When the supernatural world spins out of control, when the police can't handle what goes bump in the night, when monsters come screaming out of nightmares and into the mean streets, there's just one man to call: Harry Dresden, the only professional wizard in the Chicago phone book. A police consultant and private investigator, Dresden has to walk the dangerous line between the world of night and the light of day.

Now Harry Dresden is investigating a brutal mauling at the Lincoln Park Zoo that has left a security guard dead and many questions unanswered. As an investigator of the supernatural, he senses that there's more to this case than a simple animal attack, and as Dresden searches for clues to figure out who is really behind the crime, he finds himself next on the victim list, and being hunted by creatures that won't leave much more than a stain if they catch him.

Written exclusively for comics by Jim Butcher, The Dresden Files: Welcome to the Jungle is a brand-new story that's sure to enchant readers with a blend of gripping mystery and fantastic adventure.

I am reusing my review from The Dresden Files: The Ghoul Goblin, because the graphic novels have thus proven so interchangeable that I was a third of the way through 'Welcome to the Jungle' before realizing I had read it previously a few years ago. So here is my recycled review for your pleasure:

There is nothing notably great about this Dresden File Graphic Novel. The art is functional, but depressingly generic and the underlying construction of the art doesn't hold up to close scrutiny. The plot is the same way, it does the job and gets the read from point A to point B like a water skier (it stays above water as long as you don't stop moving and don't look down).

That said, there is nothing wrong with it per say. I wouldn't buy this book , but I am happy to read it after borrowing it from my local library.
