    This second volume did not disappoint! It is as beautiful and entertaining as the first. Reading these makes me want to get back into reading the novels. I am so looking forward to reading Vol 3-6 😊

    I took all the Wheel of Time-related graphic novels out from the library and brought them along on vacation. Unfortunately, I didn't realize that The Eye of the World comes in six volumes, and only brought the three my library has. I got to the end of the third pretty certain that a good chunk was missing and, sure enough, I'm only halfway through. Still, I figured I'd better write a review, since I don't know when I'll be able to get my hands on the next three volumes.

Unfortunately, I didn't realize that The Eye of the World comes in six volumes, and only brought the three my library has. I got to the end of the third pretty certain that a good chunk was missing and, sure enough, I'm only halfway through. Still, I figured I'd better write a review, since I don't know when I'll be able to get my hands on the next three volumes. I was quite surprised by how much of the first novel's plot I could remember. The middle books, particularly around where it became obvious that Jordan had completely dropped the reigns of the plot, are a blur, but I had distinct memories of everything covered in the graphic novels. I've found the same thing with A Song of Ice and Fire - where the first book is also quite well plotted, with a much tighter storyline than later books. In both cases, I feel like the authors started off with a very clear idea of a beginning, and then much vaguer notes for the rest of the series. It's a shame. Regarding the graphic novels specifically, I found the text to be much better than what I saw in the New Spring graphic novel. It was much easier to follow what was going on, and I think I would have been able to read it even if I hadn't read the book first. I'm not sure how much of that is a real difference in quality and how much is just because the plot of Eye of the World is so much more action-oriented, relying less on narrative (and therefore more easily exportable to a visual medium), though. The artwork was a little disappointing, though. The images looked messy, for lack of a better word - like coloured sketches. This meant that it was often difficult to tell one character apart from another - particularly in the beginning. Some of that might have been intentional, to show how ordinary the three Ta'veren are at the start of the story, but I don't feel like that came through very well. There were also quite a few consistency issues, particularly with Moiraine's forehead pendant (which changed shape and style frequently from panel to panel). Generally, though, I thought it was fine. It was certainly readable. I'm just scratching me head over who the intended audience might be for these. There isn't really a lot of added value for someone who has already read the novels, and I'm not sure how well someone who hasn't read the novels would be able to follow along with the graphic novel version. It seems a bit superfluous. Or perhaps they are looking for people like me, who are at the end of the novels and want a refresher on the series without having to tackle the doorstopper tomes for a second time.

    The graphic novels do an excellent job of telling the novel's story. Excellent graphics, characterization, plot, and conflicts.

    So, Volume 2 of The Eye of the World is out. I loved it; the artwork was great, and the graphic form makes the novel leap of the page. It was awesome seeing the meeting of some of my favorite characters such as Min and Nyneave. Also the prose and the dialogue are so good - I'm sure they're from the novel itself - that it only reminds me how much better The Wheel of Time is than any other series I've ever read. It just stands apart. As before, my only complaint would be with the pacing... How man So, Volume 2 of The Eye of the World is out.

What about the rest of the series? Is there any hope that they'll ever all be done? I seriously doubt it... It would probably take 20 years for them all to be published... But I'll keep reading as long as they do!

    I enjoyed it! Padan Fain and Ishamael are drawn wonderfully. Nynaeve isn’t particularly beautiful in this version, which I prefer. One of Robert Jordan’s failings (in my opinion) is that almost all of the women who are important to the story are described as beautiful. I have always felt Nynaeve should have been a strong, competent woman whose appearance wasn’t relevant. (I still don’t accept that Lan would have ever loved her, but that’s an argument for another day.)

    It's fun being back in this world, and these graphic novels are an easy way to revisit the story without doing an actual re-read so soon after the fact. The art is pretty good, though the pages are a bit text-heavy, both in terms of dialogue and narration. It's obviously an adaptation, since I have seen much better uses of this medium, but it does a good job for what it's supposed to be, and doesn't pretend otherwise.

    Sat down a burned through this one in an afternoon. As with the first volume, art is inconsistent and characters don't look the same from panel to panel or page to page. Two characters stand out: Moiraine for some reason is actually pretty consistently drawn, and Perrin is probably the least consistently drawn.

Graphic novels don't provide room for that type of development. It's fun to see some of these fantastic creatures and people come to life, but realism doesn't replace a fully fleshed out character. Anyway, I'll finish TEOTW, but I'm not sure I'm compelled to read any more of these adaptations unless I need a refresher on books I haven't read in a while.

    This book was a lot of traveling and sneaking around and running away. I did love all the women in this story, and a dance scene in an inn. The boys all pretty much run together for me. I loved the character design for Min, although the women looked very similar to one another. I also liked the narration lettering, but I also thought this book relied too heavily on narration. The arosts draws hand and hand movements very well.

    I won this book through First Reads. Thanks, Tor and to Goodreads!

