    "This graphic novel is interesting. I for one loved it. It is grim, unique, and the political background is pretty hilarious. The art of this book is almost off the charts, some might not care for it, but it is something everyone should see. Warren Ellis gives Juan Jose Ryp the perfect voice for this artistic avalanche of color and detail. "

    "I love the graphic novel Ocean because it has a great plotline that seems to be different from other novels. I also like that it has a big enemy of DOOR that is a microsoft type software company (since I feel like big corporations can be the devil). I think the hero Nathan Kane is a human and not like any plain old hero so that makes him interesting."

    "I think it is fair to say that everyone on planet Earth knows who Superman is. I remember growing up how intrigued I was by his superhero character. In The Man of Steel, the relationship between many heroes is brought together in the exploration of those relationships. This comic is one of my favorites because of those relationships. This is one comic you don't want to miss out on. I am glad I decided to get it!"

    "I originally bought this book for my nephew in grade school. He wasn't very taken by the book regardless of how much science fiction is mentioned in the plot. He definitely liked the graphic pictures though the story writing wasn't all that unique, he said it was kind of cheesy. I personally wouldn't recommend this book."

    "There are so many more original ideas when it comes to science fiction/comics. Transformers is something that keeps working off of one original idea and while it continues to be entertaining to read on your spare time it is not something I would call the best in the genre. There are so many other comics I could name off that are more enthralling and entertaining. "

If you haven't seen the movie, you may want to read the book first and then see how closely your imagination compares to the actual movie. "
