Which Dresden graphic novel is your favorite? I m going to order one and can't decide which one. I have Ghoul Goblin and Storm Front.

I've only read the two original stories (not the adaptations). I enjoyed Ghoul/Goblin, but thought the story was a little shaky. Welcome to the Jungle is solid, though.
"Here is light. You will say that it is not a living entity, but you miss the point that it is more, not less. Without occupying space, it fills the universe. It nourishes everything, yet itself feeds upon destruction. We claim to control it, but does it not perhaps cultivate us as a source of food? May it not be that all wood grows so that it can be set ablaze, and that men and women are born to kindle fires?"

There are two types... the original stories and the adaptations from the books.

I have found the adaptations fine. They're basically straightforward lifts from the books with decent to great art.

Of the original works, i really enjoyed WELCOME TO THE JUNGLE. Fun original story, mostly great art. Very Dresden.

GOBLIN/GHOUL was disappointing and i wish i hadn't spent hardcover dollars on it. The backpage notes show that there was a clever story in there that ended up mauled into a flat, uninteresting by the numbers story that barely hits Butcher's early days STORMFRONT level of storytelling, nevermind where he is now in the books. As a softcover or second hand, i would have been content to add it to my collection, i suppose, but still not impressed.

Welcome to the Jungle it is. :) Ghoul Goblin was a birthday gift to me so I didn't feel bad about spending money on it.

Picked up Welcome to the Jungle and Side Jobs. I may have gone a little over board ad Barnes and Noble today. :)
