3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Derrick O'Rourke on 4 Mar. 2011
Format: Paperback
This book starts off strong with some great art but fades off in the last 3 chapters. The art gradually goes downhill. It's not really bad art, it's just not up to the standard set by the earlier work by Mike Miller.

The story is a bit ponderous & I imagine trying to read these in single format would've been a nightmare (I'm not just talking about all the release delays). However, the characters are well developed & as a Wheel of Time fan I was delighted to see the characters & different armies come to life. The double spread of Tar Valon is fantastic.

The extra's are good although some of the comments Robert Jordan has to make to Chuck Dixon worry me for the rest of the Wheel of Time adaptations. Chuck wanted to have Aiel on horses. That's just wrong.

Overall, what could've been a brilliant adaptation is just a solid one.

Soft cover, 256 quite glossy pages (all pages are colored), 2 pages introduction by R. Jordan, eight chapters, bonus matterial. Each chapter begins with a black page where is the writen the number of the chapter and has an 8x2 cm image of a snake and a sword, and ends with a full page image. There three artists who have done the artwork, and the final chapters are clearly different from the previous. The artwork is from very good to excellent in my opinion.
In the first pages there are some two-full-page pictures of armies in battle; the artworl is excellent and very detailed, as is in some later pictures so it needs a magnifying glass to fully appreciate it. Some excellent artwork is in the pictures showing characters "hurling fire with their hands".
The background is like a painting in some images, ie without use of pencils, but the characters are always drawn using pencils. There is heavy use of color throughout this book.
There is bonus material, few pages with emails from Robert Jordan commenting on the artwork and the book in general and making suggestions, a 33 pages long illustrated dictionary with 4.5x4.5 cm images besides every entry, and finaly short biographies of Jordan, Chuck Dixon who made the adaptation and the three artists (Mike Miller, Harvey Tolibao and Joseph Cooper).
I havent read any Wheel of Time novels, i bought it because i'm a fan of comic books artwork. I realy liked the artwork very much, especialy the very detailed images, the very good use of colors and pencils. I give this book five stars.
Note for parents: The book has many scenes of violence and some nudity.

Artwork is beautiful, though it does lose its quality somewhat towards the end. I really enjoyed reading it and thought it captured the essence of the book quite well. Some of the spreads are just incredible looking. If you're a fan of the Wheel of the Time, I don't think you could regret this purchase.

By David J on 20 Aug. 2014
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Amazing story as expected from Robert Jordan's work, they really brought the characters to life with excellent graphics and tried to keep as close as they could to the book. That being said these graphic novels were originally published in 8 parts, and there was a gap between the 7th and 8th edition (all of which are present in this graphic novel so the story is complete). The artists were different for the last part which spoilt things for me as the graphics in the last chapter of this novel is nowhere near as good as the rest. The characters are drawn differently (as expected from different artists) but this hindered my enjoyment slightly as the first 7 parts were incredible.
overall - great graphic novel, just let down slightly by the change of artist at the end, worth a look for any WOT fan
