Dynamite Relaunches Game Of Thrones Comic With New #1 In Middle Of Adaptation

Dynamite Entertainment has been adapting George R.R. Martin’s A Song Of Ice And Fire series into comics since 2011. They launched their adaptation of the second book A Clash Of Kings in June 2017 with the most recent issue, #18, releasing February 2019. Up until then, only half the book had been adapted. The publisher is relaunching with a new #1 issue while adapting the back half of the book.

The “new” series will be written by Landry Q. Walker with artist Mel Rubi, colorist Ivan Nunes, and letterer Tom Napolitano.

“As we head into the second half of this adaptation, I believe we will see some of the strongest work on the title to date. We are on the precipice of some of the most pivotal scenes set in George R.R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire – Danerys’ exploration of the House of the Undying, the Battle of the Blackwater, and much more,” said writer Landry Q. Walker. “Breaking this novel down word by word, chapter by chapter, you really get a sense of how meticulously layered the work is, and how the tension between these warring families slowly spirals out of control. Bringing those story beats to their climax, and having the privilege to help guide the visual interpretation of one of the most popular fantasy series, it’s an experience beyond description. I can’t wait to share that experience with readers.”

George R.R. Martin’s A Clash of Kings #1 is set to release January 2020.
