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.

Re: House Martell Casting
Wow, I'm so happy to have received a response from you. I admire your work a great deal, and participating in this fandom has been such a rewarding experience for me.

You have written a wide range of female characters who show a great deal of agency despite the society they live in, which absolutely drew me into this series. They certainly ARE realistic enough characters to inspire strong emotions, even hatred. And I am totally okay with meeting fans who hate Sansa because she's naive, idealistic, painstakingly courteous, but also has inconveniently timed moments of rebellion and stubbornness.

When I run into fans who hate Sansa because she isn't more grateful Tyrion didn't rape her (or who think Sansa "owes" Tyrion sex because he's such a great guy), fans who think Cersei "deserves" to be hit by Robert because she's ambitious, then I have a problem. And discussions like that are what drove me out of the more mainstream ASoIaF discussion boards.
