    I'm enjoying these graphic novels and really coming to like the illustrations. From what I've read under the acknowledgements, the artists are sisters who live seas apart yet collaborate seamlessly which to me is a pretty amazing feat. The artists captured facial expressions really well in this volume. At first, I couldn't quite understand the significance of the words in bold because it seemed like unnecessary emphasis.

However, as the story went on, the words in bold fit in with the character dialogue. Also having only done basic french in secondary school, I couldn't understand what Alex was saying in some scenes; there really ought to be some sort of translation somewhere. Overall a good adaptation. Looking forward to picking more of these in the future.

    Eagle Strike is the graphic novel adaptation of the fourth book in Anthony Horowitz’s incredibly popular Alex Rider series. Antony Johnston’s script has this version of Eagle Strike beginning with a flashback to some danger and intrigue in the Amazon fifteen years ago before flashing forward in time to the present day and the south of France, where intrepid teenager and reluctant spy Alex Rider is holidaying with his possibly/maybe/sometime girlfriend Sabina Pleasure and her family. While Alex ma Eagle Strike is the graphic novel adaptation of the fourth book in Anthony Horowitz’s incredibly popular Alex Rider series. Antony Johnston’s script has this version of Eagle Strike beginning with a flashback to some danger and intrigue in the Amazon fifteen years ago before flashing forward in time to the present day and the south of France, where intrepid teenager and reluctant spy Alex Rider is holidaying with his possibly/maybe/sometime girlfriend Sabina Pleasure and her family. While Alex may well be determined never to work for MI6 again, he has a natural gift for espionage and is soon ditching sunbathing in favour of trailing assassin though not complete bad guy Yassen Gregorovich [previously encountered in Stormbreaker, the first book in the series]. Alex knows that Gregorovich is up to something but doesn’t figure out what in time to prevent an explosion at the Pleasure’s holiday home. Feeling guilty that he couldn’t do anything to prevent the injuries suffered by Sabina’s father during the explosion, Alex breaks the vow he made to himself and plunges back into the dangerous world of international intrigue and double-cross. He sets out to track down Gregorovich and his paymasters whatever the cost and before long uncovers a terrible secret, a secret that leaves him with only 90 minutes to save the world. Eagle Strike is another excellent instalment in the Alex Rider series. Alex is a believable and appealing hero and, while the situations he finds himself in are extraordinary and sometimes rather outlandish, he always manages to battle through. He’s still only 14 but Alex is maturing fast and is willing and capable to stand up to threats that MI6 shy away from. The return of Yassen Gregorovich was well done, with some lingering questions from Stormbreaker being answered and some new mysteries begun. In addition to Gregorovitch, there were a good number of thugs and henchmen for Alex to fight, with Damian Cray being a menacing if loopy “big bad”. The machinations of Cray probably place Alex, as well as the world, in the greatest danger yet faced in the series. Antony Johnson has done a great job of adapting the original Eagle Strike storyline and crafting it into a script that works well for the graphic novel format. There are so many action sequences involved in the story as well as dramatic fight scenes – Alex fights a bull and a giant snake as well as all manner of human nasties – that the book absolutely whizzes by. The dialogue is equally well-handled, with the exposition and flashbacks being incorporated into the text in such a way that the flow of the story is not disrupted. He does a good job of highlighting the vulnerability of Alex Rider as well as his steely determination and ability to fight the good fight. Some of the supporting characters have perhaps been a little sidelined in the adaptation in order to streamline the story and emphasise the action, but this doesn’t prevent Eagle Strike from being a great graphic novel. The art from Yuzuru Takasaki [coloured and rendered by Kanako Damerum] is a great accompaniment to Johnson’s script and really brings the plot to life. The style is very fresh and clear, with the colouring being quite understated and the backgrounds uncluttered. The characters are generally drawn in a way that is in-keeping with their descriptions in the original book, although the faces and hairstyles do have a distinctly manga-like aesthetic that might not appeal to all. This new edition of Eagle Strike [as well as the reprints of the other graphic novels in the series] is a larger format to the original edition and this really helps to highlight the quality of the artwork and allow the detail to shine through. Eagle Strike is a tremendously entertaining spy caper and the graphic novel should please Alex Rider fans both young and old.

