Maximum Ride to Become a Comic Book Series! And Other News on the Series…

Hello readers!

I apologize for not posting in a couple months, school has kept me busy along with my second novel. I’ll try to be better with posting on here; I haven’t forgotten about you all!

So, just recently I ran across the news that the Maximum Ride series by James Patterson is going to be made into a comic series. The link for more information and an interview with James Patterson on the topic can be read here

How do you feel about the series being made into a comic? I think it’s interesting.  There’s only one sample of artwork on the website but I love the colors! I think I’d be more interested in reading the comics than the Manga, probably because comics tend to have more vivid colors; at least in my opinion and what I’ve personally seen. Of course nothing can beat the original novels themselves! Speaking of…

There are new covers for adult versions of the series (to be on sale 10/28)! I don’t really like how they look, but apparently they’re supposed to draw in an adult audience (as Patterson has stated). There’s only new covers for four of the novels, so perhaps only those are adult oriented? I’m also not sure how much the content has changed (if at all) to please an adult audience. I’ll be interested to check it out, of course. Do you like the covers?

On another fun note…

Patterson is writing another novel for the Maximum Ride series! It’s to take place after “Nevermore.” It’s entitled “Forever” and it’s to be released on 1/19/15. You can read the first chapter for free on BN.com. Hopefully he gets back in touch with his writing styles in the first few novels because, personally, the characters and plot were a lot more enjoyable then. The last book didn’t answer all of my questions and didn’t quite satisfy, so hopefully he ends the series well with this last Max Ride novel. Will you be reading it?

That’s all the news I have for you! Fly on!

  1. Sooooooooo excited! Not sure about the idea of another book though… It’d be nice for it to explain some things that were brushed under the carpet in Nevermore, but I think the series is on it’s last legs

    • I agree. I’ll probably wait to read this last book when it’s cheaper on paperback; also to see the reviews on it. Many questions were still unanswered and I feel as though Patterson has lost touch with the characters and the plot as a whole. I’m still extremely upset that Angel is The Voice. It just doesn’t make any sense to me!

      • no i disagree because the series is great and i would loves for more books and a movie on it and yes i know that there is already a movie on the first book but it only goes to the part were they rescue Angel from the “School” it doesn’t show were they go to New York or anything that happened after saving Angel!
