You’ve read the books. You’ve watched the hit series on HBO. Now acclaimed novelist Daniel Abraham and illustrator Tommy Patterson bring George R. R. Martin’s epic fantasy masterwork A Game of Thrones to majestic new life in the pages of this full-color graphic novel. Comprised of the initial six issues of the graphic series, this is the first volume in what is sure to be one of the most coveted collaborations of the year.   Winter is coming. Such is the stern motto of House Stark, the northernmost of the fiefdoms that owe allegiance to King Robert Baratheon in far-off King’s Landing. There Eddard Stark of Winterfell rules in Robert’s name. There his family dwells in peace and comfort: his proud wife, Catelyn; his sons Robb, Brandon, and Rickon; his daughters Sansa and Arya; and his bastard son, Jon Snow. Far to the north, behind the towering Wall, lie savage Wildings and worse—unnatural things relegated to myth during the centuries-long summer, but proving all too real and all too deadly in the turning of the season.   Yet a more immediate threat lurks to the south, where Jon Arryn, the Hand of the King, has died under mysterious circumstances. Now Robert is riding north to Winterfell, bringing his queen, the lovely but cold Cersei, his son, the cruel, vainglorious Prince Joffrey, and the queen’s brothers Jamie and Tyrion of the powerful and wealthy House Lannister—the first a swordsman without equal, the second a dwarf whose stunted stature belies a brilliant mind. All are heading for Winterfell and a fateful encounter that will change the course of kingdoms.   Meanwhile, across the Narrow Sea, Prince Viserys, heir of the fallen House Targaryen, which once ruled all of Westeros, schemes to reclaim the throne with an army of barbarian Dothraki—whose loyalty he will purchase in the only coin left to him: his beautiful yet innocent sister, Daenerys.

4.0 A Game of Thrones: The Graphic Novel, Vol. 1
While the artwork was beautiful and the story is the one we all know and love, I don't think graphic novels will ever really be my favorite. Don't get me wrong, it's a wonderful medium and I really enjoy the experience of having a beautiful drawing and some words convey a whole story, but my first l...

4.0 A Game of Thrones: The Graphic Novel, Vol. 1
Up to where Danerys's maid says she's pregnant, I'm enjoying this version more than the books, and possibly more than the TV series.

4.0 A Game of Thrones: The Graphic Novel: Volume One
I loved the visuals and I loved the different looks of the characters compared to the tv show. Will need to get ahold of the next volume as well.The foreword from George R. R. Martin was quite a good read as well with his little slips about comics vs graphic novels.

2.0 Review of A Game of Thrones Graphic Novel
I really love the novel A Game of Thrones. The detail is amazing, the characters have depth, the world is expansive. The graphic novel doesn't include any of the stuff that really makes me love the story. Of course it doesn't, it edits down a story that normally knocks on the door of 1000 pages (abo...
