The Hardy Boys Papercutz Graphic Novel #8 Board to Death ~ My Review

Cool cover art and exciting mystery for the 8th volume of Papercutz’s Hardy Boys graphic novel series! 😎 I’ve read this a couple of times now and enjoy this great summer (or any time of the year! 😉 ) read each time. The Hardy brothers, action, adventure, humor, danger – yeah, it’s got all that. 😎 A lot to love about the book! 🙂

The cover art is by Daniel Rendon and the rest of the artwork in the graphic novel is drawn by Paulo Henrique. Both the story and the drawings work together to give the reader an exciting mystery! 😎

The book begins with the dangerous finale action of a case, and as I’ve mentioned before that’s something I really like when they have that in this series. For the Hardy Boys graphic novel #8, the brothers are in the process of rescuing a kidnapped girl. It’s great with Joe and Frank dressed as pirates and Joe had a lot of fun with the pirate talk annoying the bad guys! 🙂 Fun! 😀 When bad people get annoyed by good people it’s very cool and very enjoyable to read! 😀 

Awesome brother teamwork which I love to read! 😎 Fun brother banter, too. 😎

Here’s part of the synopsis from Papercutz ~

The brothers Frank and Joe Hardy go undercover at a major skateboarding contest in Venice, California to find out which competitor is trying to kill off the competition—literally?

They risk their lives as they try to keep everyone safe and solve who is behind the problems that could have deadly results. There are suspects to check out and quick before it’s too late. Good investigating and courage by Frank and Joe. 😎 Skateboarding is a cool sport and already dangerous, so when you add the elements of persons up to no good – watch out! 😮

I also really like that Joe pokes fun at the over-the-top attitudes when they put together his persona – Hardcase. 😀 That goes well for his hard head. 😉 😛

Such thrilling action that you can almost see it jumping off the pages as the reader is caught up in the danger. The brothers do a great (and extremely-necessary-with-all-the-danger) job looking out for each other. 😎 When I’m reading, I’m there with them every second.

The finale is pulse-pounding excitement and I LOVE the way the Hardy brothers outsmart their foe (or foes, not saying, so it’s spoiler free.). 😎 Once you’ve read it, you want immediately to go read it again! Cool action! 😎

At the close of the book when the Hardy bros are back home in Bayport, Aunt Trudy even gets a new nickname and that was fun as well as nice of her cool nephews. 🙂

This Hardy Boys graphic novel has definite re-readability! If you haven’t read it yet, hopefully you will get an opportunity to do so. 🙂 You won’t be bored to death. 😉 What? You didn’t think I was going to miss saying that, did you? 😆 It’s available in ebook and used paperback or hardcover. Check online and at libraries as well as used bookstores to find a copy! 🙂 I’ve read some great Hardy Boys graphic novels from Papercutz so far and this is one of them. 🙂 Thank you to all of the nice people @Papercutz! 🙂 A cool book is one that is enjoyed on reading it the first time and every time. 🙂

The Hardy Boys Papercutz Graphic Novel #7 The Opposite Numbers ~ My Review

A roller coaster ride for The Hardy Boys graphic novel, The Opposite Numbers, volume 7 from Papercutz! 😀 Great cover, as you can see in this post! 😎 I love the beginning of the book with the case they’ve been working on. The brothers are doing their part to rescue Aunt Trudy’s parrot, Playback, and other animals. Good action and humor in the opening scenes – really enjoyable. 🙂 Very re-readable, too. 😀 I’ve read it quite a few times! 😎 I really like way the Undercover Brothers finish a case at the beginning of the books and then go to the next one. 😎 Opening with exciting action is always cool. 😎

After that excitement is wrapped up, it’s time for a break from school for a while. 😎 Nice seeing Chet and Callie. 😎 I like that Callie was going to use her free time to help kids. 😎 Some of the rest of that scene didn’t make sense with whoever the one student was supposed to be seemed like she was snobby and narcissistic. 🙄 Didn’t care for that. 

Great cover – another favorite Hardy Boys Graphic Novel cover art! 😎 

Hardy Boys Graphic Novel #7 The Opposite NumbersOne of my absolute fave scenes in the book is the part at the train, right after Frank and Joe arrive there to board, and the Hardy brothers bravely do what they can to prevent a literal train wreck. Cool when they immediately ran to help – talk about exciting! 😎 I loved that!  😎 Another favorite scene is when the conductor needs help getting back in the train after getting pushed by a culprit. Courage and excitement! Great action in all of those 5 star scenes! I love the excitement, the danger, and the excellent teamwork, as in any Hardy Boys books that I enjoy. 🙂 😎

The book could be a little bit distracting at times because it went back and forth between artists. First was Daniel Rendon, then Paulo Henrique, then back to Daniel Rendon, and then the rest of the book was Paulo Henrique and Sidney Lima.That shouldn’t stop anyone from reading it, though!

There were various characters on the train Frank and Joe had to help and contend with, providing several suspects. You had to figure out if the characters were just sorta odd or wackos. The Noir sisters are…annoiring. 😉 The gung-ho guard dude was also seriously annoying. There are annoying people out there, though! I knew there were two trustworthy people on the train – Frank and Joe. 😎

The parts I loved I really loved and want to read again! 🙂 Always, I love the brothers teamwork and not giving up even when things look bad! 😎

Hardy Boys graphic novel #7 The Opposite Numbers from Papercutz is available digitally at ebooksellers and at libraries as well as used booksellers in paperback and hardcover. 🙂 It’s definitely worth a read or two or more! 🙂
