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! Bon Temps, Louisiana has never been stranger, or more twisted, in a story co-plotted by TRUE BLOOD series creator Alan Ball, with a script by David Tischman (Bite Club) and Mariah Huehner, and lush art by David Messina (Star Trek: Countdown).
I love the books and I like the television show a lot but the comic to me was a little out there. Well, it might not be for the tv show but definitely for the book series. What ever type of creature that was in this graphic novel should have been in a superhero comic at least that’s what it reminded me of. I just don’t feel that this type of creature would have been in the book series, but as for the tv show you can never tell what kind of crazy they will come up with.
I have to say that the graphic art was absolutely gorgeous. The art just popped right off the page. This graphic novels art is just as spectacular as the art done for Laurell K. Hamilton in her graphic novels series of Anita Blake. Although what make this novel special is the full color photos of the cast from the tv show through out the book.
I cant say this is one of my favorite but I was pleasantly surprised by the art works. I am looking forward to reading more because these are nice to read between books and the tv show.
