This is a really cute series with entertaining graphics and with good messages about friendship and about choosing to do the right thing even if it's not what other people say is "your destiny". Ultimately, each individual is in charge of figuring out what his or her own destiny is. In this one, Ham Helsing and his crew end up at a summer camp where the counselors have disappeared and a monster lurks in the waters. I am not normally a graphics novel reader, so there were moments when I just wasn't quite sure what was happening in the story and it felt kind of jumpy/frenetic to me because it seemed that a panel came out of nowhere. Those who regularly read graphic novels may not have that same experience. That said, I enjoyed the story and the graphics and I think Ham Helsing is the cutest. I'm so glad this story came across my radar, which motivated me to find and read the first book before reading this one. While one could technically read these out of order, it helps to know who the characters are, so I'd say read it in the right order to get the full effect.
