Personally, I think some of our fanart artists would do a better job. (No, I'm not talking about me, I'm talking about cathrel and the likes).

Manga would suit Artemis Fowl better, because it could better reflect the characters personalities. Like Artemis would have a pointy face with long thin eyes, etc.
Manga rules. So does anime. And so does Pocky. What does this tell us?
Japan should make cartoons and chocolate, not bombs and whale shish kabob.

Yeah , manga would delight me more. After looking at the GN, I think Holly and Juliet are OK (OK good), but Arty and Butler are a bit (not a bit , ant head and dinosaur body) strange.

I honestly dont like the character designs for the graphic novel. xP

Mabey its just the guys style or something. But I dont think its that.
He has a really nice style, it just doesnt fit what I imagine they look like though.

I mean Arty, really looks horrible. x_x I think he looks like so out of character.
I imagined him more like I dunno, like that version of him in the graphic novel makes me think of him as some adult with their head glued on a kid. I imagined he would be pretty cute, like a little kid, only with that evil smile and stuff. Heh.

Butler? Gosh I barely recognized him. That doesnt look like how I thought he would. I imagined Butler as cool and mysteriously dark and stuff. Not like.. that guy. THat guy makes me think he is some CIA person or something. X__x Like some military person. Not like how I thought Butler would be.

Holly... ehh. Well Out of all of them, her's is the "lesser of the evils". Atleast it is close to what I imagined her. Only I imagined her a lot prettier then she looks in the graphic novel. ^^; And I thought she would be shorter since umm isnt she shorter? *cant remember* I dont like her face though.. it just looks odd. Her big eyes just are out of place in my opinion. I mean, I like big eyes in anime, but not in other styles most the time. I think it looks a little odd on Holly, I imagined she'd have a more defined face? Like since she's so tough, but still pretty. Yeah. x__x

I'm done rambling. I doubt I will be buying this graphic novel if it's in US.
Honestly, I think it'd be neat to see Artemis Fowl as an anime-ish style.
Just cause thats how I imagined it XD. But I really think it'd be cool. With cute chibis and stuff. Mabey even a bit of realism in it. I dunno. I just dont like that style of the artist doing the graphic novel. It doesnt seem to fit what I thought of the book.

i think that the pic on the front of arty is just a bad pic. i seriously doubt that the other pics inside will be so bad.

i dont mind holly. i did imgaine her to be...different, but its not bad. =I

butler is not what i expected him to be, but hes okay too. i imagined him more like cobra bubbles from lilo and stitch. :) . but thats just my opinion. maybe thats what colfer wanted him to be.

i will be getting the gn. what the heck? :)

Hmmm. Do I like how the characters are drawn in the graphic novel? Ehh, not much. I don't really like how Artemis looks. He resembles a pigeon to me. Hahah. Not sure why. I really do like how Holly looks, though. And Butler looks great! Foaly is alright. I guess the only one I have a problem with is Artemis himself. However, that's probably going to bother me, seeing as he's the main character and all. :]

Holly: a shrub usually containing shiny red berries used to depict joy
Minerva: the Roman name for a God who was born by springing from her father's forehead. I rest my case.

No I don't like them...Butler looks like a monster, Holly an alien, and Artemis...a grapefruit. :? His head is vastly misshapen.

why would you people want them to be MANGA?! i mean, seriously, i can't even tell the GENDER of some manga characters, and it totally restricts the artist's style. i do agree that some of our artists could do better, but please, NOT manga. i've seen some of the manga pics, and while they're cute, they all look EXACTLY THE SAME. and they're wildly disproportionate. Huge eys, small mouth, pointed chin, only about five mouth sizes, elongated arms and legs, and all the characters are mainly told apart by their hair styles. cutesy stories like Fruits Basket, yeah, manga all the way. But ARTEMIS? no. he is vastly too intelligent and dark to be a manga character. =shudder= That goes for Holly and Mulch too. they are too different to have basically the same facial features. you notice how manga artists on this website don't draw him, or other uglier characters? its because manga is the art of the uniform, perfect people. And the wacky, fairy People are too developed and diverse to be degraded into manga successfully. and i shudder to think of what they'd do to Butler. its just not natural.
