The Strain- Graphic Novel vs. T.V. Show + Review
Many people out there do not like it when a movie or TV show is based on a novel, and if it is a graphic novel it makes it worse because the readers already have a visual on what is going on with the novel. Personally, I love it when they are able to successfully morph a book into a movie or TV show; whether it is a young adult novel or an action-packed horror graphic novel.
Being a fan of horror and especially vampires made it impossible for me to not watch The Strain. It is however based on a graphic novel of the same name by Guillermo Del Toro and Chuck Hogan. I have never read the novels but having marathoned and enjoyed the show, I was still very curious and skeptical afterwards on if the TV show could compare to the novels.
After doing some research I found that there was not any legitimate websites out there where they compared the show to the novels. Fortunately it did come to my attention that Fox Horror (FX) created a site where they not only compare episodes for you but they also compare scenes that you can view by flipping the pages like an actual novel. The site features music, amazing graphics and exclusive video clips revolved around The Strain Season 1.
It is so entertaining and something you will not find anywhere else. I urge you to check it out now. You would not want to miss this. Click the direct link here: http://bit.ly/
