The Last Dragon book. Jane Yolen writes a passable story about a killer dragon that a village finds a way to deal with in a very different and unique way. Ilu eh. Rebecca Guay brings life and magic to this graphic novel about a feudal village whose belief that all the dragons are gone turns out not to be 100% accurate. Also there is a magically-beautiful young man who turns out not to be evil, but noble and self-sacrificing, which more magically-beautiful young men should be as a rule.

So when I tell you that I had a suspicion that The Last Dragon was based on something, I mean exactly that: a suspicion . The book itself just said that it was a graphic novel, written by Jane Yolen and painted by Rebecca Guay.

Reviews about The Last Dragon (7):
Owomed
Centuries ago, humans drove the last of the dragons from islands and took them as their own and built their homes and villages on the islands. Now, the last of the dragons, lost as an egg for two hundred years, has been born and it's up the the village healer's daughter and a would-be hero to devise a way to dispose of the dragon before it destroys the village.

I'm not going to lie. I felt bad for the dragon. It was only living it's life, doing what dragons do, eating the livestock and occasional villager, just making its lonely way on the island, and the villagers decide that it needs to be killed. Humans can be so pushy sometimes.

All kidding aside, the story is actually quite lyrical and Rebecca Guay's art is gorgeous. I don't think story would stand up nearly as well on its own if it wasn't for the art. This is neither a long nor challenging read, so I'd recommend it with 4 stars, if not for just the art alone.

Many reviewers here have celebrated the artwork in this book, but I disagree somewhat with all the high praise. The art early in the book is finely detailed with nuanced color. In these pages the book is gorgeous to look at. Somewhat later, though, the quality noticeably falls off as the line work gets thicker and the backgrounds more bare. At several points the faces look rushed, with eyes misaligned at times, and figures look more sketched than finished. The problem is that this decline in detail and consistency comes at those moments when the story needs the most help from dramatic artwork.

I gave this three stars ONLY for Rebecca Guay's artwork.
Absolutely gorgeous.

The storytelling was horrible.
The dialogue was stilted and there was NO flow from panel to panel.
I was very disappointed because Jane Yolen is a good novelist....

I'm keeping it because of the art, and nothing else.
Swiang
Fantastic art. Wonderful addition to my collection.
Haralem
Such a beautiful book
Malodor
This turned out to be something that I have really enjoyed and know others would like it just as I have.
This trade/graphic novel is one that I'll read more than once. It will be staying in my collection always.
Thorgaginn
Item is clear and great. Story is dependent on who warrants what kind of narrative but images look clear and the book is big for nice full pictures.
As a fan of dragons, I was disappointed there was no reprieve for the last dragon. Easy to read story in graphic format which fit the storytelling.
