Good day, everyone! I hope you’ve seen the latest episode of Game of Thrones from June 1st, since this post contains all sorts of spoilers for it. You’ve been warned.
If you are a book reader like I am, you knew what was coming, but that in no way destroyed the tension for you. I honestly hoped against everything that the Red Viper might somehow make it out alive where so many other characters have not. I know I couldn’t have been alone in that hope. I suppose the best any of us can do is remember the character for how great he was.
Comic artist Jeff McComsey has taken things a step further and illustrated the duel based upon descriptions in the original novel, A Storm of Swords—the third installment in A Song of Ice and Fire.
Check out his 12-page effort.
As a lover of comics books, especially bold work in a unique style, I am elated to see one of my favorite moments from one of my favorite novels illustrated so faithfully. If someone hasn’t considered it already, McComsey should be contacted about the ongoing project to turn Martin’s Dunk and Egg novellas into comic books. I’m sure he could contribute quite a bit to that.
