Terry Pratchett’s The Discworld Graphic Novels

Today over on the Kirkus Reviews Blog, I take a look at a graphic novel that comprises the adaptations of Terry Pratchett’s The Colour of Magic and The Light Fantastic.

From the post:

The Colour of Magic.  Rincewind is a wizard.  Unfortunately, he is not a very good wizard.  He never got high marks during his time attending the Unseen University.  As such, he doesn’t have many prospects.  He does have a penchant for running away and escaping danger.  Enter Twoflower, the Discworld’s first ever tourist, who has travelled from the Counterweight Continent all the way to the city of Ankh-Morpork to ‘look at things’.  This odd behavior attracts a lot of attention, as does the fact that Twoflower carries a lot of gold and doesn’t seem to understand how much that gold is worth in Ankh-Morpork versus his homeland.  Rincewind is tasked with showing Twoflower around, and seeing him safely back to his home with a pleasant story that will bring more of these ‘tourists’ to Ankh-Morpork to spend their gold.
