Publishers Have Announced a Monthly Release!
According to IDW Publishing the TRUE BLOOD comic book series has become one of their most popular titles. Since its first issue was published by IDW in July 2010, each installment has given Truebies a deeper insight into their favorite characters. Now, a new comic will be released every month. Alan Ball, the show’s creator, says about the series:
“The comics are a great way to continue telling True Blood stories off screen. With this new ongoing series, Truebies will be able to find a new comic in stores every month. We’ll also have even more room to create in-depth drama and further explore the world of Bon Temps.”
After IDW and HBO reached the New York Times‘ Best-Selling First Comic Collection with their compilation of ALL TOGETHER NOW, they released the second compilation entitled TAINTED LOVE. All Together Now is about a woodland monster who ravages Merlotte’s and Tainted Love revolves around Jessica ingesting some poisoned bottles of True Blood and Bill‘s search for its origin. In stores now, the third mini-series (not yet compiled) is called THE FRENCH QUARTER and:
“finds Sookie and Eric in New Orleans tracking a killer, whom Eric and Godric thought they killed in Paris more than 200 years ago, while Bill is in town investigating a local Hep-D outbreak that may be connected to the killer’s latest victims. Meanwhile, back in Bon Temps, Truebies will wonder why Pam is hanging out at Merlotte’s and what it is she wants with Lafayette.”
The French Quarter issues will be compiled as a series and released in March 2012.
