A Game Of Thrones #2 Sells Out!
Official Press Release
November 1, 2011, Runnemede, NJ – Following on the heels of Dynamite’s A Game of Thrones #1 sell out (with the #1 2nd printing nearing another sell-out), Dynamite continues with A Game of Thrones #2 selling out and going to an immediate 2nd print! With A Game of Thrones #2 having just arrived in stores, this gives retailers plenty of time to ensure fans get to enjoy the second issue of this epic pulse-pounding series!
With covers by Alex Ross and Mike S. Miller, the series is illustrated by Tommy Patterson and adapted and scripted by Daniel Abraham, the award-winning and bestselling author of The Long Price Quartet.
In A Game of Thrones #2, George R. R. Martin’s monumental fantasy epic continues in this dazzlingly wrought graphic novel adaptation. In the second volume of A Game of Thrones, the irresistible plot thickens and the spellbinding magic of a master storyteller deepens. For Eddard Stark, Lord of Winterfell and Warden of the North, a new role now beckons: Hand of the King-a position of power second only to his majesty himself. But is a life at court, in luxurious King’s Landing, any life for a hardened man of action like Stark? Is the king’s invitation an honor he can refuse-or a mandate he cannot ignore, when faced with shocking revelations of treachery on high?
“All of us involved have poured our hearts and souls into this project, determined both to get it right for the fans and make it the best it can possibly be,” says Executive Editor at Random House Anne Groell. “It is a true delight to see it being embraced so enthusiastically.”
“Game of Thrones is such a strong, powerful story with such beautiful storytelling that adapting it carries a real weight of anxiety,” says writer Daniel Abraham. “To see the project succeed so quickly and so unequivocally is a relief and a joy. I feel like we’ve done right by George and his fans.”
“I am so thrilled about the incredible reception to our A Game of Thrones comic series,” says Dynamite Entertainment President and Publisher Nick Barrucci. “A Game of Thrones is bringing new readers to comics, and we couldn’t be happier!”
