Comic Book Horror by brians


IDW Publishing will adapt Ann Rice's 1996 novel Servant of the Bones. The comic book adaptaion will be a six-oart miniseries. Mariah McCourt will write the series with artwork by Renae DeLiz and Ray Dillon.  The story itself stretches from ancient Babylon to modern day New York City, telling the story of Azriel, the Servant of the Bones.  I know there's a lot of Rice fans out there and this should really be a cool comic book project!

The 32-page full-color Servant of the Bones #1 will be available August 2011 and will sell for $3.99.

From the Press Release:

In Servant of the Bones, Azriel is an immortal spirit who is bound to the gold-encased bones of his mortal body. Throughout the story, he struggles to understand whether he is a ghost, genie, demon or angel. He shares his story with the reader as he travels from an ancient Babylon of royal plots and religious upheavals to Europe during the Black Death and on to the modern world in New York City. Amidst the towers of Manhattan, he finds himself in confrontation with his own human memories and the dark forces that have sought to condemn him to a life of evil and destruction.
