Popular prose authors and the comics medium are hardly strangers these days - heck, this very blog has an adaptations tag - but this new project is something relatively unique: A novelist creating an all-original graphic novel series!
And what a novelist, too. Charlaine Harris is the creator of the Sookie Stackhouse series, inspiration for the TV show True Blood (which itself has been adapted into comics) along with series that are lesser-known but still beloved by their fans. Sookie Stackhouse is drawing towards a close - 13 books are planned in total - and next comes a brand new series, Cemetery Girl!
Harris originally planned for Cemetery Girl to be another novel series, but fellow author Christopher Golden encouraged her to give it a shot as a comic.
No artist has signed on to the project just yet, but so far Cemetery Girl is planned to be a three-book saga. Here's hoping readers who fell in love with Harris's other series will follow her into this new endeavor, and eventually comics at large!
