Game of Thrones: The Graphic Novel

19 days to go to season 2…

Apparently someone has been making The Game of Thrones (as in the first book in the Song of Ice and Fire, not the all encompassing name) into a graphic novel.  The first collected volume will be published on March 27.

Game of Thrones: The Graphic Novel, vol 1; adapted by Daniel Abraham, illustrated by Tommy Patterson

Adapted by Daniel Abraham, illustrated by Tommy Patterson and covering the first six issues of the graphic novel, this looks to be a fascinating addition for anyone who is even slightly obsessed with the series. (As we all are, I’m sure)

One of the interesting things this version seems to be able to do that the HBO show cannot, is keep the characters their real ages.  Everyone in the books is significantly younger than they are on the show.  Which makes sense for a number of reasons: no one wants to see a 9 year-old girl kill someone or will believe anyone will follow a 14 or 15 year-old boy into battle.

Plus, a graphic novel doesn’t have the same budgetary constraints that a television show does. So we could see a world that is far more fantastical than we see on screen.  And the Targaryens will have their violet eyes.

Very curious about this…
