I’ve been saying this all season, but I’ve literally been waiting twenty god-damned years for the current story of Game of Thrones (A Song of Ice and Fire for my book nerds) to unfold. I’m not just one of those insufferable book readers who’ll chew your ear off about how bad ass Strong Belwas is and how he should have been on the show or how I wish I got to see Lady Stoneheart on screen. I’ve been reading the books SINCE THEY CAME OUT.

I’ve been buying every book in hard cover, since 1996! I remember telling people about how cool this series was way back when and getting weird looks or comments like “I guess it’s cool, but I don’t like swords and sorcery.”

Still, I’m not one of those fans who gets mad at GRRM for taking his time with the books. I am a little upset at how the first three books came out within a few years of each other, but as the series progressed the duration between each novel grew longer…and longer…and longer…

GRRM should take his time and finish the series properly. But if that inbred, son of a aurochs cops out and submits a piss pour book…

Ugh, I was going to try to write something about this week’s strip, but Alex went and took up all the space with his nerd rage. As a writer, I found myself having to go ahead and edit his rant lest it go out in its pure form. Your welcome.
