I had already read the novel going into this, so my review will focus on the illustrations. 
The illustrations for me are hard to get excited about sometimes. Some of it was so so cool, like the ghost children scene, but I was hoping for a very faithful adaptation of the visuals described in the novel and I don’t think it 100% delivered. (Although it probably would have been too scary for children if it was completely faithful.) 
I think overall it was hard for me to enjoy the visuals of this graphic novel because the movie is just SO vibrant and unique and creative and meticulously beautiful.

Overall I had a nice time looking at another take on one of my favorite stories/fictional worlds.
