    I read the original series about a decade ago and finished up the subsequent releases as they came out. I had heard there was a graphic novel and was sort of hesitant to read them mainly because I was afraid an adaptation wouldn't represent the material properly. Well I got the first graphic novel book, all the way up to the point where Rand and company depart Emond's Field.

    I LOVE THIS!

    I really enjoy the art, especially Mat and Rand. I thought Perrin was simply alright, but it didn't bother me too much. I was in love with the way the artist chose to represent traveling, as well as the graphics illustrating the One Power from Moiraine. I was surprised to see them honor the book so much in the little details. There was a couple of things that were different of course, but nothing that made me rage as a huge fan.

    I'm looking forward to getting the rest of them little by little. What did others think of it?

    I have a couple of seperate issues, when they arrived in Sheinar on their way to the Green Man ^^ It's interesting and I do not hate the art style which is an improvement on the book covers :look

    I really want the New Spring graphic novel too, I've seen screenshots and it looks great :D

    My 13 year old son is a huge fan of these. ^^ He knows the whole WoT story from hearing me explain it to him over the years, and listening to parts of the audio book with me. He's not a great reader so the books intimidate him, but he LOVES the graphic novels. I haven't read them myself but I've glanced at the art and I do really like it!
