June 26, 2013

At first it was 3 pages then 6. I thought 10 would definitely do it. Well it turns out 12 pages was the ticket. Prince Oberyn Martell, The Red Viper of Dorne is a character who is hard not to like. Very excited to see this bit play out in Season 4 of Game of Thrones. If anyone is interested I have the original art for sale HERE!

    Well done! I love how drastic you made their size differences. My image of the mountain was always a wall of human flesh you’d have to tilt your head up to just to get an idea that what you were looking at was a person.

      According to the books he is supposed to be over 8 feet tall and over 30 stone (which is 420+ pounds). So yeah. The dude is a freaking wall of flesh. In full plate he would be even more intimidating.

    Just reading it in the books was crazy intense, but this was fantastic. You captured my imagination of the scene. Well done! Will there be more?

    Ser Gregor “The Mountain That Rides” Clegane vs The Prince Oberyn Nymeros Martell.

    Prince Oberyn Martell talks too much. The Mountain is too big to be any man’s toy.

    My respect to The Mad Dog of House Lannister.

    Very nice…

    My favorite bit is the look of shock and very real fear on Oberyn’s face and that he struggles in vain for his life when the Mountain grabs him right at the end. The Red Viper easily could be portrayed as an unwavering defiant caricature of vengeful wrath right up to the end and probably has been before, however this cartoonist gives us something rather different and in my opinion considerably more interesting. Their Oberyn Martell is suddenly confronted with the price he is going to have pay for the confession and vengeance for his murdered sister and realises in the last seconds of his life that he really doesn’t want to pay that price…

    …but it is already too late!

    Brilliant choice (re: the scene), this was undoubtedly the high point of the book for me, even more so when you find out that the Mountain is going to die, slowly….. (sadistic snicker”

    Nice job, Jeff. One of my favorite battles in Game of Thrones. Keeps me on the edge of my seat and breaks my heart. Brilliant.

    Amazing adaptation! I read Storm of Swords some weeks ago and since then I was wondering how it would be a comic adaptation of such an intense moment… When I read it, this was the song that came to my mind, and you bring me the oportunity to fullfil my wish!

    I stumbled on this looking for images from the upcoming GOT season. But I found it to be more than just a good palate cleanser. I read a lot of comics and the Red Viper is one of my favorite characters in the series. Pity this is his one chance in the spotlight. Yet it’s is still one of my favorite scenes. Well adapted.
