Dynamite Entertainment has been publishing George R. R. Martin’s famous prose novel series as a monthly comic books since 2011, but now after a two year hiatus, A Game of Thrones returns to comics with A Clash of Kings.
The events in the book series that will be included in this comics series focus on Arya in her escape from King’s Landing with a brother of the Night’s Watch, on Sansa trapped in the company of King Joffrey, and on Bran, who dreams his strange dreams of Wolves in Winterfell.
Dynamite CEO and Publisher, Nick Barrucci says:
We are creating great comics with George, Anne, and everyone involved on his prose team, and are excited to welcome Landry Q. Walker and our very own Mel Rubi, whose work graced Red Sonja for years, as the new creative team. We are honored to be a part of one of the most exciting franchises of our time, and continue to bring the best talent to adapting these masterpieces of fantasy.
Landry Q. Walker (Batman: The Brave and the Bold) and Mel Rubi (Red Sonja, X-Men) are working in conjunction with George R.R. Martin’s creative team to adapt the novel.
Landry Q. Walker says:
For readers, I believe this comic will create an opportunity to see A Clash of Kings retold in a manner that adheres to the original visions of George R. R. Martin, while exploring what his story looks like through his eyes. We’re working hard to create a faithful visual adaptation of the novel that uses the strength of the medium of comics to it’s fullest capacity, and I cannot wait for readers to see what we have done.
George R.R. Martin’s A Clash of Kings #1 appears in the April 2017 Previews catalog and will be released in June.
