USA Today reports
that IDW Publishing will soon be launching a series of comics based on HBO's True Blood
series. The series will debut at the San Diego Comic-Con in July.
Creators of the blood-drenched show have teamed with comic veterans for new stories of Sookie Stackhouse, her undead lover, Bill Compton, and the rest of the sex-crazed cast of mythical Bon Temps, La.
The first issue includes four alternate covers and a story line that traps the cast with an unnamed beast in Merlotte's Bar.
The Sookie Stackhouse novels have been popular, so the comics will likely be a hit as well. The True Blood
will be published as a six issue series by IDW. You can view some images from the comics here
