Overview

With the full cooperation of the Jordan estate, The Eye of the World has been turned into a stunning comic book series written by Chuck Dixon and illustrated by Chase Conley. The first Robert Jordan graphic novel, New Spring: the Graphic Novel, was a New York Times bestseller.

The Eye of the World: The Graphic Novel, Volume One begins Robert Jordan’s epic fantasy tale by introducing Rand al’Thor and his friends Matrim and Perrin at the spring festival. Moiraine Damodred and Lan Mandragoran appear, and almost before Rand knows it, he and his friends are fleeing his home village with Moiraine, Lan, and Egwene al’Vere, the innkeeper’s 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. As they run for their lives, Moiraine and Lan begin to teach the young people what they need to know to survive in this dangerous world.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

Talk about a film based on The Eye of the World, the first volume in Robert Jordan's masterpiece Wheel of Time epic, has been percolating for years, but there is no need to wait for the graphic novel. Writer Chuck Dixon and artist Chase Conley combine in this vivid visual recreation of this 1990 fantasy classic. (P.S.: This project was completed with the full cooperation of the Jordan estate. Dixon worked closely with Jordan on a previous project.)

From the Publisher
“Brilliant storytelling choices and respectful treatment of Jordan’s world. Conley recreates the rich visual and cultural tapestry of Jordan’s series. He excels in communicating the tone and mood of a scene. The Eye of the World continues to be a series of genuine passion, technical virtuosity, and grand, epic adventure.” —Broken Frontier on The Eye of the World comic book

Meet the Author

Robert  Jordan

ROBERT JORDAN was born in 1948 in Charleston, South Carolina. He taught himself to read when he was four with the incidental aid of a twelve-years-older brother, and was tackling Mark Twain and Jules Verne by five. He is a graduate of The Citadel, the Military College of South Carolina, with a degree in physics. He served two tours in Vietnam with the U.S. Army; among his decorations are the Distinguished Flying Cross with bronze oak leaf cluster, the Bronze Star with "V" and bronze oak leaf cluster, and two Vietnamese Gallantry Crosses with palm. A history buff, he has also written dance and theater criticism and enjoyed the outdoor sports of hunting, fishing, and sailing, and the indoor sports of poker, chess, pool, and pipe collecting.

Robert Jordan began writing in 1977 and went on to write The Wheel of Time®, one of the most important and best selling series in the history of fantasy publishing with over 14 million copies sold in North America, and countless more sold abroad.

Robert Jordan died on September 16, 2007, after a courageous battle with the rare blood disease amyloidosis.

CHUCK DIXON has written for DC, Marvel, and most other major comics publishers. Considered one of the best writers of Batman of the last decade, Dixon worked closely with Robert Jordan on the graphic adaptation of New Spring and with Jordan’s estate on The Eye of the World graphic novel.

CHASE CONLEY is the penciller and inker for The Eye of the World comic book and graphic novel.

    For the last 10 years my best friend has been trying to get me to read The Wheel of Time series and while I do own most of the series I didn't take the plunge until last night when I picked up the graphic novel adaptation after borrowing it on a whim from the library.

    The artwork in this volume was nothing short of fantastic. I loved the style the artists implemented. The colours were dark but they really popped off the pages. The artistry went hand in hand with the story was being told and I felt myself drawn even closer to the story because of them.

    The story itself was great. While I haven't read the actual full length novel version I feel that this was a very good graphic novel adaptation. It was longer than I expected and I there was a lot more text in the story than I would usually find in an adaptation. I liked all the characters a lot and I'm really intrigued by the whole mythology of the story that was told. There was far more detail than I expected and I think that helped make the story all that much more successful.

    I'm not a big high fantasy fan, mostly because I don't have that much reading experience of the genre under my belt but I really see what all the hype around this series is about. There's a lot going on within the pages of this graphic novel and it surprised me by sucking me into the world within the pages so completely. After reading this I am definitely going to be starting the novel version very soon and can't wait to read more of Robert Jordan's work. I also plan to continue reading the series of graphic novels that follow this one.

    I highly recommend this to all Wheel of Time fans by Robert Jordan as well as to people who haven't read the books before, who, like me are curious to see if it's something they like. Plus if you're a lover of graphic novels like I am I suggest giving this one a try also because it's the whole package.

    A product worthy of much more than the cost.  If you like the story, you will love the artwork adapted for it.
