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.

Tumblr is by no means a perfect website. Some users think it's perfectly acceptable to tell people to kill themselves for disagreeing about their opinions on anything (whether it's pop culture or politics) but a lot of other tumblr users call them out that and that kind of behavior wasn't unknown on LiveJournal.

I only speak for myself, here, but I left Westeros.org because I was tired of seeing posts about how Sansa and Catelyn deserved to be sexually assaulted. If that's someone's opinion, they're certainly entitled to it, but it's one I'd rather not read.

If Westeros ever did allow "rape Sansa" posts, I suspect it was a long time ago. Admittedly, I don't follow the fan sites, I have too much else to do, but I can't imagine Elio and Linda and X-Ray and their crack team of moderators letting such posts stand today. There is much to be said for moderated forums.

Re: House Martell Casting
I have been on Westeros for about a year and have never seen any type of "rape Sansa" topic. Sansa is very loved around there. There has been an increase of people joining to start trouble, but Elio, Linda, and all the rest of the mods are great with that type of stuff. I'm not sure why so many people are put off by Westeros, but it really is a great place.
