A Game of Thrones: Comic Book, Issue 15by George R. R. Martin
George R. R. Martin's fantasy masterpiece continues. . . . With her unborn son proclaimed "the stallion who mounts the world," Daenarys has more cause than ever to rejoice in her marriage to Khal Drogo. But when her brother, the mad Viserys, demands his promised crown, Dany's future takes an unexpected turn. Meanwhile, in King's Landing, Robert Baratheon is mortally wounded while hunting. Robert decrees that Eddard Stark shall be Lord Regent until Prince Joffrey comes of age, but Eddard knows the boy is no son of the dying king's. Yet where in this serpent's nest of intrigue can he turn for help to secure the throne for the rightful heir? And in the frozen north, Jon Snow, newly promoted to the Night's Watch, suffers a shock to his pride-and takes the next fateful step toward his destiny.

You will either enjoy these as an alternative rendition of the story, or you will dislike the way it condenses and compresses it to accommodate this media format. As a fan of both the books and the show, I like it as a light entertainment means to revisit the story without a large time sink. If you are not a fan of book or show, you may find that these are move faster, yet are easier to follow and keep track of plot lines...or you may hate it too.
