Introduction by Charles de Lint cover I absolutely loved this The story was quite fun, but it was the artwork that really grabbed me It s so gorgeous The art is somewhat muted, but it s still super colorful I will probably buy this so I can read it again and again It s my favorite graphic novel that I ve ever read 2nd read through with my boys They loved it too, and wanted me to read the whole thing in one sitting. Fantastic art, fun story, with some unusual plot twists and a great ending. This books is funny, exciting and adorable Busiek goes above and beyond to create a new fantasy story with familiar elements If you re a fan of fantasy and I know most people on my friend s list are then pick this graphic novel up. The artwork in this was 5 stars.The story was 3 stars.The ending made me smile like a fool though. The Wizard s Tale has been on my To Read list for years I remember when it was first published I was thick with reading almost only superhero books and this story sounds like it would be a good change of pace For one reason or another I did get around to reading it then Years go by and I find it in a discount pile at my local comic shop so I picked it up I ve diversified my comic reading since then still plenty of superheroes, but now with a health mix of crime with a little sci fi , but The Wizard s Tale has been on my To Read list for years I remember when it was first published I was thick with reading almost only superhero books and this story sounds like it would be a good change of pace For one reason or another I did get around to reading it then Years go by and I find it in a discount pile at my local comic shop so I picked it up I ve diversified my comic reading since then still plenty of superheroes, but now with a health mix of crime with a little sci fi , but The Wizard s Tale, with it s setting in high fantasy, is still outside of my typical reading choices.To describe the book in one word would be quaint It s not a big epic with action and adventure, as you might expect from a fantasy story Rather, it s a simple tale about an evil wizard who finally learns and accepts who he really is.It s simply and wonderfully told by Kurt Busiek and the artwork from David Wenzel is scrumptious in its detail and design It s a quiet, but beautiful, story that felt just right to me A fine quick fantasy tale Art was good, story was brisk and familiar 3.5 stars.
