GameOfThronesGraphicNovel.jpgFinished reading A Game of Thrones: The Graphic Novel: Volume One so now it’s time for a review.  First off this graphic novel is an adaption of the book A Game of Thrones.   They say that so it will not be confused with the HBO TV show.  Both being based on the same book there will be some things that are the same.  In some of the panels and scenes from the show are so close it looks like they were copied off each other.  While I did like reading this it just seemed to miss out on what makes the book and TV show so awesome.  That being said that is very hard to turn such a big and complicated book into a comic book.  For that they did an awesome job.  Just can’t  see non-TV/book fans buying these graphic novels,  Volume One or Volume Two.  Say this because it doesn’t do a good job bringing you into to the world and introducing the characters.

Enjoyed reading this graphic novel very much.  Have now started reading volume two.  Will being buying a copy of volume three when it comes out in March 2014.  Don’t think non fans of the books or show will becomes fans of the novels.  But fans of one or two of those are going to like this adaption.
