For those of you who are following news about the forthcoming A Game of Thrones HBO series and George R.R. Martin's novels in general, there is something else now.
A graphic adaptation of the novels is being put together as you read this, and it's going to be published in a monthly basis in paperback format. The comics are going to be scripted by Daniel Abraham, as Martin himself says in his Not a Blog, and drawn by Tommy Patterson. He is the one who has drawn the sketches at the top of this entry (click on them for a higher resolution), and they look pretty good.
As Martin says, the first issue of this adaptation is going to be released in late spring 2011.
