"This heroic fantasy tale reinvigorates the tired category of sword and sorcery fiction by emphasizing the human angle. Though it's adapted from a story set in the magical world of Martin's popular 'Song of Ice and Fire' novels, it contains very little sorcery, and the swords are less important than the people who wield them."

A century before the events of New York Times bestselling author George R.R. Martin's epic series 'A Song of Ice and Fire', a squire named Dunk picks up the sword and shield of his dead master and enters a tournament to begin his career as a knight. But "Ser Duncan" has much to learn about this world of knights and nobles, and as he attempts to find a sponsor who will allow him to enter the tournament, he makes friends and enemies readily. Dunk is a capable fighter and has a strong sense of honor, but is that enough for him to become a true knight in the eyes of the others, or is he just a young man living a delusion and putting those he knows in grave danger? Adapted from the popular novella by George R.R. Martin, this special edition of 'The Hedge Knight' celebrates the original graphic novel, which was beloved by fans and critics alike for its deep storytelling and breathtaking visuals - so much so that the first edition became one of the bestselling graphic novels of 2004!
