Présentation de l'éditeur

Novelist Daniel Abraham and illustrator Tommy Patterson are not merely turning George R. R. Martin's epic fantasy A Game of Thrones into a graphic novel: They are meticulously translating one art form into another, and capturing the intricate nuances of Martin's novels just as HBO is doing with the blockbuster series. The Abraham/Patterson collaboration is more than just a faithful adaptation. It is a labor of love-and a thrilling masterwork in its own right. Now, in the second volume, the sweeping action moves from the icy north, where the bastard Jon Snow seeks to carve out a place for himself among bitter outcasts and hardened criminals sworn to service upon the Wall . . . to the decadent south and the capital city of King's Landing, where Jon's father, Lord Eddard Stark, serves as the Hand of King Robert Baratheon amid a nest of courtly vipers . . . to the barbarian lands across the Narrow Sea, where the young princess Daenerys Targaryen has found the unexpected in her forced marriage to the Dothraki warlord Khal Drogo: love-and with it, for the first time in her life, power. Meanwhile, the dwarf Tyrion Lannister, accused by Lady Catelyn Stark of the attempted murder of her now-crippled youngest son, must call upon all his cunning and wit to survive when he is captured and imprisoned in the lofty dungeons of the Eyrie, where Lady Stark's sister-a woman obsessed with vengeance against all Lannisters-rules. But Catelyn's impulsive arrest of the Imp will set in motion a series of violent events whose outcome is fated to shake the world at the worst possible moment. For now is not the time for private feuds and bloodthirsty ambitions. Winter is coming . . . and with it, terrors beyond imagining.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 "OK" only (review of both Volume One & Volume Two) 14 février 2014
Par daniel lee - Publié sur Amazon.com

Unfortunately Martin's great work does not receive the work of illustration it requires. This work of illustration does not in fact match Martin's work in quality and is less well-adapted to Martin's many masterful character personalities and their development. It does not evoke any positive effect on one like me who has a long history of reading comics and graphic novels by some of the best and many of the run of the mill illustrators and colorists.

I am sorry if my comparison seems vague at first but when my wife read the first few pages of volume one I waited for her to eventually tell me her impression. It took more than a day before she gave me her unsolicited appraisal. She was quite disappointed. She found it uninteresting compared to the novel and to the HBO film series, both of which we deeply admire.

I then set before her for comparison Alan Moore's Watchmen (also a great novel in its own right), with illustrations and lettering by Dave Gibbons, and coloring by John Higgins to see what she thought. Immediately her comment was "that's what I was expecting!"
Additional examples of great illustration in a graphic novel form can be found in Miller's The Dark Knight Returns, with Klause Janson and Lynn Varley. Also the work of Moebius for The Incal, or Otomo's Akira make the comparison plain to see.

Why this illustrator would not wish to emulate the best in his own way is the failure of this work. We do not therefore have a graphic novel form of the Game of Thrones yet.

Even less well reviewed graphic novels in the DC or Marvel universe seem many times somehow to work well with the reader compared to Tommy Patterson's work in these first two volumes. Patterson's work fails to make the story, in "comic book" form, visually compelling. His illustrations are not able to show the distinctiveness of Martin's characters, which is the initial experience from page one all the way through. This could have been achieved in many ways as can be seen in the examples cited above. There is not one way to do this and the originality of the illustrator is free to choose.

Instead of giving the characters visual originality as they deserve they instead appear to blend into each other and never come to achieve a recognizabiltiy that is essential for this genre. Page after page I continued to struggle to determine who I am looking at and do this while trying to read the story. This is a problem of the page by page illustration work as a whole, and involves light and shadow, inking, color choice and pane divisions and spacing, characters and settings, knowing that Martin's universe is crowded with detail requiring thousands of pages to bring to fulfillment in traditional novel form.

I think this work shows, simply, how a graphic novel can be "OK only", that is, when the story is in fact an already well-known great story. I returned my hardcover purchases and Amazon was amazing about that. Kudos to them.
Respectfully submitted,
D Nagy

I have read all the books, my wife & I have seen all the seasons of the TV show. We both love the entire series. My wife is a huge fan of grahic novels so I thought I will buy the first two volumes for her to see how she likes it. She not only likes it, she loves it. The characters are very well done and the artistry is pretty cool. What better way to read a phenomenal story than as a graphic novel. Definitely waiting for Volume 3.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Interesting variation 3 juillet 2013

I am extremely addicted to the whole spectrum of Game of Thrones versions. While GOT fundamentalists may moan about how the HBO series and graphic novels differ from the book, I rejoice in the variations. Especially since it appears the series and graphic novel creators have made the changes specifically to leverage the strong points of their media, and have the cooperation of George RR Martin in making them.

And with the long indeterminate gaps between the books, and year long gaps between HBO series, it is nice to have the graphic novel episodes to help dull the withdrawal.
