Description: Books vs Comic books
haylinfan - February 1, 2009 12:00 PM (GMT)
i wonder what differences there are in the books and the comic books?? i've read both and there seems to be only one: i get to understand things better in the books than the comics...(come to think of it they're more detailed than the comics!!)

by the show- Anna and Chris are Irma's relatives
by the comics- both are steprelatives
by the books (#25)- Anna is stepmother, and Chris is full brother
#1- in the comics Irma is requested about Charles the great
in the show- about the dark ages

They write more things in the books, like describing the place :lol:

hmm.. that's one thing...

There's also a sense of their thoughts being described, plus one or two scenes added in saga 1 that were not there in the comic.

in the book they say more things but I like the comic more :D

I likewise prefer the comics, because they're much faster to read.

I prefer the comics because the pictures can show more depth than a book typing, the book show us more their minds, but the comics show us better their environments

i like how the books describe alot of the things in the story and how we get to hear the charcters thoughts. but i perfer the comics, they are more colourful and show exactly what the things described in the books look like.

that's just what i was thinking... there are also short conversations in the books that are not in the comics...

That's because Elizabeth Lenhard had to fill in 128 pages of text, while the comic just needs 60 pages.

besides books are always detailed so that we could really imagine what the author is saying.. but in comics, e could clearly see..
brightstar650 - May 14, 2009 01:00 PM (GMT)
comics are better because i get bored of reading unimportant things or like too much writing!
Witchlover - May 15, 2009 02:57 AM (GMT)
I don't know which I prefer...I have them all right at my fingertips so I like to read them both at the same time, but seeing as how the books end at 26... ^_^
haylinfan - May 15, 2009 03:08 AM (GMT)
question though.. does anyone have scans of the graphic novels?? i'd love to read them...
MoonCloud217 - May 15, 2009 08:58 AM (GMT)
they are basically the same as the comics... but not as good :P since they have censorship.
haylinfan - May 16, 2009 01:46 AM (GMT)
oh.. those.. :lol: i've never bothered reading them because i've already read the comic versions...(my friend sure did some serious collecting back then!!)

the graphic novels are the same, just with a slightly different cover.
you can see the covers for the graphic novels here:http://www.hyperionbooksforchildren.com/po...splay.asp?id=20

My sister has those up to #20, they're what I read before I started on the comic here. The comic inserts at the beginning and end are taken directly from the comic books though, nothing's different.

I started reading the book where they rescue Taranee first, and because I was still young, I didn't understand much, and that first impression really stuck to me.... now reading it, it's a lot easier, but it's too late, the comics have won my vote. :P

In the books you get a better description and you can make the story up in your mind. In the comics you can see what the writers thought it would look like.

This topic is about the comic books that were released in the US, not the book that were released in some countries on Europe ;) . The comic books follow the story of the actual comic (censored, though), with some comic pages inserted.
... Righ? Correct me if I'm wrong!

I'm not sure if you're right or wrong, but still, if the story is the same you can make it realistic in your head while reading the books, even though there are some comic inserts.

The chapter books had some comic pages at the beginning and ending, though volume 26 had different comic pages to end it. It's been a while since I've even looked at mine, but if I recall correctly some of those comic pages were likely edited for censorship as well. (I swear the U.S.A. is the most prudish country.)
But both have their advantages. The comics can help you with how something is to look, as I know from my own experience writing that it can sometimes be difficult to properly articulate with words how someone or something looks (it's that "a picture's worth a thousand words" thing). But in writing you can add details of other senses that even a comic can have difficulty describing; taste, touch, smell. Then there's how characters are feeling, but this can also be done in comics in a fashion.

Maybe someone could scan the comic books, I would love to read them (even of they're censored)!
SpellBinder - July 11, 2011 10:01 PM (GMT)
The American ones I just mentioned? Outside of censorship (IIRC someone's posted a link to some images), and differences in translation results, they're pretty much the same as the comics MC & company have available through here.
