Japanese Covers for Game of Thrones books

I am a big fan of the Game of Thrones series that premiered on HBO earlier this year. Being a epic fantasy geek I was looking for a excuse to blog about the series and I have just found it. George R.R. Martin’s “A Song of Fire and Ice” series of books has gotten thier covers Manga-ized in Japan and man do they looks epic.

The Japanese covers were done by Japanese artists Ken Sugawara, Yasushi Suzuki and Noriko Meguro. The manga look and different art styles of the artists really put the North American covers to shame. Makes me start to fantasize about all the books as manga or anime… My favourite covers can be seen below.
