“Dixon and Conley are operating at an extremely high level, making superb storytelling choices not only within the confines of a single issue but when considering the series as a whole.

This series continues to impress with its strong storytelling and respectful treatment of Jordan's source material. Arguably one of the best comic book adaptations on the shelves today,The Eye of the World is quickly proving itself to be a series of craftsmanship and heart.” —Broken Frontier on The Eye of the World: the graphic novel, Volume One
