Bestselling writer Daniel Abraham and acclaimed illustrator Tommy Patterson bring their stunning graphic-novel adaptation of George R. R. Martin’s classic A Game of Thrones to a stunning finish that merits a place alongside the majestic original on the bookshelf of every fantasy fan. The death of King Robert Baratheon and the imprisonment of his Hand, Lord Eddard Stark of W Bestselling writer Daniel Abraham and acclaimed illustrator Tommy Patterson bring their stunning graphic-novel adaptation of George R. R. Martin’s classic A Game of Thrones to a stunning finish that merits a place alongside the majestic original on the bookshelf of every fantasy fan. The death of King Robert Baratheon and the imprisonment of his Hand, Lord Eddard Stark of Winterfell, has set the great houses of Westeros at one another’s throats. In Winterfell, Eddard’s eldest son and heir, Robb Stark, has gathered an army and is pushing south, determined to free his father. Along the way, he pledges to marry the daughter of Lord Walder Frey in exchange for a military advantage that allows him to capture Jaime Lannister—a powerful bargaining chip to ensure Lord Eddard’s safe release. But it is one thing to capture the Kingslayer and quite another to hold him. Meanwhile, in King’s Landing, young King Joffrey has other ideas than an exchange of prisoners. Ignoring the advice of his mother, Queen Cersei, he throws oil on the flames of conflict and ignites a conflagration that seems likely to consume not only the Starks but all of Westeros—unless Tyrion Lannister, the Imp, can bring the mad boy-king to heel. Beyond the Wall, greater dangers are brewing, as a winter as brutal as any in history approaches, bringing with it unnatural creatures out of legend. There, Eddard’s bastard, Jon Snow, must decide once and for all where his loyalties lie. And across the Narrow Sea, Daenerys Targaryen will learn the true measure of grief—and emerge from its fiery depths transformed, hardened, and ready to claim what is hers by right: the Iron Throne.

    There's just not much here to look at if you're in it for the art. Again, I'm not terribly disappointed since I went into it wanting a condensed version of the story, and not a beautiful graphic novel. This was probably my favorite of the 4 volumes, simply because there were so many BIG things that happened in this one. I probably would have been quite surprised if this were my first time reading about all of it. As it was, I still had a lot of fun doing that Oh.

I don't really have much to say about this one that I haven't already said about the other 3 volumes. I enjoyed them and wish there were graphic novels for each book out. The simplified plot worked well for me, and while I'm sure there were loads of details and plot threads that got cut, this would be my preferred method of enjoying this particular type of story. The end.

    The best thing about this series of graphic novels is that they adhere to the plot of the books rather than that of the television show. However, the show has clearly influenced a lot of the character art; this is not necessarily a bad thing, but I’d have liked to see this published before the show’s construction. That way we would get a more original representation of certain characters. I am glad that this is the final instalment of the graphic novels.

That way we would get a more original representation of certain characters. I am glad that this is the final instalment of the graphic novels. I love the books; I love and hate the television show, but together they provide all of Martin’s universe that you need. With this graphic novel it becomes a little overkill. I do, however, believe that I would have enjoyed this series more had I read it before I’d seen the television show. Don’t get me wrong, these graphic novels are very good, but after reading the original novels and watching the show they feel unnecessary. They are the poorest of the three representations, and came when too late in the game. By now, these are tiresome. They were fun when they first came out, but the world has gone Game of Thrones mad at the moment. The Artwork Overall, the quality of the artwork is very high, some of the scenery is very good in particular, and I think Dany’s story is drawn well. But, some of the characters do follow the same body and face shape, which makes them look like carbon copies of each other. Rob Stark, in this edition, looks exactly like Ned Stark but with red hair, which is very odd. They even look the same age. When Rob is on horseback with Cat they look like they could be a couple, which is quite disturbing. I liked the representation of Tyrion and Tyrin; the awkward relationship between father and son transferred well into this form, and the artist impression of Shae was very nice. Reading these graphic novels, and The World of Ice and Fire, has kept me sated whilst I patiently await A Winds of Winter. But, I do ardently hope that this last instalment of the graphic novels marks the last of the A Song of Ice and Fire side projects that have helped to put of the release of the one we’ve all been waiting for. Surely this graphic novel is the last thing to be released by George R.R Martin between now and A Winds of Winter. Well, one can hope.

