Editorial Reviews

Review

“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

About the Author

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.

I must preface this by admitting that I am a Wheel of Time collector: Hardcovers, paperbacks, British editions, young adult editions, you name it. I even thought that The World of the Wheel of Time was great, despite the horrific character artwork. So for me to give this five stars might not be as weighty as a New York Times Book Review, but I will at least explain in my attempt to help guide people in whether or not they should spend their $ for this.

If you're not a Wheel of Time fan, you should pick up the "regular" book first (that would be The Eye of the World). It's not that you'd be lost if you read this -- the story is pretty easy to pick up (the graphic novel covers the first 147 pages of the paperback, plus the prologue and also the "Ravens" prologue seen in the YA edition). It's just that I don't think it would mean as much.

To fans of WOT -- which is probably most of you -- I would say grab it, with one caveat. The characters and places will often not look as they do in your head, possibly to your lessened enjoyment. But how can they? People even disagreed with Robert Jordan on how to pronounce some character names, so how can we agree on how Rand al'Thor is supposed to look? But that's where I got some of my enjoyment. Even though I've still never seen a satisfactory Trolloc, it's worth it to see other people's interpretations of RJ's work, even if it might disagree with mine.

Having said that, what about specifics? Following the basic character descriptions in the books, they get them right. They have their basic traits; of course, if they were going to do this project at all, they had *better*. Rand is tall and has red hair, Nynaeve has her braid, and Moiraine wears blue (although sometimes I have trouble telling Mat and Perrin apart).

First off, I wish to say that I love the Wheel of Time, that said, there are a few things that I liked and disliked about this graphic novel.

Likes:
I found that the storytelling in this Eye of the World Volume 1 was far superior to that of the New Spring graphic novel. In this volume, someone with little prior knowledge of the series could figure out what was happening (which was not possible with New Spring).
I also liked some of the artwork for certain character. For instance, I found that Egwene, Mat, Lan, Moiraine and Nynaeve had really nice character designs designs (but I found their noses changed on different pages).
I thought that many of the scenes had some excellent forms of mood. For instance, I found the death of Lews Therin was Adequately disturbing and cool, Rand's trudge through the forest was adequately melancholy, and the tale of Moiraine to the townspeople was well done.

Dislikes:
I found that the artwork for several characters was slightly disturbing and inaccurate. Many of the older people in the story looked like homeless people, with gaps in their teeth and wrinkles a mile long. I felt that the way they showed Thom when he was first seen was terrible, because he looked old and frail. I also feel that many of the pictures of Padan Fein looked more like I imagined him after he was mad then before.
This is another thing I do not like about the artwork, I found that the scenes where saidar or saidin was present were sorely lacking. Gone are the cool pictures where each of the five elements was visible, now its just that they are using the true source (but I did like how traveling was portrayed)

Overall, I liked this graphic novel, yet I felt that there were several inconsistencies in the artwork (which I did not mention) and some sub-par artwork that detract from the experience

I was so glad when all the details and conflicts had been settled between Tor and the producers of the comics based on the Wheel of Time series. Being a big fan of the series, I had been trying to find the comics as they came out, but only ended up with the first three. After that, all went silent for years.

When I found out that Dynamite Entertainment had picked up the contract from the Abel brothers, I was excited to see what they had put together. The artwork is consistently good. However, the details are not as vivid as the first few chapters of A New Spring. Each character is easy to distinguish from the others - which is very helpful considering the 1,000s of characters that are part of this story. Overall the artwork is high level comic book.

The writing is very well done. It stays very consistent to the original books. I haven't read the original in over 10 years, so this graphic novel version was a great refresher course. It reminded me on several occassions of things I had forgotten.

Overall - I recommend this to all of Robert Jordan's fans. This is an excellent way to read this story in a new light.

One of my great frustrations is that it was "Game of Thrones" that a team of producers decided to bring to TV and not Robert Jordan's "The Wheel of Time." I've been hooked on Jordan's series since high school and, for me, the greatest appeal to it are the many strong female characters. The women in Jordan's series are, more often than not, well-respected leaders. They are not submissive.

But because we have yet to see "The Wheel of Time" in either TV or movie form, we have to settle for the new graphic novel version to see if all the things we imagined while reading the books were all the things everyone else saw as well.
This first part of "The Eye of the World" covers Rand and Tam's journey to Emond's Field, the introduction of the big players, the attack on the farm and ends with Rand's decision to leave home.

Overall, this graphic novel works as a simple visualization of the novel. The artwork is a bit juvenile. Matt, Rand and Perrin seem under drawn while others like Thom and Cenn Buie are shown with every crag on their gnarly faces. The dialogue matches the original novel closely, but I felt the inclusion of narration to some of the action scenes was unnecessary. Let the pictures speak for themselves.

I don't feel I wasted my money here, but I do wish that the artist had taken more risks.
