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.

Something you should check out
Hey I just wanted to say that I love your books and personally I think that when it comes to creating characters you are unparalleled. I bring this up to show my appreciation for the hours of joy you have given me, and because theres another group doing work that hit me just as hard as did that thing in A dance with dragons. You know the one. The Walking Dead by telltale games is on of the finest examples of storytelling I have ever seen, and I am begging you to ask telltale to make a game of thrones game. I would reccomend you play the games, as they are short, but you are most likely incredbily busy. I know this all seems somewhat pandering but screw it, if theres a chance you check out the walking dead because of this then I feel we will have one of the best storytelling experiences in any media and I say that without restraint.

Thanks. I hear you.

We do have several cool GAME OF THRONES videogames out already -- an RTS and RPG from Cyanide, a social game from Disruptor Beam, and an MMORPG forthcoming from Big Point.

But I heard good things about Telltale Games.

Re: Something you should check out
I can't find it right now, but Telltale did say a year or so back that they'd love to take a crack at GAME OF THRONES, but were snowed under with other projects for the forseeable future, so I don't think any formal approaches have been made (or are likely to be in the future).
