The prospective publication date for their adaption of George R.R. Martin’s pilot of Doorways has been announced by IDW during their big press panel at San Diego Comic-Con. According to Editor-in-Chief, Chris Ryall, the comic book is set to begin publishing in November of this year. GRRM previously revealed that the agreement had been reached during the C2E2 convention in Chicago. The plan for the initial miniseries is to adapt GRRM’s script for the produced pilot, and that if the series is a success it could lead to adaptions of a number of unproduced scripts he had for the proposed series, as well as original stories from other writers within the Doorways setting.
Doorways is a science fiction series, about fugitives on the run from an enemy from another version of Earth. The protagonists are able to travel through doorways which take them to new timelines or realities where history has been subtly—and, often as not, massively—different. If this sounds a bit familiar, yes, Sliders came into development not so long after GRRM sent around his Doorways proposal.
