    What a weird, mostly repetitive, dark, not very fun time.

    A couple of qualifiers: 1) I almost never read graphic novels and when I do, I mostly wish I was just reading a novel. I liked the Fahrenheit 451 adaptation well enough, but didn't think it really held a candle to the book. Also, I don't care for the style of artwork you often find in graphic novels and I hate reading anything written in all caps. So I'm not coming at this book as an appreciator of the medium. 2) The Martian Chronicles is my favorite book of all time. I know much of it practical [...]

    I love The Martian Chronicles. I remember it being the first sf novel I read that wasn't from the children's corner. Rocket Summer won me over. The novel enthralled me with its lyrical quality, dreamlike sequences of madness, subterfuge, hypocrisy, then finally, a redemption of sorts.So no offense to the artist, but this graphic novel doesn't live up to the grandeur of the novel. It's just a matter of taste, and it's not mine. I pictured vibrant colors, bold and fluid lines, and perhaps a collab [...]

    I read this book years ago and I can still remember the visions and the words. Rock Hudson looking into the pool of water and declaring who the Martians were. Loved it!

    Dave got this one from the library and, since it was sitting there, I thought I'd give it a read. I remember my father reading this one and him watching the 1979 miniseries. I must have come in at the end, as the only part I remembered was the very end with the father saying "here are the Martians." Those memories were enough for me to decide to give the graphic novel a try.I'm not that good with graphic novels (I miss a lot as I'm a written word person rather than a visual person) and consideri [...]

    This is an OK adaptation of The Martian Chronicles, but the strength of the original stories is in Bradbury's language, so once you've stripped the majority of that away what you're left with is much diminished.The artwork is fine and would work OK with something more plot-driven, but it failed to convey to me the pain, grief, loss and nostalgic yearning of the original. It would have taken something special and amazing to convey that artistically, and Calero just didn't do it.If you haven't rea [...]

    At $30, I am not quite sure who this book is for. Libraries with declining and sometimes empty book budgets don't need to spend that much money on a graphic adaptation of The Martian Chronicles, especially one with poor graphics. I love The Martian Chronicles and I love Ray Bradbury even more. It has been quite a while since I read the classic collections of tales set in an alien world with human themes. I was swept up again into the world of Bradbury's masterful creation. However, young childre [...]

    Bradbury was my first "favorite writer" back in the 60s. He is a man out of time - an anachrnoism. The night (change) surrounds him, but he crys out against it - - and that makes for some of the finest sf ever written. This series of short stories is a reexamination of our conquest of America. How we drove out the real owners and "took over" and brought everything we were running away from in Europe, with us - only more so. An author well worth the reading, short story collections, such as this, [...]

    The simple, vivid writing stays true to Bradbury's collection of stories in novel form, and the sense of eeriness one might draw from the original work is reflected well in the lively, detailed illustrations, as is the action. Though the characters follow their dreams of making a fresh start, both Bradbury's original work and the graphic novel portray that humans still have their flaws, even on Mars. I found Bradbury's take of what life is / would possibly be like on Mars to be very stimulating, [...]

    I have never understood the appeal of comic books (or "graphic novels", hoity toity!) While stylish, I find their layouts to be unwieldy and incredibly difficult to follow. Do I scan left to right, up or down? Both? Neither? There is no universal standard. I am at the mercy of the artist and however many cups of coffee he had that day. On the topic of art: static images in service of a narrative just doesn't mesh for me. When I read a novel, I get to draw on my imagination to conjure scenery in [...]

    This was quite disappointing. Ray Bradbury is one of my favorite authors and though I have not yet read The Martian Chronicles, I suspect this was a very bad adaptation of it. The writing seemed like a poorly chosen abridgement of what was written originally. It's kind of made up of a collection of short stories and I can tell that at least some of them are pretty good in substance as a whole, they just read really poorly in this format. I do still want to read the novel, but this adaptation can [...]

    Kelly, Central patron, July 2017, 2 stars:The Martian Chronicles was one of my favorite books in high school, so when I found a graphic novel version in my local library, I was excited to revisit the story in a different format. I was disappointed. Big chunks of the story were cut out so that when the climax arrived, it felt premature and unearned. Also, the artwork and dialogue bubbles were poorly done. Some chapters were painted so darkly that I couldn't make out what was going on, and the bub [...]

    An excellent graphic novel adaptation of the classic of science fiction by Ray Bradbury. I picked it up at a Dollar Tree, but it would have been worth paying cover price. Contains a fascinating introduction by Ray Bradbury from 2011, the year before he passed away.

    Jim
    It was decent

    Lacey
    I didn't care for this one. I didn't know what was going on. I should of read the original story first, then I may have known more. The pictures were interesting though.

    I liked seeing the adaptation but I wanted to see more martians.

    Not a lot room for detail in the graphic novel.