    I like that this exciting adventure series by Anthony Horowitz is finding a new life in a graphic novel format. Teenage spy prodigy Alex is on vacation in France with a friend/girlfriend when he sees a shady figure from his past. Things get rough pretty quickly as bombs explode, and Alex is forced to fight a bull and play a virtual reality game invented by a mad man. The James Bond-like spy gadgets are fun. I used to explain in reference interviews that Alex Rider is like a teen aged James Bond, I like that this exciting adventure series by Anthony Horowitz is finding a new life in a graphic novel format.

I used to explain in reference interviews that Alex Rider is like a teen aged James Bond, with the same high adrenaline escapades, but without the romance. In the original series it is believable that this adolescent is crucial to high level international espionage. In this adaptation he just keeps happening on bad guys. There is a lack of substance to his character and to any of the supporting characters. The dialogue is trite and unbelievable. Also, there is a giant snake with eyelashes. This might work as a hi/lo reader for teens. It is possible that this could introduce 10-12 yr olds to the fiction series.

    I was never going to like this book, so if you're a fan of the Alex Rider series good for you feel free to disregard this review. It was what it was, Alex Rider boy spy, is trying to be on vacation from his spy life with his teen girl friend and her family at a french villa- like you do. When he sees an evil assassin/spy arrives on a yacht standing on the, standing at the very front of the yacht like well trained spies surely do. and the adventure takes of from there.

    Action packed story with vivid supporting graphics make this a strong candidate for struggling/reluctant readers. Although it is not the first in the series, there was enough information given to easily follow the story line. May also be an inducement for readers who enjoy it to pick up the text version next. Alex is on vacation when an unexpected attack drives him to track down the dangerous hit man without support from the MI-6.

    New to the graphic novel genre: got this for my kids and decided to try it out. A quick introduction to this series (though this is #4) of novels, I'm glad the ending is not too explicit or graphic, ironically.

    I decided to read this book because we had to read a graphic novel. This book fits into the category a graphic novel. “You're trying to tell me that everything you've done is for a good cause. You think that all this killing is worth it because of the results. I'm not sure I agree. Lots of people work for charity; lots of people want to change the world. But they don't have to behave like you.” this is the quote i found was the most interesting, this is because it applies to all military leaders w I decided to read this book because we had to read a graphic novel.

Something new i learned from this book is that not every great leader is as great as they appear... A character i found interesting was Damian cray, this is because he is just like countless other tyrants, he thinks that he can create world peace by committing mass murder. I gave this book 3/5 stars because although the book was good, there were a lot of times when the characters just droned on.

Notes on content: A few mild to moderate swear words scattered through the book. No sexual content beyond one hint of a kiss. Violence ranges from fist fights and scrapes in rough landings to several people dead. One is shot and is quite bloody. A few others are shot and not as bloody. Another goes through a jet engine and is portrayed with red spray. A couple people are killed or severely injured "off page" in explosions (only fire/smoke is shown).

    I like the graphic novels because of the illustrations and the plot. But since this is the fourth novel I've read, I can't help but notice how the villains are always verryyy similar. Of course, this is not the fault of the graphic novel as this is just an adaptation but since I haven't actually read Eagle Strike, as in not the graphic novel, I'll talk about it here. Basically, the villains always get Alex caught and then they would rattle on their plans (typically fictional villain) and say stuf I like the graphic novels because of the illustrations and the plot.

    I am reading these as part of a read-with-kids program and I hit on this as a way to get a 9 year old interested. And then I got hooked. I read it before we ever started it together; I can see the proper novels have a future in my summer....

    While a bit different than the actual book, the graphic novel was really good. I loved the faces, especially that of Damien Cray. Hilarious. The drawings are of high-quality, and bring the message through well. A great read for anyone who read the book series.
