It’s out! It’s gorgeous, it’s thrilling, and it’s  . . . hefty!

In fact, it may be THE biggest full-color graphic novel yet published, clocking in at almost 500 pages.



This stunner has the spirited swashbuckling flair of Alexander Dumas, a heist caper worthy of Ocean’s Eleven, and the epic sweep and immersive historical wonder of Pillars of the Earth. That, and the high-octane inspiration of its creative dream team: Jordan Mechner, LeUyen Pham, and Alex Puvilland. You can follow the link in their names to their respective websites—all chock full of exquisite and brilliant stuff.

And be sure and visit the Templar Tumblr page, and catch a glimpse of this bold and beautiful and glorious book.

A word from Westeros:

“With TEMPLAR, Jordan Mechner combines true flair for classic adventure with a firm grasp of medieval history, for an unforgettable tale of love, gold and glory. And Pham and Puvilland bring their strong individual style to bear on 14th-century France with gorgeous art that is both clean and lush at the same time. Put them together and you’ve got yourself a winner. Michael Curtiz should have been so lucky.”
    —David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, creators of HBO’s GAME OF THRONES
