"'The Hedge Knight' is well worth picking up and remains a stunning example of both the visual and literary potential of the comic book medium."

The first adaptation of New York Times bestselling author George R.R. Martin's prequel to 'A Song of Ice of Fire', the acclaimed 'Hedge Knight', introduced readers to Ser Dunk, the endearing young man in search of an exciting life as a knight and the harsh realities he must face in doing so. 'Hedge Knight II: Sworn Sword' continues the tale.
More than a year after Dunk put his manhood on the line in Ashford Meadow, he and partner Egg enter Standfast, a region in peril during a severe drought brought on by animosity between Standfast's Ser Eustace and the beautiful but fearsome Lady Rohanne, who is labelled in hushed whispers as the Red Widow. What follows is a drama full of the grace notes of humanity, as Martin tells his stories with characters and situations that have relatable, down-to-earth traits - with the added excitement of medieval fantasy splendor!
