The Exile: an Outlander graphic novel by Diana Gabaldon

Purchased

The Exile retells the original Outlander novel from Jamie Fraser’s point of view, revealing events never seen in the original story and giving readers a whole new insight into the Jamie-Claire relationship. Jamie’s surreptitious arrival in Scotland at the beginning of the tale, his feelings about Claire, and much more — up to the point where Claire faces trial for witchcraft and must choose whether to return to her own century — are brought to life in brilliant four-colour art. (from Goodreads)

I just finished reading my copy of (not supposed to be released until tomorrow) The Exile.  I have had the opportunity of viewing several of the panels previously when Gabaldon shared them at Dragon*Con.  However, nothing lives up to viewing the book in its entirety.

I started out slowly reading and examining the pictures.  Then I got so caught up in the story, that I was only really reading the dialogue.  Now I plan to go back and examine the pictures frame by frame, then read the entire book again for the full effect.

I also see a re-reading of the entire series in my near future.  There is no one like Jamie.  Of course, the illustrations don’t match MY idea of Jamie, but I don’t think any two people have the same idea anyway.  Mine is the right one, of course.  -grin-
