“We couldn’t be more pleased with the amazing success of the comics and are excited that the release of the comic collection will make the series even more accessible to fans,” said True Blood show creator Alan Ball.
The hardcover graphic compilation, True Blood: All Together Now (Volume #1) features the same erotically charged romance, wry humor, intriguing mystery and violence the original HBO series has become known for. The collection, however treats readers and fans to new insights and stories about their favorite characters. Blood and sex mix (as usual) on a hot, rainy night when Sookie, Bill, Eric, Sam Tara, Jason and Lafayette are trapped in Merlotte’s by a vengeful spirit who feeds on shame. Each are forced to dig deep, revealing painful memories and dirty secrets from their pasts.
For fans and role players, the volume is an excellent resource for their character’s back stories. For instance, it seem @PamR_TB isn’t the only vampire with a Rachel in her past… although her’s is decidedly fanfic and not affiliated with the books (comic or otherwise). It’s also a great way to fill the time between the release of Dead Reckoning and the premiere of Season 4 of the original HBO series, True Blood.
The comic books with developed with show creator Alan Ball, along with series writers Elisabeth Finch and Kate Barnow. All Together Now was co-written by David Tishman and Mariah Huehner. The books were beautifully illustrated by top-tier artist David Messina, with additional art by renowned artists J. Scott Campbell, Joe Corroney and Andrew Currie.