    I feel like this review is going to be virtually identical to what I've already written for the first three volumes in the series. So let's just break it down to its component parts: 1. Daniel Abraham has done a fantastic job as an adapter of this series. Everything is clear and exciting and he gets all the most important bits in. 2. Tommy Patterson is a competent artist but I absolutely do not like his style. 3. I hate the way all the faces are in this series.

I hate the way all the faces are in this series. Everyone looks the same and looks mean. Aaaaaand, that's pretty much it. If they decide to adapt the other A Song of Ice and Fire books into graphic novels, I don't know if I will be reading them. If Daniel Abraham adapts them again, I probably will. If it's someone else, I don't know. If Tommy Patterson passes the torch to someone else, I probably will also. Mostly I just want to re-read the series again from the beginning because I have a sickness.

    People complain a lot about the artwork of this series but I found it reasonably good until book 3 but there was a definite slump in the quality. This book is the worst in terms of artwork and the best in terms of story till now so I was confused between 3 and 4 star, finally I decided to rate it a 3.5 Star book. I guess Tommy was bored with the series artwork so he finished it in hurry. Some frame even looked unfinished. This series specially this issue deserved better.

I love this series so much that my expectations are always of the highest level. This is probably the reason I sometimes find few things quite annoying in the TV series though the series is quite well made. So you can understand my disappointment with this issue. The only good thing about this graphic novel is the story. They have adopted it well in this format. The events of this issue are one of the most important ones in the entire series. (view spoiler)["The execution of Eddard Stark, Tyrion's appointment as hand, The king in the north chapter and last but not the least THE DRAGONS" (hide spoiler)] I mean these were the events that probably shaped the entire series. So you have to read this issue if you like the story in this medium in spite of the shortcomings.

    While I agree with many other readers that the art, while very, very good technically, started to lose its individuality the more characters were added, especially Robb. I also caught some spelling/redundacy errors but we're human. I have no idea why I can see others' errors but not my own egregious ones. I liked following Dany in this book better than I did the actual novel. Maybe I needed the visual for her storyline more than anyone else's.

I liked following Dany in this book better than I did the actual novel. Maybe I needed the visual for her storyline more than anyone else's. I gave it five stars because I loved revising the novels visually, and this will hopefully make my re-read tithe novels less confusing, flipping back and forth between maps and pages ("now who the heck was he??"). And art criticism aside, I certainly could never have done it. My battlefield would be stick figures and horses that vaguely resembled a preschoolers drawing of a pig. Now please, dear ser. FINISH the NOVELS!

    It took 4 years to complete the graphic novel adaptation of A Game of Thrones. Each volume had extras at the end to give the obsessive reader an inside look at the thought processes behind the project. I've read the book 2 or 3 times, and it was fun to revisit it in this format. Very well done.

    This is the final volume in the A Game of Thrones: The Graphic Novel series, with the adaptation of A Clash of Kings likely to begin being collected in the next year or two. The issues are on-going at least, as I checked Dynamite's website to see whether or not it had just been cancelled.

I can appreciate what they were trying to do, and the importance of good location/setting design in an artist. They adapted things well from a text standpoint and pacing standpoint, but the artwork distracted me too much to truly enjoy it. Unfortunately in this final volume the artwork distracted me to the point that I simply wanted to put the book down. Certain scenes with Dany and Eddard's dreams were rendered in what I'm guessing was meant to be a more artistic style that only succeeded in making the comic look more low-budget than it already did. Certain designs were just... lazy, and in long-shot panels some people even seemed to have lost their faces much like the Kindly Men. I'm glad I got through it, but man, it was rough.

    I finally finished this and my question is: “When do we get the rest of ASOIAF turned into graphic novels?”. Or maybe I’ll just run to the bookshop and grab the books or read the full first volume as I’m sure the graphic novel has a lot of gaps. Decisions, decisions.

