The first-ever graphic novel set in the world of Shannara
on 3 April 2008
I am not quite sure how to start this review. This is a graphic novel told using pictures like a comic story book. Ok if you like this sort of thing. The illustrations are excellent but the story is lacking something probably because the Shannara books are so indepth and this seems to start in the middle of the story and doesn't seem to quite work as another Shannara story. I would describe this as a short story it only took me about 1 hour to read. There are some interesting bits at the end of the book about how the book came about and was made and some of the early artist's sketches. Worth reading if you are a big Shannara fan and wonder what the characters like Allanon look like in graphic pictures. Should be read after The Wishsong of Shannara.
