Mi primer amor de Reinos Olvidados fue "La piedra de cristal". No fue el primero que leía, pero sí el que más me emocionó. Así que del guion no tengo queja alguna.
Es una buena adaptación, aunque echo de menos al dibujante anterior. Este dibujante es perfecto para bárbaros y gente ruda, pero joder... Drizzt parece Conan de viejo con una patata en la barbilla. Los delicados rasgos de elfo no están conseguidos.

This is a beautifully illustrated graphic novel adaptation of the first of the Drizzt novels, "The Crystal Shard". I found it to be a good refresher prior to starting on the next book in the series.

The artwork seemed to change here. Some pages are wonderful and others look almost rudimentary. Great story as always though. Loved seeing this in graphic novel form.

The fourth volume of the Legend of Drizzt graphic novel series goes back to the prose novel where Drizzt was originally introduced. The barbarian Wulfgar was the lead character of that novel, but here the emphasis has been shifted slightly to focus more on Drizzt, although the story is, so some extent, an ensemble cast.

The lack of female characters (there is one, and she only appears in two minor scenes), was a bit disappointing, particularly after this had not been an issue in other books in th

The Crystal Shard Graphic Novel by R.A. Salvatore brings his original novel to life. I read the original novel as a kid and I wanted to get something that my son could relate to and enjoy while hi is still in the comicbook/ graphic novel phase. The story line follows true and the city of Ten Towns and all of the characters come to life in the illistrations, caracters like Akar Kessell and the demon Errtu.

Once again, Salvatore's original story comes through in the art of a graphic novel. I have no memory of reading this novel in book form, yet I found it delightful as it introduced Wulgar and Aegis-hammer. I will reread the novel versions one day.

Funny how a GN can be made or broken by how closely the characters resemble your headcanon - and this one wasn’t even close, which is kind of a shame.
Patrick Adekunle
Amazing story and great characters. The story just keeps getting better and better.

Recommends it for: fans of Drizzt, fans of fantasy lit and D&D
This series of adaptations of the popular Drizzt series continues to be entertaining. I think the first three so far are still the best, which I wonder if that is the case with the novels as well. As a note of disclosure, I have not read the novels, but I have enjoyed these graphic novels so far. In this particular story, Drizzt has found some sense of peace in the faraway outpost of Icewind Dale. Sure, he is still not trusted by most of the humans there, but he has made a friend or two.

Read it because Chuck liked it when he was a kid and encouraged me to listen to the audio while I was doing yard work. I resisted at first, not sure I'd get into a story about elves, dwarves, barbarians, halflings, wizards, and goblins. But I was wrong. Totally enjoyed Drizzt, Brunor, Wolfgar, Catie-Brie, and even good ol' Rumble Belly Regis. (I'm sure these are spelled horrendously. I only heard the names, so... those are my best phonetic versions). I really liked them and their fantastic world ...more

Shelves: graphic-novels
This graphic novel has a hard job to try to convey the characters and plot of the original novel in 120 pages, and not surprisingly it fails to do this successfully. There just is not enough time to build the character interactions between Bruenor, Wulfgar, Drizzt and Regis. Because of this lack of characterization the important emotional scenes that are included fall flat. Catti-brie is almost completely left out of the book and only has about one line.
I recently read the Homeland adaption and

There's a lot to cram in here from the first book and I give them an A for effort! I'm biased though cause I'm a big fan of Salvatore and these books! The art was good, though a bit rough at times, the cover collection in the back was excellent though and those would make great posters! The story is a bit abbreviated but what can you expect?

J'ai plusieurs des livres de la légende de Drizzt et c'est un personne que j'adore. Par contre, je n'ai pas particulièrement aimé les dessins de ce livre. L'image que j'ai de Drizzt ne correspond pas à celui représenté ici alors j'ai éprouvé de la difficulté à m'identifier au personnage.

Awesome. The did a fantastic job turning my favorite books into graphic novels.
