The 3 (so far) "Dunk & Egg" tales take place a few generations before the events of A Game of Thrones- and they cover life in the fall out of the Targaryen schism known as the "Blackfyre" rebellion. Long story short, some Targ bastards got legitimized upon their King/Father's death, and an uprising for the Iron Throne happened. The Blackfyres lost, leaving the question of "Did you support the Black or the Red [Dragon]?" to be a dangerous political statement in its own right.
15 years after that uprising, its affects are still felt across Westeros.
The first 2 Dunk & Egg tales were made into graphic novels, and these editions are great. #1, the Hedge Knight introduces you Dunk & Egg and #2, the Sworn Sword, is a bit of standalone adventure. From what I understand, George RR Martin has plans for more of these, and they tend to be a bit more stand-alone in nature than his other writing.
In short, if you like the politics and intricacy of Westeros, but long for something a little less grim (but no less bittersweet), READ THESE. Ser Duncan the Tall (Dunk) is what Sansa Stark would call a "true knight," and would make good pals with the likes of Ned Stark, Davos Seaworth, and Brienne of Tarth.
This graphic novel is beautifully illustrated just like the first one and kept me entertained throughout. Afterwards I looked for the final adaptation (The Mystery Knight) only to realize that that novella hasn't been adapted yet! This was disappointing but I did some research and it does seem like they are planning to complete the trio (hopefully soon).

George R R Martin has been slipping us bits of Ser Dunk and Egg, so you may well be familiar with this prequel to Game of Throwns/Fire and Ice. Read morePublished 21 days ago by Kindle Customer
What a shame such talent has gone to waste on a man who would rather write comic books than finish a best-selling series (A Song of Ice and Fire). Read morePublished 21 days ago by Richard L. Chism
