IDW to publish “True Blood” comic

IDW Publishing has partnered with HBO to publish comics based on its “True Blood” television series.

Developed in conjunction with the show’s Oscar-winning creator Alan Ball, the book will debut at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con in July.

“I am very excited to be introducing the “True Blood” comic book series. These graphic novels are a great companion to the series & we are pleased that the popularity of the show is allowing it to branch out into different mediums,” said Ball.

Running for an initial six issues, the comic is scripted by writers Kate Barnow and Elisabeth Finch, in collaboration with David Tischman & Mariah Huehner. Artwork is provided by David Messina and a cover design by J. Scott Campbell.

“True Blood is one of the most exciting dramas on television and has been eagerly anticipated by comics fans for a long time. We are very excited to bring more of this great entertainment franchise to fans,” said IDW CEO Ted Adams.

“True Blood” is an American television drama series created and produced by Alan Ball. It is based on the The Southern Vampire Mysteries series of novels by Charlaine Harris, and details the co-existence of vampires and humans in Bon Temps, a fictional small Louisiana town. The series centers on Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin), a telepathic waitress at a bar, who falls in love with vampire Bill Compton (Stephen Moyer).

The show is broadcast on the premium cable network HBO in the United States. It is produced by HBO in association with Ball’s production company, Your Face Goes Here Entertainment. It premiered on September 7, 2008.

The first season received critical acclaim and won several awards, including one Golden Globe and an Emmy. The show’s second 12-episode season premiered on June 14, 2009. On July 30, 2009, HBO confirmed that True Blood would be renewed for a third season, which began shooting on December 3, 2009. It will air beginning June 13, 2010, according to HBO.
