Graphic Novel Tuesday! W*n Robert Jordan & Girl Genius Omnibus

First, a commercial…Susannah Sandlin continues her REDEMPTION blog tour today over at MIDTOWN UNDERGROUND, talking about creating a new vampire world. Sort of Vampire 2.0. You also have another chance to enter for the $50 Amazon gift card and other prizes. She’s also doing a Q&A over at J.T. Geissinger’s blog today, so head over and say hello if you get a chance!

Now, how about something different? I think this is the first time I’ve featured any graphic novels here at Preternatura, but I have a couple of really cool ones to give away, so read on to find out more about them!
First up, we have THE EYE OF THE WORLD, volume two of the graphic novel from Robert Jordan’s epic fantasy series. This volume is scripted by Chuck Dixon and illustrated by Andie Tong with the cooperation of the Jordan estate. In it, Rand al’Thor, Egwene al’Vere and their friends flee their home village in the company of Moiraine and her Warder, Lan Mandragoran. Pursued by their enemies, the group seeks sanctuary in Baerlon. Rand’s nightmares grow darker. Moiraine takes Egwene under her wing. Lan warns them to trust no one, but should that distrust extend to Lan and Moiraine as well? This volume collects six issues of the comic book published by Dynamite Entertainment, along with bonus material.
GIRL GENIUS Omnibus, Volume 1, by Phil and Kaja Foglio brings a collection of this Hugo Award-winning webcomic. The Industrial Revolution has become all-out war as mad scientists, gifted with the Spark, unleash their insane inventioins on an unprepared Europe. For centuries, the Heterodyne family kept the peace, but the last Heterodyne disappeared twenty years ago. Now, their former ally Baron Wulfenbach tries to maintain order throughout a continent that despises and fears him. Previous editions of GIRL GENIUS have been available as self-published books, but this is the first time that the first three chapters of the story have been collected in a hardcover edition, fully recolored and relettered.
These are both beautiful books, and I’m happy to pass them your way! Do you like graphic novels? What do you like about them? Or is this a new type of reading for you?

  2. Oh, count me in! I adore Girl Genius and loved the Wheel of Time series. I’m a big fan of web comics (even if I don’t have time to read them as much as I used to) and have always enjoyed the way the different medium allows writers to express different aspects of their work that just don’t come across in written form.

  3. I have just a few graphic novels, but I love the artistry of them. They have to tell the same story as a book using fewer words and overarching pictures to convey the same amount of information–comparing the graphic novelization of a book to its source material is always so interesting to see how they make it work and sometimes even improve upon it!

  4. Lovely! 🙂 although I do not like this trend of calling all comics graphic novels…sounds a bit too much like they are trying to gentrify the neighbourhood by force;)

  5. Ooo what an awesome give away Suzanne! Thank you for the chance to win them. I love the Wheel of Time series, so I am very curious what they have done with it as a graphic novel. And a girl genius, what is not to like?
