Landry Q. Walker (Red Lanterns, The Incredibles) returns for the next comic adaptation of George R.R. Martin’s epic saga A Song of Ice and Fire with A Clash of Kings. With artist Mel Rubi (Red Sonja, Doctor Strange), the story begins halfway through the 1998 novel, the second in Martin’s opus, and features colors by Ivan Nunes (A Game of Thrones, Grimm Fairy Tales) and letters by Tom Napolitano (Justice League, Supergirl).
A certain Baratheon has just been felled, spurring Catelyn Stark and Brienne of Tarth on the run. While Tyrion Lannister has settled in with his new love Shae, Arya Stark is still held in Harrenhal.
“As we head into the second half of this adaptation, I believe we will see some of the strongest work on the title to date. We are on the precipice of some of the most pivotal scenes set in George R.R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire—Daenerys’ exploration of the House of the Undying, the Battle of the Blackwater, and much more,” said Walker. “Breaking this novel down word by word, chapter by chapter, you really get a sense of how meticulously layered the work is, and how the tension between these warring families slowly spirals out of control. Bringing those story beats to their climax and having the privilege to help guide the visual interpretation of one of the most popular fantasy series, it’s an experience beyond description. I can’t wait to share that experience with readers.”
Rubi added, “An amazing story continues in this Clash of Kings volume. I’m thrilled to be back along with my fellow creators as a perfect team. We are at a point where the entire team brings the collective weight of two years’ experience on this series, and I think that shows in my art and those of my collaborators. This will surely be one astonishing series!”
Mike S. Millar (Injustice: Gods Among Us) returns as primary cover artist. Rubi will also contribute covers, along with Stephen Segovia (The Terrifics, Vampirella) and Butch Guice (Invaders, Aquaman).
