It seems the actor has also has his own ideas as to how the lives in Bon Temps should turn out. How excited is the comic book fan now turned writer? Michael noted:

“Co-Writing the TRUE BLOOD comic is a dream come true both as a performer on the show and as longtime comic fan. It’s a real privilege to build on the rapidly growing True Blood mythology.”

What’s even better than a cast member helping create the True Blood mythology? Well, the first six issues of the successful comic will be released in a hardcover titled “True Blood: All Together Now” and will be released on February 15. This gives fans a perfect opportunity to check out the story being pursued in the comics before jumping into the newest story arc of the second series of comics beginning the 23rd.
