Girlz 'N' Games Comic #93: Coming To The Party... Early?
There isn't much to say about this new Girlz 'N' Games comic. Basically it's a gentle dig at all those rabid Game of Thrones fans out there... and man, there are some seriously hardcore GoT fans on the Interwebs.
I mean the way some people go on and on about the TV adaptation of novelist George RR Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire, you'd think that nobody before had ever made an expensive-looking, period-set show combining graphic sex, violence and political intrigue. Granted fantasy epic Game of Thrones has dire wolves, dragons and the undead to spice up the mix but many of the same elements are there - from the stylish titles sequence with a catchy theme tune, to the large cast of predominantly British thespians, to the simple fact that recreating a centuries-old setting is damn expensive, and typically leaves no budget to depict epic battles. As a result, we just get to hear about them instead.
Anyway, you can buy the shirts Todd and Dorian are wearing, and similar apparel, here, here and here. And to round off this post here's a spoiler-filled, but very funny Game of Thrones spoof (originally from CollegeHumor), where the show is treated as if it were an old SNES cartridge video game. Enjoy.

P.P.S. The real-life Todd would like to clarify that he loved Rome. The Tudors, not so much.
