We're Number One...

greyjoy
... in graphic novels.

The second volume of the GAME OF THRONES graphic novel debuted at #1 on the New York Times bestseller list:

(And, hey, the following week's list is out, and we're still number one).

My thanks and congratulations to Daniel Abraham (who wrote the script) and Tommy Patterson (who drew the pictures) and Mike S. Miller (who did the covers). They do all the real work on this one. This is their triumph, much more than mine.

I'm glad so many of you are enjoying the funny book.

I pick up the Comic on a monthly basis but of course I pick up the collections as well.

Really enjoyed the forward and reminiscing about classic Illustrated. My Teacher used to buy them and leave them in the classroom as a "Gateway Drug" to reading the real thing...and it worked!

I have fond memories of CLASSICS ILLUSTRATED myself...

That came through in your Forward!

I didn't buy many as a kid as I had a finite budget and there were SO many Superhero Comics!:)

Still the ones I did have were always good to show Mom I wasn't just wasting my time reading "Funny Books" :)

I'm currently reading the GOT GN while ALSO re-reading the Original Novel...I will refrain from watching the 1st season of the show also as I don't want to be responsible for creating a rift in the Time-Space Continuum! ;)
