There are rumors that she is a witch and has killed several husbands and Dunk has to make her see reason. This turns into a fight back and forth between The Red Widow and Ser Eustace. It seems The Red Widow has the okay from the King to take the water. This opens up another barrel of worms and they have to go through some issues before coming to a compromise. It seems as well, that our Dunk has a crush on her ladyship and she on him, but nothing can be done because he doesn't come from a "great family." Whatever... you know the ways and the days! Poor Dunk must move on after his little battle even though they wanted him to stay. You know if he did that would have caused all kinds of trouble. I loved the novel and I'm sorry I can't tell you more, you will just have to read it :) The graphics were awesome, I love when a book has beautiful graphics!

    My copy has finally arrived! I gave three stars for the e-book version when I read it a few years back but for this particular edition with its AMAZING artwork, it deserves another star. Much much better than the hideous AGoT graphic novels. The part when Ser Eustace told the tale of the Battle of Redgrass Field is just totally mesmerizing.

    I am following a kind of schedule where I try to read the original text before I see or read the adaptation. So I had just finished the Knight of Seven Kingdoms few days ago so the story is still fresh in my mind and to boot the book was heavily illustrated so many scenes looked like already seen. This was in full color though and it was a welcome change. Illustrations were again good and the adaptation was faithful in fact all the dialogues were the same.

This was in full color though and it was a welcome change. Illustrations were again good and the adaptation was faithful in fact all the dialogues were the same. I am just glad that I got to read the graphic novelization too and soon would try to read the graphic novel of the third story and then the graphic novelization of the first book in the Song of Ice and Fire series. So yeah if you have read the original novella then it would be a nice change and if you haven't read it then still it's a nice read so give it a chance and then just Keep on Reading. I have always loved comics, and I hope that I will always love them. Even though I grew up reading local Indian comics like Raj Comics or Diamond Comics or even Manoj Comics, now's the time to catch up on the international and classic comics and Graphic novels. I am on my quest to read as many comics as I can. I Love comics to bit, may comics never leave my side. I loved reading this and love reading more, you should also read what you love and then just Keep on Reading.

Ser Duncan volunteers to serve Ser Eustace in this matter and is paired with the slovenly Sir Bennis. I shall not spoil the rest of this intricate plot for you-read the book. I enjoyed this tale more due to the revelations about the Blackfyre Rebellion, as well as learning between the Red and Black Dragon "sides" of the Targeryan dynasty. I wonder if there are more stories for Dunk and Egg. These are superbly done and carry the spirit of the books. The artwork is gorgeous and the story is truly a good one about the aftereffects of picking the wrong side during a rebellion. If you are a Game of Thrones fan this is a series you should look into.

    You gotta like Dunk and Egg, that's a fact. Both of them are close to my heart already, but I didn't enjoy this story as much as the first one. A year and a half after the events we witnessed in the first volume has passed and Dunk (who still isn't very successful at being addressed as Ser Duncan the T all"), and his squire Egg have taken service with the elderly Ser Eustace.

The old man lives in the glory days of the past and he has some territorial issues with the "Red Widow" (how I like strong women evil or not). There's a drought on, and water is being stolen, and peasant workers are somehow bulied because of that, something Dunk wants to prevent. So off he goes to try and solve the situation as the best of knights but he discovers that somebody has been lying to him. Knighthood is not so honourable here as it was in the previous volume, Dunk starts to see its dark side and to wonder if he is a knight or a regular guy and what is better, but he lives up to his own vision of knight's despite most of the times that's going to put him in danger. Not brilliant but enjoyable

    When I reviewed THE HEDGE KNIGHT, I very much enjoyed it and recommended people check it out in comic book format rather than short story. While George R.R. Martin's prose is very good here, nothing is lost and much gained with its adaptation into art. The stories are short and to the point anyway, which makes me think I wish George would just work on these if he doesn't feel like finishing A SONG OF ICE AND FIRE.

The stories are short and to the point anyway, which makes me think I wish George would just work on these if he doesn't feel like finishing A SONG OF ICE AND FIRE. I could do with some low fantasy feel good stories to contrast with some of the grimdark I read (and love). The premise for THE SWORN SWORD is that Dunk and Egg are sworn to a very-very low ranking lord in the middle of the Reach. The tower the man lives in is neighbor of Coldmoat, which is a fairly nice (if not great) castle with its own river. A dispute over said river and its waters leads to a "war" that will undoubtedly end only one way but which our heroes' lord is fairly willing to do (since he's an old man with no children as well as a warrior). Along the way, they meet a woman wrongly identified as a femme fatale and a fairly epic jousting duel. This is probably my favorite of the Dunk and Egg stories and I think it works fabulous in a visual form. The Red Widow is beautiful and fun even if George R.R. Martin isn't going to let her wed a hedge knight. I also liked the ending for a subversion of expectations that, ironically, was a sensible strategy all along. 5/5

    An interesting continuation of Hedge Knight which follows the story of Dunk and Egg a year after the preceding book. The story was a bit trivial as it was mainly a device to show how noble of a knight Dunk is despite his poor beginnings. The secondary theme to this novella revolves around a rebellion between brothers for the crown. It basically says that the winners are always good and the losers are always evil despite the fact that they were both fighting for who they thought was the true king An interesting continuation of Hedge Knight which follows the story of Dunk and Egg a year after the preceding book.

It basically says that the winners are always good and the losers are always evil despite the fact that they were both fighting for who they thought was the true king. I recommend this to people that read and liked Hedge Knight. I don't see much value as a side story in the universe of A Song of Fire and Ice by itself.

