A Game of Thrones Comic Sale

1 post in this topic

Over the course of three years, the novel <em>A Game of Thrones</em> was adapted to the graphic form by writer <a href=“http://www.danielabraham.com/”>Daniel Abraham</a> and artist <a href=“http://comicvine.gamespot.com/tommy-patterson/4040-56598/”>Tommy Patterson</a>. 24 issues in total, it hews very closely to the novel that started off the <em>A Song of Ice and Fire</em> series, not least because Abraham had weekly lunches with Martin during the process during which they discussed adaptation issues. In fact, in an <a href=“http://www.comicbookresources.com/?id=34496&page=article”>interview</a>, the writer revealed that he had learned of a connection between an early line of dialogue and the end of the series:

</div>

<div class=“Quote”>
“There was one scene I had to rework because there’s a particular line of dialog—and you wouldn’t know it to look at—that’s important in the last scene of ‘A Dream of Spring.’”
</div>

Suffice it to say, many have <a href=“http://asoiaf.westeros.org/index.php?/topic/111491-the-quest-for-daniel-abrahams-particular-line-of-dialog/”>tried to figure out</a> what the line might be. And for those who haven’t had the chance to read the comic? It turns out that Comixology has you covered because of their <a href=“https://www.comixology.com/Game-of-Thrones-Plus-Bundle/bundle/1373”>massive bundle</a> of an assortment of comics which includes the first four issues of <em>A Game of Thrones</em>, as well as issues of <em>Robert Jordan’s The Wheel of Time</em> and the <em>Pathfinder</em> comic based on the roleplaying game setting. The 18 comic bundle is just $2.99 in the US, (2.69 euros in Europe!), and as it happens it’s very likely that the dialog Abraham was speaking of is in one of those first <em>A Game of Thrones</em> issues.

For those who have the comics, or get the bundle, feel free to comment below as to which line(s) in the comic are connected to the finale of the <em>A Song of Ice and Fire</em> series!
