A bird in the hand is worth two in the…hedge?

JRD recently got me copies of the Hedge Knight, The Sworn Sword, and The Mystery Knight graphic novels. *swoon*

For those of you who have no idea what I’m talking about <!> – these are the short stories written by George RR Martin about Dunk & Egg (prequels to ASoIaF, if you will).

I’ve finished reading The Hedge Knight, and am about halfway through The Sworn Sword. The artwork is fantastic. It’s done by the Dable Brothers, who happen to have also put out the Wheel of Time: New Spring comic, which was similarly amazing.

Anyone who follows me has probably picked up on my love of birds, so it will be no surprise that my two favourite images in The Hedge Knight are avian. :>

Allow me to share my love

The image to the left has a special place in my heart, however, as I’ve always pictured the Opopanax as being a bird with blue and red plumage much like this one, but more similar in size to a peacock.

    I love both of those comics, I’m still waiting for the third one to come to graphic novel. I think I liked the first one best.
