    Hmm... not sure whether to give it four or five stars... so I guess I'll go with 4.5. Anyway, I admit it. I. Really. Liked. It! Finally found a good ND graphic novel. I'm not usually a fan of the ND graphic novels as they are so slow and not so interesting as the HB ones. But this one, was. A. Really. Good. One! I really liked it! Looking forward to reading the second one soon. Also, after reading it, part of me is thinking of trying the Dana Girls series. Someday maybe, hehe.

    3 1/2 Stars. Pretty interesting two part mystery which I thankfully got to read one right after the other - and it is important to read them in order! I liked figuring out the mystery. The Dana sisters and Nancy, George, and Bess teaming up is cool. I like Part 1 more than Part 2. I thought, though, when the friends were saying the various cases Nancy solved, it should have been clearer that it wasn't actually the ghost, etc., stuff they said, but just that it looked like that. Please check out 3 1/2 Stars. Pretty interesting two part mystery which I thankfully got to read one right after the other - and it is important to read them in order!

    Ugly, generic, knock-off anime aesthetic artwork with lots of weird extra blue line art that just made every page look like it had pen squiggles all over it. The dialog was annoying and not well-written. The running gag of the Dana Girls finishing Nancy's sentences got old fast. The concept of the mystery contest and the real mystery was boring, cliched, obvious, and stupid. And they got Jean and Louise's hair colors mixed up! I love Nancy Drew and I love the Dana Girls.

    I liked that the characters were easily distinguishable by their hair color or maybe clothing. It is set at a boarding school, so several of the characters had a similar outfit, but I was never confused. It was a quick read, and I figured out the mystery well in advance of the characters, but I am an adult and have been reading Nancy Drew for 20+ years.

    When I was in High School both Nancy Drew and the Hardy Boys' original series had ended and had been replaced with two modern series of dubious quality. Somewhere in that time frame comic publisher papercutz developed a separate Nancy and Hardy Boys graphic novel series based on those modern series. While I liked the art, the expense and the low grade stories kept me away from collecting these. This particular volume was marked down for a dollar, and is noteworthy for the first use of the Dana Gi When I was in High School both Nancy Drew and the Hardy Boys' original series had ended and had been replaced with two modern series of dubious quality. Somewhere in that time frame comic publisher papercutz developed a separate Nancy and Hardy Boys graphic novel series based on those modern series. While I liked the art, the expense and the low grade stories kept me away from collecting these. This particular volume was marked down for a dollar, and is noteworthy for the first use of the Dana Girls since the late 1970s. Credited to the pen name of the Nancy Drew books, the Dana Girls were sort of a mixture of Boarding school drama and a female variant of the Hardy Boys. I've never read them, though I own a few (Frank and Joe win gals, sorry!). Set up under a dubious premise, Nancy finds herself at the Starhurst School for Girls. There she meets Jean and Louise Dana, twins with an equal apt for mystery solving. Unfortunately the second string friends for each detective get all the girls stuck in a ...musical based contest to test which girl detective(s) are better. Yeah, the plot's pretty illogical. But the humor and character development are pretty good. Having not read the Dana girls, but being familiar with them, it's interesting to see their dynamic work. The boarding school setting and characters have a life to them that make it all the more a shame that they've been unused since Simon and Schuster bought out the Stratemeyer Syndicate. Certain things flat out don't gel. This series is set in the 21st century, but much of what we're told of the Dana girls and their world clearly stem from the early 20th Century. A private school for girls in the US that collects museum pieces? Faculty that adopt students? A 16 year old American in 2010 being named Lettie or Ina? Nancy, Louise and Jean also also immediately shown to be equals, which literally ends up with them finishing each other's sentences like Huey, Dewey, and Louie. See, when Nancy teams up with the Hardy Boys, the gender and personality differences causes a sort of electric synergy. Here it feels like Nancy in three different hair colors. Sure Jean and Louise are a bit different from Nancy, but no time is given to develop them as individuals. While I appreciate the sense of humor and suspense, the plot is Scooby Doo levels of incoherent. Sabotage being S&S autopilot plot for these series leads to a twist that's not so surprising, thought the cliffhanger is rather good. This being a two parter, I don't have volume 2, but this is a decent read for what I paid. 10 bucks? Not on your life.

Their series of books ran to a total number of 34, and they are well-done. This story is updated to the present, of course. Nancy, Bess and George have come to the school and meet the Dana Girls. The personal foes they have are also present, Deidre being Nancy's main personal foe, and Lettie being the Dana Girls personal foe. The girls in the school decide to have a contest to see which is the better detective, and will present clues in a musical show format. Lettie and Deidre, of course, are working hard to make sure everything fails. While all of this is going on, though, an original Edgar Allen Poe manuscript is actually stolen from the school. It's a good first part of the story.
