Colfer's mythical world, which features a secret underground community populated by fairies, satyrs, trolls, and gnomes who frequently find themselves at odds with the above-ground humans, offers Artemis Fowl, the brilliant teenage criminal mastermind created by author Eoin Colfer, returns for another adventure in The Arctic Incident, Book Two of this exciting new series. Colfer's mythical world, which features a secret underground community populated by fairies, satyrs, trolls, and gnomes who frequently find themselves at odds with the above-ground humans, offers a perfect blend of humor, magic, fantasy, and conflict. In the first book of the series, Artemis battled both the underground inhabitants and Captain Holly Short of the LEPrecon fairy police force. He also lost his beloved father, who is assumed to be dead. Now, after receiving a mysterious video email, Artemis finds himself in need of help from his recent enemies. The video shows a man bearing a striking resemblance to Artemis's father, sitting in the wasteland of arctic Russia. Artemis sets off to rescue the man, but first he must enlist some magical assistance. Down in the underground world, chaos has arisen. An unknown traitor has stolen forbidden weapons and armed a horde of trolls, setting them loose to wreak havoc on the citizens. Clues lead Captain Holly Short straight to Artemis, and she exacts a small bit of revenge by kidnapping him, just as he once kidnapped her. But soon she learns that Artemis isn't behind the chaos, and if she's to have any hope of stopping it, she will need his help. As a result, these onetime adversaries must now join forces -- a mix that proves to be both charming and volatile. Colfer has combined the magical appeal of Rowling's Harry Potter series with a fantasy world reminiscent of Tolkien's. By stirring a few intriguingly conflicted characters and lots of nonstop action into the mix, he's created a winning recipe guaranteed to keep young readers glued to the pages for hours.

And so I was totally excited that there was a graphic novel. ...and then I read it. What's wrong with this? Numbero Uno: is a graphic novel. You are supposed to show the actions. You're not supposed to write it. For instance, if Butler hands Artemis his laptop, you're supposed to show him handing the laptop, not just effing say it! It's a graphic novel, for Chrissake! Now, go read some mangas. Two: Just what is wrong with Artemis' hair? JUST WHAT IS WRONG WITH IT? Scratch that, just what is wrong with his entire body? He's supposed to look more this: and less this: And seriously, just what is wrong with his hair? Three: What's wrong with Butler ? Butler is supposed to look like Vin Diesel, (Or at least, that's what I imagined him to be) not a blond potato with a pea for a head and a steroid neck! Seriously. Butler isn't even blond. His head is shaved bald. <-- Butler does not look like this. Four: Why on Earth is Foaly a blue baboon? He just... he can't look like... like that! *shivers with revulsion* He should look more like this: Also, where the heck is his tin foil cap? Five: Mulch Diggums. WTF dude? You know what? I can't even talk about this right now. Six: Holly. WHUT IS THIS? WTF is up with this? Seven: Dude. What happened to paying attention to details, or even having some common sense? Can anyone explain to me why Holly and Artemis are of the same height? Holly is one meter sans one centimeter tall. That's nearly 3.3 feet. Artemis was thirteen in the book. I seriously doubt he was 3.3 feet too. This is how they were actually: The whole book was just... ugh!

    I read Artemis Fowl well over 10 years ago and picked up a Graphic Novel a few weeks ago, OMG still as good as I remember. I do want the novels again though.

    A good graphic version of the novel. It has been a while since I read them, so seeing them again was a nice reminder.

    This is not my favorit Artimus novel, I liked the graphic novel better because it felt faster paced and somehow more relatable. Meh.

    It was okay. And I'm saying that lightly. First off, the drawings border on atrocious. Butler's head is tiny. I'm not joking, TINY. It's not even that his shoulders are ridiculously proportioned (which they are, anyway); it's that his FREAKING HEAD IS THE SIZE OF A WALNUT. The scene where he runs is ridiculous both to look at and to imagine. Some of the drawings are lovely; and the there are the others. The artist who drew this book doesn't seem to know how to draw fingers; every time I saw someon It was okay. And I'm saying that lightly. First off, the drawings border on atrocious.

The artist who drew this book doesn't seem to know how to draw fingers; every time I saw someone's fingers, I winced. Except for Holly's. For some reason he had absolutely no problem drawing her fingers, and they were lovely. Maybe because she was wearing gloves throughout the whole thing? The amount of narration pissed me off, too. I don't know why, but every time something happened, we get this little bubble from one or the other of the characters explaining what went on. "I land in a snowdrift for the second time today." GIVE ME A BREAK. I HAVE EYES. I CAN SEE THAT HE'S IN A SNOWDRIFT, OKAY? Speaking of proportions, when Holly pulls out the coin, it looks like she could enfold it in her hand. Fast forward a few panels, after she shoots it, and Artemis is holding the coin, which now looks so large that he probably couldn't enfold it in TWO hands--and he's larger than her; it's said so often. WTF? I enjoyed it, but the little blips made it hard for me to enjoy it thoroughly. 2.5 stars.