Thanks, Tor and to Goodreads! First, some background: I haven't yet read the first volume of the Eye of the World graphic novel, and I have really little familiarity with graphic novels as a medium in general. But I do know Robert Jordan! Since I first started reading the Wheel of Time books about ten years ago (!) they've always had a special place in my heart and I think that they still stand as a very good example of how to write Tolkien-style fantasy without feeling derivative or uninspired. So, in short, this review is based on how well it makes the transition from novel to graphic novel, and whether it works as an adaptation. I'll start with the good: the book is absolutely beautiful. Andie Tong frames his artwork really nicely, and gives each page a good sense of dynamism. The characters themselves are visually brought to life pretty well, with Perrin, Min, and Nynaeve as particular highlights. Moiraine is pretty nice as well. The best part, though, is the coloring. Nicholas Chapuis fills the images with purples and blues and greens and I think that the sudden jumps in colors, from light to shadow, from murky to bright, carries a lot of the weight in bringing Robert Jordan's world to life. I have a couple small criticisms as well: I think the change in medium shortchanges a couple of the characters as they disappear off into the background or seem more one-dimensional than they did in the novel. Mat's characterization is somewhat flattened and Perrin is mostly relegated to the background (though to be fair, this a particularly Rand-heavy part of of the story). I also thought that on occasion - especially near the beginning - the pages were a little bit wordier than necessary, and things would be explained via exposition when they could have been shown visually (this did get quite a bit better as things went along). I also thought that lots of the bad guys who showed up were not given the most imaginative of artistic treatments - a certain fellow who shows up in Rand's dreams about 1/2 of the way through looks almost comically evil, with fire bursting out of his eyes and mouth and all that. Finally, it seems kind of a bummer that the work was so short, clocking in at just over 150 pages. At this rate I'd guess they'll need about five volumes to finish off just The Eye of the World, which seems kind of excessive. Overall, though, they're relatively small complaints: I think it works well as an adaptation and the majority of the time it's absolutely lovely to look at. Definitely worth a look for Wheel of Time fans.

    2.5 The art still has a substantial way before this deserves a 4 or 5. I was pleased to see its quality and consistency to have improved from the first installment. It's still not there though. While the illustrations still leave something to be desired - when compared to even some children's books let alone graphic novels - its lettering was what really disappointed.

The writing, and conveying of the story needs to be tightened up. Yes. But even still, there is a way to do better than the bubbles and letters in this comic. I recently read Neil G.'s The Books of Magic, and comparing the skills of their letterer to this is night and day. Then there is the drop off between drawing and coloring. Looking at some of the original sketches, you can see they were done with skill and a neat style. After colors, they become a little weak, cartoony and sluggish. Inconsistent at times, in particular when you compare the main characters and how they are rendered in close ups, compared to mid-sized cells, and then smaller collage ones. I'd like to see them move away from a dated, photoshop-enabled B Saturday cartoon style. The Wheel of Time series is long. I doubt that my review will go far, but I hope that Tor is dedicated enough to the series to see the entire story is told through this medium. Graphic novels are clearly a good way of showcasing the WoT, but there is no comparison between S. King's Marvel adaptations, Neil G.'s DC stuff, and this. Do you really want to be compared to Rick Riordan and the other middling comic works? Commit and the improvements in quality will pay for themselves in spades!

    I have read this book to review the content in order to purchase the item for our library collection. While I have not read the Wheel of Time series the graphic novel is quite intriguing. Like the first volume some of the graphics work could use a little refining. There seems to be a lot of back and forth between cartoony images and more mature graphic work. Other than that and the obvious bad female forms (big boobs and tiny waists) this series looks as though it would fit into our library.

As far as the storyline goes in some places I also felt like I had missed something. It was as though the storyline skipped ahead somewhere. This would probably not be a problem if I had already read the book. My greatest concern is how the graphic novel version is following the actual book in other words how many graphic novels will it take to cover one book? Our library is small and there is only so much shelf space.

    I have read RJ's The Wheel of Time series from end to end twice, yet somehow the existence of the graphic novels escaped me. Until now. I am a huge fan of Chuck Dixon mainly for his work on Batman and he hasn't disappointed in bringing to life the characters in these novels. I would absolutely recommend anyone who, like me, has read the novels then goes on to read the graphics. It's such a powerful visual reminder of the world you grow to love in the novels.

    I love the artwork in this book. I really do. It's colorful, realistic, bold. It's awesome. The problem? It's so bright, it physically makes your eyes hurt after awhile. Then you add in the fact that the paper is glossy, and so it reflects the light back into your eyes, and it makes it hard to read these. Besides that, You can tell that this derives from a very large, complicated novel. The info feels squeezed sometimes. The story itself is pretty good, and again, the artwork is really pretty.

    The actual cover is different than the one in this image. In fact, Shelfari has pretty much messed up the order of the books by listing New Spring as book 1. Anyway, this volume continues Eye of the World up through the group running towards Shadar Logoth. The art is still great and of course the story is amazing.

    I think the moment I felt truly released from this series was when I had to read four pages of one character explaining to another why she was the one chosen from the village to track him down. This has no bearing on the story whatsoever. Four pages is a lot of comic real estate, and I can only imagine that the book-version is just as needlessly exhaustive. I mean, we are talking about seventeen 1,000 page volumes here. So, that's it. I'm finished. Not particularly interesting, no engaging chara I think the moment I felt truly released from this series was when I had to read four pages of one character explaining to another why she was the one chosen from the village to track him down.

    I am loving these graphic adaptations of the first book in the Wheel of Time series. I've read the original novel many, many times yet I still find this fresh and new, the visuals and languid pace that come with the format change are a joy, to see scenes mostly as I imagined but so much more detailed. Highly recommended if you're a die hard fan.

    Better than the first one because of noticeably superior artwork and the fact that it covers a part of the story where things are actually happening. Still, the translation from novel to comic doesn't work terribly well
