Wait, does this mean a condensed form of the series? If so, I'm totally reading it. Normally I have better 1000 page books to read.

This first image looks really good. I dont recognise whats going on in the others, and Im not sure that whats happening at the bottom of image 4 belongs in the Wheel of Time.

Also I have started a Wheel of Time podcast, so anyone interested can hear it at www.thewotcast.com

The prologue issue covers 'RAVENS', the 'new' introduction to THE EYE OF THE WORLD that Robert Jordan wrote in 2002 for the YA edition of the novel (the one that was split into two smaller books).

And yes, it was rubbish. The proper prologue, the one with Lews Therin and Ishamael, works because it does just drop you straight into the action and then suddenly it's 3500 years later. Having Tam sit down and read the kids as 9-year-olds a campfire story about the War of the Shadow is just lame (and seriously, isn't that not really a suitable story for kids anyway? They'd be traumatised!).

That's the first I've heard about Universal picking up the movie rights last August.

If that's how they choose to depict the Age of Legends, as though it was Early Middle Ages instead of a futuristic world more akin to our own, I'm not sure I see the point in getting these.

And the series won't be condensed. According to Chuck Dixon they're doing one issue PER CHAPTER! So this is going to take like 50 years to finish.

That's insane. There are 502 chapters in the first 11 books. That'll take about 41 years and 9 months to complete. And half those chapters would consist of people just talking to one another and then having sarcastic thoughts about members of the opposing sex. What?

Christ, can you imagine an adaption (screen, comic, whatever) of 'Crossroads of Twilight'?

@ Adam,
It could not be worst than the Marvel comics adpatations for "pride&pred", which by the way are quite good. WoT have introduced many ya and female readers to the fantasy world, and in general have done much good to the genere. Besides, I for one enjoyed his (Jordan) monotonous chapters, as many call them. Just because is fantasy it does not have to be action packed all the time :)

Oh, boy. This looks like a colour book for children aged 4-10. Terrible!
This ain't going to work if you ask me.

Well as long as they use the often commented on Mirrored Stand Lamps I'll be happy...you can never have enough of those.

What are the odds they even get halfway through the first book?

Didn't they not finish the New Spring comics? And that was like half the length of the rest of the books.
