Daniel Abraham’s adaptation of George R. R. Martin’s acclaimed epic fantasy A Game of Thrones continues to cast its gripping spell.  In the savage north, Jon Snow finds new friends—and enemies—among the brothers of the Night’s Watch, sworn to defend Westeros against the horrors that lie beyond the Wall. In the more civilized savagery of King’s Landing, Eddard Stark learns from Catelyn of the Lannisters’ involvement in the attack on Bran . . . and the murder of Jon Arryn, the previous Hand of the King. While across the Narrow Sea, Daenerys—newly wed to Khal Drogo—learns what it means to be a khaleesi of the Dothraki.

Six hundred years ago long, before history’s great explorers stole the credit for their feats, mighty Chinese treasure fleets set sail to reach every continent. These voyages of discovery left behind an evil legacy and a plot by a powerful Chinese sorcerer to dominate the world. Now in modern day Los Angeles, an ancient Chinese prophecy must be fulfilled and seven men with nothing in common but their destinies must face the Son of Hell to save the world.  This omnibus edition contains the entire ten issues of the comic book series.

Part 1: Written by Eisner Award winning writer, Garth Ennis (Punisher, Preacher), art by Jeevan Kang.
Part 2: Written by Benjamin Raab & Deric Hughes (Warehouse 13) with art by Edison George .

“Seven Brothers is a natural combination of Woo and Ennis. In both of their best works, the major themes addressed are brotherhood and the application of stylish but excessive force. Ennis excels in bringing a defined identity and a sense of realism to a fantastic tale.”  - Fractal Matter

“There’s a lot of potential in this book, especially with the brothers hailing from all over the world, that could make this the hard-core, uncompromising flipside to NBC’s Heroes.” – Variety, Bags & Boards

“An illustrative tour-de-force that seizes your eyes and imagination by the throat…”  - The Comics Review

“Ennis brought his A game to this project.” (Rating 8/10) – Bam! Kapow!

“This series has it all and is a must read for any comic fan.” – Comic Fever

“Enter John Woo, celebrated director, who brings outrageous vitality to the movies, as well as dazzling technical verve.” – Frank Miller
