Review: The Dresden Files: Storm Front, Volume 2: Maelstrom

The Dresden Files: Storm Front, Volume 2: Maelstrom by Jim Butcher
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I really enjoyed the story, and the artwork was pleasing to the eye. The story did a great job of sticking to the original source, which doesn’t always happen with adaptations, so this was nice to find. Under normal circumstances I would have probably given it 4 of 5 stars.

The one major shortcoming of the volume to me was that at least 1/3 of the volume was consumed by “sneak peek” sketches for the next volume. This felt like filler used by the publisher to bulk up an otherwise skimpy volume to justify the cover price. The actual story arc content of this volume could have easily been added to the first volume.
