    Nicht so stark wie die erste Graphic Novel, aber ebenfalls eine super Ergänzung zum dritten Film. Die Novel enthält drei Geschichten, wobei die letzteren beiden eher Kurzgeschichten enthalten und erklären, was nach dem Eislabyrinth aus der ersten Novel geschehen ist und wie Teresa ins Labyrinth kommt. Die letzte Story erzählt die Geschichte eines Cranks. Aber der eigentliche Kern der Graphic Novel ist Geschichte Nummer 1 und berichtet, was zwischen Maze Runner Teil 2 und 3 geschehen ist.

    This a great read and I’m soooooooooooo happy that there is more then 1 book because I just could not get enough! I hope anyone who has read this feels this way to. It is the perfect next book to the scorch trails and the maze runner. With all the cranks running around, you feel yourself rooting for Thomas even more. (If that is even possible.) also after the death cure there is also the kill order and the fever code which are both amazing!

    I choose this book to read because my brother said it was really interestin and it had A good amount of action. I liked this book because it had a good story line plus it also had quite a bit of horror. My favourite actor was Minho because he was very good at fighter and he was also a good friend to most people. I learnt that Don't always trust people that say there good.

    Not as good as The Scorch Trials Graphic Novel Prelude. Well, actually that's not entirely true, it serves its purpose just as much, but I guess there was just less to fill in between movies 2&3 (please note that, although this is supposed to be a "prelude to", I read this after watching the last movie), than there was before movie 2, so I didn't have the same feeling of fulfillment that the other gave me.

Well, actually that's not entirely true, it serves its purpose just as much, but I guess there was just less to fill in between movies 2&3 (please note that, although this is supposed to be a "prelude to", I read this after watching the last movie), than there was before movie 2, so I didn't have the same feeling of fulfillment that the other gave me. But this bit from Dashner's intro still rings very true. It honestly and truly brings tears to my eyes, quite often, when I think of what The Maze Runner world has become, and how much all of you mean to me. We are like a family, and these characters are our brothers and sisters. No one can ever tell me that they aren't real. I hope you feel the same. And what a gift that we can spend a little more time with them within these pages. Also, there are less stories in this one, which is basically one long(er) story that does the filling between movies 2&3, and then two very short stories, among which the second one didn't bring much in my opinion (actually, both those short stories would have fit better in the previous graphic novel). MAZE RUNNER: THE DEATH CURE OFFICIAL GRAPHIC NOVEL PRELUDE Or well, at least, I guess that's the title for the one long story? Where do I start? There's just so much put altogether in this one. (view spoiler)[First: Gally! The three first pages were so good already! This "I'm sorry." from him to Chuck was just perfect to show that despite what he did in the first book/movie, deep down, Gally's a good guy. He never wanted any of this. And this is just the kind of things that I like about my gladers. The rest of the story dedicated to him is good to show how he ended up where he was in the last movie (which is roughly skipped over in it, with just him mentioning that he got found and patched up). (hide spoiler)] Then most of that story is dedicated to showing what Thomas and the gang were up to during the roughly 6 months hole there is between movies 2&3. To be quite honest, not all of it was really necessary to the story, I guess. ((view spoiler)[Wait, actually, nope sorry. There's one way in which it was useful: to show the evolution in Thomas & Brenda's relationship. Among other things, it kinda gave more context to Brenda's remark in the last movie about how Thomas can't give up on anyone, not even one person. (hide spoiler)] ) But I like that they stayed true to each character's personality developed through both books and movies. Especially Newt's snarky remarks, which are everything to me. (Allow me to mention this here: now that I'm reading again the first book, I realized that Thomas Brodie-Sangster is pretty much nothing like the description given in the first book, and yet, he's just so perfect for the character somehow. I mean, physical description aside, his portrayal is on point.) (view spoiler)[Thomas: You don't think it was my fault? Newt: No, I just want you to stop using passive voice. It was very much your fault. (hide spoiler)] The art is... okay, as in: the characters quite resemble the actors portraying them, or at least enough for us to know who's who (except for Gally imo). However, I love the choices of colors for each subpart of the story, and I'm totally in awe with the double-page panel showing the last maze though. It lacks details and neatness for me, but it still looks really great! And the very last panel showing Thomas's face, which looks very much like Dylan O'Brien, as if the artist put all his might into that one panel. "THE ZEALOT" I'm gonna be honest, the one (main) reason I enjoyed this one is because I've always wanted to see/read more about Thomas/Teresa's work before they entered the maze. (And I still want more about them working with Aris and... who was supposed to be the other girl working with them again in the books? I forgot. But I guess I'm not getting this, so I'm taking what they're giving us.) "A FATHER OF THREE" I'm not entirely sure where this fits into the whole thing. Well, like I mention at the beginning of this review, it doesn't bring much imo. Or rather, I feel like this would have needed a couple more pages to give it more substance. Okay, now wrapping it up... Overall, it's another nice addition to the whole world of the Maze Runner. And while I'm not putting the same emphasis on it as I did for the Scorch Trials one, I'd still recommend to any fan of the series to read this. Oh, and before I forget, while I was reading, I realized that there's one thing I didn't mention about the previous one: I read this as part of the movies, so I have no idea where it stands on its own. Probably very confusing if you're not familiar with the movies, so I guess it's not something you pick up at random. Ah, also. There's one thing I'm disappointed in when it comes to this book. That it doesn't have the same... how do you call it- glossy finish(?) for the cover. Because of that, it feels cheaper than the other one (and also, will have more chances of getting damaged or stained).

