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 standards:
Four issues in the collection, which was adapted from Joe Abercrombie’s seminal work of modern fantasy fiction by Chuck Dixon, so over 90 full colour pages:
Though there are currently no new pages forthcoming, you can still see the full first four issues, free of charge, over at the website, but the physical edition includes a bunch of Andie Tong’s pencils and character designs annotated by me, plus some pages showing development from pencils, to inks, to Pete Pantazis’ colours AND an introduction from my old mate Peter V Brett.
You can order the collection either from amazon.com or directly from Blind Ferret. Sorry to say there’s no direct distribution outside of North America on this one, so if you did want to order from the UK or elsewhere, delivery might be a little steep…
