- Posted in Robin Hobb news by

There will be a new comic book adaptation of the Farseer trilogy, and this time it will be published in English! Long time readers might remember that there was a French graphic novel adaptation that was published between 2008-2016. It covered the whole trilogy in 10 volumes and even got a Dutch translation.

This time, Dark Horse Comics has announced a six volume adaptation. The first volume, Assassin's Apprentice #1, is set to be published on the 14th of December 2022. It is co-written by Jody Houser and the rest of the creative team includes artist Ryan Kelly, colourist Jordie Bellaire and letterer Hassan Otsmane-Elhaou. Cover art for the first part is by Anna Steinbauer.
