Game Of Thrones Author George R.R. Martin Life Story Gets The Comic Book Treatment

5824

Bluewater Productions newest comic book release this week tells the story of the famed author George R.R. Martin of the popular novel and HBO series “Game of Thrones”.

Released on May 29th, “George R.R. Martin: The Power Behind the Throne” features an illustrated version of his life story.

This is the epic story of how a humble, comic-loving boy from Jersey became the modern, high king of fantasy.  Best known for the Game of Thrones TV series, George R. R. Martin has — over the decades — “rewritten the book” on sci-fi, horror and fandom in ways few authors could.  Come and discover the reason Time magazine named him “one of the most influential people in the world”.

“George R.R. Martin: The Power Behind the Throne” is written by JS Earls & Tom M. Smith with art by JM Cuellar.   The comic book features a cover by Robert Aragon.

“I’m really happy with the way the comic turned out,” said biographer and Pistolfist creator J.S. Earls.  “Aside from the fact George is a comic collector himself, I have friends and colleagues who’ve worked with George, so it was important to me that this was done right.  That it was a bit more personal and visual than what you might find on Wikipedia.”

Earls went on, “George has a long and fascinating career, so there truly is something for old and new fans alike. Obviously, we touch on the smash-hit Game of Thrones TV series, but we also gave equal time to the novels on which it’s based.  Then there’s his Wild Cards anthologies, his TV work on The Twilight Zone and Beauty & the Beast, his sci-fi and horror novels, his amazing relationship with his fans and his comic-filled childhood.”

“The bottom line is this really is a respectful tribute to an incredibly talented, yet totally relatable human being.  It’s not just a list of what he’s done, it’s his life story — George Martin: The Power Behind the Thrones.”
