208- Betrayal at the Castle on the Hill

<< First < Previous Next > Most Recent >>

That's right, it's a double page special not three weeks after the last one. This strip just had to come as a two parter, not just because of the absence of a good breking point in the dialog for a punchline, but for the weight of the events within. I hope if this is your first time seeing the story unfold (and if it is, why haven't you watched the show first?!) this was as surprising to you as it was to me the first time I read A Game of Thrones. This betrayal happens only about two thirds of the way into the first book (I've shifted it later to cut out a lot of sitting around waiting in a jail cell) and yet it defines the sort of heel-turn events which have come to define the series. George R.R. Martin has well deserved the title of 'master of the plot twist.'

As an update to my decision to reduce to uploading two comics a week for session 8, I've decided that new strips will go online on Tuesday and Thursday at 12:00 GMT (starting this Tuesday the 27th) until further notice. Again, I'm trying to wrok out some form of joint writing project, but unless that picks up, this might have to be a permanent change.
