The Hedge Knight Rides Again!
One of summer’s most anticipated sequels arrives this June, as Marvel Comics & The Dabel Brothers present the latest adaptation of George R. R. Martin’s Hedge Knight II: Sworn Sword #1 (0f 6). Continuing the acclaimed comic book translations of the New York Times best-selling Hedge Knight novels, Mike S. Miller and Ben Avery return with Ser Duncan and his new apprentice Egg, now a year wiser since the original Hedge Knight mini-series.
When it comes to adapting this popular George R. R. Martin series of novels, Miller and Avery are hit with fans and critics alike. “The Hedge Knight is well worth picking up and remains a stunning example of both the visual and literary potential of the comic book medium,” raved Adam Volk of SFSITE.Com.
A similar sentiment was echoed by Javier Lugo of SilverBulletComicBooks.Com, who described the series as, “A great story, an excellent adaptation, superior artwork and coloring in a well-priced package, George R. R. Martin’s The Hedge Knight is certainly worth every penny spent.”
After Dunk & Egg encounter an aged knight named Ser Eustace, who soon accepts Dunk as his sworn sword, things seem to be looking up…but Eustace’s other sworn sword doesn’t take kindly to his new comrade in arms! And just what side did Ser Eustace take in the legendary Battle of Redgrass Field?
Featuring a stunning variant cover by red-hot artist Leinil Yu (New Avengers), Hedge Knight II: Sworn Sword #1 is a can’t-miss for fans of the original limited series-now available as a premiere edition hardcover. This June, the Hedge Knight rides again and you can’t miss a moment of this epic limited series!
