    Three Raymond Chandler short stories featuring Philip Marlowe done graphic novel style. One of them worked for me and the other two didn't. The good one is "Goldfish" chiefly because of Rian Hughes great retro art style, which reminded me a little of Darwyn Cooke. Besides being one of Chandler's best short works I found the adaptation to be very engaging. I could enjoy a whole book of adaptations by him. The others didn't fare as well, "The Pencil" simply because it's one of Chandler's weaker wo Three Raymond Chandler short stories featuring Philip Marlowe done graphic novel style.

The others didn't fare as well, "The Pencil" simply because it's one of Chandler's weaker works and David Lloyd's framing of images seemed awkward to me, especially during the action scenes. The artwork to "Trouble Is My Business" looked even more amateurish than the last one. I think the whole book should be done again with Rian Hughes handling all the art. Gained a star for having the great Jim Steranko doing both the front and back covers.

    Entertaining graphic adaptions of three of Raymond Chandler's Philip Marlowe stories. 1. Goldfish-were Marlowe joins a hunt stolen pearls. 2. The Pencil-A mob hit team endangers Marlowe client and Marlowe. Of the three stories this is my favorite. 3. Trouble is My Business-the bodies pile up as Marlowe try's to break a dame's hold a rich kid. Read this collection and join this urban knight on these mean streets.

    I bailed. Just not my genre.

    Raymond Chandler's Marlowe: The Graphic Novel is a fantastic graphic novel adaptation of Raymond Chandler's Philip Marlowe short stories "The Pencil," "The Goldfish," and "Trouble is My Business." The art is all together well done. Each story is illustrated by different artists with their own perspective style. I found the art in "The Goldfish" to be lacking in comparison to the other stories, but it was still good. The dialogue was well done, perfectly fitted into graphic novel format.

    I'm not much into graphic novels, but this was a gift from my parents, and it was a fun way to pass an afternoon. The artwork in the first story was clunky and awkward, but the second two stories had great shading and a dark noir feel. At times I felt like the writing was a little awkward (how exactly does one "draw" Marlowe's spoken thoughts?), but I ended up most enjoying the sequences that actually relied entirely on images, similar to a film montage, which worked quite well in all three stor I'm not much into graphic novels, but this was a gift from my parents, and it was a fun way to pass an afternoon.

The cover image was retro-cool and introduced me to the work of Jim Steranko, so I may check out his Chandler book in the near future.

    An interesting take on Chandler's work. I enjoyed it, but I prefer the originals. The second story, The Pencil, was the final Marlowe story Chandler wrote before his death and I may have to hunt down the original.

    Three solid Marlowe stories done up in graphic form. I will admit that Chandler's prose and language loses something when you turn it into a funnybook, but these were still three satisfying comic petit-fours.

    A faithful adaptation of Chandler's work in the graphic novel form. It is done in the Noir style and that works really well with the stories.

    I enjoyed the first story, Goldfish, the best (art, adaptation) but the entire book was pretty enjoyable. The language and dialogue were a hoot.

    Adaptations of several of Chandler's Marlow stories - Goldfish, the Pencil and one other one. Not recommended, a lot feels missing.

    Enjoyable take on the noir stories of Chandler. Marlowe is an intriguing character and I find a modern counterpart in Connelleys Bosch
