    This is the second book in what I'm calling the Nick Experiment, wherein I read it, and then make the kid read it to verify (or not) my claims of suckage. And this was making me feel like a superior parent. Then a few minutes ago, I had my 9 year old lie and tell the Jehovah's Witnesses at the door that 'Mommy has the flu'. And, once again, I've knocked myself out of the running for Mother of the Year.

And this was making me feel like a superior parent. Then a few minutes ago, I had my 9 year old lie and tell the Jehovah's Witnesses at the door that 'Mommy has the flu'. And, once again, I've knocked myself out of the running for Mother of the Year. Although, when you think about it, learning how to deflect JWs is a freakin' awesome life-skill to hand down to your children. Can I get an amen?! *crickets chirping* M'kay. Well, I tried. *shrugs* Anyway. So, I thought this one was a bit of an improvement on the first graphic novel, James Patterson's Witch and Wizard: Battle for Shadowland (Witch & Wizard: The Comic #1). First, notice how it says The Comic #1? Ok. That's where some of the confusion came in for me and the kid. These are not (as we originally thought) graphic novelizations of the books. They're actually in-between stories, like the filler novellas that lots of writers put out. Blah-Blah 1.5 or Blah-Blah 4.5. Which explains why you're dropped into the middle of everything with little to no backstory. This little nugget of information made my reading experience a bit better, but I still thought it was kind of a crap story. But let's see what the Target Audience thought, shall we? Me: So, what did you think of this one? Him: Mom, nobody would be this stupid. Me: Explain. Him: Ok, first thing Whit does is teleport, or whatever, himself into the middle of the bad guys...because they're burning books. *eye roll* I mean, really?! I get that he loves to read, and that burning books is bad, but that's just stupid. Me: Ok. But what if he really loves books? Him: *massive eye roll* Are you serious? So. What. Say they're burning books in another country. Are you telling me that you'd get on a boat, and paddle over there to try to make them stop? No. Because they'd probably just kill you and burn the books anyway. Me: Jeez. They might just put me in jail. I think these violent video games are getting to you. Him: *eyes completely roll out of his head* Me: Fine. What else? Him: They don't cuss. Me: And? Him: Well, they have words like 'creep' in black letters, like they're bad words or something. I'm telling you right now, if someone was shooting at me...I'd be cussing. Me: It's a book for tweens, Nick. And a lot of parents don't want their kids reading books with cuss words in them. Him: *eyes now rolling around on the ground independently* Me: So what did you think about the new girl that liked Whit? Him: Uuuuuuuuugh. That whole thing at the end? No. Me: You mean when they decided to just be friends, because he still has a thing for his ex-girlfriend? Him: You mean the dead ex-girlfriend that we've never seen? Why does he even like her? Did I mention that she's...DEAD? Me: Yeah, but what about the new girl? Him: First of all, in real life, there's no way that girl would have been all I understand, Whit! and given him a fist-bump. He basically dumped her for a dead girl. It would have gotten ugly. Me: You never know, she could have been a really cool girl who just... Him: *eyes now spinning like they're possessed* Me: Fine. You're right. What did you think about the plot?. Him: They just kept doing stupid things over and over again. And having a new leader elected each week? Even I know that's a dumb idea. Can I go now? Me: Yeah, sure. Hey, this was fun! Wanna do this again sometime? Him: *snort* Yeah. Me: *teary-eyed smile* Him: Wait. You were serious?!

    I wanted to like this book more than I liked the first one but sadly they're about the same. The art is adequate for the story and the story is about as interesting as the one in the first book which only made me remember that I have read it before and done better by smaller and bigger comic book companies. I suppose if you are are fan you should read the book, otherwise avoid them for something like "God loves, Man kills." Just saying.

    This is the second graphic novel in a series. Unfortunately, I'm not sure if there are others. In this, a brother and sister are in a resistance movement against a regime that has taken over and rules by oppression. The artwork and quality of the book are outstanding.

