5.0 von 5 Sternen Not groundbreaking, but still solid and entertaining 3. Dezember 2012
Von GraphicNovelReporter.com - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
For months now, the industry has been buzzing about the epic graphic novel Anomaly. Epic? It's enormous. 368 pages enormous, not to mention how massively oversized it is (opened up, it has more than a 32-inch wingspan; not the kind of book that's easy to read on a crowded subway).

What Anomaly lacks in convenience it makes up for in storytelling and art. Co-creator Brian Haberlin has his hands in both pieces, writing the story along with cocreator Skip Brittenham and supplying art along with Beirrod Van Dyke. All told, it was a project that took the creative team years to assemble...and, interestingly enough, the creative work is still going on, even after publication. This being a fully realized 21st-century graphic novel, Anomaly is not just a book, but an interactive experience (although it reads just fine as a standalone book). Readers are invited to enhance their experiences with Ultimate Augmented Reality, an app that can be downloaded for free. Pages in the book that are "live" can then be scanned by the reader's mobile device, which makes objects on the page not only 3D, but also interactive...meaning readers can play along and take on some pretty cool monsters and machines on the pages.

What makes Anomaly more fun than all of this suggests, however, is that it's not just all bells and whistles (the bells and whistles are very cool, though). The sci-fi story focuses on a dying world overrun with corporate greed, as all nations and corporations have been merged into one behemoth known as The Conglomerate. Humans vie for scarce resources.

Our protagonist, Jon, is a former Enforcer for The Conglomerate and has now been disgraced. To redeem himself, he undertakes a seemingly simple mission of safeguarding a Conglomerate executive's daughter as they sail off to make first contact with a world that may be inhabitable (and may offer more resources to plume). This being a sci-fi novel, you can imagine that things go wrong. When they arrive on the planet, the group is faced with remarkable challenges from the planet's inhabitants and must battle for survival.

While the story is not groundbreaking, it is solid and entertaining. The art is exactly as you'd expect: static in that computer-generated way, but with very cool depth and color. But when it comes alive through the app, it's a nice experience.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Dialogue Shatner would be embarrassed to utter. 1. Dezember 2012
Von James Mayo Mccuan - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
I'm editing my review so that it flows better. I had originally written it in two parts.

1) Horrible dialogue throughout most of the book. It reminded me of comic books from the 1970s and 80s. People say things to each other that, if you actually say them out loud, you would realize that nobody with any sense would say something in those words without sounding like a cheesy, melodramatic caricature. The art got about 90% of the creative effort, and the writing was thrown the remaining 10%.

2) Almost zero character development throughout. I was never emotionally invested in anybody within the story, and couldn't believe how the characters own relationships developed for no reason. The main female character hates the main male character through the first 150 pages, and then suddenly kisses him and says he's grown on her. I have no idea why since they didn't share a single "Get to know each other" moment. Their only real interaction is her watching him during a very cheesy sword fight. I guess that's all it took to make her hatred turn to adoration.

3) The artwork is the most enjoyable aspect of the book, but it has to carry a dead story across it's back through 30 miles of rough road.

4) The story itself seemed like it was completely borrowed from The Lord of the Rings, with a few sci-fi tidbits tacked on. A group of different species of humanoids are convinced to band together to battle the hordes of an evil wizard type before he conquers all of their lands. It wasn't very imaginative, groundbreaking, original etc...

The evil, mega-corporation wanting to control everything, and not caring who or what gets hurt in the process aspect isn't anything new either. There's ALWAYS an evil, mega-something wanting to control everything in most stories of this type.

5) The background information concerning the characters, their world, and anything else that might have been of value to know is in the back of the book, after the graphic novel portion is concluded. I would have liked to have known that ahead of time, seeing as how I have the habit of starting a book at the front. By the time I got to that portion, I had lost any interest I may have had in reading it.

6) Several people have used the word "Epic" to describe this book. I would simply say it has many pages. It reads like a much smaller book though. Some pages have a tiny word count. I read the entire thing in 2 sittings, neither of which were very lengthy. If I typed all of the graphic novel portion words out in a Word document, I'm doubting it would be more than 25 pages of type. I'm not going to test it, but it can't be very much compared to the actual size of the book.

