Ha, I read all these novels last year... yes all 18 of them or whatever. Pretty cool he's got a spot on CV. Nice job Prurience Man!
I love R.A. Salvatore's novels. I buy every single one of them the day they come out, and have a couple of signed copies I found in a book store.
I'm glad they brought his story into the graphic media, I think he's a great character.
I needed a break from all my CrossGen subs, so I did Mary Marvel, and now I'll do Drizzt up to the point he's been published in comics so far. (Though its real tempting to just go ahead and keep telling his story since we know how the novels go.)
Thanks for the kudos. I appreciate it.
"Drizzt has two pages, http://www.comicvine.com/drizzt/41311/ is the other.Shouldn't publisher Devil be merged into Devil's Due?"
grrrrr.......Where did that come from. I did a search before I submitted, but I'll be danged if you didn't find it already existing. Yeah, these Drizzt pages should be combined, and Devil should be absorbed into Devil's Due.
Wonder why it didn't pop up when I searched. This is the second time in as many weeks that I've made that mistake.
"Man, the Drizzt pics I uploaded aren't working."
Yeah, I noticed that happened after the merge. Maybe you need to re-upload those pics and delete the broken ones.
A question though. Were those pics from the comics, or from some other source? I didn't recognize those as from the comics, but I haven't pulled all my issues back out yet to check, so I wasn't sure.
"They looked like they were drawn in a comic-style."
Yeah, but if we're not certain they are from the comic itself, or promotional stuff from the comic's publisher, we might not want to include them.
But then again, we do have galleries of non-comic artwork such as fan-art and cartoon captures on some of our pages. Plus, we have galleries from live action movies. So, in retrospect, we could include the non-comic art (I love Todd Lockwood's paintings of Drizzt) as long as we label the gallery correctly.
This..this is the remains of one of the best posters on CV in it's start. And what an amazing biography it was.
I'm pretty sure that it doesn't matter much since he hasn't been on in a while and he might not come back, but wow. Just-wow. This is simply amazing. That's all I can say.
If any of you have not read the actual books about Drizzt by R.A. Salvatore I strongly suggest them. I have read each and every one of them more than once and enjoy them each time. The fight scenes in them are brilliant and you get some well developed characters to follow for 20 books. It is truley epic in my opinion.
The comics do a great job in scaleing the books, but there just isn't enough room in them to get a full appreciation of the story's being told.
"I'm just not looking forward to spending another $250 to get my whole set to match."
Yeah I can understand that. That's one of the reasons I make sure I buy the new ones the day they come out. At the store I go to thier 40% off on the opening day.
I will agree with everyone that this is an awesome page, but PS did a TERRIBLE job writing it as far as tense goes. Part of what I have been doing is reading the paragraphs and putting them into only past or present tense, because it switches almost every other sentence. I'm going insane trying to perfect it.
But it's all worth it, and Drizzt is finally at #1 on swordsmanship like he should be.
