I need to share this….

This link to an artist’s rendering of the first chapter of J. R. R. Tolkien’s The Silmarillion as a comic was posted today on a theological discussion blog. It absolutely floored me, and I have to share–

Warning– don’t read the comic while listening to intense music, as I did (chiefly Patrick Cassidy’s Funeral March and the central portion of Hans Zimmer’s The Thin Red Line suite) unless you’re prepared to be reduced to tears.

Tolkien was a genius, and this is a great visual rendering of his words.
