Prince of Persia: The Graphic Novel

Prince of Persia: The Graphic Novel by Jordan Mechner (created by), A. B. Sina (written by), LeUyen Pham & Alex Puvilland (artwork by), Hilary Sycamore (color by)
A thousand years ago in Persia (before a young adventurer escaped a dungeon to rescue a princess, before a scheming vizier tricked a prince into unleasing the sands of time) a prophecy was made: "a palace must fall. A prince must rise from the waters where none has known him, save for a sad girl under a fig tree."

...a solid evolution from video game to graphic novel, Mechner and Sina breathe life, passion and legend into the original concept...Pham and Puvilland's vibrant, bold art creates a lush backdrop for this intense tale...a sprawling, visually literate landscape of love, lore and violence...a fine saga for older readers.

Well written with very good art. Was a bit rushed at times, and the connection between the two seperate stories going on wasn't really evident. Still, a good book.
