Have you ever wondered how others see your favourite characters? The old saying, a pictures worth a thousand words stands true. A comic book, with several pictures, gives an opportunity to see how one creative team see the characters.
In December 2003 Les Dabel of Roaring Studios announced that they would be adapting to a comic/graphic novel series, Raymond E. Feist, The Wood Boy, which first appeared in Robert Silverbergs' Legends anthology. After a rocky start the complete story was finally released.
Since that first foray into the worlds of Raymond E. Feist, they set their sights on bigger targets, and under the new banner of Dabel Brothers Productions they took on the task of adapting Magician Apprentice, the first part of Magician. Again though, all was not well, and after initial production difficulties, which caused delays and availability issues, it was announced in September 2006 that Dabel Brothers Productions would partner with Marvel Comics for the publication, thus giving the comic book a promising future.
On 13th August 2007, the news was released that Marvel Comics and Dabel Brothers Productions would split, with Marvel retaining the rights to publish the Comic Book Adaptation of Magician Apprentice. We are still awaiting the third and final segnment of the series, which has now been announced - see the Latest News.
