The Discworld Graphic Novels: The Colour of Magic and The Light Fantastic

Front Cover
Harper Collins, Oct 6, 2009 - Comics & Graphic Novels - 272 pages

In a distant and second-hand set of dimensions, in an astral plane that was never meant to fly . . .

Imagine a flat world sitting on the backs of four elephants who hurtle through space balanced on a giant turtle. The Discworld is a place (and a time) strikingly parallel to our own—but also very different. But also very similar.

To commemorate the twenty-fifth anniversary of the birth of the Discworld, the first two volumes of the remarkable Terry Pratchett's equally remarkable—and phenomenally successful—series were made available together, right here, in graphic novel form. These beautifully illustrated renditions of The Colour of Magic and The Light Fantastic show and tell the bizarre misadventures of the spectacularly inept wizard Rincewind and Twoflower, Discworld's very first—and possibly, portentously its very last—tourist. Not to mention the Luggage, which has a mind of its own. And teeth.

Maybe this suffered from the fact that I just read Terry Pratchett's novel and it seemed to me that some of the humorous elements are just missing in this version. Read full review
