The Eye of the World: The Graphic Novel, Volume One (Wheel of Time: The Graphic Novel #1) (Paperback)
Now an original series starring Rosamund Pike as Moiraine!
Created with the cooperation of the Jordan estate, adapted by well-known comics writer Chuck Dixon and illustrated by the talented Chase Conley, The Eye of the World: The Graphic Novel has been hailed as an exciting interpretation of Robert Jordan's classic fantasy novel.
The Eye of the World: The Graphic Novel, Volume One begins Robert Jordan's epic tale by introducing Rand al'Thor and his friends Matrim and Perrin at home in Emond's Field, shortly before the spring festival. Moiraine Damodred and Lan Mandragoran appear and almost before Rand knows it, he's fleeing his home village with Moiraine, Lan, his friends, and Egwene al'Vere, the innkeeper's daughter, who wishes to become an Aes Sedai. The conclusion of this volume leaves the travelers on the road to Baerlon, barely ahead of the pursuing Trollocs and Draghkar. But even as they run for their lives, Moiraine and Lan begin to teach the young people what they will need to know to survive in this dangerous world.
