In 1989, originally in three parts, David T. Wenzel's graphic novelization of The Hobbit was published. It was bound as one in January 1990, and a revised edition was published in 2006.

David T. Wenzel provided the artwork for the story by J.R.R. Tolkien, adapted by Charles Dixon. It is hand-lettered by Bill Pearson.

From the Publisher (revised edition)

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 stolen treasure.

It is a journey fraught with danger - and in the end Bilbo alone must face the guardian of the treasure, the most dreaded dragon in all Middle-earth...

J.R.R. Tolkien's enchanting prulude to The Lord of the Rings is one of the best-loved books of all time. Carefully abridged and beautifully painted, David Wenzel's graphic novel has become a best-selling classic in its own right.

With more than 30 pages of new artwork and improvements by the artist, this new revised edition has been newly rescanned from the original paintings to produce the most authentic version ever published, to delight Hobbit fans old and new.
