Synopses & Reviews
Created with the cooperation of the Jordan estate, adapted by well-known comics writer Chuck Dixon and illustrated by the talented Chase Conley, The Eye of the World: The Graphic Novel has been hailed as an exciting interpretation of Robert Jordan's classic fantasy novel.
The Eye of the World: The Graphic Novel, Volume One begins Robert Jordans epic tale by introducing Rand alThor and his friends Matrim and Perrin at home in Emond's Field, shortly before the spring festival. Moiraine Damodred and Lan Mandragoran appear and almost before Rand knows it, hes fleeing his home village with Moiraine, Lan, his friends, and Egwene alVere, the innkeepers daughter, who wishes to become an Aes Sedai. The conclusion of this volume leaves the travelers on the road to Baerlon, barely ahead of the pursuing Trollocs and Draghkar. But even as they run for their lives, Moiraine and Lan begin to teach the young people what they will need to know to survive in this dangerous world.
The Eye of the World: The Graphic Novel, Volume One contains the first eight issues of The Wheel of Time comic book published by Dynamite Entertainment.
“All of the dialogue is straight out of the book. Dixon is able to make the story flow on the page....All the characters look like how I might imagine them. Fans of the books will be reminded of the things they enjoyed about the series in the first place.”
—Geeks of Doom on The Eye of the World comic book
