I won't read another or any other in this series. The cruelty of the last pages finally tipped over into too-much. The GRAPHICS, however, merit all the stars. These imaginary places are so vivid! The towers, the walls, the wolves, glittering: but I cannot stomach the meanness. That's it. ( )

I guess my Volume One comment about the artist needing to work on facial expressions was right on, since Tommy Patterson acknowledges the fact himself in the bonus content of this issue.

However, Volume Two is light on emotional dialogues and heavy on battles and skirmishes, real and pretend. We get a look at the Hand's tourney, Catelyn's party trying to survive the mountain tribe onslaught, Ned's guard getting assaulted by the Lannisters and Jon's training in the Night's Watch. Patterson is pretty good with these action shots, though I still maintain he is at his most excellent when doing panoramic or crane shots that include architectural detail. Once the action shots and the panoramic view come together in a single panel, the results can be pretty amazing (see, for example, the tourney introduction full page panel).

The bonus content of Volume Two is great. It contains a detailed look into the creation process, from Abraham's first draft script, to editor's corrections, to Patterson's penciling, Dillon's lettering and finally Nunes' coloring. Quite an involved process, to be sure. ( )

[b: A Game of Thrones: The Graphic Novel|12962439|A Game of Thrones The Graphic Novel, Vol. 1|Daniel Abraham||18120108] reading continues and... continues to not greatly impress me. While it's nice to see an alternative adaptation to the television show, the artwork of these graphic novels really doesn't appeal to me. The style is too close to the typical anime/manga style to feel truly medieval or otherworldly and some of the designs are so egregious as to be downright disturbing. In particular, the direwolves look less like wolves than they do like blobs of color with muppet muzzles. It's... not great.

That having been said, the books are somewhat saved by the accuracy of the adaptation from book to comic. The plot is closer to that of the books than the show, and much of the dialogue is lifted straight from the book itself. The pacing is decent, and in particular the attention to detail when it comes to rendering the settings is quite good. The Vale and Riverrun, for instance, are both rather great. The Iron Throne itself is the insanely massive, nearly comical, thing that it was in the books and other artistic renditions. All of this is nicely in its favor.

Nothing, however, could really save me from the character designs. The characters don't look so much related as they do traced from the same basic design. Renly, Theon, and Jon might as well be the same person - as would Gendry, were it not for his haircut. Sansa and Catelyn are essentially clones, which would work a bit well were they heights not also quite similar. Lancel and Joffrey, likewise, are indistinguishable - with the occasional Viserys thrown into that mixture as well.

I wanted to enjoy these, and on some level I did, just not quite the way I would have liked to have enjoyed them. ( )

I think I took so long reading this because it felt like I was going backward in the story. I read this in the novel a looong time ago and watched it on the show ... why did I feel like I needed to relive it? Who the hell knows why I do anything, honestly. But I will tell you one thing: this book stunk. For real. Like mildew. Which was another reason I didn't want to read it, I suppose.
The content was old, and the book literally smelled old. Not a good combo. ( )

Second volume (of four) of a graphic adaptation of George R. R. Martin's [8366::A Game of Thrones]. This is a fairly straight-forward adaptation of the original work and I appreciated that the artists have gone out of their way not to copy the imagery of the TV-series but rather depend on the descriptions from the original novel. The art is proficient rather than exciting and the coloring is very enjoyable. I wouldn't replace reading the novel with these books, but they do provide a slightly different twist on the story. They would have been infinitely more interesting had the TV-series not existed, and I have to say if you're picking one over the other, go with the live-action version. The extra material consists of excellent "behind-the-scenes" materials about the creation of the graphic novels (mechanical as well as creative) from the writers, artists, and editors. ( )
