very place where they’re most in danger. . . .Rose and Lissa become enmeshed in forbidden romance, the Academy’s ruthless socia [...]

    3. What is the deal with all the graphic novels popping up?? I have nothing against them, I just don't get it. I like having my own visions of the characters, thanks.

    4. So, here's what I liked about it:1. Unlike a lot of books turned graphic novels, this one actually does the entire book in one shot. Hey, at least it's over with, right?2. The art was decent.And by that, I mean that not every guy in it looked like a chick.Other than those two things, I thought it had all of the same problems you tend to see with these kinds of books. Which means unless you've already read the original novel, the story is going to come across as disjointed, lame, and missing hunk [...]

    5. I am only judging this book on it's art, not on the actually story. I've already read this story in book form and gave it a good rating so don't badger meThe art in this graphic novel is not very good, the character designs are poor and the entire thing looks like a bad dojinshi. The only thing of detail was Dimitri's abs and they were better in my mind. Just read the book and use your imagination.Peace out.

    6. I’m a huuuuuge fan of the Vampire Academy and yes, I even liked the movie. So I was super excited when I finally decided to read this graphic novel!The story is not as complete as in the actual book (obviously), but it didn’t bother me at all. It was like having a recap of the actual book. I’ve been wanting to reread the 6 books, but you know… rereading 6 books with all the new unread books I have is pretty hard. So this graphic novel was perfect for me! I had my dose of Rose and Dimitri [...]

    7. So this was my very first graphic novel I have ever read, and I have already read Vampire Academy I have to say in actually shocked on how much I enjoyed it, it follows the story line, it's a lot easier to read then I thought it would be, and I love how quick and easy it was to read while getting to experience the story all over again just in a faster pace.I enjoyed the illustrations, they were a lot better then what I was expecting. I look forward to starting frostbite here as soon as I'm done [...]

    8. Is it just me or did Dimitri look like a 40 year old cartoon porn star? Not loved as much as the original books, obviously. I actually was afraid I may have cartoonish dreams. 2.5 to 3 Ninja-Bunneh-Dude-You-Don't-Look-Like-That-In-My-Mind starsBuddy read with Nidah

    9. It’s true I’ve been dying to get my hands on this ever since I heard it was going to be released and I can’t say I was disappointed. With the exception of the movie rights being sold, this is Vampire Academy coming to life; in picture and at its best!I admit I’m not a graphic novel fan, but I couldn’t help but love this! The illustrator has captured the characters perfectly in classical graphic form and you can’t help but love it for what it is. Staying true to the original book, the [...]

    10. Hmm. Let's see. Soooo. the art was shitty. Every guy looks like a female. Could have done so much with the Rose-Lissa connection, bond thing. I really do hate to see the potential being so wasted. I had higher expectations, because the actual books were good. La da da da, something something I finished it anyway. (I don't know if it is telling, but I don't feel like writing a whole, proper review.) Just know it was crap. Don't buy this, read the actual book.

    11. This is my second Graphic Novel to read! Before that I only read the first 2 "books" of The Walking Dead but absolutely loved them. Vampire Academy is a series very dear to my heart and therefore I just couldn't resist and had to get the Graphic Novel as well! And I DON'T REGRET IT!Graphic Novels are such fast reads and because I wanted to be on track with my challenge I thought I should finally pick it up! It's a great revision and made me remember the book very good. Ohhh, and I absolutely a [...]

    12. Obviously this is a condensed version of the full-length novel. I enjoyed it for what it was, and was digging on most of characters in picture form, especially Rose and Dimitri because I felt like they were drawn very close to the author's description. Lissa, Mason and Mia all fell short by a mile, but who cares when they got Rose and Dimitri right?Even though I had fun breezing through this fast read, I wouldn't recommend it to anyone who hasn't read the book first. Most of the main book points [...]

    13. Lovely illustrations! But if you haven't already read the novel then I don't think the story would make senseI have read this entire series twice so for me, enjoyable experience :)

    14. I love VA.I had to make that clear.I am not sure about my feelings for the Graphic novel though.The cut out half the lipgloss scene :( .If you have read the books you know what I am talking about.The one where Dimka gives to Roza Victor's necklace and then a lip gloss he bought for her because the one she had was running empty.I love that scene!I made realise how sweet Dimka can be and how much he actually cares for her.The other thing I did not liked is they way the characters looked and especi [...]

    15. This was an awesome read. It is cool to see how the illustrator drew each character and scenario. It was a great recap of the first book. I love Rose and Dimitri. I still have a little bit of annoyance for Lissa. Overall, a funny read that made me remember why I loved the series so much. Great start to the Graphic Novel series.

    16. I really like it. The art work was great and it was in colour but I feel like it was all over the place. If someone did not read the novel Vampire academy first before reading this, they be lost and would not understand what going on. It was a nice refresh to VA world without reading the book but not going pick up the other ones

    17. Even though this is a teen series, I found it to be pretty, ummmult-ish. However, I loved the whole series. I pretty much devoured them!

    18. Didn't like the artwork much (eyes of the characters were way too small), but I guess it's good for the fans to have a comic of beloved series.

    19. SummaryAfter two years on the run, best friends Rose and Lissa are caught and returned to St. Vladimir’s Academy, a private high school for vampires and half-bloods. It’s filled with intrigue, danger—and even romance.Enter their dark, fascinating world through a new series of 144-page full-color graphic novels. The entire first Vampire Academy novel has been adapted for book one by Leigh Dragoon and overseen by Richelle Mead, while the beautiful art of acclaimed British illustrator Emma Vi [...]

    20. Rating: 3.90I know, I know, I should've read the novel first but whatever.So this was basically an adaptation of the vampire academy series and it was beautifully done. So the story is that Rose and Lissa run away from St. Vladimir's academy and they've been on the run for two years that is until they're found and taken back to the academy. There Rose must redeem herself by training to a guardian so that she can protect Lissa in the future. She gets paired up with a fellow guardian, Dimitri Beli [...]

    21. SpoilersDisappointing. The book had far more depth, the VA graphic novel on the other hand lacked in worldbuilding, plot, and character/relationship development.-The illustrations were quite good. I wasn't impressed with how some characters looked though - Lissa looked sickly, Christian looked too young, and Mia looked like a weird doll.-I mostly found the plot shallow and too fast paced. If I hadn't read the book, I would have been confused and wondered what the hell was going on.-The relations [...]

    22. I bought this comic with high expectations with the art and such. And since I'm a major in animation, the art did little for me. The characters were poor in design, and lacked that emotional quality I look for in a person's artwork. Also they had this flat feeling, and some ofahh well you get it, it just sort of pissed me off. I was hoping for something good that would help me feel better about spending 6$ on this. Yeah 6$ not a lot, but it is when you want to moan about how badly drawn the comi [...]

    23. No. Just fucking no. I actually liked the novel, but this is not how you make a graphic novel. The characters look half demented and I'm sure that I wouldn't have been able to percieve what was going on unless I'd read the original book itself. As much as this hurts me, I have to say it; for a much better illustrated and adapted book-turned-graphic-novel, look to Twilight: The Graphic Novel, Vol. 1 and Twilight: The Graphic Novel, Vol. 2. Young Kim actually knows her stuff.

    24. Holy Dimitri babies.This graphic novel was a quick and easy summary of the first book.And Dimitri looked hot in this!So did Christian actually.I loved it and it just reminds me how much I love this series. Perfect for all VA fans.
