    This is how NOT to do a graphic novel adaptation. The Silver Eyes story is a complex one, and if you’re going to turn it into a graphic novel, you need to be prepared to handle the complexities of the story, and do a lot of explaining through art and visual exposition. Nothing of the sort happens here. Instead, we get a watered-down, bite-size version of the original story. It’s “The Silver Eyes”, diluted Saturday-morning-cartoon edition. Character information is next to nonexistent. We know tha This is how NOT to do a graphic novel adaptation. The Silver Eyes story is a complex one, and if you’re going to turn it into a graphic novel, you need to be prepared to handle the complexities of the story, and do a lot of explaining through art and visual exposition. Nothing of the sort happens here. Instead, we get a watered-down, bite-size version of the original story. It’s “The Silver Eyes”, diluted Saturday-morning-cartoon edition. Character information is next to nonexistent. We know that they’re childhood friends and Charlie’s dad owned the restaurant. That’s about it. There is no additional information given on any of the other characters and why they’re important, so most of them just feel shoehorned in for no reason other than to fill out the cast. Characters either read like caricatures (Carlton is a wise guy! Jessica is a pretty blonde!) or flat extras (Lamar is black. John is a guy). The art is abysmal. The anatomy is terrible, the colour palette is far too bright and saturated, and the character designs look like something out of a bad webcomic. Something about it, I don’t know exactly what, put me in mind of “CTRL+ALT+DEL”, which is absolutely never a good sign. Jessica looks like the villain in a “not like other girls” meme, with lots of pink lipstick, huge earrings, and outfits that use the same bright pink no matter what lighting she’s standing in. John has no defining features whatsoever—he’s just a brown-haired guy with a brown jacket. The only character whose design feels like an actual design is William/Dave, whose design I admittedly really liked, even if there are some points where his design is inconsistent or just a bit much (Why is he so thin everywhere else but his silhouette is built like a linebacker in the police car? Why does he still look insane in the peaceful photograph of him and Henry?). The problem is that this makes the other characters seem even more flat and uninspired in comparison. There is no emotion conveyed in most of the art whatsoever. No emotional lighting, no memorable facial expressions, and lots of clunky attempts at showing emotion, such as large, bright blue tears and sweat droplets. The technical aspect of the art is awful, too—character’s colours don’t change to match lighting, shadows move orientation from one panel to the next. There’s even some places where important transitional panels are just cut altogether, making the reader guess what went on between these panels (Charlie hears a loud thud and is then hugging Marla, who I’m guessing had knocked on a door and Charlie opened it; Charlie slams a door in a room she’s never shown approaching or entering; etc.). A story like FNaF could have fantastic graphic novel art, with lots of mood lighting and clever perspective changes. It’s a horror story with haunted robots. Do something creative with the fantastic world you’ve been given! Glitching words, creepy effects making use of the metal in the animatronics...I’ve seen so many clever things done by artists in the fandom, and it’s an absolute shame that in a professionally illustrated, official graphic novel, not a single creative opportunity was taken. Panels move along with no sense of creativity or artistry. When it comes to art, it’s one of the laziest graphic novels I’ve ever read. It also seems that there was an attempt to tone the story down in order to market it to a younger audience, and this attempt didn’t go well at all. Unfortunately, it’s a problem FNaF fans are all too familiar with, with ten-year olds on YouTube watching playthroughs and then becoming obsessed with a franchise they don’t understand and aren’t ready for. This has been much to the detriment of the older fans (and original audience), who now have to sit through things like this. This was published under Scholastic’s Graphix label, and unlike the original Silver Eyes trilogy, there is no content warning, meaning that things had to be toned down, since it was being marketed to younger fans. This is a real problem, because it means we’ve lost out on what could have been a great graphic novel that makes use of the horror genre in a new and creative way for the original audience of FNaF. Instead, we get bright red, sparsely used, Monty Python-esque blood and awkward attempts to lighten the tone of a horror story about murdered children. For example, unlike the original novel, it isn’t made clear that the animatronics are haunted by the spirits of the kids who died in them, so you’re just left confused as to why they’re haunted. Michael/Golden Freddy is the only one that’s explained, and even then it’s very softly. These attempts at making the story kid-friendly are made even more awkward by the points in the story that were kept from the original book, such as William/Dave’s graphic explanation of death-by-springlocks, and Clay’s mentioning how he saw the blood streaks left by Michael’s body. It feels like they couldn’t quite decide whether to keep the original tone or make it a kiddie comic, so they just did both. We need a new FNaF graphic novel, one that’s actually marketed to people who can appreciate it. This watered-down, bland attempt was just laughable. But laughable in the way where you’re not really laughing, you’re cringing and wishing PewDiePie had never uploaded a playthrough.

