Game Of Thrones #1 - Daniel Abraham, George R.R. Martin
This comic book was slightly disappointing. I think it's partly due to having seen and read this particular part of the series so often, but also because the storytelling felt a bit rigid to me. If I wasn't already acquainted with the story, it would've been impossible for me to grasp what the hell was going on and who was who exactly. This came as a surprise because I've read some of Daniel Abraham's other work and loved it.

Then there's the artwork. I was disappointed in that as well. Maybe it's because the characters' faces don't resemble the actors from the series, but that's something which shouldn't be too much of a bother once you just focus on the story. I think it has more to do with the fact that all characters of  the same sex look so much alike. And then there is the depiction of their ages; some of them look either a lot older or younger than they actually should be. Take Viserys Targaryen. He should be 22 years old, if I'm correct, yet looks like he's in his 40's or even older.


That being said, I still enjoyed reading it because, hey, it's Game of Thrones and I love the books to bits. 3 stars for this one.
