HBO’s official Twitter account for its hit series “True Blood” reported in from WonderCon with the news that a True Blood comic series developed by Alan Ball himself and published by IDW is coming in July. Looks like we’re in for a long, hot summer indeed!
Here’s a description from the HBO Store:
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 comics with IDW Publishing! This six-issue series kicks off in July [at the San Diego Comic-Con], and True Blood fans can pre-order exclusively with HBO.com!
In this tantalizing series spinning out of the hit show, 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, than in this story co-plotted by TRUE BLOOD series creator Alan Ball with a script by David Tischman (Bite Club) and Mariah Huehner, featuring lush art by David Messina.
True Blood‘s official Facebook page posted the below video in which Ball sends a message to the fans about what they can expect from the comic. Hit the Facebook link for more, follow @TrueBloodHBO on Twitter, and visit “True Blood” on HBO.com.
