Game of Thrones (Graphic Novel)
Game of Thrones is the story of seven noble families that fight for control of the mythical land of Westeros. Fans of the HBO television series, Game of Thrones, and fans of George R.R. Martin’s fantasy books series will be sure to love this graphic novel. If you have read George R.R. Martin’s series you’ll appreciate the way that Daniel Abraham (the adapter) and Tommy Patterson (the artist) have kept to the authenticity of the book.
Some of the things that were written out of the movie adaptation are carefully depicted in the graphic novel. One example is that the Dothraki wear their hair in long braids and when they are defeated they must shave their heads. Khal Drogo has long braids because he has never been defeated in combat and in the book he wears bells in his braids so that his enemies can hear him coming. The television series didn’t include the bells because they caused too much of a distraction during the performances.
I admit that I fell in love with the movie first but I’m ready to tackle the science fiction novels now. There are so many characters and storylines that it is hard to keep them all straight but having the graphic novel actually helped me put names to faces and to become more attached to the characters. If you like science fiction and medieval times, this is the story for you.
Warning: This is an adult graphic novel and does contain some scenes of nudity not intended for children.
