Praise for Artemis Fowl:
'Artemis is a brilliant creation' – Antony Horowitz
'Reads like the fastest, punchiest comic strip you've ever come across' – Daily Telegraph
'Wickedly brilliant' – Independent

A stunning graphic-novel adaptation of the megaselling Artemis Fowl.
This adaptation of his genre-busting, award-winning novel Artemis Fowl has been a labour of love for lifelong graphic novel fan Eoin Colfer, and Andrew Donkin. Art by Giovanni Rigano and colour by Paolo Lamanna.
Twelve-year-old Artemis Fowl is a brilliant criminal mastermind. But even Artemis doesn't know what he's taken on when he kidnaps a fairy, Captain Holly Short of the LEPrecon Unit. These aren't the fairies of bedtime stories. These fairies are armed and they're dangerous. Artemis thinks he's got them just where he wants them, but then they stop playing by the rules . . .
