Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“All of the dialogue is straight out of the book. Dixon is able to make the story flow on the page, without making it feel too dry or wordy. 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

“I loved it. I really loved it. This is not just a beautiful visual aid to the story, but a means of being able to enjoy the story in a new way. I eagerly look forward to the next volume.” —Richard Fife on Dragonmount.com

“Dixon and Conley are operating at an extremely high level, making superb storytelling choices not only within the confines of a single issue but when considering the series as a whole.  Dixon’s pacing is impeccable and his narration bang on.  Conley’s astounding, atmospheric artwork only reinforces Dixon’s narrative framework. This series continues to impress with its strong storytelling and respectful treatment of Jordan’s source material. Arguably one of the best comic book adaptations on the shelves today, The Eye of the World is quickly proving itself to be a series of craftsmanship and heart.”—Broken Frontier on The Eye of the World: the Graphic Novel, Volume One

“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 on The Eye of the World comic book

“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.”—ComicCritique on New Spring: the Graphic Novel

VOYA - Jonathan Ryder
In this third installment of Dixon's graphic adaptation of Robert Jordan's The Wheel of Time, a party of adventurers enters the ruined city of Shadar Logoth and is forced by pursuing Trollocs to split up in order to continue their quest. The rest of the story alternates among the separated members of the party as they find their way across the river, reach the city of Whitebridge, and eventually reunite with their companions. Along the journey, the adventurers encounter mysterious omens; a stranger who offers treasure at a very high price; a wild traveler with a mysterious affinity for wolves; strange artifacts from vanished civilizations; traveling folk in search of a song lost millennia ago; and the ever-present threat of Trollocs and their accompanying Myrddraal. This book is a compilation of six previously released comic books in the Wheel of Time graphic adaptation. Being the third installment in a series, this book does not spend time establishing the characters but gives a two-page summary of what happened previously. The artwork is very competent, with noticeable differences in character design between the two illustrators. The book relies heavily on dialogue balloons and lengthy quotations from Jordan's original work; this gives the pages a talkative feel that rarely exploits the strengths of the graphic novel format. The setting and characters should be familiar to fans of the fantasy genre and follow the path worn ages ago by the likes of J. R. R. Tolkien. This book deals with issues of self-discovery, survival, quests, and the consequences of not following directions. Although this book would not be a first choice for the building of a collection, it would nonetheless be an acceptable selection for expanding a well-established graphic novel section. Fantasy fans should find this book engaging and will hopefully be inspired to go and read the original source material. Reviewer: Jonathan Ryder
