Unwanted by his parents, Cosmo Hill is put to work by the state, testing highly dangerous products. Cosmo realizes he must get away, and escapes with the help of the Supernaturalists, a group of kids who have the same special abilities as Cosmo--they can see supernatural Parasites, creatures that feed on the life force of humans. The Supernaturalists patrol the city at night, hunting the Parasites in hopes of saving what is left of humanity in Satellite City. But soon they find themselves caught in a web far more complicated than they'd imagined, and they discover a horrifying secret that will force them to question everything they believe in.
With stunning art and nonstop thrills, The Supernaturalist: The Graphic Novel will delight fans already familiar with the story and dazzle readers discovering it for the first time.

While escaping from an orphanage where he has been used as a human lab rat, Cosmo Hill falls from a roof and is left for dead by the guard sent to bring him back. Cosmo is saved by the Supernaturalists, a group of teens who are out to destroy Parasites, the invisible beings that feed on the life force of humans. Cosmo finds a home with the group once it’s discovered that he, too, can see the weird blue entities. But the Parasites are not what they appear, and the Supernaturalists are not the only ones hunting them, sending the teens down a path they never expected to take. In this terrific example of an adaptation done right, the text has been pared down to dialogue and a minimum of exposition, leaving the art to describe the setting and action by using clearly laid-out panels and clever two-page spreads. The resulting story moves quickly and tension builds as the plot advances. Don’t be surprised if readers come looking for more, as the ending teases with the possibility of a sequel. Grades 6-9. --Eva Volin
