Dark One Graphic Novel Coming 2020


Today, Vault Comics have announced the first Dark One graphic novel set to be released in 2020. Jackson Lanzing, one of the writers, also tweeted that the manuscript was 209 pages, and they started work on it eight months ago. He said next year, "you can finally join us in Mirandus," presumably the world of the story, and said "Down with the Narrative. All hail the Dark One." 

For those of you who may have forgotten, Dark One is set to become a multimedia project involving a television series, graphic novels, a book series and a podcast. This is the story of a young man who discovers he is fated to become a tyrant and destroy a world of magic. You may also remember this as the story where the ground carries an electrical charge.

This graphic novel will be published by Vault Comics, as opposed to Dynamite Entertainment who published the White Sand series, and co-written by Jackson Lanzing and Colin Kelly with art by Nathan Gooden.

Let us know what you think, excited about Dark One? Does this multimedia approach interest you? Tell us below!

Really excited about this, but I'm also confused. I think Sanderson mentioned on Reddit either this week or last week that Dark One was going to have an audiobook component too. I'm wondering if that's taking the place of the television show, will be in addition to everything else, will be the prequel books he's talked about writing, or something else like misspeaking or a secret he'd been planning he let slip. 

Regardless, if everything goes well for the Jordan estate and Sanderson, we could have a very, VERY fun and filled 2020.

I really want to watch the tv series (assuming its eventually greenlit) before the graphic novels since they will both be following the same storyline. I know there will be differences, but I'm under the impression that each will spoil the other, and I'd much rather experience the first tv adaptation of Brandon's works as completely new to me rather than the graphic novel. If I'm misinformed about how similar the tv show and the graphic novel will be, please let me know. Cause I'd really hate to have to wait to read the graphic novel.

I agree with you here. However, I approach this as a matter of preference- If it's gonna be a visual medium, then it has got to be fully visual, none of this inbetween graphic novel stuff.
