The Exile: An Outlander Graphic Novel is the first graphic novel based on the Outlander series by Diana Gabaldon, a New York Times best-selling author. The script was written by Diana Gabaldon. The artwork was created by artist Hoang Nguyen.
This graphic novel features characters from Outlander, Gabaldon's first novel, including:
- Claire Beauchamp Randall: a 20th century Englishwoman. After an encounter with a stone circle, she finds herself transported through time to the Scottish Highlands in the mid-18th century.
- James Alexander Malcolm MacKenzie Fraser: A young Scot from the mid-18th century, also known as "Jamie".
- Murtagh Fitzgibbons Fraser: A loyal member of the Clan MacKenzie/Fraser. He has sworn to protect Jamie since he was an infant.
A New Approach
Events in The Exile coincide with several events of the first novel, Outlander. Gabaldon has said of the graphic novel:
- "...we do indeed get to see all the things that Claire didn’t see, wasn’t privy to, or didn’t understand–which means that there’s a whole new storyline weaving through the events that you’ll recognize from OUTLANDER."
