A Game of Thrones, the Graphic Novel, vol 1, adapted by Daniel Abraham, originally by George RR Martin, 240 pages
This is a very loyal adaptation of the Song of Ice and Fire series- more so than the tv series, even. As anyone who read the books would know, there is a fair amount of sex and violence- and the artist does not hold back. So... definitely for adults! This graphic novel covers up to the part where Catelyn Stark makes it to King's Landing to find out who tried to murder her son, and is led to believe that it was Tyrion Lannister (as if!). So not quite the whole first book. I think this is a really good way to get the Game of Thrones story for those who don't have the patience for the books, or who just want to watch the show but feel overwhelmed by how many characters there are. This helps sort them out for you.
