Over at his website, author Daniel Abraham shares a his 5 minute presentation from a recent Ignite New Mexico event. There, he provides a useful insight into the basics of his adaptation of George R.R. Martin’s A Game of Thrones into comic book form for Dynamite and Bantam, in their George R.R. Martin’s A Game of Thrones comic series. As noted, the plan is to adapt the first novel over the course of two years and twenty-four issues, a page count that’s actually slightly longer than that of the first novel, but (as Abraham explains) there’s a lot of places where the shift from a written to a heavily visual medium (like comics) means a great deal of changes.
Quite interesting, and as we said, it’s brief at just 5 minutes. Issue 3 of Dynamite’s series has just hit shelves. The first six issues will be collected and published by Bantam, and will feature a striking cover.
