The Exile by Diana Gabaldon and Hoang Nguyen
I had never read a graphic novel before, and now I've read 2 in a row. This one is much more lavishly illustrated than Persepolis, the last book I read. It is based on Outlander by Diana Gabaldon. I really enjoy the series (I have read all 7 books written to date). There is not much new in this graphic novel, but it was fun to read because the artwork is so beautiful. The story is not in as much depth as Outlander, but that is the nature of graphic novels versus regular novels - it wouldn't be possible to get all the detail of a regular novel into a graphic novel. I rate this 3 out of 5.
