We're Number One...

... 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.

The day the first collection came out, the bookstore I bought it at didn't even realize they had it in the back waiting to go out onto the shelves until I forced someone to go look for them; now the second volume has debuted at #1 and apparently I'm the last one to hear about its release. There's some strange irony or something going on there. I can't believe they didn't mention this last week when I picked up my copy of the latest (usually) monthly issue at the comic shop; guess I'll be picking mine up later this week.

Anyhow, congratz to you and the comic book team! It's good to see I'm not the only one buying this adaptation in its various forms.

ASoIaF is my favourite series but I really enjoy Daniel Abraham's work too, so there was really never any question that I'd be picking these up. That, plus I'm basically locked into an ever-growing All Things Ice & Fire collection (the books in hard and soft covers, the miniatures, the comics/GN's, the Dunk & Egg stories & GN's...) Pretty much anything that isn't as expensive as the Valyarian Steel replicas, really. Or the stuff in the HBO store, which sadly doesn't seem to be available in Canada.
