Kids/teen graphic novel; sci-fi/alien adventure. Lovely artwork, fantastic story--I just wish it could've been executed more smoothly. When the characters have to explain the plot to each other in their dialogue, the whole story loses its polish. Still, on the whole, a fast-paced read that kids should enjoy. ( )

My nephew suggested this to me. It's a fun read, with some depth as well as plenty of action. You can imagine which appealed to each of us :) ( )

I randomly selected this book from the shelves of my local library's graphic novel section. It just looked like it might be a fun read. I almost did not read it because I got so many graphic novels out at once that I nearly returned it because I did not think I would get around to it, but I decided to read it quickly before heading out to the library. I am sure glad that I gave it that opportunity because this truly is a unique book that deserves to be read.

The story revolves primarily around a family that goes on a boating trip and what happens after the sail off on that trip. The story itself takes many twists and turns. You are never sure what exactly is occurring because it leaps between two time periods. The ending makes logical sense and messes with your sense of reality and shows how assumptions can make you wrong. I found the writing and dialogue to be entertaining and TenNapel was able to give each of the family members a unique voice that made them stand out on their own. He also provided enough comic relief in the story to offset any moments that may have been a bit "overwhelming" for a younger audience. This mixture is what kept me reading and is why I ultimately have to give this particular book five stars. When you keep a mixture to the point both an adult and a child can enjoy it you deserve accolades.

The artwork is a little "saturday morning cartoon" in my opinion, but that does not distract from the overall message of the story. In a sense the art style while cartoony adds to what I was mentioning earlier about TenNapel being able to mix in adult and child together. The artwork can really draw in a child, while being stylized enough for a mature audience as well. This was a finely crafted and well-drawn story that I would recommend to people that want to have their sense of perception and assumptions messed with. You will be at the end of this book going "Yes I shouldn't have just assumed" and you will be happy that you read the book. ( )

Typically magical TenNapel tale of a family who crashes on a mysterious island full of monsters, and how it connects to a story of giants and monsters. Good, but not my favorite work of his by a long shot. ( )

The line between entertainment for children and adults is blurry. Parents read Harry Potter and other young adult fiction, and most animated films are entertaining for entire families. So I approached Bad Island, a book that was recommended by a 20 something salesman at The Lonely Planet for my 8 year old son, with high expectations. I was not disappointed. Bad Island is a graphic novel that toggles between two stories, both about the importance of family (one human and one alien). Though they have their disagreements and infighting, they remain loyal and loving to one another and go to great lengths to protect each other against malevolent forces. The illustrations are as powerful as the storyline and the morals. Definitely glad my son read this powerful story about a family sticking together against great odds. ( )
