“Meet a young man named Odd . . . who helps the dead get even."

From the infinite imagination of #1 New York Times bestselling author Dean Koontz comes the suspenseful graphic-novel debut of a natural-born hero with a supernatural twist.

Odd Thomas is a regular nineteen-year-old with an unusual gift: the ability to see the lingering spirits of the dead. To Odd, it’s not such a big deal. And most folks in sleepy Pico Mundo, California, are much more interested in the irresistible pancakes Odd whips up at the local diner. Still, communing with the dead can be useful. Because while some spirits only want a little company . . . others want justice.

When the sad specter of a very frightened boy finds its way to him, Odd vows to root out the evil suddenly infecting the sunny streets of Pico Mundo. But even with his exceptional ability–plus the local police and his pistol-packing girlfriend, Stormy, backing him–is Odd any match for a faceless stalker who’s always a step ahead . . . and determined to kill again?

I don't read a lot of graphic novels. I found this one to be lacking in story details.

I love the Odd Thomas series. When I ordered the book it somehow escaped my attention that it was a graphic novel. It was my first, but certainly not my last. I truly enjoyed this and look forward to his other one.

Odd is his name and he sees dead people. Along with his gun toting girlfriend and the police he finds the bad guys and brings them to justice. The format took a few pages for me to get used to and then it was clear sailing. I'll probably read more graphic novels as a result.