    Update: After reading the actual novel that this book was based on I will change the rating from 3 stars to 2. Considering how much information was in the book, I feel like this graphic novel failed at delivering the story properly.

    *I have an ARC of this book* I like to think I'm pretty familiar with the lore of FNAF (Thanks Game Theory!), but I'd never read the books. But when I got the chance to read an ARC of the graphic novel of Silver Eyes, I was curious. I do think it suffered a little bit from not being the completed version because 98% of the drawings are still rough drafts and not finished or colored so I had a little trouble figuring out which character was which sometimes. But it was fun to read. I think it's als *I have an ARC of this book* I like to think I'm pretty familiar with the lore of FNAF (Thanks Game Theory!), but I'd never read the books.

I probably won't read the rest of the books, but since I got this one for free, I wasn't going to turn the opportunity down.

    A quick read, it only makes sense if you are familiar with FNAF. It gets a five because Charlie/Charlotte/The puppet/The marionette is my favorite character.

    Short graphic novel based on the full novel. Almost too short but good for a recap of what happened in a short read. Read the novel for the full story. Illustrations are great at showing potentially confusing characters/events

Original review down below. Super creepy and I’m not sure I quite understand about the kids who were killed and how the missing twin ties into everything and who killed the father and I’m left with more questions then answers. 3, I’m confused, stars.

    I enjoyed this as an introduction to the Five Nights At Freddy's series (which until recently I thought was only a game!) Will definitely be picking up more of the graphic novels in the series in the future. Sufficiently creepy, spooky and twisty to keep the reader in suspense. My only criticism would be the language the teenagers use is very proper and formal, doesn't really feel right for the group of friends. But that wasn't enough to put me off.

The writing is choppy. The book certainly contains the chase scenes I anticipated after reading a brief description of the video game. I don’t know what age this book is for, but I think it is appropriate when the kid is ready for the following content/themes: - children being murdered (depicted on drawings by children, described in text) - parental suicide - torture suit description(which deploy metal hooks into the person wearing them and which kill the person slowly) - including a depiction of this happening - sex joke - “do you know what I put you inside?” “Your girlfriend” - parents coping with the disappearance of their son - abduction: depiction of a preschooler watching her brother be abducted, abduction of a teenager - murder: depiction of murder of an adult, attempted murder of a teenager The main characters are mostly teenagers -I think they are almost college age. Lastly, even though the main characters solve the disappearances/murders, they do nothing to resolve the case/bring solace to the parents of the abducted. Highly unsatisfying storyline.

    Not horrible, but not great, either. The art was just okay. You get the impression the artist does a lot of FNAF fan art (the animatronics looked amazing), but the rest of the people just looked kinda weird (view spoiler)[especially Dave. What got me was when they showed pictures of him with Henry, and he looked like a complete nutcase, even though it was supposed to be a nice, normal picture). (hide spoiler)] If you liked the original The Silver Eyes book, you might enjoy this one. However, I do Not horrible, but not great, either. The art was just okay.

    This is more of a complimentary graphic novel to the original book rather than a standalone. A lot of information is missing for anyone who picks up the graphic novel if they've never read the book. I had to read a summary of the original book to understand the backstory and all character relationships. I enjoyed the artwork, but this graphic novel was lacking in story development and was very confusing in understanding the plot.

    I love this book! I’m really into Five Nights at Freddys right now. I played the game and learned the lore in the game and made theories and this throws them all off, so I’m a bit confused but other than that amazing book and can’t wait to get the rest of the series!

    I never read any of the FNAF books before, but when I saw the ARC of this, I decided to give it a shot. I love reading all the theories about FNAF and this game series has such a complex storyline, I figured it would be hard to translate into a book. Obviously I don’t know how the actual book did with telling the story of Freddy Fazbears, but the graphic novel was a little hard to follow. That could have something to do with only the first chapter being inked and colored so far, but I liked the I never read any of the FNAF books before, but when I saw the ARC of this, I decided to give it a shot.

There were a few parts where I was confused about what was happening, or how a scene was supposed to connect to the main plot, but I still enjoyed reading it. It felt like reading a fanfic someone wrote when they were 13 or 14: not exactly the best, but still enjoyable.

    This was just a crap fest. The art was okay, it the storyline was just bad. I only read it because my Son loves this stupid line and I wanted to read it to make sure it was okay for him to read. I don’t think it was the best, but I allowed him to read it and him being 11 loved it. I’m glad he was reading, but sad it was this tripe.

    Pretty alright. Decently written, the characters are kinda boring though. It also might be confusing to outsiders since this book is more of an au and less of a direct adaptation. It was kinda just okay. Adds interesting concepts for theorys.

    2.5 Very middle of the road with some very mild creepiness. It went by too quickly and glossed over all the impoartant details that the novel had. It could have taken more time to focus on those details for this adaptation. The art style was OK, but not my favorite.
