The Hobbit Comic Book Adaptations

Hopefully the new film will spur a graphic novel publisher to produce a new adaptation. Let me tell you my comic book connection to the Hobbit and why I will not go see this movie.

Maybe I will see it on cable. A long time ago, in a classroom far away, my eight grade teacher, Mrs.

We then had to give a report on one of the topics. I choose the creation of the Earth, from Norse Mythology.

My source was not to be this book, but the newly published Tales of Asgard that appeared in Journey into Mystery with Thor. It was a great story, embellished, of course, by lee and Kirby, and the teacher really liked it.

Hobbit (1989) comic books

The Hobbit was very different from the Lord of the Rings trilogy, which I also read and enjoyed. It was a lighter book, far less complicated and was a wonderful introduction to the Middle Earth. Peter Jackson, the director of the Hobbit, the Lord of the Rings, has become too self-absorbed and indulgent.

They actually never got published into English at all. But still are the only official comics based on The Lord of the Rings that are licensed by Tolkien Enterprises, based in California.

The artist, Luis Bermejo, who drew these comics was of spanish origin. The main character is Bilbo Baggins, a contented home-loving hobbit, who likes the quiet life.

His life is then turned upside down when he joins the wizard Gandalf and a group of thirteen dwarves. Using his brains, and with several opportunities for inventing devious riddles, Bilbo eventually realises that it is up to him to enable the dwarves to achieve their long dream and reclaim their homeland. Alone he must face and outwit the monster who now guards the stolen hoard of treasure. And this monster is a much-feared dragon, the most dreaded in all Middle-earth, a worm called Smaug.

They are beautiful and very painterly.

David Wenzel credits both Arthur Rackham and Edmund Dulac as two of his influences, and this is quite evident in his work. He has a bulbous nose and a rubicund good-natured face.
