‘True Blood’ Author’s Harper Connelly Series Gets Comic Book Adaptation
As we mentioned back in September, HBO’s vampire drama “True Blood” has more connections to comics than you might think — and now you can add another one to the list. Charlaine Harris, author of the Sookie Stackhouse novels that inspire the television series, will make her comics debut this year.
“Grave Sight,” the first book in Harris’ series of novels about a woman named Harper Connelly who can sense the final moments of the recently deceased, will be adapted by Dynamite Entertainment into a comic book hitting shelves in 2010.
“I’m thrilled to join such great writers,” said Harris in an official statement announcing the project. “I’m excited about seeing a different vision of my novels, and I’ve seen enough of the Dynamite Entertainment to know this will be an interesting and entertaining process.”

This is great news. I’ve read the first two books in the Harper Connelly series, and they’re good. I’d love to see it made into a series at some point. But a comic adaptions will do for now. Are you interested in the series in comic form?
