True Blood Comic Book Cover from IDW Publishing Released

The cover artwork for the new True Blood Comic Book, from IDW Publishing, has been released and it features a large drawing of Sookie and Bill in the center with Eric, Sam, Jason, Jessica, Tara, and Lafayette around them.

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 and 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!

The story was developed by Alan and series writers Elisabeth Finch and Kate Barnow. It’s co-written by David Tischman and Mariah Huehner, with interior and cover art by David Messina and cover art by J. Scott Campbell.

The series will contain six, 32-page issues priced at $4.99 each with a bonus inside every issue: an exclusive pullout gatefold poster by David Messina!  So True Blood fans what are you waiting for?  Pre-order exclusively with nowHBO will begin shipping the item starting July 21, 2010.
