GameOfThronesTheGraphicNovelVolumeThree.jpgHave made may posts about Game of Thrones show,  the book and the graphic novels.  Writing yet another one.  This time for a review for A Game of Thrones: The Graphic Novel: Volume Three.  Liked the first two volumes and like this one just as much.  What makes these great this is they use the book not the TV show for how people looks and plot points.  Mind you there are some things are the same.  Which is fine because you get to see how others interpreted they same story.  The art is all these volumes was drawn by one guy.  Which is a good thing to keep everything the same  looks thought out the story.

This is another awesome volume to read and collect.  These are as must have for any A Song of Fire and Ice fans and or Game of Thrones TV show.  The more there is in this world the better.  The only down side is there is only one more volume to come out.  Not sure when.  That will mark the end of the first book turned into a graphic novel.  All so not sure if they are going to keep the graphic novel interpretation going for the rest of  The Songs of Fire and Ice.  I hope they do.

A Game Of Thrones: The Graphic Novel Volume Two Review

GameOfThronesGraphicNovelVTwoHave finished reading A Game of Thrones: The Graphic Novel: Volume Two.  First off I real liked Volume One.  This one however is much better.  I think it is because it found it own path.  The first volume was to close to the TV show.  Volume two does a much better job turning the book into a graphic novel.  The world is more alive it pulls you in just like the books do.  Enjoyed reading this a lot.  The art has so much detail it awesome.  Because it is graphic novel they can show a lot more than the TV show can.

Volume two is much better than volume one.  Does an awesome job of bringing you into the world.  Now looking forward to volume three which will be out in March 2014.  Not sure how many volumes it will take to finished off the first book.   But it would be awesome if they kept it going with the other books in the series.

A Game Of Thrones: The Graphic Novel Volume One Review

Posted in Review's with tags , , , , , , , , , , on July 25, 2013 by getbent57

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.
