JORDAN MECHNER reads from TEMPLAR

Templar (First Second)

Prince of Persia creator is coming by Skylight Books to read and sign his new graphic novel.

In the new graphic novel Templar, Martin is one of a handful of Templar Knights to escape when the king of France and the pope conspire to destroy the noble order. The pope and king aim to frame the Templars for heresy, execute all of them, and make off with their legendary treasure. That's the plan, anyway, but Martin and several other surviving knights mount a counter-campaign to regain the lost treasure of the Knights Templar.

With gorgeous illustrations by LeUyen Pham and Alexander Puvilland and lush coloring from Hilary Sycamore, this 480-page, full-color, hardcover graphic novel by Jordan Mechner is itself a treasure.

Acclaimed author, screenwriter, and video game designer Jordan Mechner began his career by creating the blockbuster games Karateka and Prince of Persia. He became the first game-creator-turned-screenwriter to adapt his own work as a major motion picture with Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time. Mechner has published his game development journals from the 1980s as a book, The Making of Prince of Persia. His most recent book is the medieval heist caper told in graphic novel format, Templar.  Mechner was born in New York and attended Yale University.
