Axel-In-Charge: Extending "Secret Wars," Excitement for a "Totally Awesome Hulk"
Because every fantasy epic needs a sequel, right? Three weeks ago I posted a massive gallery of fan art for A Song of Ice and Fire and Game of Thrones, author George R.R. Martin’s addictive revisionist-fantasy series of novels and the HBO television show adapting it respectively. Almost immediately, Robot 6’s commenters started suggesting additions, while the wider ASoIaF/GoT fan community keeps generating kick-ass artistic homages to their favorite characters and scenes faster than Tyrion Lannister would tear through a copy of Chester Brown’s Paying For It. (That is to say, pretty goddamn fast.) As was infamously the case with the series itself, it soon became clear that another volume was necessary. So here you go! Now all that’s left is to wait until the recently released A Dance with Dragons yields a Gregor Clegane-sized amount of fan art of its own…
Many thanks to Jamie S. Rich and the rest of the original gallery’s commenters, Fuck Yeah Game of Thrones Art, Zack Soto’s The Wall Defends Itself, Kris Mukai & Maritsa Patrinos’s Game of Thrones minizine, and Elio & Linda of Westeros.org for helping to scour the Internet’s riverlands for these images.
Please note: If all you’ve seen is the TV show, there are some mild SPOILERS ahead in the form of characters you haven’t met and, in a couple of cases (though nothing major, so don’t panic) events you haven’t seen. Also, some of these images are tastefully NSFW, so be warned.
Check out the whole gallery after the jump — click on any image to go to its original source, or as close to it as I could get. Don’t forget to check out Volume One of the gallery too if you’re looking for more. And again, please, NO SPOILERS IN THE COMMENTS, for any book in the series. I will be very strict about this. To quote good old Tyrion Lannister, “Heads, spikes, walls.”
