This is a brand new revised edition of the best-selling graphic novel based on the enchanting prelude to "The Lord of the Rings".

First published in 1990, David Wenzel's comic book adaptation of J.R.R.

Tolkien's "The Hobbit" was an immediate success and has become one of the best-loved graphic novels of the last 20 years. "The Hobbit" is the story of Bilbo Baggins, a quiet and contented hobbit whose life is turned upside down when he joins the wizard Gandalf and thirteen dwarves on their quest to reclaim their stolen treasure.

It is a journey fraught with danger - and in the end it is Bilbo alone who must face the guardian of this treasure, the most-dreaded dragon, Smaug.

Illustrated and hand painted in full colour throughout, and accompanied by the carefully abridged text of the original novel, this handsome authorised edition will introduce new generations to a magical masterpiece - and be treasured by Hobbit fans of all ages, everywhere.This new edition has been completely re-scanned from the original paintings to achieve more accurate and vibrant colours of any edition, with David Wenzel revisiting the work to provide sensitive improvements and additions to the original edition.

The book includes a magnificent and completely new cover design by Wenzel himself.
