The Colour of Magic is a comic fantasy novel by Terry Pratchett. It is the first of the Discworld series and was published in 1983. The idea of The Colour of Magic - that all that happens is due to the gods' gambling Γ?? is somewhat similar to traditional role-playing games, in that the roll of the dice determines what happens to the characters.
This is a graphic novel based on the fantasy novel, illustrated by Steven Ross and adapted by Scott Rockwell. It was published by Corgi in 1992. The graphic novel is split up into several chapters like the book, and is faithful to the source material in that it is built up like classic barbarian stories (in this case comics a la Red Sonja).
Crucial differences between the book and comic include the cutting-out of some of the adventures in Ankh-Morpork and Krull. Also, in the book, the female Dragonriders are described as being topless, as barbarian women in fiction tend to be. However, to keep the graphic novel kid-friendly, the women wear chain-mail bras as well as the clothing described in the book.
