    While this is an older book, I fell in love with it only a few chapters in. This is hands down my favourite book that I have read this year! A pleasant surprise for me as I was not expecting anything! Well done Mr. Koontz!

    I really enjoyed this. Too bad we don't have the rest of the story in graphic novel form :-( It took a while to get this purchased by the library but I'm glad it's now available...been waiting to read it since 2010. In the forward, Dean Koontz writes: I have promised to write the third Chris Snow, and I will. In fact, I have begun it. Meanwhile, I am delighted with this graphic novel, and I think Derek Ruiz, Grant Alter, and Robert Gill have produced a brilliant adaptation. So hang on and hang t I really enjoyed this.

So hang on and hang ten through this apocalypse with monkeys. The official name of the series in Moonlight Bay. In one picture in the graphic novel, I found it strange that the police station has the name "Midnight Bay Police" on the front - I wonder if this was a mistake? Favorite Quotes/ Dialogue: "Suddenly everything seemed significant." Chris: No one can carry the entire world on her shoulders. Angela: Some of us better try. Sasha: Love You Snowman. Chris: Love You. Sasha: That's our little mantra. Chris: It's our truth. My favorite scenes feature Monkeys and Dolls :-)

    It has been a long time since I read the novel of Fear Nothing and I was a little worried that I would not remember the storyline while reading the graphic novel. The graphic novel does it job in telling the story and did a real convincing job of displaying emotions of the characters. The artwork was decent but could use a little improvement. There were a couple of pages where characters looked too much alike.

    So it looks like this is only part of the story, and they never finished it in graphic novel form. I just picked up the book to start where the comic left off. I will leave a suggestion for where readers of this comic should start for a smooth transition soon. This volume was enough to pique my interest.

I will leave a suggestion for where readers of this comic should start for a smooth transition soon. This volume was enough to pique my interest. The mystery builds in layers and gets more interesting. It starts with the visceral (a character who cares about his parents, in particular his dying father). Then it goes into a possible government/paranormal realm with some murder to up the ante on tension. It reminded me a bit of a Harlan Coben book, just how the writing is done during moments of action. At its heart, this book is a thriller, and I enjoy learning more about thrillers as a genre. Anyway, the art work doesn’t suck. I don’t know why so many people on here have shat upon it. I liked it well enough. I’m actually excited to see how I visualize this novel now that I have had this aid.

    Opt for the book instead.... Having been a fan of Koontz's Moonlight Bay 'trilogy' (it's been 22 years since book 2!!!) and graphic novels in general, I was excited to read this. The book itself is great, I'd highly recommend it, but the artwork for this doesn't seem too fit the story. The facial expressions are not drawn well enough to convey character's emotions, Christopher looks like different people in different scenes, it almost seems a bit amateurish, and just kinda disappointing.

I was tempted to give this 2 stars because of the style of the art, but the story itself is good. Dean Koontz had a habit of creating characters who you can really warm to and root for, and Christopher Snow is one such character.

    First I listened to this but when I chose edition here I could not find the audio version. I know it was enhanced by the wonderful narration yet it was an enjoyable story and any book that includes a dog this much is a plus. The story was unique, the characters colorful, and dialogue interesting. I like the verbal banter among good friends and the subtle digs/parrying that took place. The ending leaves room for more or nothing, just enough if you liked the book to read the next and not too much t First I listened to this but when I chose edition here I could not find the audio version.

    This was a real page turner — I kept having to flip through the pages to FF through all of the unneeded verbal vomit to get to the point. I believe in setting up scenes and characters, but this was ridiculous! Koontz just blabbers incessantly about things that have absolutely zero to do with the plot or characters. I threw in the towel at about 3/4 of the way through the book — something that I have NEVER done in my 50+ years of reading books.

    I loved this book. Being different is difficult to deal with and I really enjoyed the positivity and acceptance that was throughout the book. The characters are amazingly well crafted full of great personalities complete with strengths and weaknesses. The narrative allows for insight into the hero’s feelings, emotions, thoughts, motivations and actions. The dialogue is witty and intelligent. The storyline flows smoothly and quickly full of action, adventure, unique concepts and thoughtful insigh I loved this book.

    different read This book was different. I liked it but to me it ended to soon and in a strange place. Way to many questions. I don't like ending a book with so many questions left unanswered and this book did not really answer any of my questions. It touched on things but just kept adding more questions with no answers and more blood and gore. A bit disappointed because I have always liked how Dean writes. different read This book was different. I liked it but to me it ended to soon and in a strange place. Way to many questions.

    Fear Nothing thus far is my favorite of Koontz's work. I fell in love with the characters and the story that was being told. The protagonists unique medical condition was certainly an interesting and compelling aspect for the character. This book helped keep me awake and entertained when I worked overnight as a security guard, much like his other books had as well. Fear Nothing thus far is my favorite of Koontz's work.

    Love this graphic novel! Fear Nothing and Seize the Night are Dean Koontz books that I absolutely love! I was always hoping he would write more books for this series. I was so excited to see Fear Nothing in graphic novel format. It doesn’t disappoint at all. I’m excited to read the rest of the book in subsequent graphic novels. I love this so much!

    Had I known it was a comic book, I would not have wasted my time downloading it. Buyer beware Hard to read and basically pretty ridiculous I would be hard pressed to recommend this "book" to anyone. Dean Koontz it is not.

    The first of the Moonlight Bay trilogy. Introducing us to Christopher Snow and his rare gift/disease, XP. Christopher’s fathers advice, “Fear nothing Chris. Fear nothing”. We spend a day in his life, through his eyes. A real page turner.

    Koontz is so good at mood and description. Chris Snow cannot stand the light and his friends are accommodating of that. He has an eye disease that is debilitating. Yet, he is going to have the fight of his life in the dark.

    I liked the story and am familiar with the source material but very upset that this is Volume 1 and there has not yet been a Volume 2, and this particular book left the reader up in the air.
