For folks in the UK, getting a book delivered from amazon.com can be a little steep, which is why I’m delighted to announce that the trade paperback collection of the first four issues of the First Law Graphic novel is now available direct from amazon.uk for a shade over £10 with delivery free.
Adapted by Chuck Dixon, art by Andie Tong, colours by Pete Pantazis, all closely supervised from a spiked throne atop a hill of skulls by yours truly.
The trade paperback version is a really slick piece of work by Blind Ferret, even though I say so myself, and gives you about 100 full colour pages, plus 30 or so pages of extras including annotated character designs, pencils and inks.
The project is on hiatus right now, so there’s no guarantee there’ll be more issues forthcoming, but if the uptake on this trade version is good, we may well see more.
So much stuff has been going on of late with Half a King that I’d entirely forgotten something else which turned up recently – the physical collections of the first four issues of The First Law Graphic Novel. An unforgivable omission, because I tell you what, they are things of some beauty and elevated production […]
This being a wednesday, there’s a new page up at www.firstlawcomic.com, the last of the fourth issue and, I’m sorry to say, it’s going to be the last that goes up there for the time being. The four full issues – 90 pages – that have already been published will stay live on the site, […]
You can pre-order the print collection of the first four issues of The First Law Graphic Novel now over here at Blind Ferret’s online shop. It should be possible to get delivery to pretty much anywhere, I am told, though there may be some cost implications. Just so that no one gets confused, this is a […]
A quick heads up that the print collection of issues 1-4 of the First Law Graphic Novel will be available for preorder from Monday, and here’s the cover: Click upon it to reveal its full glory, then complain about it if you dare because I think it’s fricking GREAT. Along with all the internals, art […]
The fourth issue of The Blade Itself Graphic Novel is now available on Comixology, featuring Mercers, Magi, Murders, and much, much more, and complete with guided view and a package of assorted pencils and inks. A paper collection of the first four issues should be available very shortly. More news as I have it…
One of my favourite pages of this second issue is up at www.firstlawcomic.com, and the entire 22 page 3rd issue is available now at ComiXology, featuring Glokta’s morning ritual and the appearance of a certain First of the Magi… I also note in passing that the longlist for the David Gemmell Legend Award is up […]
Thought I’d show the development of another page from The First Law comic with a very different feel. This time Jezal and Ardee out for a stroll around the Agriont, and encountering a statue of a certain Magus. First pencils and inks from Andie Tong: And finally some amazing work from Pete Pantazis on the […]
Thought I’d put up the progression on another page from the First Law Graphic Novel. Logen had long ago stopped looking for fights, but they seemed to find him with depressing regularity even so… Here are the pencils, and the jagged panels give that feel of action and danger: Inks: Colours, and I like how […]
Andie Tong’s finished inks are coloured by Pete Pantazis and end up like this: I guess before starting on this project I was vaguely aware that you usually had a guy who drew the pages and a guy who coloured them, but if I’d thought about it at all I’d supposed that colouring was a […]
