Strip by: Ian Boreham

limerick text:
Varys meant to send me to Essos, though
This chance was too good to be lost, so
I strangled the whore
Who sold me to the law
And shot Dad on the loo with a crossbow
{Tyrion Lannister holding a crossbow.}

Totally topical and up-to-the-minute, of course. :-) I actually don't like doing comics based on movies and TV shows that have just screened, (a) because I haven't usually seen them by that stage, so the comic would be stupid, and (b) because I know there are people like me who haven't seen the shows just yet and don't want to be spoiled. But after a few years, I figure it's fair game. If I had a comic that was totally spoiler-ridden, with warnings up about it, that would be a totally different thing. Hmmm... summary of GoT episode by episode in limerick form...? Hmmm...

My original version used the word "bog" rather than "loo". I'm still not sure which one-syllable term for toilet would be most widely understood.

Assembled in Inkscape using a screencap from the Game of Thrones TV series.
