When I started the Terry Pratchett Challenge, a couple of friends had warned me that his first couple Disc World books, while clever, were a little disjointed. However, I felt I needed some kind of grounding in Pratchett's world-building before jumping into the others in the series.

I think the graphic version of Colour of Magic and Light Fantastic did that for me. It established the make-up of Disc World and gave me the basic plot, as well as giving me a taste of Pratchett's cleverness.

The trouble is that it may be like seeing the movie before reading the book--my mental images are now influenced by the artist's interpretation.
