Synopsis:

“Discworld is more complicated and satisfactory than Oz.”
—A.S. Byatt

 

The Color of Magic and The Light Fantastic—the first two volumes of Terry Pratchett’s phenomenally successful, New York Times bestselling Discworld series—are now available in this special anniversary graphic novel edition. Strikingly illustrated and painstakingly adapted, The Discworld Graphic Novels brings Prachett’s bizarre, outrageous—yet strangely familiar—universe of wizards, witches, vampires, bureaucrats, policemen, golems, dwarves, and living luggage to bold, visual life. The Houston Chronicle calls Terry Pratchett, “J.R.R. Tolkien with a sharper, more satiric edge.” The  Washington Post compares him to Geoffrey Chaucer, while the Chicago Tribune admires his “Monty Python-like plots.” But in truth there’s no one quite like the incomparable Pratchett—on this world or any other.


Review:

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.

Book Description: Book Condition: New. Publisher/Verlag: HarperCollins US | The Colour of Magic & The Light Fantastic | Originally published separately as paperback originals in the UK in 1991 (The Colour of Magic) and 1992 (The Light Fantastic), this is a strikingly illustrated, painstakingly adapted graphic novelization of the first two Discworld novels, now in trade paperback. | Imagine a flat world sitting on the backs of four elephants who hurtle through space balanced on a giant turtle and you have the Discworld, a place (and a time) strangely parallel to our own. In 1983, a small UK press published a novel called The Colour of Magic; three years later, the misadventures of an inept wizard named Rincewind and a naive tourist called Twoflower were continued with the publication of The Light Fantastic. And, an international publishing phenomenon was begun. Today the world knows that the Discworld is the setting for Terry Pratchetts phenomenally successful series of the same name; comprised of 37 titles and having sold more than 55 million copies worldwide, it celebrated its 25th anniversary in 2008. The Discworld Graphic Novels: The Colour of Magic and The Light Fantastic presents the first two volumes of this much-loved series in graphic novel form. Originally published as separate paperback originals in the UK in 1991 and 1992 respectively, these fully illustrated, four-color versions are now issued for the first time together in one beautiful edition. | Format: Paperback | Language/Sprache: english | 705 gr | 272 pp. Bookseller Inventory # K9780061833106
