True Blood’s Inky Debut @ Comic-Con 2010

True BloodI found out about this HBO and IDW Publishing title about a month ago and I could not be more excited about it.  Yep, that’s right folks…the True Blood comic book series!  I don’t think I even need any fancy schmancy introduction to tell you how excited fans of the show must be over this news.  The six-issue series kicks off in July.  It debuts at the San Diego Comic-Con.  Yeah!  Check out the first issue cover art and small press release below.

Alan Ball’s hit HBO series, the sensually sizzling story of the lives and loves of vampires, mind readers, and all manner of creature, comes to IDW! Blood and sex mix on a hot rainy night at Merlotte’s, when Sookie and her friends are trapped by a vengeful spirit who feeds on shame. People die and dirty secrets are revealed as Sookie, Bill, Eric, Sam, Tara, Jason, and Lafayette are all coerced to dig deep and tell painful memories from their past — those things we all have locked within us that we never tell another living soul!

Bon Temps, Louisiana has never been stranger, or more twisted, in a story co-plotted by True Blood series creator Alan Ball with a script by David Tischman (Bite Club) and Mariah Huehner and lush art by David Messina (Star Trek: Countdown). Bonus inside every issue: an exclusive pullout gatefold poster by David Messina!

    Hmm, not sure how I feel about this. I love the show and IDW puts out great material, but it’s all in the transition of bringing the storyline to the pages of a comic book. The writing will make or break this.
