With the interesting events six weeks ago involving Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time and the hastily made pilot with Billy Zane… story here… it seems like a good time to put the Dynamite series on sale and that's just what Comixology is doing this weekend. Which means the publisher has sent us the first issue for you to read for free.
Written by Robert Jordan and Chuck Dixon and with art by Chase Conley, this issue starts the adaptation of the popular fantasy universe that Jordan created.
The Wheel of Time turns and Ages come and go, leaving memories that become legend. Legend fades to myth, and even myth is long forgotten when the Age that gave it birth returns again. In the Third Age, an Age of Prophecy, the World and Time themselves hang in the balance. What was, what will be, and what is, may yet fall under the Shadow.
Strangers have come to the village of Emond's Field, located in Two Rivers, during the Bel Tine holiday. With theses strangers come stories of the outside world: tales of war and of a man who claims to be the Dragon Reborn, the one prophesized to save the world, and also to destroy it in his madness. For it is known that no man can channel the One Power without going horribly insane.
Featuring issues 0 and 1 of the series, from writer Robert Jordan – joined by the legendary Chuck Dixon – along with artist Chase Conley! 64 BIG pages with bonus materials!
