This is too cool for words.
Fans of Patricia Briggs’s Mercy Thompson books might have heard the good news that Dabel Brothers Publishing will be releasing a 4-part comic book miniseries based on the books this November, titled Mercy Thompson: Homecoming. Patricia Briggs herself penned the storyline, with art done by Francis Tsai (of Marvel Adventures Spider-Man and Iron Man, and Impaler fame). Check out the press release from Dabel Brothers HERE.
So, the kicker is, the first eleven pages are available for download online! See two pages of the art below:
Mercy looks a little to pretty for my tastes here, and judging from the art, I think I still prefer the original covers for the books (see below)–but still, the comic artwork looks great (At least it isn’t as nearly as odd as the Anita Blake comic books depictions!). I’m excited.
Bone Crossed, pictured above, is book 4 in the Mercy series, to be published in February 2009. During the wait, I’ll be getting my Mercy fix with the comics.