    I love the witch and wizard series but I wasn't a fan of the story in this or the art style :-(

    I read James Patterson's Witch & Wizard Operation Zero graphic novel. The witch is Wisty Allgood, and the wizard is her brother, Whit Allgood. They've been cast out of their society, because they possess special magical powers, and they are told that they can bring down the New Order (N.O.), a totalitarian regime set to protect their society to dispose of anyone or anything that causes rebellion. It is Wisty's turn to be the leader of their secret organization to oust the New Order's leader, I read James Patterson's Witch & Wizard Operation Zero graphic novel. The witch is Wisty Allgood, and the wizard is her brother, Whit Allgood. They've been cast out of their society, because they possess special magical powers, and they are told that they can bring down the New Order (N.O.), a totalitarian regime set to protect their society to dispose of anyone or anything that causes rebellion. It is Wisty's turn to be the leader of their secret organization to oust the New Order's leader, The One, and she's stressed with her role to make such hard decisions for their group. Whit asks Wisty for her help in stopping a book burning, but Wisty tells him that it would not be in their best interest. Whit doesn't listen and goes alone and is met with resistance from guards of the N.O. Luckily, a girl, Katia, with a magical gift helps him to escape. Meanwhile, Wisty hears news from her friend, Margo, that an insider from the N.O. has information to help them in their fight against The One. If they follow Henry, the informant, they will be led to a book that has spells that can take away The One’s powers. Wisty thinks this intel could lead them to a trap, but the group, Byron, Whit, Katia, Wisty, and Henry, go anyway to the N.O.’s underground compound called The Lab. Wisty and the group are deceived. Is Henry to blame? Will Wisty and Whit capture the book of spells that can oust The One of his magical powers? The theme for this graphic novel would be courage and cooperation. Wisty and her group of friends show enormous strength to accept the risk to stop the N.O, and they work together as a team to do it. James Patterson’s Witch & Wizard Operation Zero graphic novels series are a fantastic opportunity for readers who are less interested in reading his lengthier novels. The pictures add a visual perspective that draws teens attention toward this series. I enjoyed reading this graphic novel, however, it’s best to read his series in order. This is the second graphic novel in the series, and I don’t have any clue as to what they are talking about with some of their conversations. In addition, I thought the graphics were fantastic, but it takes away from my own imagination. This graphic novel would be a fantastic opportunity to utilize as a segue way into having students make their own graphic novel, to study art, or to engage those readers who are disinterested in full-length novels. It also opens the opportunity for an interdisciplinary learning segment between ELA and Social Studies as this book relates to a WWII theme.

    Sorry, this graphic novel was lame like the first. 2.5 at best, but entirely worthy of a stand-alone 2. The art is bleh. At times I almost enjoy it, but I'm bombarded with yet another "teenage" girl in a belly shirt and I say to myself, "humph, wonder why the artist insists no girls where normal outfits." Then there is the bleh writing, and the bad bubble placement. It gets in the way of the cells. There are dozens of YA graphic novels I would recommend in front of this.

    Yep, still bad. Almost worse. The book follows the same pattern as the first. Even down to the trying to fry The One Who is the One. The whole thing just irritates me. Patterson so badly wants a Harry Potter world, but he just sucks at YA fantasy. Whit and Wisty (two of the dumbest book names by the way) are beyond irritating and cliched. I really just can't stand them. I was hoping the graphics would stand up better than the first book, but they just don't. Now at least I can say I gave the eff Yep, still bad. Almost worse.

    I didn't like Operation Zero. This graphic novel only reminded me of how irritated I was with what happened in this series during The Fire. What kind of depiction was this of Wisty? Full of curves, impossible. Because as opinionated and loud-mouthed she is, Wisty was awkward with her body, looks, and power. And Whit was a such a jerk here. Is this the boy who's constantly pining over Celia? Ridiculous.

    Read the novels...so much better! These graphic novels fall flat and just sort of leave you wanting more. The graphic novels can't do the dystopian world justice and the art in these are very childlike, it looks sort of like Archie Comics.

    I have to say that this Graphic novel was much better than the actual novels in this series. I liked that there was another character that had magic. I liked the plot line involving an old book with the power to bind magical abilities. I also loved that they traveled through new dimensions other than the shadowland. All told a well done comic.

    The 2nd in the series by James Patterson, we have witches, wizards, fighting, and book burning. Though the story was a quick read for me while waiting to work for a customer I enjoyed it and thought it a good selection for middle school or older readers.

    I'll have to say I was surprised when this graphic novel turn up on my 'hold' shelf as I was expecting the next novel. I decided to read it anyway and enjoyed it, but I still will be looking for the next novel installment of the series.

    This is an okay book, but you have to be a REALLY hardcore Whit and Wisty fan to like it.

    I raced through it. Artwork was too cartoonish. The storyline could not keep my attention. Won't read any of the others in the series.
