Dunk & Egg Conquer Kindle


The graphic novel, that is.  Scripted by Ben Avery, illustrated by Mike S. Miller, it has been out of print for years in its original editions from Marvel and DBPro, and fetching ever higher prices on ebay, but now at last there is a brand new edition for those who want to read Dunk & Egg's second adventure without paying collector's prices for it.  Jet City Comics released their own edition of THE HEDGE KNIGHT II: THE SWORN SWORD on January 22, in both digital and print formats.   You'll find the paper editions on sale at your favorite local bookstore or comics shop.  The electronic version is available for Kindle from Amazon at



So far, the response has been great.  Both the physical and digital editions debuted on Amazon as #1 in Comics & Graphic Novels: Fantasy, ahead of many great works.  And the physical edition rose to the Top 600 in Books.

The graphic novel of THE HEDGE KNIGHT also saw a boost, rising to #2 in Comics & Graphic Novels: Fantasy.

And Jet City published a new interview with Mike S. Miller about his experience working on both projects.

 Meanwhile, over at Random House, Ben Avery and Mike S. Miller are reportedly hard at work on a graphic novel adaptation of the third Dunk & Egg novella, "The Mystery Knight."  More on that one down the line.

I didn't realize...
Did not know these were part of the GoT books so to speak. Enjoying greatly the main books now. Currently on A Feast for Crows. I had decided HBO's GoT series to be simply the best thing in the last half century. Then came the 3rd season's twists and decided I would have to devour these massive tomes of yours. Excellent books. Have to scratch my head over HBO's changes to the story though. Now I will have to read your other works good ser =D.

Re: I didn't realize...
"Now I will have to read your other works" is music to my ears. I hope you will enjoy them.

The Dunk & Egg stories are prequels to A SONG OF ICE & FIRE, set some ninety years earlier in the history of Westeros.

Re: I didn't realize...
Oh, yes, do read them! "Dying of the Light" and "Windhaven" and "Sandkings" are my favourites. It drives me crazy when friends or colleagues complain that they can't find anything to read after ASOIAF. Part of what makes a book/series so enjoyable is the writer, yet somehow people doubt this fact with GRRM, and thus they won't check out his other stuff. Bah!

Anyway, I'd absolutely love for a one volume edition of all three Dunk and Egg stories to be released... I'm not so much a fan of graphic novels. I want the stories told from George or not at all. :I

Will the novels for the Dunk and Egg series become more easily available sometime soon? Been trying to get my hands on them for some time, but they are difficult to acquire.

Excellent news. I LOVE my 2 graphic novels so much. So pleased I got them both when they first came out in their complete editions, though I had the devil's own job getting hold of The Hedge Knight from Amazon UK due to frequent delays. I usually read them at least twice a year. I enjoyed The Mystery Knight too so i know I will love the graphic novel of that as well. It's already on my mental "to buy" list, alongside the world book that's coming out later this year.

May I suggest a graphic novel of The Princess and the Queen? I know that would go down well with a lot of the fans.

The She-Wolves of Winterfell.
I sincerely enjoyed all three of the prequels.
Good work as always. I hope that we can learn more
about The Disaster at Summerhall in the next one
whenever it comes out.

I recommend Fevre Dream and The Skin Trade, Arksa.
I think you'll enjoy them.

Monthy Python?
Hey Grrm!
I always wanted to read more of you, but in my country only Asoiaf are available.
Hopefully, that will change i hope, but there is something i have noticed about Dunk and Egg, they seem somewhat similar to Monthy Python and his movie The Holy Grail. Both are pretty funny, so i wonder i if you was ever inspired or drew something from that movie, it would be cool to know.
happy for this anyway!

Dying of the Light
Arksa, I also highly recommend reading "Dying of the Light." It is set in a highly imaginative, beautiful--yet depressing world. Within pages I was immersed in the setting. There could be 100 books written following the set up of this universe.

I wouldn't mind to see an e-version or reprint of the Dunk & Egg novellas! They're a bit too hard to get these days unfortunately :/

I've read both (prose and comic) versions of both of these, as well as the prose version of #3. Great stuff! Looking forward greatly to Dunk and Egg #4, as well as the comic version of Mystery Knight.

In terms of your other works, I've read The Ice Dragon (really awesome story and art), and am interested in reading "Windhaven".
