Overview

With an exciting new Patterson narrative in a graphic novel format, Daniel X continues his quest in a full-color, action-packed adventure!

Long ago, after his parents' brutal murder, Daniel inherited the coveted List of Alien Outlaws and assumed his father's role as Alien Hunter. With his supreme abilities, like being able to shape-shift and conjure up long-dead family members out of thin air, Daniel is ready to take on the scum of the universe.

His next target? Number 7 on the list: grand-master of an interplanetary game of destruction that could result in the eventual take-over of earth. In a journey that takes him through the bowels of Tokyo and into other realms, Daniel ingeniously tracks the insectile mastermind. But when #7 reveals his true and terrifying powers, Daniel must enlist the help of #7's own son before he finds himself at the center of the most high-stakes game yet.

When I first heard about The Dangerous Days of Daniel X I was a little worried that I wouldn't like it since it's about aliens, but I loved it! And I love graphic novels, so I'm really excited about Daniel X: Alien Hunter. It's like everything I love all rolled into one. Graphic novels, Daniel X, and its by James Patterson. The wait is killing me!

I loved this book from the very first page. Very funny and gross at the same time. Very descriptive which makes it gross. Fighting off aliens to save the world...can't get much better. Move over Men in Black.

My son (12 at the time) enjoyed reading this graphic novel. He was through with it in one afternoon/evening - pretty much in one sitting. He really enjoyed the storyline of an alien hunter trying to save the world from bad aliens. He usually reads 'regular' books, but this graphic novel format was a nice change of pace.

It was my favorite book It was one of my favorite books because it has lots of action. In one part Daniel rips the guts and heart out of an alien that is much stronger and more experienced than him. Daniel is an alien hunter and hunts down and kills aliens.

Daniel X was born with the ability to create anything. But when his parents were killed by an alien assassin known as the Prayer. He has to complete his father mysterious quest to hunt down alien outlaws. He is all alone and has no one to take care of him. The Prayer is hot on his trail and is close to stopping him. The faith of earth lies on Daniel¿s shoulders. Will he save the universe from mass destruction read the book and find outI like this book because it¿s an adventure beyond this world. The best part was when the battle between Daniel and Seth. The worst part was when Daniel was shot by number 6. The most exciting part was when Daniel saw the planet he came from. I like how descriptive this book is. I also like the idea of the list of outlaws. If you like book with aliens in it than this is the book for you..

I¿ve been wanting to read the Daniel X books for some time now but haven¿t been able to fit the novels into my current reading schedule. Enter Daniel X the graphic novel and it¿s perfect. I get to sample the books in a quick way to determine if I really want to read them.Sadly, the answer is yes, I really want to read them. Daniel X was fast paced and so full of those various parts that makes a story great. Now I need to find time for the novels.Daniel is a young man on his own. His parents died when he was young, leaving him to learn and follow his destiny alone. Well, sort of alone. Daniel can create things from his imagination ¿ that¿s because Daniel is the son of a legendary Alien Hunter sent to Earth to capture alien fugitives. Daniel has recreated his family and given himself friends but they are only around for periods of time.The story weaves current day with Daniel¿s past but still manages to leave just enough questions to make the reader want more. This is a sad tale and a hopeful one. Daniel is after Number 7 but he lacks information about that particular alien except that he likes to import other weaker aliens to Earth so that they can be hunted. Number 7¿s only weakness comes in the form of his teenage son, Kildare.Kildare and Daniel become friends. The story shifts from the hunt to learning independence. Kildare and Daniel have so much in common. Number 7 has no love for his son but that won¿t save any of them when the battle lines are drawn.Pick this one up. I love James Patterson to begin with. Daniel X promises to remain a great tale.

`The greatest superpower ... is the power to create.¿ (from the cover)Daniel X assumes the role of Alien Hunter after his parents¿ death. Daniel also inherited a list of Aliens Outlaws to fight. The next target is Number 7, chief of the Game Consortium. The objective of this Consortium is to takeover of Earth.Daniel X is a teenager with the ability to shape-shift and eventually defeats the Outlaws. The members of the Game Consortium have the ability to shape-shift and they selfbuild themselves from billion of ants; they also have learnt the chemical abilities of the ants, so they use the scents as a chemical GPS.Apart from the fighting, there are some original ideas:The Pleionids: `These beauties are the Pleionids. Peaceful, beautiful, intelligent flowers. Their culture was based entirely on color. They had over seven thousand different words for the concept - white - . (p. 55) The errors of clonation: `We created the colony you call - Kildare - ... He was supposed to be the ultimate warrior. His intelligence, creativity, problem-solving, were all off the charts. But something went wrong. All he wanted was to read books - to smell flowers. A disgrace !¿ (p. 84)

