    It's hard to remember the mid-late 80's when funny fantasy controlled swaths of territory and Robert Asprin's Myth books strode across that landscape like T-Rex, but I assure you young reader that it was so. So this is an adaptation of the first part of the first of those books into comic book form, adapted by Phil Foglio, now renowned as one of the _Girl Genius_ creators.

Like all humor it is of its time, very much into playing fantasy tropes for humor, but the wordplay of the original mixed with Foglio's immediately identifiable artwork lets this hold up pretty well. It's an enjoyable distraction even if I only have this first volume.

    IF YOU CAN FIND THIS, GRAB IT. READ IT. This has to be one of the absolute best comic adaptations of a novel of all time. I've still got the original WaRP Graphics issues that comprise this collection; I lost this actual colorized graphic novel version a few years back. I wish to GODS I could find it again! It's laugh-out-loud HYSTERICAL.

It's laugh-out-loud HYSTERICAL. This is one of the rare times when an adaptation actually improves the original -- Foglio has a deft comedic touch with the medium, and he truly gets the characters. He was a long-time illustrator for the initial Donning releases of the Asprin books, and he brings that expertise & friendship with Asprin to its best here. Yes, he changes the books. BUT...those changes were with Asprin's approval. Hell, Foglio's changes often make more sense than what was in the original book -- how he portrays the villain Isstvan & his motives is tons more logical (and funny) than the book, for example, and we finally get some very intriguing backstory for how Skeeve's first teacher ended up stuck on Klahd, and how Tanda and Aahz fit in. Mind, I LOVE the original Asprin MythAdventures series (up until the cowriters took them over after his death, anyway). Foglio just launches them above & beyond into pure GOLD. His design of Aahz alone (think a green meatloaf with huge grinning fangs who'd make Scarface crap his pants) is perfect. Foglio, if you read these at all, I wish you'd somehow deal to pick up and adapt more of the MythAdventures books. It'd be a worthy memorial to Robert Asprin's memory, instead of the awful wrecks the current "coauthors" making of his work.

    Let me start off by saying, "This is the way that the Myth characters truly look." I love the Myth comic books. I always though Phil Foglio drew the best looking Aahz (the artists on all of the covers for the books never came close) and Skeeve. Even if you have read the first book in the Myth series, Another Fine Myth, you will still get a mighty big kick out of this book. This book is comprised of the first four comics that are based upon Another Fine Myth and are only first half of the origina Let me start off by saying, "This is the way that the Myth characters truly look."

This book is comprised of the first four comics that are based upon Another Fine Myth and are only first half of the original book. I have read Another Fine Myth at least three times, and this graphic novel also three times. I can not get enough of these two characters. Myth Adventures One is a winner for anyone who loves a fun fantasy tale with the world's wackiest due. If you can find this book, you will absolutely love it. I rated this graphic novel a 9 out of 10.

    This book is hysterical! For folks who are into Dungeons & Dragons, the pre 3.0 version, Phil's work has been a graphic staple; The Adventures of Phil and Dixie. I always loved Phil's panel strips in the Dragon magazines, and when he did the art work for Myth Adventures graphic novel, it was a must have. His style is humorous and expressive...and his visual sound effects...the *tink tink* of an object in the aftermath of Aahz (no relation) and Skeeve's first meeting just adds to the humor.

    Phil Foglio applies his characteristic brand of inventive, hilarious art to Robert Asprin's Another Fine Myth. The result is a delightful fantasy story that you'll want to read twice: once for the plot, and a second time to catch all the jokes scattered through the panels. MythAdventures was my first sample of Foglio's work, and while I prefer his Buck Godot universe, he did a fantastic job adapting Asprin's novel into comic-book form, and in the process, strengthening and tightening the story.

    The drollery of Robert Aspirin's first Myth Adventure novel ("Another Fine Myth") as illustrated and enhanced by an early-career Phil Foglio -- a combination that produces something wonderful.
