“If there’s a funnier writer out there, step forward.”

The always outrageous Christopher Moore—New York Times bestselling author of Bite Me, Lamb, You Suck, The Stupidest Angel, and a host of other prime cuts of literary hilarity—joins forces with award-winning screenwriter and director Ian Corson to bring you The Griff. An absurdly entertaining graphic novel about alien invasion—in the grand tradition of Cowboys and Aliens, but considerably more ridiculous—The Griff is vintage Chris Moore…with pictures! Get ready for thrills, chills, and a chain-smoking professional squirrel, in this high-octane tale of the infestation of Earth by extraterrestrial interlopers and the motley crew of humans who save the world…sort of.

Christopher Moore is the author of fourteen previous novels, includingLamb,The Stupidest Angel,Fool,Sacré Bleu,A Dirty Job, andThe Serpent of Venice. He lives in San Francisco, California.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Huge Fan of Author, Deeply Disappointed Reason for Reading: I read every new book by the author and was quite excited about his first foray into the graphic novel. The publisher's description of this book pretty much tells the whole story and makes it sound a lot more fun than it really is. Moore is well-known for his eccentric characters and I just didn't have any fun with those in this graphic novel. I found the story quite predictable, the usual run-of-the-mill, alien invasion story. There weren't any surprises and it just fell really flat for me. Moore is a writer and he just didn't get to use his craft with this medium. Yeah, there are a few moments when his witty, wry sense of humour show up in a text bubble here and there but otherwise the story was hard to keep track of since there wasn't much of it and it jumped back and forth between characters that just didn't make the cut for me. A big disappointment. Moore had better stick to his natural medium, the novel, and perhaps let his already successfully published novels be adapted into graphic novels instead.

Editorial Reviews

?A page-turner?. Your ?Lear? can be rusty or completely unread to appreciate this new perspective on the Shakespearean tragedy. That is if you enjoy a whole lot of silly behind the scenes of your tragedies.? (Valdosta Times (Georgia) on FOOL)
