Comic of ASOIAF

Ive been quite disappointed in the interior artist, Tommy Patterson. And the writer that adapted the story spent to much time in issue one on the prologue, which meant the beheading scene and direwolf finding scenes were cut and crammed into one or two pages, and spent more time on Dany. I felt the writer boiled down the direwolf and beheading scene down to just to much. Leaving little way to introduce the Starks. As that chapter really told a lot about the Starks. But I guess we'll get some more about them in the next two issues. Tommy Pattersons rendition of Winterfell was really really bland and not in that bleak wintery northern westeros way, just lacked any detail.
Ive seen the next few covers from Mike and I tell you they look gorgeous. I'm almost completely sure the only reason issue #1 sold out was because of hype. Now that everyone seen the inside and the adaptation sales will slow down.

Six you can see in this auction:
A Dynamic Forces "Black & White" cover:
A New York Comic Con exclusive cover which will be out at the con in a few weeks. It's pictured in the back of the first issue.
And a second printing variant cover is coming:

Yup. I read Daniel Abraham's adaptation of Fevre Dream and found the pacing extremely awkward.
And Patterson's art is just too generic - in the books, every character feels unique, no matter how minor. But with Patterson they all look like Cloned Fantasy Californians.
Don't think I'll bother with #2, to be honest.

I've purchased 3, but won't be collecting them, sounds like a joke to me, and most are not new art at all.
Thank you for the replies.

Here's the part that really had me just *facepalm*
Tommy Patterson: To be honest I wasn’t aware of the series until I was trying out for the job. It took about a week of research to realize how huge this thing really is.
**Note**Tommy has a incredibly hard time drawing emotion in characters faces. All of them have practically emotionless faces. Costuming is very bland...

I've decided to get all the versions of #1, but after that I'm only getting the regular covers (and the eventual HC collections). Dynamite just does too many variants.

Guess I'll try to get all of them until I can't afford it any longer.

Does anyone know if the 2nd print of #2 will have the "non-inked" Mike Miller cover? As far as I'm aware it hasn't been available yet, and I've only seen pictures of this cover pop up since the 2nd printing was announced.

The first novel is covered in 24 comics (over 2 years), so tbh, not a lot is covered in each.
The first comic ends with Dany meeting Drogo.
