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 colouring from Hilary Sycamore, this 480-page, full-colour, hardcover graphic novel 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. Templar includes the first book of the trilogy, Solomon's Thieves, previously published separately in paperback by First Second. Mechner was born in New York and attended Yale University. LeUyen Pham and Alex Puvilland have not only illustrated Templar, but also Prince of Persia, the graphic novel, with Jordan Mechner and A.B. Sina. Alex works for DreamWorks Animation as a visual development artist, and LeUyen is the illustrator of over forty books for children, including the Freckleface Strawberry series by Julianne Moore, the Alvin Ho Series by Lenore Look, and her own All the Things I Love About You.
