Editorial Reviews

VOYA - Geri Diorio
The Wheel of Time series is a sprawling sequence of books filled with rich descriptions of magic, politics, power, and war, begun by Robert Jordan more than twenty years ago. It tells the story of Rand al'Thor, a young shepherd who may be the most powerful magician in the world. This graphic novel adaptation is more than simply written with Jordan's style in mind; entire descriptive passages and chunks of dialog are lifted straight from the source novel. Chuck Dixon works as a skilled editor, taking careful selections of Jordan's prose and combining them with Andie Tong's art. The art is terrific, capturing small details in character's faces and hands. Unfortunately, the computerized coloring is less nuanced and blurs over some of Tong's wonderful work. This is not a stand-alone book; despite opening with a brief description of "what came before," the tale begins mid-action with the characters on horseback, galloping down a road with a supernatural monster in pursuit. Readers coming to this without knowing Jordan's books or having read volume one will be at a distinct loss. Fans of the series will enjoy seeing the characters and monsters fleshed out, as well as the cinematic depictions of magic. The back matter in this graphic novel includes a small biography of Jordan, along with a cover-art gallery that shows Tong's art in all its black-and-white glory. Illus. by Andie Tong. Reviewer: Geri Diorio
From the Publisher
For The Eye of the World: The Graphic Novel, Volume One  

“All of the dialogue is straight out of the book. 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  

The Eye of the World continues to be a series of genuine passion, technical virtuosity, and grand, epic adventure.”

—Broken Frontier

“The series should provide fans of the novels with an enjoyable take on an old favorite and possibly introduce new readers to this fantasy classic.”

—The Jersey Journal

"The story feels like it was intended for the comic-book medium. That is probably in no small way due to Chuck Dixon’s hand in this.  I hope there are more such top-flight comic-book adaptations of popular fantasy series in the offing.”
