Graphic Novels Next On Charlaine Harris’ List!

Charlaine Harris, author of The Southern Vampire MysteriesCharlaine Harris, author of The Southern Vampire Mysteries aka: The Sookie Stackhouse Novels, has recently spoken up about her plans to create a new 3-book series of graphic novels! Harris revealed:

“I’m going to be working on a graphic novel next. I’m very excited about that. It’s called Cemetery Girl with Christopher Golden, and it’s a very exciting opportunity.”

The article also states that Harris first considered creating this storyline as a traditional novel, but decided to put it on hold until the horror and fantasy author, Christopher Golden (Hellboy/Buffy the Vampire Slayer), convinced her that it would be an excellent fit for a graphic novel series.  The graphic novel series will be centered on a woman who finds herself living in a cemetery with no recollection of her past, but she has a clear sense of some sort of mysterious burden hanging over her head.  No artist has joined Harris and Golden in their creation of the series yet, but Harris added:

“The publishing company that I’ve been with, Penguin, is going into graphic novels, so it’s a great book with a very original concept.”

I have never really taken an interest in graphic novels, but with Charlaine Harris on board, I’m game!  With as much as she has accomplished in her past writing escapades, you know that a graphic novel series will be just as amazing as the rest of her work!  What do you all think about Charlaine’s idea for a new series?  A woman+a cemetery+amnesia+worry is bound to equal a thrilling new series!  Any thoughts on the topic?  Be sure to leave us your comments below!
