George R.R. Martin Adaptation Opens New Amazon Comic Imprint

Amazon has launched its own comic book imprint called Jet City, adapting stories by George R.R. MartinHugh Howey and Neal Stephenson.

The comics will be released in Kindle editions “as standalone comics, as serialized comics released over multiple episodes, and as bundled graphic novels.” The graphic novels will also be sold as print editions on Amazon and comic book sellers. In October, the imprint will adapt “Meathouse Man,” a George R.R. Martin short story. Martin had this statement, in the release:

My fans have been clamoring for the return of Dunk & Egg ever since the graphic novels of “The Hedge Knight” and “The Sworn Sword” went out of print several years ago … so I am delighted to announce that Jet City Comics is bringing them back—newly formatted for digital readers, and in paper for those who still prefer the traditional formats. And Jet City will be bringing you something new as well: the graphic novel “Meathouse Man,” adapted from one of my strangest, darkest, and most twisted short stories by the amazingly talented Raya Golden. I’m pleased and excited to be a part of Jet City’s takeoff. May they fly high.
