Adult Coloring Books?

I visited New York again this summer, and while I was at the airport, I noticed a couple of odd books in one of the terminal bookstores. They were coloring books: one for Game of Thrones, and the other one for Outlander. Both of these are extremely violent, sexually explicit cable series, and neither of them would be appropriate for children. So then why are there coloring books based on these shows? These coloring books are going to make little kids want to see these shows, and they might get traumatized if they succeed in watching them.

Unless, of course, adults are coloring in pictures in coloring books nowadays?
