‘True Blood’ Actor Michael McMillian To Co-Write ‘True Blood’ Comic Book If you haven’t been reading the “True Blood” comic book series, perhaps the direct involvement of a “True Blood” cast member might push you over the fence.

IDW Publishing and HBO announced in a press release today that actor and “Lucid” creator Michael McMillian, who stars on “True Blood” as the nefarious Reverend Steve Newlin, is lending his talents as a co-writer to the television-turned-comic book series. He’ll co-author the second arc of “True Blood” alongside writer Marc Andreyko, with Joe Corroney tapped for art duties.

“Co-writing the ‘True Blood’ comic is a dream come true both as a performer on the show and as a longtime comic fan,” McMillian said in a statement. “It’s a real privilege to build on the rapidly growing ‘True Blood’ mythology.”