Daniel X is an alien hunter from another planet. He has powers that most people would consider pretty cool. Daniel can create anything using his mind. The most impressive thing he creates are his best friends. During times when he is the most lonely, he has his best friends appear and join him for talks, meals, and games. Daniel is on a mission. He is after Number 7 on the list of the worst aliens on Earth. Daniel found the list after his parents were killed by the most dangerous alien on earth and took over their alien hunting duties. Number 7 is the Chairman of a corporation called the Game Consortium. The Game Consortium makes its money by organizing brutal urban safaris. It breeds and releases creatures into cities and some of the worst scum in the galaxy pay for the opportunity to hunt and kill the target. Daniel gets more than he bargains for when he takes on the Chairman. He¿ll have to rely on wisdom his father passes down, his friends, and a new and unlikely ally in order to survive.Daniel learns a lot about himself and friendship during his adventure to put a stop to Number 7. James Patterson does a good job of giving a short recap of Daniel¿s background without making it redundant. The illustrations are great and the full-color panels really make the scenes come alive. Reading the first book in the series, THE DANGEROUS DAYS OF DANIEL X, might be helpful to understand the entire background of the Daniel¿s world, but it isn¿t necessary in order to enjoy this graphic novel.

A young adult graphic novel, Daniel X: Alien Hunter is based upon the book series. I haven¿t read the book series, so I¿m not sure if it¿s the same storyline or not. The best part of the graphic novel is the quick moving action scenes and I love graphic novels that keep moving. I would have labeled this book as children¿s graphic novel as it is slightly less complicated than the Artemis Fowl and Percy Jackson series of books. While many things are left unclear and caused confusion in our household upon starting to read the graphic novel¿.he¿s an ¿alien hunter¿ does that mean he¿s an alien who is a hunter, or a hunter of aliens? Actually, both are true. He is an alien who hunts aliens. However, that was unclear in the first few pages when he is fighting humans. Yeah. So if the kids can see past that, they can get enamored with Daniel X¿s cool skills of imagining things and making them happen. That¿s a useful talent to have, so useful you would think that he would never face any trouble that he can¿t get out of by just thinking it, but apparently that doesn¿t work that way and there are more complications thrown at him. The book doesn¿t leave me wanting to run out to read the series of books, though it was entertaining as a quick read. The art work, while not my favorite, wasn¿t bad for the type of sci-fi kids book it was. One of the aliens that is quickly dispatched was perhaps the cutest, most adorable alien ever, and it was a good alien, but there was very little grief over the loss of him, which annoyed me a bit as we lingered on the bad guys more than anything else.

James Patterson¿s hero, Daniel X, is the perfect character to be represented in a graphic novel. The science fiction adventures that Daniel X finds himself ensnared in are perfect for this format of storytelling. One does not have to have read THE DANGEROUS DAYS OF DANIEL X to enjoy or appreciate the eye-catching story depicted in DANIEL X: ALIEN HUNTER.

Daniel isn¿t your typical teenage boy. He¿s an orphan. And, oh yeah, he¿s an alien. His parents were universally (and I mean that literally) famous alien hunters. Number 1 on their list murdered them when Daniel was a small boy. He has followed in their footsteps and won¿t rest until he has done his job and avenged their deaths.

In DANIEL X: ALIEN HUNTER, Daniel faces off against the Game Consortium. The story takes place in the dark corners of Tokyo. Daniel is after who he refers to as Number 7. To complicate matters, Daniel discovers Number 7 has a son, Kildare. Daniel somehow knows that Kildare isn¿t evil like his father. If he can get to know Kildare, maybe he can discover a way to get to Number 7.

But before long, Number 7 is onto Daniel, and Kildare and Daniel are fighting for their lives. Number 7 may be too strong for the two boys to defeat.

Through clever storytelling and brilliant artwork, the story of Daniel X comes alive for the reader. Even if you¿re not a fan of graphic novels, the story pulls you in and captures your attention. DANIEL X: ALIEN HUNTER is a nice addition to the series. It stands on its own accord, but also enhances the first novel by Mr. Patterson & Mr. Ledwidge.