Holly naturally suspects that Artemis is behind everything. But he is not and Comm. Root asks for Artemis's help in uncovering human who's working with Goblins. And Artemis asks for Roots help in freeing his father. And the adventure begins. Very nice book read the original novels around 3-4 years back and reading the graphic novels now brought back the memories. Do read these books are fun. I have always loved comics, and I hope that I will always love them. Even though I grew up reading local Indian comics like Raj Comics or Diamond Comics or even Manoj Comics, now's the time to catch up on the international and classic comics and Graphic novels. I am on my quest to read as many comics as I can. I Love comics to bit, may comics never leave my side. I loved reading this and love reading more, you should also read what you love and then just Keep on Reading.

    I was not a huge fan of this graphic novel for one reason, if you are going to have the pictures depicting the actions of the story then you do not have to write it out as well. I have read many graphic novels growing up that have done exactly the opposite of what this novel does and enjoyed it much more. I do like the story however, as it reminds me of my childhood when I read these books growing up. Artemis must join forces with the fairies against the goblins if he wants to save his father.

Being one of the only humans who knows about such creatures he must rely on those close to him such as his seem to be bodygaurd and his family and friends back home. HE is a wiz kid who doesn't respect anyone (as we see first hand in the book) as he believes he is too smart to respect others. The illustrations were neat, depicting the story in a sort of "snapshot" action. I would recommend this for 4th or 5th graders as it is a decent read with or without the pictures. I would recommend this for kids interested in the fantasy aspect of reading. It tells the heart warming story of a boy looking for his father, with a bunch of action and fantasy on the side!

    'Artemis Fowl: The Arctic Incident' was A LOT BETTER than the first in the graphic series! First, I believe it captured a lot more of the major action, it captured Artemis more correctly and it was just the CORRECT way to represent the novel series in a comic. In this graphic instalment, Artemis Fowl learns that his lost father, Artemis Fowl Senior, is really alive and held hostage somewhere in Russia, he goes all out to plot his return. This was a really pivotal moment for Artemis in the novel as 'Artemis Fowl: The Arctic Incident' was A LOT BETTER than the first in the graphic series!

This was a really pivotal moment for Artemis in the novel as we learn his more softer, vulnerable side which was really what made me fall in love with him and the series! A pictures captured the moments well enough for the important emotions to shine through, and that is what I really enjoyed. Like the previous instalment, I hated how the characters looked! So freaking scary! Congratulations to Eoin Colfer on publishing the SECOND instalment in the graphic series!

    WOW! I love this set of graphic novels. Okay, so I already loved the Artemis Fowl books, but this is one of the best animated novels with bright, vibrant colours. This is great for young kids to older - little violence, no gore or sexual content. I loved this book and thoroughly enjoyed it.

    This is the second in the series. It seems that Artemis is really not such a bad criminal. He does have a very independent stripe and he exhibits a very arrogant attitude towards the adults he deals with. He is attending school. He is able to see his way to being there because there is not much else he could be doing to find and save his father. Then, he gets the message about his father.

It was a bit unbelievable in what happened and how people acted, but over all it was a wonderful story. You could feel that Artemis was growing up and becoming a better person.

    I LOVE the Artemis fowl series but the graphic novels can’t even compare to the novel. For graphic novel adaptations, I usually overlook the art style but for these ones, the storytelling and how the book was adapted just wasn’t good and done very poorly. Good graphic novels don’t need a narration box in almost every panel because they SHOW what is happening and what the characters are thinking or feeling. The new one which is adapted by Michael Moreci and illustrated by Stephen Gilpin is A LOT I LOVE the Artemis fowl series but the graphic novels can’t even compare to the novel.

    Entertaining and an awesome adaptation of my favorite book in the Artemis Fowl series. Mulch Diggums is really funny (and very well drawn) and there's a bit of Butler and Holly's interaction that I think comes through a bit more here than it did on page (which was quite nice). Artemis, as always, is an insufferable twit, but luckily he's supported by a fantastic cast of characters.

    3.5, I like and dislike the main characters and the art isn’t something I love, but it was an interesting story and I was happy to see the fairies seem to be part of the series, they just became less likable. I’ll still check out the other graphic novels in the series but it’s not making me interested in reading the original books.

    Book One epilogue hinted at finding Artemis' father, and I was really interested in that storyline. This second book did that, but also had other storylines that weren't as intersting to me. It did, however, develop relationships between characters I didn't expect.

    I think this is great for anyone who likes comics, teenage masterminds, and fairies. I had never heard of Artemis Fowl before coming across this book in a thrift store. It is something I would have really enjoyed if I was a teenager. This would be perfect for the right person.

    I loved the book so much! It was kinda Sci-Fi but still very fun, it involved magical creatures like fairies and more. It involves a ton of action so you don't get bored. The book also had a bit of mystery, if you read the book you most likely will enjoy it so, yeah!

    Builds on the original story and actually does some more interesting things with the characters... again, don't love the artwork but the story carries it.

    Probably the wrong age group for these but I don’t remember reading them as a child so wanted to take advantage of the graphic novel series!
