This is a world of magic, and Rand is not dealing with a normal mental illness but one caused by magical corruption. In fact, we see what must be a magical protection for him later when Nynaeve looks at the way the taint has settled on his mind.
The comics were actually being done by Chuck Dixon. He did New Spring and The Eye Of The World. I do not know if he is doing the rest of them. I heard he was, but I have not heard much since Dynamite failed.
I own Volume One of The Eye Of The World and I really enjoy it. But that is me.
But your attempt looks really interesting!! I hope you do it. By the way, if you get to A Memory of Light, the fight between Rand and the Dark One, I hope it is Final Crisis unleashed. That book is awesome!!
