A question for all of you Game of Thrones watchers out there. How do you handle the break between seasons? Do you read the comic? How does it stack up against the show? I’m one of those odd people who usually stick with one format. I read The Walking Dead (but I don’t watch the show) for example though I’ve enjoyed multiple versions of Sherlock Holmes (in both print and on the screen). Are George RR Martin’s characters the type that exist well outside of their original presentation medium?

After the death of Viserys, Khal Drogo seems content to forget his promise to conquer Westeros for his wife, Daenerys—until an assassination attempt stirs him to vows of vengeance. Vengeance is also in the air at King’s Landing, where Joffrey, newly enthroned, names Tywin Lannister as the King’s Hand… while Sansa Stark pleads for the life of her father, now named a traitor to the crown.
