As Brandon said on a recent livestream, the Dark One graphic novel is done, and now its preorders are open! It's also coming really soon. The ebook is out June 26th, and the hardcovers begin shipping August 17th! It costs $29.99 for the hardcover +eBook and $19.99 for the ebook alone. The book is 224 pages long and you can already read the first 29 on the preorder page, near the bottom! It looks pretty sweet, and I think I like it quite a bit better than the White Sand graphic novels.
There are a bunch of preorder goodies for ordering now. One is an exclusive invitation for a livestream Q&A with Brandonm where he will be answering questions about the book. There's also exclusive digital pre-order bonus pack, which includes an art book, bonus excerpt, author letter from Brandon, desktop and phone backgrounds, and discount codes for ebook purchases and the Dark One t-shirt. Vault also has a nifty countdown as to when preorders close and these goodies go away, which seem to be counting down to June 25th.
Here's the blurb about the graphic novel:
Some worlds are made to be broken.
Paul Tanasin is a young man haunted by visions of a dark and fantastic world―visions he initially believes are hallucinations. But when he discovers they are prophecies from Mirandus, a world in which he’s destined to become a fearsome destroyer, he’ll have to embrace the fear, rise up as the Dark One, and shatter everything. Dark One examines the dual roles we often take on in life—the ability to be a savior as well as a destroyer.
Brandon also said: "Vault will also be doing some really cool stuff with the book in the coming weeks so keep an eye on their page!" Neat, I wonder what that will involve.
