Here Comes The Mystery Knight

The long-awaited... and much requested... graphic novel of THE MYSTERY KNIGHT, the third of my Dunk & Egg novellas, is on its way at last.

The good folks at Random House have assembled the same great creative team who gave us the comic book adaptations of THE HEDGE KNIGHT and THE SWORN SWORD -- Ben Avery on script, and Mike S. Miller for the artwork.

Here's the cover:

THE MYSTERY KNIGHT will be released in hardcover on July 4. (No, sorry, no individual issues this time around). It's 148 graphic pages, and from what I've seen so far, it's gorgeous!

I am from Brazil and I found AGOT (the first book of ASOIAF) in Graphic Novels at Saraiva.

how not?
how not? leya translated and sell the two first novellas of dunk and egg (the hedge knight and the sworn sword) in the graphic novel form. you can find them on online bookshops (amazon, submarino, saraiva). but you also can find them in the original, english. just make a search through the book sellers i listed before.

i bought them one year ago and they shine in my bookshelf.

Great and Fabulous-Looking Cover!
That's extremely exciting to hear! Out of curiosity, how much direction did you give to Mike Miller and other artists who have contributed artwork for ASOIAF? Do artists generally send concept sketches to you and then you send notes back to them?

Anyways, can't wait for pick this up!

Re: Great and Fabulous-Looking Cover!
One of the first things I ever did in ASoIaF fandom was work a bit on the THE SWORN SWORD adaptation from Dabel Brothers. Ran got a couple of us from the forum to research different bits of the story and send them to Ben and Mike. IIRC, my job was on geographic stuff, what the scenery was like, what Standfast and Coldmoat looked like based on the text etc. Not sure how much help it was, but it was a pretty cool thing to do.

We didn't get paid or credited for it as promised though, which was kind of annoying, but the end result was pretty good.

So excited!
The first two graphic novels are fantastic! D&E are great stories so I'm really excited to see The Mystery Knight in this format! There's something about the graphic novel format that I just love. I actually introduced my sister to Westeros through D&E and since then she's read everything just like me and we talk about the world and its characters all the time. I can't wait to get my hands on this!

Love it
This is brilliant news. I have been waiting and hoping this would come out for years. My copies of the previous 2 graphic novels are read a couple of times a year. The Hedge Knight is very well worn. I have already preordered this one.

Nice! I hope the farty pig bladder scene does justice :)

Coincidentally I finished a re-read of this last night and remembered why Maynard Plumm is such a great character!

Nice cover
Great news, and love that cover. I really enjoyed the comic adaptations of the Sworn Sword and the Hedge Knight and bought both in graphic novel form anyway, so the lack of individual issues isn't a deal breaker at all for me. Putting this on my calendar!

Terribly excited for this! /marks calendar and waits with baited breath

...and it's probably baited vs. bated because I did just eat fish soup.

Great minds think alike
The first thing I did was set a reminder on my calendar.
Dec. 17th, 2016 01:52 am (UTC)
Have you seen Rogue One already? Liked it? What about the Sci-Fi TV series "Black Mirror"?

All over it
I already set a reminder on my calendar.

I love stories from all genre and all media including comics. The previous adaptions were fantastic! Incredible art! Mr. Avery is a really nice guy too.

a Knight of the Seven Kingdoms graphic novel?
Will there ever be a book with all three graphic novels combined, like a Knight of the Seven Kingdoms?

Eggs-ellent news!
I loved the first two graphic novels; in fact I read the graphic novels before Georges short stories. All are brilliant and any opportunity to spend more time in westeros is gladly received.

I am so excited. Look forward to seeing Bloodraven (he did appear in TSS but only in flashback). A brightening-up of a period where I am gloomed by Brexit and Trump. To Ser Duncan and Egg.

Feel like I've Been FISTED!
After seeing that cover.

The Wikipedia article on Tiberius Caesar claims under the 'In Fiction' section that you said Stannis Baratheon was inspired by Tiberius. There is no citation for this claim. Could you confirm or deny this?

Also, and this is only going off my own suspicions, but could you confirm or deny that Jon Snow is partially inspired by the OG Caesar, Gaius Julius? Not just in how he was assassinated with knives by his subordinates, but in his life and political career as well. It's just something that struck me in my reading of a book on Caesar.
