Review : Graphics are wonderful, storyline is o.k. which is kind of what I expected. This was my very first Nancy Drew story so, I'm not sure where the bar lies. I thought I might be playing limbo with this one and I was pretty much right. The story is kind of hard to believe for old timers like myself. That said I think it's just the thing for a 7-9 year old to really get excited about..at a sleep over with other 7-9 year olds. The high quality of the graphics kept me reading and the over-the-top, high drama that is oozing out from EVERYWHERE does involve a very creepy, greedy old lady. It's a fun little book for car trips and such. I imagine myself at 7 years old, bag of Jolly Ranchers, Hubba Bubba and Pixie Stix just going wild for it. Critical Reviews : Could not find any reviews on this one.

    When I first saw that this comic book was going to be re-published to include two graphic novels in one, I immediately e-mailed +Stefan Petrucha to see if he had any ARC's up for grabs. He didn't, but he did forward my e-mail to +Papercutz and they ended up sending me a copy! I was so excited, even if it is a book for people 8-12 years old, I believe any age range can enjoy Nancy Drew no matter what!

I grew up playing the Nancy Drew games, and even though I am super huge on books, I didn't even know there was a series by the amazing Carolyn Keene until just last year. How late am I, I mean seriously? Anyway! I love this book not only because it is a greatly drawn graphic novel with 3D CG elements and color, but also because of the simple yet clever story line with some twists and turns. Not to mention a sweet "Tales From the Crypt" mention was dropped and it made me smile! I really just loved going back in time and visiting my childhood in a familiar way with Nancy, George, Bessie, and Ned all grouping together to solve the mysteries and sometimes (almost always) that Nancy gets them into!

    This is an interesting story in that it takes something from the older Nancy Drew where she had a dog named Togo, and works it into the story. Hannah is scared by something and Nancy and the girls find a window where the thing escaped from. Nancy goes into a tree to follow it and something jumps on her face. Enter Togo. Nancy goes to the town the dog supposedly came from to return it and finds no one there except for old elderly, rather nasty woman. This leads to the mystery of where is everyone This is an interesting story in that it takes something from the older Nancy Drew where she had a dog named Togo, and works it into the story.

Nancy goes to the town the dog supposedly came from to return it and finds no one there except for old elderly, rather nasty woman. This leads to the mystery of where is everyone, and what does the old woman have to gain by the situation. The ending is a little different from the older-style Nancy Drew endings. The town is very poor and remains so, and in the original books a town that was in that condition would have something happen (old treasure found, etc.) which would not only solve Nancy's mystery but supply the town with the money it needed.

I read this for a graphic novel genre assignment. I just can't get in to graphic novels. The mystery in this was pretty lame. I was a big fan of Nancy Drew as a child, but don't know how the old mysteries would hold up for me today.

    Doggone Town is a graphic novel based on the Nancy Drew series by Carolyn Keene. In this mystery, Nancy finds a missing dog. As she and her boyfriend, Ned, return the dog, the discover an ornery lady and an entire missing town. Together, they find the missing people and discover the truth behind this mean lady. Especially after reading American Born Chinese, this graphic novel felt really young. I read a Nancy Drew book or two when I was in middle school, so I thought I'd give this a try.

The pictures that went along with the story were fun; It was nice to see a depiction of what was happening; however, I wonder if providing pictures like this stifels kids' imaginations.

    I read this because WOW, I just had to see what the graphic novel of Nancy Drew was like. Overall, it was a cute little story about a dog that ends up in Nancy's room during a storm and the mystery Nancy encounters while trying to track down the dog's owner... My thoughts? Pros: * Nancy was actually strawberry blonde again! * Ned & Bess were SUPER cute * Brings Nancy Drew to a whole new audience Cons: * The storyline was WAAAAY too simple. No misdirection or anything—it was OBVIOUS who the bad guy was I read this because WOW, I just had to see what the graphic novel of Nancy Drew was like.

    Funny how I'm reviewing book #13 first, but that is where I started and whatever, I'll review the previous twelve when I get time. I find these graphic novels to completely take away from the real Nancy Drew. This plot was twisted yes and it left me guessing, but I don't understand how people could be so gulibale and stupid. And that dog was driving me nuts with it's habit of latching on to faces, I would have beat that thing silly, it wasn't even drawn to look cute, just plain.

    “Doggone Town (Nancy Drew: Girl Detective Graphic Novels #13)” by Stefan Petrucha is the first book in the “Nancy Drew: Girl Detective Graphic Novels” series that I have read. I thought the art of the dog was cute, and it was mainly like a comic book. One of the character drawings was kind of ugly, but other than that….I enjoyed it, and I want to read book one. 2015-Summer-Reading-Review

    Didn't know they had started making these into a comic series. But upon reflection it makes sense. E brought some home and I read them. Ok. But I like the books better. She liked the action agent part a bit more than the Nancy Drew sort of silly mysteries. Overall she likes the combo Drew-Hardy comics best.

    I liked the Nancy Drew series and like the graphic novel idea. It was quicker to read but wasn't like the original. It had the same characters and the plot was the same. The artist was good and there were some pretty weird pictures. I liked the graphic novel better than the original. I am going to read more of the series.

    This is yet another light-hearted and fast-paced Nancy Drew graphic novel. The mystery is quite strange but turns out to be fair, and Nancy gets to interact with a friendly dog. (Finished 2009-09-09 13:02:40 EDT)
