Users who pulled this comic:


  1. I am obsessed with all things Game of Thrones, so yeah, I got it. I really liked the Hedge Knight adaptations, so this could be good, but I suspect that in the end I won’t need a third medium to enjoy this story in.

    • Your last sentence just summed this up for me. Read the books, watched the show.. just didn’t need this as much as i thought i would. kinda bummed about that.

  2. I am definitely looking forward to this book. I hope that it is done well.

  3. I was stoked for this, but the preview that came out the other day looks pretty bad. Oh well, I’m pulling it.

  4. For some reason Barnes and Noble was already selling this, so I bought it early. I am a huge Song of Ice and Fire fan, so I am on board for this regardless. The first issue isn’t a great adaptation, but it isn’t that bad. I have a feeling that having to work around the sex and language will hurt the comic adaptation in the long run. Never-the-less its great fun to see the characters and locations drawn and depicted in the art. So I am totally in this for the long haul, for better or worse, I hope it continues, takes its time, and doesn’t skip anything.

  5. Thats a lot of material to cover in one issue. Anyone know how many pages this is? Also is this a regular monthly publishing schedule?