    Earth is reaching for the stars and visiting one if their closest neighbors. Journeying to Mars, the Earthlings are discovering the indigenous population, and each mission brings a greater understanding to the Martians. From the initial attempts at contact to the colonization, Mars’ modern history is explored.Adapted by Dennis Calero, Ray Bradbury’s The Martian Chronicles is an illustrated retelling of the classic 1950 collection of short stories by Ray Bradbury. The graphic novel also is il [...]

    Ray Bradbury's classic tales of voyages to Mars from Earth that often result in tragedy adapted to graphic novel form.That 3 stars up there is a generous form of 2.5. I liked certain parts better than others, and could have done without some stories. The art style fits the stories, but wasn't my favorite. I know I've read parts of The Martian Chronicles before, but I don't think the whole thing. From what I do remember, this seems a faithful rendition. Considering Bradbury himself did the intro [...]

    Bradbury’s Martion Chronicles sind ein Meilenstein der Sci-Fi. Eine Sammlung lose miteinander verwobener Kurzgeschichten, die Auslöschung der indigenen Bevölkerung und die Besiedlung des Mars beschreiben. Mehr Sozial- und Zeitkritik als Sci-Fi. Wissenschaftlich unhaltbar aber wunderbar poetisch.Dieses Buch versuchte Dennis Calero nun als Comic umzusetzen. Natürlich musste dabei ein Großteil der poetischen, grandiosen Sprache dran glauben. Wenn man nun diesen Comic liest und das Buch kennt, [...]

    p.46 We earth men have a talent for ruining big, beautiful things.Mr. Bradbury presents a rather gloomy view of colonizing Mars, it is delightful. Every new settlement story features the death of one civilization at the unfeeling hands of another. Coexistance between martians and homosapiens is never an option in the mind of the author; there includes no whisper of conciliation, only fear, violence, and death are possible outcomes. Bradbury outlines a violent culture (all of the characters are A [...]

    Há livros que nos deixam quase sem palavras e "As crônicas marcianas" de Bradbury é um deles.Inicialmente eu estranhei que o que era esperado ser ficção-científica não tinha tanto esse sentido. Portanto, leitor, esteja avisado. E esteja avisado também que você encontrará um excelente livro, que é difícil de definir, está além da ficção-científica propriamente dita, pois seus contos podem ser lidos como crítica social e política, homenagem a grandes escritores por vezes mal vis [...]

    Sigh. My feelings on this are pretty similar to how I felt for the new graphic novel version of Something Wicked This Way Comes, adapted by Ron Wimberly. Good art, good plot, but over-burdened by Bradbury's own prose. Bradbury's leanings towards long, poetic sentences work great in prose, but for me they get in the way of how graphic novels work. There's no room for the art to tell any of the story because the words are doing so much of the heavy lifting. It makes no sense---Bradbury himself has [...]

    Korynne
    I read this book because the name of my favorite band, The Rocket Summer, comes from this book. I really only enjoy sci-fi if it's believable. But this story wasn't believable. In this book, Mars is just like Earth: it has water and rain and trees and enough oxygen for people to survive. People live there and drive vehicles. If this book had been set on a fictitious planet, that would have made much more sense. There was a large lack of world building and character building. The graphic novel fe [...]

    Leaving the earth and journeying to Mars has been a long time dream of humanity. In these stories, by classic sic-fi writer, Ray Bradbury, the drawings bring to life what his words have done for half a century. The stories still haunt as the earth people come into contact with the indigenous beings that live on Mars, and then gradually push them out of the way. The lessons learned on earth, the willingness to sacrifice others to gain what you wantey travel with the space men.I picked this book u [...]

    Because I love Ray Bradbury so much, and because I love this book the best, I thought that this adaptation might be good. It is the authorised version which makes me wonder who else might have done something along these lines. There is something lacking however. Something that didn't translate as well from the written word to this graphic format. I still like it, I think it was well done, I especially liked the artists image of the Martians's just that the dialogue seemed a little chunky and arr [...]

    Dave
    I felt like something was missing for me from this graphic adaptation, and as I was skimming through Bradbury's The Martian Chronicles I figured it out. The chapter There Will Come Soft Rains is missing, which is one of the most powerful chapters and also one that would lend itself very well to a graphic interpretation. Reading this chapter again I can see the house, the clockwork spinning endlessly on, the family's charcoal silhouettes on the siding. All of this could have been done in 6 pages [...]

    Kris
    I first read this book in middle school, and I fell in love with it.While I was disappointed that a few of my favorite stories were not included in this graphic novel adaptation, it was really well done.

    Marian
    I received this book as a giveaway. It was a great adaptation of Ray Bradbury's novel and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I especially loved Bradbury's introduction. Dennis Calero managed to make a great new piece of art while maintaining the integrity and feel of the original. Well done!Although originally written in 1946, the stories are timeless and hold eternal truths about human nature, war and colonialism. I highly recommend this adaptation to all Bradbury fans. If you have never delved into Bra [...]