I notice the representive of a graphic novel review entity stated, "Not groundbreaking...", and still gave a 5 star review. I would think 5 stars would be reserved for something that actually is groundbreaking.... but I guess that's why I'm not getting paid for reviews.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The Collector's Edition is Worth Every Penny!!!!!! 22. Dezember 2012
Von Vince C - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
I originally wrote my review below for the regular Anomaly Graphic Novel, but I actually own the Collector's Edition, and the additional 16 prints of all the main characters plus the limited edition numbered book and the special packaging makes this a definite value considering it's not that much more than the original novel, but you get a limited edition signed by the creators of a Book that will for sure become a collector's item in a few years given how ground breaking Anomaly is!!!! As a huge fan of Comic Books and Graphic Novels and owning more than 2000 of them where some are worth a considerable amount of money, I know how valuable special edition books can be. They easily demand more money over the years and become much more sought after because they are more rare than the rest of the copies. A book as beautiful and inspiring as this one is for sure going to grow in value. Plus as a fan I LOVE having all the extras that are only found in this edition.
Here's my original review from the regular Anomaly novel which still is a fair assessment of both novels, just the collector's edition is a bit more special!!!
My Review:
This is one of the most MIND BLOWING books I've ever seen. There are so many amazing things to experience with this book. First, The sheer size of it is UNBELIEVABLE!!!! Second, the art work is insane, you could literally take pages from it and frame them and hang them on your wall that's how huge and gorgeous they are! The fold out pages are So Beautiful it takes your breath away. Third, the story is brilliant. With so many interesting and diverse characters, I LOVE the themes and ideas that are explored in the book as well. They are definitely traditional themes for fantasy and Scifi, but the way they are developed on such a grand scale make them feel new and original. Last but definitely not least, the Augmented Reality app and the Interactive stand alone app that plays like a movie which complements the book adds Sooooo much detail and mind blowing visuals that you will be amazed. When I started to dig in to Anomaly I kept feeling like I was staring at the future of books but in today's world. I know that there are plans to keep adding new material to Anomaly and I've read some reviews where the creators have said that this is just the first installment in a trilogy, and I CANNOT wait for more!!!! This is truly one of the most impressive books I've ever seen....or I should say I've ever EXPERIENCED!!! The creators of Anomaly have really outdone themselves there is nothing out there that compares or even comes close to what they have accomplished!!!

2.0 von 5 Sternen This proves that story matters most...which is where this fails 10. Dezember 2012
Von Tembrock - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
Story: derivative and unoriginal. It borrows from John Carter (high jumping human), Andromeda Strain (plastic eating virus), Lord Of The Rings (epic battles that look strangely similar to tableaus of Orcs and Humans/Elves lined up in Return Of The King. More importantly, I never care about anyone or what they are there to do.

Dialogue: painful at times. The twist at the end has one of the most painful lines where the character says the surprise rather than a surprising action frame showing you the surprise then explaining it after the bomb is dropped.

Art: Average to above average on landscapes and alien figures. The human figures are the weakest with some detail dropped. One frame of hero made it look like he had vampire teeth (or maybe piranha teeth, uniformly pointy). If the story was better I would forgive it more.

Supplementary info at end of book: extraneous because I don't care about the people or the world.

To give you an example to see where my tastes lie, I thought Frank Miller's Dark Knight had good story. The Walking Dead comics, great story.

I applaud the effort here but wow, this really disappointed me. I think taking more chances with the characters and plot would have helped. Get people to like characters then kill them off in tragic moments, maybe moments of self sacrifice, something to get you to feel something. Heighten the plot and deepen the story.

Augmented Reality: the app on the iPhone would have been cooler if I was more invested in story. Also, the info page should be able to stay up to read without having to hold up the smartphone over the trigger image. You should be able to put down the book or move the camera to read some of those really long passages.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Mindblowing Technology! Gorgeous Illustrations 22. Dezember 2012
Von LuLu - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
I bought this book for my son who is a graphic novel enthusiast. I had never been that interested in the world of graphic novels, until I saw a presentation of this incredible book. I sat there with my mouth hanging open as the book became an audio presentation with amazing "augmented reality" pop-ups with stirring vocal acting. But even without all this crazy futuristic technology, the book is a fantastic story with even more beautiful artwork. And it's HUGE! A gorgeous coffee table book too! I can't wait for him to open his gift so we can share it together.
