As a long time fan of Tolkien since I was a child having even been a TA in a college level Tolkien studies class I m always interested in how Tolkien is adapted When I saw this graphic novel edition of the Hobbit I was very curious as to how the story would play in the medium of the comic And I m actually happy to say that the novel itself comes across really well The story characters and plot are all evenly handled However a fundmental problem with the medium of comic books would definitely be visual approachability In a less dense story you could show the action in the graphicsdrawings and the dialogue in word form But when there s a linear approach to a story s plot the graphic medium may not be the best way to handle itbecause I found the actual act of reading this book a bit frustratinghaving to re read panels over again because the flow of dialogue and action were a bit confusing ie do I read this bubble first or that one it seemed to change depending on the layout So hence minus one starBut other than thatthe story has always been a lot of fun riddles rule I don t think I have to praise the original any than it already has beenbut yeah anyone who s a fan of fantasy loves it hobbits the dwarves the wizard and dragons In short I ve read the hobbit a handful of timesand as always it feels like visiting an old friend

line to create the effects he wishes David Wenzel credits both Arthur Rackham and Edmund Dulac as two Indemnity Only of his influences and this is uite evident in his workI particularly like the lush evocative illustrations Arctic Labyrinth of the Shire and the atmospheric Hellblazer Volume 11 Last Man Standing ones in the dragon s cave Most startling for me is the way David Wenzel has captured exactly what Bilbo looks like in my mind s eye a short dumpy male with a bit ueen of Kings of a pot belly and plain almost ugly features He has a bulbous nose and a rubicund good natured face All the dwarves are well drawn individuals and very convincing as is Gollum who is uncannily like the Gollum in the films Smaug is a mean looking and terrifying beast It is perhaps as well to remember that this graphic novel was created a good decade before Peter Jackson s first film Unspoken of The Lord The Gypsy Game of the Rings and far far before any Blind Redemption Blind #3 of his films Wanted by the Warrior of The Hobbit Yet there are several similarities Both David Wenzel and Peter Jackson incorporated JRR Tolkien s maps calligraphy and charts for instance hand drawn and coloured by the author himself It is Tolkien who is responsible for the beautiful lettering and cartographic design not any later artist In a similar way David Wenzel seems to have given a nod to Tolkien s Insatiable original water colours in his choice Unbreakable Highlands Forever #1 of illustrative techniues and palette The text by Chuck Dixon is also excellent and well matched Although both David Wenzel and Chuck Dixon are American the language used is English and much Hot Target of it is straight from Tolkien especially the dialogue in the speech bubbles The strip comments are long and extensive this graphic novel takes a long time to read Only Freedom's Price Bartlett Brothers #2 once did I notice a mistake and it was a humdinger Near the beginning Gandalf says gotten I can imagine the philologist and stickler for authenticity Mr JRR Tolkien would have blanched at that There were a couple Imagine What Is Possible of instances where the American No Man's Nightingale o instead Seduction Devils Den #2 of Into the Fire ou had crept in for example using vigor instead Vertical Run of vigour Undead and Unemployed or flavor instead The People Could Fly American Black Folktales of flavour but they were rare And I particularly appreciated the precise use Emily and Jackson Hiding Out of punctuation with inverted commas always correctly placed and use being made Nightwood of semi colonsI was surprised how much I enjoyed this book as I am not the target audience for graphic novels and conseuently not very easy to please If you want to read a graphic adaptation The Pistol Poets of The Hobbit then you need look no further This is the Rebel Island one It is hard to imagine how it could be bettered within this format And for that reason I rate it a full five stars
