    1. I didn t realize when I first started searching for this that it was a graphic novel I ve got nothing against them, but it s not a medium I normally read Still, I was excited to see this part of the Ender s Game story, so I was only slightly disappointed.As it turns out, Card gets credit for the plot, but he turned to someone else for the scripting I think it suffers just a little from that This isn t to say that the writing of Aaron Johnston isn t good, it s just not really in Orson Scott Card [...]

    2. It was really fun It was a very solid story with several storylines and vivid characterizations I had an easier time following the graphic novel format than I usually do too, it didn t skip around as much as some that I ve read or just skip lines all together if you aren t normally a graphic novel fan you shouldn t let the format stop you from reading the book I thought the art was great and set the rough, warlike tone really well Although Mazer being so hot was a shock after so many years of re [...]

    3. I m a fan of comics and of the Ender s Game books series, but I truly feel these never should have been translated into comics The characters here are great, but what I like about the Ender books is the political much of which is dulled down here and the way he can create mental imagery without much description Perhaps if the art were better, this would have been enjoyable I would have liked to see it in book rather than comicbook format.

    4. Many of the novels and short stories in Orson Scott Card s Ender series have been adapted into comic book form by Marvel, but this collection represents a brand new story in the series written as a comic Card and Aaron Johnston co wrote the story Johnston wrote the script They have announced plans to expand on the story in a trilogy of novels, the first of which Earth Unaware was published last month The artwork by Giancarlo Caracuzzo is adequate The panels support the text and were usually easy [...]

    5. I have not read a ton of graphic novels so I am not a great judge of their quality I know these came before the Formic novels but I am glad I read the novels first since the storyline had so much detail It was very interesting to see how many of the scenes characters were depicted but it was very different in many ways than what I imagined That it not a criticism in any way, each reader makes the story their own in some way.

    6. I dug this, and enjoyed the art and coloring No surprising bad language, a nice extension to the Ender story It just didn t pop I m sorry that the comment is so subjective, but it was just missing something intangible Tangible wise I can say that I found the illustration of the Formics a little disappointing I m not sure if it was or was not intentional, but they just didn t strike fear in my heart I enjoyed how it hopped around from place to place I loved the characters to whom we were introduc [...]

    7. For as well crafted as Earth Unaware was, this book did not seem as good It has dramatic character interfaces, intrigue, and certainly action It seemed rushed and quick sometimes, and then dragged out in other places Mazer gets an unlikely romance, Viko pretty much gets adopted, Len starts his paternal overthrow plan The end came abruptly I thought, as if to set the next book started in the heat of the action It will leave some readers frustrated You may want to hold off on buying this one un [...]

    8. Wasn t this two novels originally It doesn t feel like it while the book is pretty dense, there doesn t seem like it was two novels worth either This is a pretty faithful, albeit cut down, adaptation of the novels, trimming off all the extraneous character development and focusing entirely on plot And that s kind of the problem if you ve read the novels, there s nothing here that s new or expanded upon besides the art, which is acceptable but nothing to make you pick up the book on its own And t [...]

    9. I was totally entertained with this For someone who has micro managed the film rights of the Ender world to the point where it will probably never get made while he s alive, I was uber surprised to learn that Orson Scott Card would allow his money machine to do something in an exclusive graphic novel format This is a prequel to the Ender series and introduces the reader to the Formic war and the origin story of Mazer Rackham To my knowledge, Card has no plans for a novel version of this story Gr [...]

    10. It s good to finally get a prequel to Ender s Game the writing and style is very much like that book.Keep in mind, though, that it will take you a couple of hours at most to burn through this graphic novel Although if you consider that it s a collection of the first 7 issues in the comic series, it s like paying a little over 2 per book, which I guess is not a bad deal.All in all, I m not sure if I will purchase the next book s in the series I expected this book to be a self standing prequel, so [...]

    11. Enjoyable addition to the Ender saga by Orson Scott Card It s been a while since I last read Ender s Game, so I did not spot the plot discrepencies that others have pointed out What did bother me was how matter of factly the characters in this book dealt with First Contact I think there should have been a bit debate even among the adventurous, though stoic, miners On the up side, the story was exciting and the art was effective.

    12. This was good but not great I don t think it would function very well by itself if it didn t have the entire Ender s Game saga before it It doesn t seem like they did a whole lot with 168 pages worth of material, but I d be interested to finish the graphic novel series and see if I like it I ve also not read any of Orson Scott Card s novels about the first first formic war, so I can t compare it to that 2 stars not because it s bad, but while I wouldn t discourage anyone reading this, I wouldn t [...]

    13. When I ordered this book, I was unaware that this is a comic book But having read just about everything else in the Ender verse, I wasn t going to send it back And I wasn t disappointed in the least This is really a very entertaining book and an excellent read Now, I ll have to eagerly await the sequel Formic Wars Silent Strike My advice if you want to read this make sure you have the sequel at hand, before you open this one

    14. An interesting book comic that answers questions I never really asked It fleshes out the history of Card s Enderverse This volume includes the comics up to this point, so the story hasn t been finished There hasn t been anything terribly original in the story, and the Formics aren t how I pictured them, but an okay read that has the potential to get better or worse in subsequent issues, which may force me to adjust my rating.

    15. Graphic novel Ender prequel but not nearly as good as it should have been Unimpressive art though not bad , unimpressive writing and most problematic unimpressive story Just not the right story to take to this media Sure it is Ender and I ll read just about anything in the Enderverse but I d hoped for better.

    16. I read this after reading the first 2 books, Earth Unaware Earth Afire This graphic novel really disappointed me I thought it would be a good companion piece but it left out way too much backstory Like most comics all meat no vegetables I hope the third book Earth Awakens is better than some of the reviews I read and gets me excited about continuing my read through the Enderverse.

    17. Not altogether keen, to be honest the artwork has its appealing moments, and I like the storytelling as always with OSC but I d have to see a bit to see how this fits into a bigger picture before commenting in any detail on matters of construction and theme Definitely Of Interest though, and I ll be keeping an eye out for future volumes.

    18. I recognize this came before the earth unaware afire books, but I enjoyed the longer treatment and the opportunity for the characters to have a little development that was available for the novels than I enjoyed the abbreviated version of the story.

    19. An interesting look at a how the war against the Buggers began I liked how the initial combat involved non military assets who were out on the fringes of human space and thus met the aliens first The story was a tad so so overall, but it did have nice moments here and there.

    20. it was nice to get insight on the world Ender was born into I liked the mention of intelligence in children, not only did it give a foreshadowing into Ender s Game, it gives a hint as to where the concept of using children as leaders came into play Looking forward to the next in the series.

    21. The only thing wrong is that there isn t enough of it Given the number of characters and the story arc it would have been nice to see character development and back storyStill a must if you re a fan of Ender s Game.

    22. Nice to get a new little entry into the Enderverse As I flipped through the first couple pages, I wasn t sure I d continue It s a very different way to injest an Ender story But before long I was hooked, and am now excited about part II.

    23. I enjoyed this initial installment Nice progression of the story good to hear how it all started There was even some character progression especially with Lem I would enjoy reading the rest of the story.

    24. I loved the story I didn t get any of that icky this is a prequel feeling you sometimes get with movies And I m a sucker for cool space ships, even if they are just mining vessels.

    26. I thought this was an actual book prequel to Ender s Game, so I was disappointed when it ended up being a comic book format, however it was interesting Just wish it had been a full book