    Looooove how this filled in the blank between the second and third movies especially since they didn't follow book-canon so this was a really fun read!

They’re actually well done and art are great as well but slightly confusing and issue between original books and adaptation films in very different way so it is what it is whether it’s good or not bad, but little off. James Dashner’s Introduction is Great that explain that we can created our own imagination for world-building so that’s nice message, and accept his work to a Film and he’s very grateful. Back to the 3 Stories I discussed. The Death Cure Prelude- Alright, this was actually very well done that Focus 2 Stories In One. 1st is Gally who wound survived and journey with a 2 guys who take him to Lawrence. 2nd Stories is Thomas and rest of gang break down place and find a whereabout of Kids Including Minho Who Been taken by WCKD. This really great choice before the event of 3rd Film. Well Done! Oh, this One Error, does Aris got taken from WCKD instead of Base Camp with Others? The Zealot- This Focus on Teresa who had a choice to do a mission for Thomas during the Corruption of Battle Between WCKD And The Right Arm For Risk the lives of Kids. This is really excellent story by, Again, Director Wes Ball And Filmscreenwriter T.S. nowlin in the middle of 1st Film. The Art is 👍🏽 A Father of Three- Much Like Stand-Alone Very Short Story Focus on a Family Man Who turn into Crank and narrative how he lost his wife and kids during the World been spread by The Flare. Man, this is a very sad and horror, but great with thought-provoking. Well, this was last before the end of the Film Completed as Trilogy, But there’s 5 actually books and only there’s 2 Prequel left to adapt a film or not. I did enjoy it, and again, should’ve made 5 Novel into graphic novel, it would be good to see the page like a movie. And let’s not forget, WCKD is good!

I get that Thomas was mad at Teresa, but he seemed to absolutely hate her which to me felt a little “unrealistic”. Thomas refused to hear her out. Any time she would say something he agreed with he was convinced that she was lying. I cannot speak for others, but in my opinion the characters were lacking somehow.

Thomas and Teresa’s life before the maze was never given much detail even though Teresa supposedly had her memories back. Not having much detail about the characters (especially the “side” characters) kept me from being able to connect to the characters as some books allow readers to do. Aside from this, the book was good and really makes the reader ask themself if seemingly horrible deeds are maybe not so bad if done with the right intentions and outcome in the long run.

    The art isn't quite good enough for me to remember characters I haven't seen in a while. Once they're named, I recognize them, but without the name or with less prominent characters, it's hard to tell. I feel like nothing really happens, actually. Basically the Right Hand travels more, confronts WCKD at a couple places, and continues to hunt for Minho and the others that were taken. But they don't really come by any answers, which would of course happen during the movie. Guess I'll have to wait The art isn't quite good enough for me to remember characters I haven't seen in a while.

    The introduction by James Dashner at the beginning was lovely ❤️ This was a great prelude for the death cure film- I'm seeing the movie in less than 24 hours and after that it's all going to be over! 😭💔

    Nah I got bored reading this comic and decided to skip pages that's a sign to me I've not an interest in continuing especially when the art is more distracting than the actual story. Avoid if you're looking for a back story this is not it!
