Review of The Colour of Magic - Comic by Terry Pratchett

Since I'm meant to be doing a review for the Buccaneer Blogfest today, this post will be pulling double duty and, as always, it is posted on LibraryThing and Goodreads.

Title: The Colour of Magic - Comic
Author: Terry Pratchett
Rating: 3/5

This was a pleasant, light and, strangely enough, more entertaining to read than the book it's based off. Certainly amusing enough to quietly while away an hour.
Some of the characters weren’t quite how I’d imagined them, in fact some of the outfits look a little goofy, but I’d watched the Colour of Magic miniseries, read the book and flicked through the Art of Discworld well before finding this, so I suppose that is to be expected. But the backgrounds scenes were wonderfully done and on for the story itself ... as far as I can remember, this followed the original story pretty well. Better than what I recall of the miniseries anyway.

  1. I read this graphic novel--I have to agree with you that it followed the book and the artwork was good, though it isn't my favorite comic.

    Also wanted to let you know that you've won a giveaway on my blog!
