wonderful

amazing book

Mostly enjoyable

I found the Game of Thrones graphic novel to be a fast, entertaining read. Having read all of the books before watching the TV series, I appreciate some of the details being included in the graphic novel that were left out of the show. I believe I will enjoy reading further installments of the graphic novel.
That said, I’m iffy on some of the illustration. I think it’s well done, but the style in which many of the characters were drawn feels a touch too cartoony for me in some regards. Many of the characters look very... cute.

The novels are wonderful and the show is great. But this graphic novel interpretation is a major let-down.

Collects the first six issues.

Full disclosure: I've read the novels--the real ones--several times. So when I say that the graphic novel is not good, it's possible that it's suffering (badly) by comparison.

That said, it is not good. The plot keeps lurching forward ungracefully, the narration is dull, and the art--while pretty--told the story in a boring, uninspired fashion. I won't be picking up v2.