    I wish I remembered the first book a bit better, but that didn't keep me from thoroughly enjoying the storytelling and gorgeous artwork of the second Hedge Knight book. I could follow Duncan and Egg around Westeros for many more adventures.

    The hedge knight keeps getting better and better. Dunk the lunk and Egg make such a great companionship I reckon there has never been a much better matched knight and squire pair in fiction, least of all in ASOIAF. Great story, beautiful artwork as always.

    (3,6 of 5 for SOIaF themed fantasy in kind of OK comics version) Don't expect much from comic adaptations and you will be content with what's coming. That's a golden rule and it confirms with this comic book. The art is OK-ish. Very generic style, I like it somewhere (knights and swords look quite good and the Red Widow looks beautiful, as she should... but maybe the inker should've left the freckles only to the colourist), but overall it's dull and most of the facial expressions look weird.

The story is good, there are few nice twists to it, but the adaptation has the illness of most of the adaptations - being (sometimes) too much literal, transcriptive. So the middle of the book (basically anything concerning the history and ser Eustace's tales) is so dry, slow and tasteless. But the ending is good. Nice and juicy, bittersweet as things should be in this type of fantasy. It washed off the dry taste of some chapters before, but still...

    After reading the original story I couldn't contain myself reading the graphic novel. The drawings bring to life the characters - I was specially interested to see the battle scenes, read widow, cold moat, Ser Bennis the Brown. It was well rendered - and 4 stars because these are the stories I love. After reading the original story I couldn't contain myself reading the graphic novel.

    Once a month, send me to Westeros, and I am recharged. Be it graphic novel or tonnes of words. Addiction has seeped inside me in such a way, and I'm not complaining. Another brilliant graphic novel based on the prequel'ish book. Illustrations are brilliant, storyline crisp, makes a perfect adaptation of my favourite story out of the three Dunk and Egg ones.

Two years after the events of the first story, Ser Duncan the Tall (Dunk) and Egg are in the service of Ser Eustace, an embittered and delusional old knight who drags them into his feud with his neighbour, the “Red Widow.” The situation is aggravated by Ser Eustace’s other retainer, the lazy, filthy, negative Ser Bennis of the Brown Shield.

The “Red Widow” turns out to be young Lady Rohanne, another one of those pretty redheads. (Nothing against redheads, but they sure seem to turn up in stories and especially graphic novels a lot). She has a lot to prove and is sometimes shrewish, though also very clever. There’s a weird (IMO) attraction between her and Dunk, even though he hasn’t forgotten about but has apparently still not caught up with Tanselle. There are a lot of machinations and blame-throwing, nearly turning into a mini-war between the estates. Again, the art was stunning and reason enough to read the book.

Many secrets are hidden in these graphic novels, and it would be to the delight of the lovers of the LOIAR readers to find them herein. Dunk and Egg are now roam Westeros as hedge knights offering their services as hedge knights offering their services for meat,mead, and occasional lodgings. As the second part of the tale begins they find themselves in the service of Ser Eustace, an aged knight who's glory has long past. A drought has plagued his fiefdom and it is now up to Dunk and Egg to find the source or lack of which, to the drought. But the heat is the source of agony for Dunk and he finds himself being plagued by the weight of his armour and the presence of an I easy feeling of dark magyck, and dread. I was pleasantly surprised by the illustrations since I disliked the style of the "Game of Thrones" graphic novels intensely. This style of artwork is far more attractive and very richly detailed. The rounded edges on the armour and the faces make the characters much more human and relatable. I enjoyed this not just for the illustrations but for the content, many little pieces of information were imparted that cleared up some questions that I had concerning a certain family heritage. Have I piqued you interest? I certainly hope so.

This book is about the intricate webs that bind the different characters into loyalties they frequently wish they could flee.

Martin's story and political intrigue comes through in spades, and Miller's art is WONDERFUL. His characters are well defined, and the details of the livery of the different houses and the action scenes RULE. Must read.

    I didn’t like this short story in the book either because I felt unfair. At last Dunk experienced what love was like, I think he would have deserved the Red Widow, they would have been much better together. But unfortunately the noble origin... suck!

It was as if Egg looked different. “I have heard a thousand empty courtesies in my time, but you are the first knight who ever said "pissing" in my presence.

    A must for ASOIAF maniacs like myself. If you really love the world of ASOIAF you shouldn't skip this one. Some really great background on the Blackfyre rebellion. Also, an interesting look at Bloodraven's role in the rebellion. He's only going to be increasingly relevant in future ASOIAF volumes. And I just love Dunk. What a character. Plus every time I see his shield I think of Brienne and then my heart hurts. A must for ASOIAF maniacs like myself. If you really love the world of ASOIAF you shouldn't skip this one.

    Enjoyed this much more than the first volume of the Hedge Knight and definitely more than the Game of Thrones graphic novel adaptation. I'm not sure if it was an adjusting of the panel layouts and the speech bubbles (I could hardly read any of the font in the GOT GN). Interesting glimpse into the history of Westeros, although I wanted a family tree of the Targaryans, since I always get their names mixed up.... The romance also felt a bit forced but wasn't horribly done. Enjoyed this much more than the first volume of the Hedge Knight and definitely more than the Game of Thrones graphic novel adaptation.

    This was an ebook, but I don't see that edition available. It was a good continuing adventure of Dunk & Egg right on par with the Hedge Knight. It takes place just a year or so after that story, so about a century before the main series. Well worth reading. This was an ebook, but I don't see that edition available.
