While I enjoyed seeing the characters brought to life in this way, and the artwork was well done, I think the story is a bit too complex to lend itself well to this format.

Although I did enjoy the artwork, it could be a little inconsistent. Claire could look totally different from one picture to the next (so could Jamie, for that matter) - I'm still fairly new to the graphic novel, so maybe this is true of other GNs as well, but I found it a little distracting. ( )

Loved it.
Jamie was finally put into his world for me. ( )

Frankly, I can't imagine this book would be of any interest to anyone who hadn't read ate Outlander series. And therein lies the problem...if you've read them, this graphic novel will fall short for you. My biggest problem was the artist's renderings of Claire. Full makeup in 18th century Scotland and more boobs showing than a porn magazine. Love the Outlander series? Skip this. Hate the Outlander series? Skip this. Haven't yet read the series? Skip this.

Read the introduction before you read this. It's IMPORTANT.

Liked this adaptation...this "other chapter" in the Outlander world. ( )

I am not a huge fan of graphic novels, but this one was well made, and the drawings of Jamie and Claire were nicely done, in the beginning of the book at least. Claire's boobs grew on each page, and the drawings became more and more manga-like.

The story was from a different point of view, so some things were new, because Claire and Jamie simply didn't know about them. ( )

Graphic novel which tells a portion of Outlander/Cross-Stitch from Jamie's point of view.
Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

"After too long an absence, Jamie Fraser is coming home to Scotland but not without great trepidation. Though his beloved godfather, Murtagh, promised Jamie's late parents he'd watch over their brash son, making good on that vow will be no easy task. There's already a fat bounty on the young exile's head, courtesy of Captain Black Jack Randall, the sadistic British officer who's crossed paths and swords with Jamie in the past. And in the court of the mighty MacKenzie clan, Jamie is a pawn in the power struggle between his uncles: aging chieftain Colum, who demands his nephew's loyalty or his life, and Dougal, war chieftain of Clan MacKenzie, who'd sooner see Jamie put to the sword than anointed Colum's heir."--Amazon.com.… (more)
