I finally got around to reading these graphic novels! Yay!
Wires and Nerve, Volume 1 by Marissa Meyer and Doug Holgate
It’s been a while since I read The Lunar Chronicles. But it was kind of easy to jump back into their world. What caused me a bit of confusion was the fact that this graphic novel takes place before the final(?) story in Stars Above.
Iko has taken it upon herself to hunt down and take into custody the rogue wolf-hybrid soldiers that have stayed on Earth. Along the way, we come across our favorite Rampion crew, whose members are scattered around the world.
It was an easy read. I actually got through it fairly quickly. My one pet peeve is how it abruptly ended. This comic primarily set up the events for the next book. So not a lot really happens before the “to be continued” appears.
Gone Rogue (Wires and Nerve, Volume 2) by Marissa Meyer and Stephen Gilpin
Cinder’s life is threatened, Wolf continues to struggle with himself and Kinney’s feelings towards Iko begin to change.
Not my favorite story overall. Yes, all of the crew is back together. But since I already read Stars Above, it seemed a bit unnecessary since I already knew what was going to happen. It was just filler. I did enjoy that it was primarily told from Iko’s POV.
My advice: read the graphic novels before the short stories in Stars Above.
