    Oh god, it's bad. It's so bad. And yet it's still a graphic novelization of Jhereg and therefore I still love it. That three-star rating is a compromise on a deep need to give this both five stars and one. Fans of the original book will understand everything they need to know when I say that Morrolan has a beard. And yet it has some beautiful touches, such as Aliera in a long dress floating off the ground and the spell calling Rocza to him..... Oh god, it's bad. It's so bad.

    For a comic adaption of a great fantasy book, this was pretty good...though the art didn't capture my image of the characters. For a comic adaption of a great fantasy book, this was pretty good...though the art didn't capture my image of the characters.

    This was frankly pretty bad; I would love to see a good graphic novel adaptation of Brust's work, but this is absolutely not it. All the things that are interesting about Brust's world are subtracted out to leave a sort of generic fantasy, probably because it was 1990 and that is who they thought the audience for comics was, but ugh.

    The story is one of those that annoy me- however well it's executed is simply making up for the limitless license of the author to add whatever magic is necessary to drive the plot. Stories need boundaries or else the conflict has no gravity and all that supernatural surprise is droll to me. The art is tremendous- other than poorly moving anatomy here and there.

    I wanted it to be good, but it rushed through an outline of the original without capturing much of the charm of Steven Brust’s story or characters.

    I wanted to love this because of my love for the Vlad Taltos series, but I can't. It's like that weird uncle everyone keeps an eye on; sure it's part of the family, but you kinda wish it weren't. The graphics are questionable and the compression of the story just doesn't work. It needed to be longer for it to make any sense at all for readers who hadn't read the source material.
