Includes comics from issues #1 - 5.

With just a few changes we could learn to love your visual Reboot of the Honorverse but this is not movie ready. 16 janvier 2015
Par Michael L. Burgess - Publié sur
Format: Broché
PLEASE: I want to see an Honor Harrington movie, but you are ignoring your fan base that wants to work for you.

1: Visually there are two critically important uniforms in the Royal Manticoran Navy. One is the Skin Suit that you did very well, though the helmet needs to be able to be "racked" on the back of the command chair. The second it the usual duty uniform, a tunic in Black and Gold. I beg you to consider getting the design from the defunct table top game "House of Steel", it was perfect and you can get it cheap. It also has a cleaner art style the you should give consideration to if you intend to do animation in addition to live action in your movie options. Please also remember the colors, they are important and so are the uniform awards that will show up as the story continues. The stars are for hyper capable commands, not rank insignia. If you have to keep your design, please correct the colors and figure out how you will attach the rank, medals and ribbons to something that looks like an x-man costume. If you can do it and in the right colors I'll try and stop hyperventilating.

2: NIMITZ is "cute". He is overlooked as being dangerous by adults, small children love him and all tree cats because they are cute and fluffy. Nimitz is FLUFFY, remember Honor brushing him on the tropical prison planet because his very thick fur was torturing him in the tropical climate? He is a cat, not a Hexapuma that are black demons from hell. Please consider trying again. Consider that with a thick layer of fur he would be easier to animate since there would be some hidden motions. Also the tail has to be fluffy too as part of their survival during the Griffon winter. So a THICK fur coat.

Ok I realize I'm not your target audience of bringing in new people and this is a reboot similar to the recent Star Trek movies, but even they realized that you can't kick your guaranteed fans too hard or they will not buy the DVD, extended release Blue Ray, Toys, Ship Models, spinoffs etc. I am a loyal fan of David Weber, I am not yet a fan of your revision. I want to be.

I am not just being a hater. I didn't criticize the ship designs, I am trying to be accepting and even learn to love some of the alterations in time. I want to like what you are doing.

I can overlook the muddy art style though it is hard, I can hold my breath over the redesigns. But the Uniform and the Tree Cat are too central to the story to lose. The only thing worse would be to start messing with the names of the characters. You don't have to do it the way I "see" it, but make it look like you read the books, liked them and wanted to see them live. So far I see ego getting in the way of vision. Doing "My artwork" is not the same as great work with a talented group creating a living world that lifts us from out world into Honor's. The vision we love started with David, and he is a great and easy to get along with guy. His fans are a little more demanding. Please consider uniforms, especially colors, and TREE CATS. Make it easier for us to love what you do. Thank you for your attention and I hope these were constructive suggestions and not just frustration.
Good luck, keep trying, and there is still time.
Regards, Michael Lee Burgess

A re-imagining of a favorite character 13 décembre 2014
Par P. Motes - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Okay, since I have read many of the Honor Harrington books, I am not the intended audience for this book, which is a re-imagining of the Honor Harrington story. I very much prefer the original. But is it bad? Nope, it isn't. Honestly, the comic novel manages to get across quite a bit of the original, in very few pages. The pictures are not cartoons, but have quite a bit of detail. Especially interesting are the panels which explain how propulsion and weapons work in Honorverse.

In the Honor Harrington series, Weber always catalogs the devastation of warfare, but the visuals here are more dramatic than words alone. My main problem with Tales of Honor is the problem that fans often have with films—a disconnect between what I previously imagined and what I am seeing. This version of Honor is less beautiful, more menacing, and less subtly nuanced than the one in my imagination. And, the Nimitz in this book is unrecognizable. Really.

However, as a fan of HH and Weber, I am looking at these panels as elaborate story boards— a step toward seeing Honor on the silver screen.

For newbies, this approach will certainly introduce this most excellent character. Hopefully later volumes will flesh out the story and attract a wider audience to Honor Harrington's universe. Fans of comics and graphic novels should give this book a chance.

Not for fans of the novels. 13 décembre 2014
Par JFR - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I too found this comic to be a poor "re-imagining" of the wonderful original novels. Nimitz is unrecognizable, even for a work in progress. Other details are as bad. The often described Royal Manticoran Navy's "space black and gold" uniform has somehow become a weird grey trenchcoat kind of thing that is decidedly unmilitary, ugly and just wrong. Much of the story is slightly adapted or simply lifted straight from the novels so I can't find much fault there. The graphics, on the other hand, are not for the established fan. One wonders if the comic artists ever actually read the books.

For new readers who do not know the series I suspect it will do well. It is an exciting and interesting story, with lots of action and futuristic technology. As an established fan of the novels however, I am unlikely to buy future issues of the graphic series. It is just a poor substitute for the real thing.

Total misfire from the books 9 décembre 2014
Par Diana K. Thompson - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Will not be buying any more of these. The story line varies from the book too much and what they have done to Nimitz! From a small furry animal with 6 legs he is illustrated in this book as a flat black more demon looking! Nothing at all like the Nimitz David Weber has described in such detail in his books.
An Impressive Effort. 24 mars 2015
Par Dayton Lavon Kitchens - Publié sur
Format: Broché
Tales of Honor Volume 1 is a very impressive and exciting effort in promoting and expanding the story of Honor Harrington and the "Honorverse". I can understand critics unhappiness with the designs of the Honorverse ships and most especially the treecat Nimitz but given this is supposed to be a bit of a "dry run" for a potential television series I can see the publishers wanting to make the starships more distinctive and I believe that there are concerns that the treecats might be difficult to animate (presumably with CGI) if they remain much as David Weber described them which was basically as extremely cuddly overgrown six legged Tabbies so the decision was made to emphasize their alien nature.

And though most long time fans have fallen in love with David Weber's descriptions of the starships let's be honest. Most of them look very much a like so as to be nearly indistinguishable onscreen.

One thing I found impressive about the graphic novel was that the character of Honor manages to basically retell the whole story of the first novel with very few omissions in a relatively few number of pages. This bodes well for being able to do a movie or a tv series without losing whole portions of the back story.

As always the character of Honor remains immensely appealing as she steadily and reliably overcomes enemies both foreign and domestic. In a nice touch I noted the similarity in the appearances of Honor's obvious enemies such as Pavel Young and Denver Summervale.

Definitely recommended.
