Praise for The Golden Compass Graphic Novel:

"The story's signature fantasies--the d mons, the armored mercenary polar bears, and the alethiometer--are realized with compelling force. This] retelling will bring Pullman's work new fans and give previous readers new pleasure." --Publishers Weekly, starred review

"Belongs in all libraries that include Pullman's works." --School Library Journal

"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
