I own the first volume and this is much in the same vein, they are a fantastic version of the A Song of Ice and Fire Series and I highly recommend them to anyone who is a fan of either the books or the TV series.

Here is the second part of this lavish adaption of the Game of Thrones novel. Everyone is getting into their stride and growing more confident and capable. This means less typos.

We also see this volume diverge from the TV show more. There is a marvellous ascent to the Eyrie that would have been cut from TV for budget and you would have thought would disappear here due to length. But it appears in all its glory. This level of micro-detail is as surprising as it is welcome and makes the world richer for it.

The hardback format returns and so to do the special features. If you have any inclination to create comics, in whatever role, it is your duty to read this. In this section we look at the entire transition process to the text of the original novel, through all the different stages, to the finished graphical masterpiece. Invaluably we get to see the creative discussions and see what techniques were tried and rejected. This peek behind the curtain is an anathema to many creative people so we are really privileged and can learn a lot.

The art and colour is sumptuous with each issue representing weeks if not months of work. Backgrounds are impossibly detailed and faces and heraldry receive superb attention. The boxes of narration are keyed to certain characters, just as they are in the source material, but black on red or black on brown is never a good idea.

This is another delightful volume that makes a good stepping stone for those who want more than TV but aren’t quite ready to give up their pretty pictures.

Thumbs Up!

Could not believe that this first class series of books was going to be printed in Graphic style.
Excellent quality and cant wait for the rest of the series.
I have already bought Volume 1 and pre ordered Volume 3.
Cant Wait!!!

This is pretty much what I always wanted. My only complaint is that some characters look too similar. The illustrator is definitely somewhat limited when it comes to faces! However you soon learn to dismiss this and enjoy what is an excellent translation of the book. No need to faff around like the tv series due to budget, time etc.

I bought this as a gift for a graphic novel fan. This is not the same as buying the actual book. But as a graphic novel is perfect.

Carries on where the first left off. We're still in Game of Thrones territory and the book is well scripted and beautifully drawn,
