The Doppleganger Chronicles: The Secret of Indigo Moon

Sadly, this graphic novel turned out to be like most of it's compatriots.  The comic book genre is filled with weak storys, bad characters, and even worse "humor."  This book, as I already implied, was of such quality.

The main characters (which I suppose would be two girls named Sadie and Saskia and a boy named Erik Morrisey) were mainly obnoxious (especially the females).   Speaking on the story part I would have to say, that it was just stupid.  "Three kids run away from their school, to track down people and criminals thinking that their head mistress was a criminal herself.  They get kidnapped multiple times, and put on unrealistic inventions, that will take them (or in one case) hurl them to their death.  Then, of course, they somehow, manage to get off the object of torture and escape their captors."

This is not a book you will want to waste your money on (even if you usually do spend your money on juvenile graphic novels), but of course I didn't know that.  Fortunately, I didn't spend any money on the book, but obtained it as a free review copy from Tyndale.com, where you can go to sign up to get free products to review.  (Don't worry, everything else I've gotten from them I enjoyed much more, such as Odyssey #52 and a Jerry B. Jenkins book)

Anyway, great art (wish they had the art the whole way through.  That would have boosted my rating a bit), stupid story, undesirable characters, and such nonsense.  1/5 star (assuming that "1" is the lowest rating I can give)

Just by the looks of the cover art I'd say I have to agree with you. Doesn't look like something I would want to read.

Yep. :)
