San Diego, CA (February 16, 2011) – IDW Publishing and HBO are pleased to announce the launch of the first hardcover, True Blood comic collection, TRUE BLOOD: ALL TOGETHER NOW. This compilation of all six issues from the first series of the mega-hits comics will also feature bonus content, including a cover gallery, and is now available in bookstores throughout North America.
“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,” stated show creator Alan Ball.
Featuring the same erotically-charged romance, wry humor, intriguing mystery and suspense the show has become known for, the story treats readers to new insights of their favorite characters. 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 are all coerced to dig deep and tell painful memories from their past.
Developed with show creator Alan Ball, along with series writers Elisabeth Finch and Kate Barnow, ALL TOGETHER NOW was co-written by David Tischman and Mariah Huehner. The series was beautifully illustrated by top tier artist David Messina, with additional art by renowned artists J. Scott Campbell, Joe Corroney, and Andrew Currie.
TRUE BLOOD: ALL TOGETHER NOW ($24.99, 160 pages, hard cover, full color) will be available in stores in February 2011.
