My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I saw the trailer for the show, which will be on TNT this summer, while at the movies last weekend and I became interested almost immediately (Link to the trailer: So naturally, when I saw that NetGalley had the graphic novel available to review I had to read it. Overall, I liked the graphic novel and it’s actually upped my interest in the show. They did a good job of leaving the reader wanting more. We still don't know why the children were harnessed, or being kidnapped for that matter, but I think that'll be an interesting story within itself. The pacing was good, as were the characters.
