The hedge knight, A Game of Thrones Prequel








Have you heard about the Hedge Knight? Probably if you are only watching Game of Thrones on TV you haven't.

It's a great opportunity to learn about it though! Plus I will be giving you two alternatives to check it out! A book and a comic!

It's all set up in Westeros and is actually a Game of Thrones prequel. 


My suggestion though is going to be about the comic book. Let's face it. If you haven't read the Game of Thrones books it's pretty hard to actually read the Hedge Knight books either. 

But what the comic book will offer you is a world class, amazing illustration of the Game of Thrones universe. 

You are going to see the armors as they are actually depicted on George R. R. Martin's mind. Truth is that when it comes to a TV production you can't really show exactly what is being described on the book.

Yep, that's the Kingsguard


On a comic book though, it's the opposite. You get to see it all. The illustration is done by Mike S. Miller. I love his work. It's truly magnificent. You will love it.

That is his work too by the way!


So what is The Hedge Knight all about? It's around 90 years before the events that take place on the Game of Thrones show. It ends with the tragic events of Sumerhall that lead to the birth of Rhaegar Targaryen. But I will say no more about this because it's something huge!



It follows the life of a Hedge Knight called Duncan. Dunk for short. He was actually the squire of a Hedge Knight, Ser Arlan but the poor guy died of old age. There he decides to become himself a knight and ride across the seven kingdoms.



On his way to Ashford to compete in a tourney he finds a young boy. Named Egg. Together they will form what we call Dunk and Egg.

I will say no more, as it could spoil it for you.

I will just go on ahead and tell you will get to meet and understand a lot of things around Westeros. You will see why there is a green and a red apple in house Fossoway, you will learn more about the house Dondarrion and many more houses.

You will get find out a lot about the Targaryen ruling family and also about the Baratheons.

This whole story is a cruel fairy tale guaranteed to give you an amazing time!


Check it out and you will not regret it!


By the way I believe I must have the comic books in a CBR. format on my computer so if you cannot find them I could help, by sending them through wetransfer or whatever, so feel free to ask!

  1. Thank you for following my work. This is really quite an awesome moment for me. I absolutely rave about BBC programming all the time. I much prefer it to American television on the whole. I will give this a look because of your engaging style and great thoughts about this show. Thank you for the work. I'll let you know what I think of the show.

  2. Hey and thanks a lot for the feedback! Let me just begin with the fact that I completely agree on the topic of British shows quality. When they invest in a good show in England they make almost every time something remarkable. Considering the fact we speak about an island with small population with the only uniqueness being that of having an extraordinary culture those shows are worth finding, exploring and engage with! That's about it! Thank you for your good words and I hope you like the rest of the blog!

  7. Hi again, sorry for my late response. I am not sure whether its the right link or not. by the way, this is the error message that appeared at the facebook box "The `href` parameter must reference a valid Facebook page, but "https://www.facebook.com/sunizaharon" is not a valid Facebook page."

    Please have a look at my blog at http://sunzstories.blogspot.com/

    Thank you.

  8. Hey so I found out what is wrong. This is indeed not a Facebook page. It is a Facebook profile. In order for the widget to work you need to have a Facebook PAGE. My suggestions are that you build your new page and start promoting your blog there. From your blog you can promote your Facebook page and so on. So you get another channel of communication.