I found it easier to get through the graphic novel. I tried to read the book and I never managed to understand everything and everyone; too many things were happening… or maybe I just didn’t reach the point where I could actually sit down and read the books. They just seemed like a bunch of crazy bloodthirsty lunatics. Not that now they are too far from that point, but anyway, things are a little bit settled in my mind. I’m sure they’ll continue in the same fashion, going after one another’s heads and children and everything, but well, that’s just who and how they are and I have to bear with them. And to think that maybe none of this would have happened if Cat had not taken Tyrion as a prisoner. Nah, the bloodshed would have happened anyway. Tyrion was just a pretext. The artwork is amazing but… I think the artist used the same model for various characters. For example, Tywin and Lord Commander are like twins. When Tywin appeared I was like: “This looks awfully like Lord Commander, what’s he doing here?”. If it were not for the color of the (little) hair they both possessed, I would have been lost for good. I totally recommend this to people like me who started GoT several times and tried to watch the show and never got past the first few episodes of the first season. This graphic series might get you into the GoT fever and you might get round to reading the entire series. I myself won’t do that at the moment and that’s not because I don’t want to but because I feel guilty for falling behind with some other books I’ve started.

    The biggest problem with this graphic novel series is the cringe-inducing art. The storytelling is pretty good but the art is too cartoony. Children look older than their age. Men are all super muscular. Women have weird faces and all of them are the carbon copies of each other. A lot of the details aren't even right Overall, if you're obsessed with the TV show and have read the novel, this (graphic novel) series is only going to sorely disappoint you.

I don't know how long it's going to take for her to grow back because she was completely bald when the fire died. When that voodoo witch showed Dany her child, it looked like a shrivelled up thing that was half-human, half-lizard. Imagine the doctor in The Amazing Spider-Man every time he drank the serum to turn into a lizard, but then the transformation would stop halfway and that was Dany's baby. And Sansa....if only she had a backbone like her 10 year old sister...

    This was a somewhat disappointing finale to an otherwise noble effort at adapting a very complex story. Add in the devoted fan base, some who've been with the series since 1996 and some who joined in when the TV series premiered, and you have a lot to live up to. The plot adaptation is so-so, though in all fairness I'm not sure anyone else could have done better (or worse). The writers leave in the key plot points but I still think that readers who are completely new to the material will be lost.

The writers leave in the key plot points but I still think that readers who are completely new to the material will be lost. Other important pieces are not as clear as they should be - for example, readers familiar with the story know what's happening when Yoren starts shouting "Boy!" to Arya Stark as he prevents her from watching a certain execution. Newbies won't have a clue, as the story isn't clear. Where I feel it completely fails is in the artwork. I couldn't tell who the fudge anyone was. Age is impossible to determine. Robb Stark looks older than his mom. Sansa is indistinguishable from Lady Catelynn. Jon Snow looks like a Victorian dandy who fell into a pool of ink. All of the characters have angry moments, and in those moments they are all draw as if very constipated. Such a shame. The earlier volumes had nice artwork and there are clearly talented ASOIAF artists out there - I continue to be mesmerized as I peruse the pages of The World of Ice & Fire: The Untold History of Westeros and the Game of Thrones. Why couldn't those artists have been hired for at least a few panels?

    This was fantastic and a great conclusion to the series of graphic novels for A Game of Thrones. The illustrations were amazing throughout and I really loved how closely the graphic novels followed the book. There were still things left out, but overall, all the main events important to the plot were included. I really enjoyed the entire series and it was great being drawn back into the fabulous world that George R. R. Martin created.

    Split over four volumes, A Game of Thrones: The Graphic Novel is a great way to re-read George R.R. Martin's epic opener to A Song of Ice and Fire, or experience the world beyond the screen for the first time if thousand-page books are too daunting.

    This volume was great. I was wishing there had been more story in Volume 3, but this volume more than made up for it. There was plenty of story covered, unlike Volume 3. For that reason, I think this one flowed much more smoothly.

I love it. Somewhere along the way I discovered the graphic novels and I must say, Daniel Abraham has done a great job with them. Usually with graphic novels that are based on books have something wrong with them. Either the art isn't that great or the story is cut down or too much of the story is put in and the balance is off.....something. But these really are perfect, the text blurbs aren't paragraphs long and the art is beautiful. If anyone happens to be reading this and isn't sure about it for whatever reason, I assure you it really is very well done! Personally can't wait to get started on the next book.
