This is to be our final transmission
The rebels have defeated our illustrious armies
They have damaged our intention of ugly and defiant malevolence
All that we love and care for will sink
Into the abyss of a new dark age
Made more sinister
And perhaps more protracted
By the light of perverted science and rebellion
The whole root and heavy core
Will perish in starving captivity
You will never win your freedom
You cannot escape... F.E.A.R.

I personnally don't like the GNs either- the characters are drawn hardly even close to what they are suppose to look like, and they cut out (among other parts) the part in book one where Root shoots Cudgeon.

forget you imagination- many of them don't even fit their description!
what about Holly, who should have very short hair, or Butler being bald, or arty having hair that stands in a way that doesn't reject the laws of phisics? don't forget Arty should have blue eyes, Juliet shouldn't look stupid, centaurs have a human torso, so Foaly's face shouldn't look like a donkey's, not to mention all the facial hair, Angeline looks japanies for some reason, the troll is suppose to be the size of an elephant, and a bunch of other small differences.

Loads of people don't like the graphic novel much, but at least we have one... It tells the story OK-ish, even if it failed on the characters.
But it left out the Lollipops thing! Noooo! :(
