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.

I was quite surprised by h

The Eye of the World comic has finally reached the halfway point of the book after 3 compilation graphic novels. It's very cool to relive the story of the Wheel of Time visually in this way, and it seems to follow it very faithfully. The only reason I only give it 4 stars is that I don't like the art style of the book. At times it seems too cartoonish, and it definitely doesn't have the level of detail and depth that I would prefer, and see in other works. I wish they would give other artists a

Inconsistent artwork but still, I love seeing the story told visually. I just wish it wasn't taking so long. They just left Whitebridge at the end. Sigh. I guess it IS a good thing that they are not leaving anything important out of the adaptation.

Perhaps it was the art, but something about this edition just didn't seem to connect with me as well as the 1st and 2nd editions. Still, if you're a fan, you'll want to pick this up.

Starting to dip in quality. Probably the last volume I intend to read.

Excellent story. Because different artists illustrate the books, I sometimes am taken aback by the different renditions of the characters.

Book Review by: Sharon Powers.

I finished reading Robert Jordan's The Eye of the World on May 28, 2010--just over four years, ago. In the months that followed reading The Eye of the World, I read all the (then available) books in the series. I, like so many others, had fallen in love with the characters in the series of The Wheel of Time.

And then, the graphic novels appeared, of course, beginning at the beginning, New Spring. And then, The Eye of the World: The Wheel of Time, The Graphic Novel. I

Not that they care, but I warned the publisher that if they produced another installment with inconsistent (and generally terrible) art and didn't take the time to put together a quality comic they'd be seeing 1s. Well, here is another 1.

Robert Jordan is a genius, and his world building capabilities are near peerless. He absolutely deserves to be put into the same bucket at Tolkien, and I find it a bit offensive that Tor would jam out subpar graphic novels of the Wheel of Time. If they did a goo

Different artist; not as good.
This third volume in the graphic novel adaptation of The Eye of the World begins with the group's entrance into the fallen city of Shadar Logoth and ends with their separation after fleeing the city--Perrin and Egwene across the river and into the company of Elyas; Rand, Mat, and Thom meanwhile hitching a ride on a river boat.

Although one could say that a lot happens in this installment, I actually felt like the pacing fell dramatically away and I didn't breeze through this one so easily. Someth

The story is just as good as ever, but the art is what bugs me in this one. It's not bad per se. It's just very noticeably different from the previous two books. Worse, it's not very consistent. An example, in the first chapter Moraine's blue stone she wears on her forehead keeps changing style very visibly. It's annoying as heck. I understand different artists are going to have different interpretations of the characters, but I wish they would stick with 1 basic character design. Also, not to v ...more

The pace continues to be maintained and the taveran are now well and truly on the run. The graphics have not improved though the novel continues to grab the essence of the original books quite nicely. Tower of Genjhi makes an appearance and now its even more amazing that Jordan had the foresight to add it this early in his journey. Onwards!

Still loving these graphic adaptations of the first Wheel of Time book. I didn't like the art as much as the first two, it seemed a little overly-stylistic, something that might feel dated sooner rather than later. Though it was still gorgeous. We see Aridhol, Mordeth, Elyas, Bayle Doman, the Tinkers and Whitebridge.

These books are so beautiful. Sometimes painfully so. The artwork is vibrant and colorful. The characters are slowly rounding out. The story is unfolding, and the stakes are getting higher. We meet a new character, whom I really like. So, all in all, this book is just a beautiful book, with a pretty good story line.

Another great instalment of the Wheel of Time series in graphic novel form. As mentioned in the previous reviews for the graphic novels, what i enjoy most is reading the story with illustrations. After reading the series in novel form, it is an interesting way to re read.

Slightly better than the first two. Still feels like bashing my head against a wall. Still, and who knows why, feel the need to finish.

Still doing an adequate job adapting a story not well suited to comic book adaptation, but the artwork in this volume goes from acceptably bad to actually awful.

As always, this adaptation is wonderful. It's incredibly true to the source material without having too much exposition. The artwork is good, and of course I already loved the story!

A continuation of Volumes 1 and 2. If you've read and enjoyed the first two you will probably continue to enjoy this series.

I am really enjoying the graphic novel versions and am enjoying reading bits and pieces to my kids. The books themselves ran on and on and these are a nice quick entertaining read.
Solid adaptation. Inconsistent artwork, some of which is borderline bad.

I am quite enjoying the visual representation of one of my favorite series of books, though I am getting frustrated that they keep changing artist.

If you are going to have three different people illustrating a graphic novel you should make sure they can draw the characters so they look the same in each novel.
