Mehr über den Autor

Wer Fantasyromane und Science Fiction liebt, dem dürfte der Name Richard A. Knaak ein Begriff sein. Der in Chicago geborene Autor hat einen Bachelorabschluss in Rhetorik. Er weiß also mit Sprache umzugehen - und verfügt zudem über eine enorme Fantasie. Als Inspirationsquellen für seine Bücher gibt Knaak die Werke von Andre Norton, Roger Zelazny, Edgar Rice Burroughs und Edgar Allan Poe an. Bekannt wurde er vor allem mit Romanen der "Drachenlanze"-Serie. Zu absoluten Dauerbrennern entwickelten sich später die Folgen der "World-of-Warcraft"-Reihe, auf der auch die gleichnamigen Computerspiele basieren.

Produktbeschreibungen

Synopsis

In "Dragon Hunt", following the Battle of Mount Hyjal, the free races of Azeroth are beginning to rebuild. The fragile peace is threatened when an ancient power source emanates throughout the land, and all eyes turn in search of its source. Kalecgyos, a member of the decimated race of blue dragons, is sent on a clandestine quest to the Elven Kingdom of Quel'Thalas to find answers. Pursued by both a vengeful Dwarven bounty hunter and forces of the Undead Scourge, Kalec finds his fate bound to a beautiful peasant girl with secrets of her own.

Einleitungssatz
No one knows exactly how the universe began, but it is clear that the Titans-a race of powerful, metal-skinned gods from the far reaches of the cosmos-explored the newborn universe and make it their mission to bring stability to the various worlds and ensure a safe future for the beings that would follow in their footsteps. Lesen Sie die erste Seite

Format: Taschenbuch
Als ich im amerkanischen Comics-Katalog "Previews" die Ankündigung dieses Buchs sah, war ich voller Vorfreude. Als Comic- und "WarCraft"-Fan schien dies ein interessantes Projekt zu werden.

Die Umsetzung hat mich allerdings nicht überzeugt.

Zum einen ist da der Manga-Stil. Ob man das nun mag oder nicht ist eine Geschmacksfrage. Allerdings passt der Stil nicht zu WarCraft, wenn man an die vielen Illustrationen zu den diversen "WarCraft"-Spielen denkt. Der Wiedererkennugswert ist gering, ein "WarCraft"-Feeling stellt sich nicht wirklich ein. Es entsteht der Eindruck als ist der Comic ein Zugeständnis an die große Fangemeinde der "WarCraft"-Spiele in Korea. Amerikaner und Europäer haben da eher das Nachsehen, da sie andere Comics und andere "WarCraft"-Kunst gewöhnt sind.

Der Comic ist nicht coloriert. Das mag manchem sehr gelegen kommen, aber ich persönlich hätte mir einen Farbcomic gewünscht, wie es in nahezu jedem Comic vom "Lustigen Taschenbuch" bis zu diversen amerikanischen Comic-Serien Standard ist.

Das Format (ca. Din A5) und die S/W-Darstellung machen die Erkennbarkeit teils schwierig. Manche Illustrationen sind nur auf den zweiten oder dritten Blick zu erkennen.

Bekannte "WarCraft"-Charaktere sucht man vergeblich. Alle handelnden Personen sind neu. Personen wie Lichkönig Arthas tauchen nur ganz am Rande auf. (Geringer Identifikationsgrad.)

Einige inhaltliche Patzer trüben ebenfalls das Bild. Jeder "WoW-Spieler weiß, dass das Städtchen Tarren Mill in Hand der Untoten von Sylvanas ist. Im Comic hingegen ist das Dorf von Menschen bewohnt, obwohl der Comic zeitlich in "WoW"-Zeiten angesiedelt ist. Zudem sind einige Gruppen merkwürdig besetzt.

STRONG START TO THE TRILOGY 14. April 2005
Von Tim Janson - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Based upon the enormously popular PC, video, and role-playing games comes this first part in the Warcraft graphic novel "Sunwell Trilogy" from TokyoPop. "Dragonhunt" opens with a prologue detailing the rich history of the Warcraft universe in which the Titans go about creating worlds and breathing life into them throughout the universe. They create the Well of Eternity upon the world of Azeroth, leaving flights of dragons to protect their creation. Azeroth soon becomes a battle ground as the Titans former champion, the Dark Titan Sargeras, corrupted by evil and with hordes of orcs led by the Lich King, seeks the Well for his own. The cataclysmic battle sunders the world into fragmented landmasses. The story begins as the Lich King, Arthas seeks to rebuild his citadel and humans and orcs enter join in an uneasy alliance to battle Arthas' undead Scourge.

An injured blue dragon, Kalec, now in human form is assisted by a young girl Anveena to escape those who are hunting him. Kalec explains that the dragons are seeking a great source of power and he was sent by Malygos, the Lord of the Blue Dragons, to find this power. But he's not the only one searching for it. An evil elf, Dar'khan, servant of the Lich King is also seeking the power which he reveals as the Sunwell, source of elven power, created out of the destruction of the Well of Eternity. Dar'khan captures Kalec and Anveena and only the intervention of another blue dragon, Kalec's mate Tyrygosa, allows them to escape. They soon learn that Anveena's home houses a secret...an egg which a tiny dragon hatches from. Could this be the source of the power that everyone is searching for? Where will their journey lead them from here?

Dragonhunt was an outstanding start to this trilogy. Having not been overly familiar with the Warcraft Universe, I found the history rich, colorful and detailed. There certainly seems to be some Tolkien influence, particularly in the prologue, but it still cuts a nice, unique world, all its own. A lot of action was tossed at you very fast and there wasn't a great deal of character development so hopefully we will delve into these various characters in the succeeding volumes. It's interesting to see the blend of heroic fantasy done with a Manga style. Since Warcraft is a known commodity with legions of fans, people may be predisposed of how it should look, but I thought the art of Jae-Hwan Kim was superb and fit very well. Kim is one of the best artists in Manga today, having worked on the terrific "King of Hell" series, also from TokyoPop. He's got a clean, yet very detailed style and handles action sequences deftly.

