This will probably be my shortest ever article for this site. I just found a fascinating new interview on the Marvel website with George R. R. Martin, the writer of The Song of Ice and Fire fantasy book series (inspiration for the popular Game of Thrones TV series, soon to begin its second season). I was surprised to find he was a comic book devotee, a true believer, but looking back it makes sense. The huge cast and complex continuity of his Song of Ice and Fire series does resemble the fictional universes of DC and Marvel in scope. Enough of my jibber-jabber, read the article!
