Bantam Books is set to announce that it has acquired the comic-book and graphic novel rights to George R. R. Martin’s hugely popular A Song of Ice and Fire series. The first of the monthly comic books — to be illustrated by Tommy Paterson and adapted by Daniel Abraham — is due out later this spring, as is the HBO adaptation of the first book in the series, Game of Thrones. Dynamic Entertainment will issue the comic books and Bantam will later collect them in graphic-novel form. While we all wait for this influx of Games-related stuff, here are some preliminary comic sketches for characters Jon Snow and Tyrion Lannister to tide us over. They’re after the jump.
Game of Thrones fans, I’d love for you to weigh in. Will you be reading the novels in comic book form?
