SUCH a striking first page. Great drama, and it's just an old man sitting. Very nice work.
Thanks! This is about the fourth re-interpretation of this page, so it is good to know I seem to have hit, finally, on something effective.
This artwork is absolutely beautiful. I can't wait to get into this. Also, what an awesome idea, making a comic adaptation of a book!
Thanks so much! It was a roundabout idea...what I've really wanted, for decades, was a live action film, but that's not happening, and I finally realized a comic was in essence a finished storyboard. So it's the closest I could get - and unlike a Hollywood-ized film, I could have something as close to the source material as possible. :)
Glad to have another reader. Hope you enjoy!
Just found you. Wow fantastic art. And definitely effective.
Thanks and welcome!
Hey! I'm that person you just responded to on YOUTUBE! I am happy you told me about this site. You probably already know this but your hope for years wasn't in vain. Disney is making a live-action remake to the chronicles. I was hoping some other studio would, but better than nothing!
Oh I’m so glad you followed the link! Welcome! And yes, the saga of the potential Disney film is a long-running one! Lol if you read far enough you will see my reaction.
I am trying to keep my expectations low.
Nitpick: this exposition makes it sound like there have been three hundred years of peace, which is clearly not the case. Not that it can't be finagled.
But all that is beside the point, which is: DANG. So much effort put into this page. Just have a care not to be as meticulous with Taran's apprenticeships in Taran Wanderer as you are with this scene of Dallben writing.
BTW, the title page has left me in serious suspense as to what your Gwydion looks like. Can't wait.
Well...note that he does clarify with "as much as men CAN be at peace" which is never very much. The idea is that since the Sons of Don kicked Arawn's booty there has been relative peace. Lloyd's timeline is a little bit vague on how long they've really been there, but this is how I read it.
So glad to have a new reader!
I would love to start reading this with my 8 year old granddaughter. We just finished the graphic novel version of "A Wrinkle in Time". But, I don't want to start it unless you have finished with the book. It looks great!!
I’m afraid you’ll wait a while - it’s taken me several years to get as far as I have! But keep me bookmarked, and I hope you return to enjoy it. The opportunity to introduce the Prydain chronicles to the next generation is one of my favorite things.
Wonderfully cinematic! I love the expansion of the narrative and the inclusion of a second POV, which Alexander only does in Book 5. My sole quibble would be that Prydain has endured several cycles of war and peace in the last 300 years, including a major one about 12-15 years ago, when Taran was born. But that's for us super-fans to nitpick over.
That’s true - but I’ve always imagined that as being a minor skirmish. Dallben does qualify after all - men are never really peaceful. In my mind the sons of Son have kept the country out of full on war, but we know the cantrevs are constantly messing with each other.
Thank you sooooo sooooo much for this! My nieces are reading/listening to this (ages 7 & 5) and the comic is IMMEASURABLY helpful for them to grasp the flow of the story.
Oh I'm so happy to know that! Thank you for the comment!
What was the time
You’re gonna have to give me a little more context for that question.
