Yeah, characters who were made more sympathetic in the TV version (Sandor, Theon, Cersei, Robert, Jaime, Viserys) are going to be the less-sympathetic/total jerks they were in the books in this comic adaptation.
Since when was Viserys even remotely sympathetic in the TV show?
Sympathetic may be the wrong word, but he wasn't the one-note character he was in the first book.
And since when was that a bad thing, to make him less of a one-note? (Not saying you mean this, but...)

People often seem to overlook that the books are written from the perspectives of unreliable narrators. Of course many characters will come off more one-note that way, compared to what an "objective view" of them might have been.
