Rated 4 out of 5 by from New way to enjoy I enjoyed the books when I was a teen and now see my younger siblings enjoying the graphic novel version, so it's nice to see how the different formats can still be enjoyed by the target audience

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Interesting The manga version of the books look amazing. When I was reading the series it seemed really off (while the depiction of mad scientists trope is an interesting topic it is fairly black and white and feels cliche) but at least the manga series depicts it in an interesting way. #plumreview

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Manga! Wow! This was the first manga I have ever read and I must say, I am a fan! I loved it! It was amazing to be able to actually see the characters come to life and Narae Lee did a great job. I am soooo excited to read the second book and see Max and the flocks adventures unfold in a suspensful and amazingly drawn manga!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ya!!!! Manga for the Maximum Ride Novels!! I love these books, and now its even better to see Max and her flock in manga! The drawings were awesome and the characters looked just how I pictured them.....except for Fang..he has a ponytail?!:) I loved reading this book, seeing the flock in action was so cool. Though, the series had so many tiny details that made the books that much better, and they were left out, but over all i loved this book!! I can't wait to read the rest of the manga books.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Mannnggaaaaa The drawings were great and some were just adorable. It was nice to see the original Maximum Ride in pictures. Though, I didn't like how they took out some parts of the book. Like how the flock would always tap fists before they went to bed. They took that out. And also the cabin that they hid in for a night. They changed a couple things too, which made me a little sad. Overall, the manga book wasn't bad.
