The graphic novel version of Wool comes across as if it were trying to copy the style of the Snowpiercer graphic novels. The pencil art manages to convey the depressed and mysterious atmosphere of the books well enough. The coloring was well done, though it relies heavily on the blue/orange color scheme that so many action movies and television shows now adhere to. Sadly,the overall story doesn't do the original book justice. The pacing of the comic is uneven, in contrast to the faster pace of the book. As other reviewers have mentioned, the ending was also changed and is much less satisfying than the book's ending. If you are a diehard Wool series fan and can't get enough of the Silo's, you might enjoy this more than someone who isn't familiar with Hugh Howey's trilogy.

If there was list of novels least likely to be a graphic novel, Wool would probably be near the top. Almost completely internal dialog, it translates poorly to the graphic novel format. Even worse, the ending of the novel is changed, pointlessly.
