A Song of Ice and Fire, the series of books on which Game of Thrones, the show is based, has given birth to a wide variety of tie-ups, collaborations, merchandise and publications. For those of you who don’t know, Dynamite Entertainment publishes A Song of Ice and Fire comic books. The first book, A Game of Thrones has already been fully adapted into comics, and now the second book, A Clash of Kings, will now follow. The comic books are scheduled for a June 7 release, and artist Magali Villeneuve, recently tweeted a picture of her artwork for the cover of the first issue.

Villeneuve has previously also worked on the 2016 edition of A Song of Ice and Fire calendar.
For the comics adaptation of A Clash of Kings writer Landry Quinn Walker will be working with artist by Mel Rubi. Westeros.org says that the first issue will have more than just one cover. It will apparently come out in variants. The variant by Mike S. Miller, who has previously worked on the Dunk & Egg adaptations will have Melisandre, Stannis, Shireen and the fool Patchface, a character from the books that never made it to the show.
