George R.R. Martin surprises fans at SDCC 2022 after apparently canceling his in person appearance




Every fandom looks forward to attending the San Diego Comic-Con every year, and it is being held for the first time since 2019 this year. Game of Thrones has been a regular attendee, with panels with the showrunners and everything. Now that the show is over, it’s time for the upcoming prequel to take over. Warner Bros. Discovery has revealed its lineup for this year’s San Diego Comic-Con which runs July 21-24 and will showcase some of the most recent and upcoming projects including House of The Dragon. Game of Thrones author George R. R. Martin is a part of that.

Martin had earlier issued an apology on his blog Not A Blog:

We’re sad to report due to the high levels of the new variant of Covid that George has decided to cancel his in-person appearances at San Diego Comic-Con this year.

But there will be signatures will be floating around on the Comicon Floor. Please ask about signed copies of Fire and Blood at the Penguin Random House booth or at the Mysterious Galaxy booth. Plus we’ve gotten some limited edition posters featuring the first cover of the Marvel WildCards run coming out later this month. Please ask about how to acquire a poster at the Marvel booth.

We hope everyone has a great Con and again apologize for our cancelations.”

However, Martin did show up with the rest of the cast in the House of The Dragon panel. Here are some of the pictures from the SDCC 2022 event:
