I've heard that some of the Dunk and Egg novellas are part of larger collections books from Martin. I've read two of the standalone comics, but now I want to read the actual words now that the latest book is out. What books do I need to buy and in what order should I read them?

    Did you check awoiaf.westeros.org/index.php/Dunk_and_Egg ? I think all 3 are listed... – KutuluMike Oct 6 '15 at 16:16
  • @MikeEdenfield I had not, thanks for the link. If you give that link in an answer with a quick summary I'll accept it right away! – Telestia Oct 6 '15 at 16:28
  • He just released a collection called A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms which contains all 3 of the currently released Dunk and Egg novellas. – Mkalafut Oct 6 '15 at 19:42

As far as I understand, the graphic novels are intended to be faithful adaptations of the books (I have not read the graphic novels), so I wouldn't expect to get any new plot or character development from them.

Having said that, if you want the original novellas, you can find them in these places:

(A quick note about the last two: originally the anthologies were published as one large hard-cover volume. For the mass-market paperbacks, they were split up into multiple smaller volumes, for which I've listed only the one that has the Dunk and Egg novella.)

The anthologies are pretty impressive just on their own, so I'd recommend you pick them up. However, if you're only interested in the Dunk and Egg portions, as @TGnat points out, there is now a single volume collection of the first three, called A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms.

The ASoIaF wiki has links to other published editions of each of these as well as some information about possible future novellas.

    The graphic novels are pretty much a word-to-word adaptation. So, yes, very faithful. OP may also opt for the upcoming collection "A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms" that has all three. – System Down Oct 6 '15 at 17:08
  • @SystemDown "A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms" was released today! – TGnat Oct 6 '15 at 17:47
