Pretty much feel exactly the same, Trevor.

I agree that some of the dialogue was really good.

This part was funny: Brian the bully overhears Chet trying to decide whether to ask out a girl he likes, and Joe says that Chet has a crush.

Quote
Brian: More like you would crush her if you took her on a date, Morton!
Frank: If she deigned to date you, it would be for an anthropological research project.
Everyone else: Good one! Ha Ha!
Brian: What-ev!
Brian: What's "anthropological"?

I also agree that it ended weird.

The general concept was interesting, though.

I finally got this book, and I liked it.... I'm probably gonna get some more graphic novels now, because my library doeesn't have them up to date :(
"Hey! Don't do that here. You'll mess up my bedspread."
Rolling his eyes, Joe sat on the window sill and started sawing.
"Thank you, Joe."
"You're welcome, Martha Stewart."

It's better to buy them, anyway. If you want the series to last.

Are they worth the money?

I think so. They're better than the UB novels and probably cost more to make.

What's wrong with the UB novels? I like them. ;D

I didn't say there was anything wrong with UB novels (although there is lots wrong with them), I just said the graphic novels were better.

What's one thing that you don't like about them?

They're poorly-written, repetitive, clich?d, anti-continuity, and almost unrecognizable as The Hardy Boys.

Oh, you just wanted one thing that I don't like about them? Ops.

Sorry. Here's one thing:

Frank and Joe don't act like Frank and Joe.

How so? I don't see any difference.

From all that I've heard of the Undercover Brothers, I think it would be fair to at least say that these sets of books present a different vision of Frank and Joe Hardy than all the other series.

Yeah. They sure do.