The story was written by Richard Knaak, one of the tops in the heroic fantasy genre. Knaak has written such huge hits as "The Legend of Huma" and The Minotaur Wars, set in the Dragonlance world, as well as Warcraft novels "Day of the Dragon" and "The Well of Eternity." In addition to Warcraft, Knaak has also written novels based on the "Diablo" PC game so he has a strong background in adapting gaming environments to novels. Knaak and Kim have succeeded in creating not only a gorgeous graphic novel, but a marvelous heroic fantasy story, with lively characters and an intriguing plotline. A must for fans of Manga, Warcraft, or heroic fantasy!

The art carries the book. 23. Januar 2006
Von Chip Hunter - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
From what I've seen of Manga, the art in this book far exceeds the norm. Detailed and beautiful drawings capture the wonder of the world of Warcraft nicely. Characters are developed and defined by the expressions on their faces and the cloths that they wear. It is amazing that so much of the feeling behind the story can come straight from the visuals. It almost seemed like you could get through this book without even really needing to read any of the dialogue.

While I was a bit disapointed in the story as a whole, it may just be because I am so used to reading novels that I have a hard time appreciating the simplicity of the story, or it may be that much of this book was devoted to laying the foundation for more Warcraft mangas to come. Either way I will definitely get the next one as soon as I see it.

One thing is for sure though, the artist for this book deserves far more of the credit than Richard Knaak.. This seems like something Knaak could pound out in just a couple of days while the detail in the art makes me believe that much, much more time was invested in that part of the work.

And what exactly does this have to do with Warcraft? 10. Dezember 2007
Von Claire E. Hummel - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Dragon Hunt was, by far, a disappointment. I'm sure I'm not the first to ay how excited I was to see the World of Warcraft franchise extending its hand into the world of printed media, but the result, while not horrific, was extraordinarily mediocre.

I received my copies of the first two volumes of the Sunwell Trilogy as prizes for winning one of the WoW comic contests this past year, and even the fact that I got them for free couldn't cover up how poor I thought they were. The art is impressive, I must admit, and is towards the higher-end of manga, but it's generic and in no way reflects the already gorgeous and well-established visual style within the Warcraft universe. Similarly, the writing style and storyline, as has been said in previous reviews, goes on and on like any typical high fantasy novel and has little or no reason to be set in Azeroth. World of Warcraft is renowned for its stylized design, clean gameplay, and a well-honed sense of humor- why would that then be stripped away to write a story about bishounen elves who can turn into dragons? Search me.

Art Stupendous; Story Incredibly Long-Winded 13. Oktober 2005
Von L. Mintah - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I don't know about you, but in my manga, I like to read pages of a background story in minute detail, beginning with the creation of the world, and spanning thousands of years, through catacyclsm after catacylsm. Races and cities rise and fall, lots of good folks just inexplicably go "mad," and that's all before the art! No, actually, I don't.

Warcraft is written by a guy whose imagination is in overdrive. If this is a trilogy, and not a thirty-volume manga, such a background story was really uneccesary. What saves this manga is the art.

Korean artist Jae-Hwan Kim draws really exciting art. You feel like you are in the story. Kim has an incredible sense of space, dimension, and proportion. The characters designs and clothing are to die for. The men are men's men, but wear intricate clothing and armor. The women are beautiful, with lovely clothes. Forests and mountains don't look like backdrops, but like the real thing. You can almost smell the pine trees.

Richard A. Knaak has a "knack" for storytelling, when the manga finally begins. It is a good tale of good vs. evil in a fantasy land. Dragon Kalec has taken human form when he is attacked by a band of orcs led by a dragon-hating dwarf. Injured, Kalec is led to safety by a beautiful, naiive peasant girl named Anveena.

Anveena is so dumb, she makes TV's Crank Yanker's Special Ed look like a genius. (Yay!) If she were as ugly as she is stupid, Kalec would run like hell. As it is, she is very pretty, and Kalec feels a bond with her, even though he is engaged to the Dragon Tyrl. Tyrl is smart, beautiful, and arrogant. Soon they are engaged in bloody, (well-drawn) battles with orcs and the undead. Seeing someone fighting with his guts hanging out is pretty cool.

I would get this trilogy just for the art.

BRILLIANT 22. März 2005
Von Abdul Sanchez - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I finished reading the Warcraft Vol. 1 manga only last night, and I cannot wait for volume 2 to come out. First of all, the story is a classic, and an original. Esentially what you need to know to understand the story is that there is a well of energy called the Sunwell, which was destroyed during a war. Dragons, the most supreme and powerful beings on the planet, are drawn to the energy, although the exact location of it is unknown. Kalec, a blue dragon, is seeking to discover more on the sunwell, and reveal some of its secrets. However, he is being pursued, by others after the exact same thing. He meets two beautiful women along the way, one of them a fellow blue dragon, and the other frees him from a trap in the beginning of the story. I won't tell any more about the story- I'm afraid I may have revealed too much already! The artwork is magnificent. It is, by far, the best drawing of ANY manga or graphic novel I've ever read- the details draw you into the situation as a reader. This comes from the same animator as 'King of Hell', another superb series. Richard Knaak, a New York Times Bestselling author, wrote the introduction, which initially engulfs you into the story, as well as the dialogue. It's worth WAY more than ten bucks of your money. If you love fantasy or have an obsession with dragons, this is a must-have. I'm already addicted beyond hope.
