Praise for The Golden Compass Graphic Novel, vol. 2:
-Dreamy watercolors organized into neatly ordered panels lend themselves well to the fantastical setting, creating a sense of sweeping cinematic scope. Pullman's original magnum opus is heady and dense, and it may prove challenging for some; this adaptation, with its visual accessibility, can help those struggling with the novel's complexity achieve an understanding without watering down the intricacies.---Kirkus Reviews

Praise for The Golden Compass Graphic Novel, vol. 1:
-The story's signature fantasies--the daemons, the armored mercenary polar bears, and the alethiometer--are realized with compelling force (and, in the case of the daemons, humor). This] retelling will bring Pullman's work new fans and give previous readers new pleasure.- --Publishers Weekly, Starred
-Whether this is a reader's first experience with the tale or they are already familiar with the story, they should be delighted by this rendition.- --School Library Journal
-The small and detailed but very clear panels are full of expressive faces, discernible action, and moody shadowing. Readers familiar with Pullman's novel will appreciate this artistic adaptation, as will readers who simply prefer graphic novels to prose.- --Booklist
