Fevre River is proud to announce STARPORT,  a new hardcover graphic novel coming March 2019 from Bantam!

Based on one of the TV pilots George wrote in the 90’s during his first run in Hollywood, this rarely seen story will be illustrated in full color by Hugo Award-nominated artist Raya Golden (Facebook – @rayagoldenillustration), and assisted by her artistic accomplice Rachel Hilley. (Instagram- @RLHilley) Both currently local New Mexican artists.

This one of a kind bright, bold and brilliant graphic novel brings Martin’s singular vision to rollicking life.

Read the short description below and watch for more news on STARPORT!



Ten years ago, representatives from an interstellar collective of 314 alien

species landed on Earth, inviting us to become number 315. Now, after seemingly

endless delays, the Starport in Chicago is operational, a destination for diplomats,

merchants, and tourists alike. Inside, visitors are governed by intergalactic treaty.

Outside, the streets belong to Chicago’s finest.


Charlie Baker, newly promoted to the district that oversees alien affairs, is

eager to put to practical use his enthusiasm for all things extraterrestrial; he just

never expected to arrive on his first day in the back of a police cruiser. Lieutenant

Bobbi Kelleher is married to the job, which often puts her in conflict with Lyhanne

Nhar-Lys, security champion of Starport and one of the galaxy’s fiercest warriors.

Undercover with a gang of anti-alien extremists, Detective Aaron Stein has no

problem mixing business with pleasure–until he stumbles upon evidence of a plot

to assassinate a controversial trade envoy with a cache of stolen ray guns. Now

the Chicago PD must stop these nutjobs before they piss off the entire universe.


Based on a  1997 TV pilot script written by George R. R. Martin and adapted and

illustrated in full color by Hugo Award-nominated artist Raya Golden, this bold and

brilliant graphic novel adaptation brings Martin’s singular vision to rollicking life.

With all the intrigue, ingenuity, and atmosphere that made A Game of Thrones a

worldwide phenomenon, Starport launches a new chapter in the career of a sci-fi/fantasy superstar.

    Awesome news!
    If you could answer, I would to know two things about it:
    1. Who’s adapting the scrpits?
    2. The script version using for the adaptation is the “second script” same as on Quartet? I bet it is, for it’s GRRM’s favorite, but it would be good to know

    Thanks so much

      1.) The script was fully adapted by Raya Golden and edited by Anne Groell, there was only one pilot script to work from, but their were several versions that she put together to make a fun filled graphic novel.

      2.) I’m not sure what you mean when you say “second script” as I mentioned their was only one pilot script.

      • Arthur Maia says:

        On the commentary session to Starport on the Quartet collection, GRRM mentions 3 versions of the script:
        – The first, Genesis Draft (too long for filming)
        – the second, Earthquake Draft (which is included on the collection)
        – the third, the Official First Draft (which was close to be filmed back then)

        Any of the choices, I’m sure will be a great one. Personally, I grive more for Starport than for Doorways, and I will love to see it coming to comic book pages

  • LadyBird says:

    Sounds like Men in Black, GRRM style 😉 Can’t wait to see it!

  • Matt says:

    This makes me think of Asimov’s humorous mystery “I’m in Marsport without Hilda” which if you haven’t read you ought to.

    Sounds good to me, pre-order locked in.
