I’ve never been captured by a book like Game of Thrones, by a series of books like Song of Ice and Fire. The HBO adaptations to AGOT was fantastic, which drew me to the books, and I’ve been hooked ever since. I’ve re-read all five books three times now. The web buzz is ever growing thanks to the series, with theories and fan art constantly showing up in an ever growing rate.
We gave you our picks for the best art works on the web two weeks ago, and today I came upon a WordPress blog simply named All of Westeros by Paul Abbamondi who’s decided to pass the time and wait for The Winds of Winter to come out by drawing out each and every character in the books. He’s at 79, with plenty more to go, but his simplistic yet creative style is really catching on and worth another look.
Seemed like the main character for anyone reading the first book or watching the first season, and then bam… Joff decides to take his head off. Starks are never safe in GRRM books, and no one is safe in this series, no matter how important to the story line.
Hardly a teenager, but for those of you who are fans of ASOIAF, you know there’s no limit on age regarding when you start killing people. A true feminist that has been through a lot since coming down from Winterfell to King’s Landing, currently doing her thing across the Narrow Sea.
From a Bastard with no future, to a Bastard who commands the Night’s Watch, which hasn’t exactly worked out that well for him last time we checked up on him. Still, if R+L=J, we know he’s coming back.
The Kingly version of Robert, who’s probably one of the best people to have as a drinking/partying/swinging buddy.
The most unattractive depiction of the Queen of Dragons, but it works well with all the other drawings. Finally, she seems to be out of the Meereenese knot.
The most complex, interesting, women hating, family hating, fun and whore loving dwarf in all of Westeros and Essos combined. The best of all the POV characters, the one character I can read their chapter over and over and over… (At 3 re-reads now).
The Hound is dead. Sandor? Not so sure. Quiet Isle?
Definitely dead. Like Robb Stark, never lost a battle. Might be the mightiest warrior we encounter in the books, but alas, untreated wounds and an evil Maegi take down the fiercest warriors.
Scheming, slightly sleazy and perverted. A Working Class Hero.
The best knight with a Lance in all the Seven Kingdoms.
The real Puppet Master? Master Whisperer, Spider, Eunuch. We still haven’t figured Varys out.
Despite featuring in only a few chapters in A Storm of Swords, is one of the biggest fan favorites of the series. The coolest character ever written by GRRM, involved in two of the most memorable chapters in all five books (His introduction and the battle against the Mountain).
The author described him as a little S&%$. No need in further explanation. We’re thankful for poison and hair nets.
So TV viewers won’t be confused with Osha, the wildling, introduced in Season 1, she’ll be re-named in A Clash of Kings. Pity. TV viewers aren’t that stupid.
The reason for Robb Stark losing his grip on the North and his army. Still, she might be carrying the Young Wolf’s heir. One of the bigger questions troubling Westerosi Geeks.
