    1 thought on “Prince of Persia Before the Sandstorm -- A Graphic Novel Anthology

    1. This was one of the best stand-alone comics that I’ve ever read. As soon as I saw the Disney logo on the back I was like ”What is this shit?”But they did not hold back, blood and love in fierce tellings and tales. I could have not been happier getting this from my boyfriend as a christmas gift.Read It! :)

    2. Eight different artists collaborated in the telling of this group of tales. Each one unique and quite capable in their own right.A rogue bunch is brought before his Excellency (whom I believe went nameless) because they had treasure that seemed beyond their means to aquire honestly.Each of the five tell a tale designed to vouch for themselves and each other. They are all tales that tie them to Prince Dastan who they all claim is kind, generous, and thoughtful. Each tale tells a larger story, whi [...]

    3. Reason for Reading: This is a Cybils '10 nominee and required reading for me as a graphic novels panelist.I have not played the Prince of Persia game nor have I seen the movie yet. Therefore, I am coming at this book with no background knowledge of the story. Basically an anthology in reverse, where the book is written by one person but illustrated by many different artists. The art is never dramatically different story to story but taking a look at the book as a whole the styles do range from D [...]

    4. Entertaining thrilling story, reflects the authors good knowledge of middle east history, yet he somehow ruined it by mixing all different civilization styles together! Some people think Arabs, Turks and Persians are one race with same style in cloths in ancient times, and same stories and legends! hehe Anyway I loved the plots that involved Alamut's castle and the assassins. I also liked the style of storytelling series of short stories connected in one longer story, inspired by the arabian nig [...]

    5. Although I played the first game, I'm not a fan of Prince of Persia franchise so this graphic novel wasn't even in my wish list. I think it's partly because McFarlane' cover art isn't captured the whole idea of this book. But someday I have a privilage to sneak peek it's interior, and I was shocked to find that Nico Henrichon's Pride of Baghdad artist is there with Tommy Lee Edwards. I decided to buy this, and more shocked to find the story was amusing. Jordan Mechner followed the Fables traditi [...]

    6. I enjoyed this graphic novel, but it could have been better. The concept seems to have been to create a series of interwoven stories, in the vein of the traditional middle eastern "story within a story" form of tale. Unfortunately, the stories aren't interwoven, but instead follow a pattern of a group of rogues vouching for each other, with wildly unlikely stories each supposedly proving that another one of the crazy stories could be true. Maybe one or more are true, or maybe none. As a result, [...]

    7. I feel rather idiotic after reading this. I haven't seen this film since late 2010, in which much coffee was consumed, projects for class were due, and I barely paid any attention to it.Don't get me wrong, the stories were interesting and the artwork was a good range of different. But unless you just finished watching the movie or are planning to watch it right after finishing this - you might seriously be lost in a fog of, "WHAT IS GOING ON?!?!?!"Could someone throw me a life preserver, I'm dro [...]

    8. Graphic novel -- rather, a collection of short stories scripted by Mechner, drawn by various (I assume well-known) artists.This is clearly a media tie-in project, with a big "Disney" label. The stories yank in elements from *both* the movie and the well-known videogame series, without a lot of cohesion. But then, "bag of stories" always works in the Arabian-Nights-ish setting.I snagged this in order to find out, amid all the "Prince of Persia" commercial properties, whether *Mechner* was a good [...]

    9. Based on Disney's Prince of Persia franchise, this selection of illustrated tales attempts to look at the role Prince Dastan has played in the lives of his friends, allies, and even adversaries. Told in five parts, the characters attempt to explain away the supposedly "unearned" wealth bestowed upon them to a local magistrate. Having never seen, played, or read anything to do with the Prince of Persia universe, this graphic novel did little to open up to new readers. This is most likely recommen [...]

    10. I’m pretty sure Prince of Persia isn’t the cornerstones of what a great graphic novel is. Despite the art from 8 different artists, there is a similar style and all of it is pretty. It reflects what the story and its colorful and just done really well. I can’t exactly say the same about the story. Its not exactly a thrill ride to read. Its probably why I did it it over a couple of days, reading one or two stories a day. Its not a bad story but it never really has much uniqueness to it.

    11. I felt that the detailed graphics were a waste, sometimes, as not all were utilized or connected to the storyline. This seemed like a prelude to something else, neither here, nor there. It wasn't a complete story in itself. My imagination did not take flight together with the drawings.

    12. This seems to focus on the back story of other characters in the Prince of Persia universe. I have not played the latest Prince of Persia game, so perhaps there are tie-in's and references that I did not get. It was a pretty decent book, with good narrative.

    13. A collection of stories set in Persia during ancient times. The artwork is good and the stories are satisfactory. Graphic novel fans will likely enjoy. I found it a little confusing in spots. Good, but not great.

    14. Pages are a little intense for younger readers, with many many panels. But kids hungry for more grownup-looking comics do tend to snap this up. All in all, especially considering it's based on a movie that's based on a video game, this book is of surprising quality.

    15. Fun little collection with a good grouping of attractive art in varied styles. Some of the references to older versions of the Prince of Persia games were lost on me, but it didn't ruin the stories for me.
