Unshelved comic strip for 7/2/2011

Winner of a Game of A Game of Thrones

Our A Game of A Game of Thrones a.k.a. #ADWDcontest went wonderfully viral and resulted in a metric ton of tweets, which I gamely waded through. They ranged from geekily-overly-specific to political to pop-cultural to huh?, and I loved them all. But there can be only ten, so here they are:

The following nine tweets, in no particular order, win a free copy of George R.R. Martin's A Dance With Dragons. SPOILERS ALERT!
