Rating: 10/10 (Ratings explained)
Reviewer: Harriet Klausner
This graphic comic book was released by Eclipse over a decade ago and re-released as an illustrated novel about five years ago. Anyone who does not know the story line is probably not interested so this reviewer will not repeat the often told and read tale of Bilbo.
The book adheres to Tolkien's tale and is supplemented by beautiful illustrations (as expected with a comic book) that will blow away anyone who has not seen comic art in recent years. Though some readers will take exception to the visualization of heroes and villains not as expected in their mind’s eye, most fans of the novels and fantasy in general will fully enjoy this edition that pays tribute to Tolkien and his classic work.
