When dealing with a masterpiece, only the best will do. That’s why writer Daniel Abraham and illustrator Tommy Patterson were chosen to adapt George R. R. Martin’s beloved fantasy classic A Game of Thrones as a graphic novel. And as anyone who has read the previous two collected volumes of the ongoing series can attest, the result has been a stunning tour de force faithful in every respect to its brilliant original. In King’s Landing, Lord Eddard Stark of Winterfell—the Hand of King Robert Baratheon—is surrounded by enemies. Some are openly declared, such as Ser Jaime Lannister and his sister, Queen Cersei. Others are hidden in the shadows. Still others wear the smiling mask of friends. But all are deadly, as Eddard is about to discover. Nor is the enmity between Eddard and the Lannister siblings the sole source of friction between these powerful noble families. For Tyrion Lannister, the Imp—whose stunted, twisted body houses the mind of a genius—has but lately won his freedom from Lady Catelyn Stark, Eddard’s wife, who had accused him of attempting to murder her youngest son, Brandon. Now he seeks out his father, his restless thoughts bent on revenge. Far to the north, the bastard Jon Snow, newly sworn to the Night’s Watch, takes the first faltering steps toward a destiny stranger than he could ever dream—a destiny that will bring him face-to-face with unspeakable horrors from beyond the edge of the world. While across the Narrow Sea, Daenerys Targaryen, wed to the great Dothraki warlord Khal Drogo, and pregnant with his child—a son prophesied to conquer the world—will see her own destiny take an unforeseen turn.

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...

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.
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.
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...
