HBO and Dark Horse Announce Game of Thrones Merchandise Partnership
We’ve been on the fence as far as covering the wildly popular “Game of Thrones”, just mentioning the show here and there as it’s seemed appropriate, but this latest news to cross our desk is just too cool to ignore: Dark Horse Deluxe is partnering with HBO on a vast “Game of Thrones” product line debuting in the spring of 2012, leading up to the show’s second season premiere in April. Read on for the details!

Based on the best-selling fantasy book series A Song of Ice and Fire by George R. R. Martin, ‘Game of Thrones’ debuted on HBO in March 2011. In a land where summers span decades and winters can last a lifetime, trouble is brewing. From the scheming south and the savage eastern lands, to the frozen north and the ancient Wall that protects the realm from the darkness beyond, two powerful families are engaged in a deadly cat-and-mouse game for control of the Seven Kingdoms of Westeros. As betrayal, lust, intrigue, and supernatural forces shake the four corners of the Kingdoms, their bloody struggle for the Iron Throne will have unforeseen and far-reaching consequences.
