Vaughan & Chiang's "Paper Girls" Builds a Familiar Yet Disconcerting World
A week after the release of the official one-sheet for HBO’s Game of Thrones, IGN.com has premiered four character posters spotlighting Mark Addy as King Robert Baratheon, Sean Bean as Lord Eddard “Ned” Stark, Lena Headey as Queen Cersei Lannister and Emilia Clarke as Daenerys Targaryen.
What’s more, the official Game of Thrones YouTube channel has three more videos showcasing the noble houses from the adaptation of George R.R. Martin’s bestselling fantasy epic: House Targaryen, House Baratheon and House Lannister (we saw House Stark just yesterday).
Game of Thrones is set primarily on the mythical medieval continent of Westeros, whose seven ancient kingdoms are torn between a dynastic civil war, a threat of invasion from the North and the impending return of the rightful heir to the Iron Throne. The 10-episode first season premieres Sunday, April 17, at 9 p.m. ET/PT.
