Overview

New Spring: the Graphic Novel by Robert Jordan, Chuck Dixon, Mike Miller, Harvey Tolibao

In the last few years before his death, Robert Jordan worked closely with Chuck Dixon and Mike Miller on the graphic adaptation of New Spring.

The eight full-color issues of New Spring, released between 2005 and 2010, tell the story of the search for the infant Dragon Reborn and of the adventures of Moiraine Damodred, a young Aes Sedai, and Lan Mandragoran, the uncrowned king of a long-dead nation. Adapted by noted comics writer Chuck Dixon with the full cooperation of Robert Jordan, and illustrated by artists Mike Miller and Harvey Tolibao, New Spring will delight any of Robert Jordan's millions of readers.

Tor is proud to collect all eight issues of New Spring in a single volume, which will also include developmental art, script pages, and correspondence between Jordan and Dixon.

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.

My husband subscribed to the individual comics of this when they were first announced back in 2005 and over the last 5 years they have arrived spurraticly and I am missing a few - I'm glad to see them all being released in a Graphic Novel. The art in these have been spectacular. I love how the artist envisioned each of the characters. I loved reading the novel when it was release several years ago, but there is something about SEEING the characters you have grown to love drawn out on paper. The story of Moraine's journey to find the Dragon Reborn and how she met up with Lan is a favorite of mine.
