Lately I’ve been getting a lot of Richelle Mead artwork for her upcoming comic book for DARK SWAN: STORM BORN, which comes out May 18. (OK — who thinks of these book titles?) Here’s the description of the story:
Dark Swan: Storm Born follows Eugenie Markham, a free-lance shaman who battles ghosts and fey that sneak into our world from the Otherworld. When an alarming prophecy suddenly makes her every Otherworldly creature’s object of desire, Eugenie must dodge their advances while also fighting a dark power rising within her.
This is not to be confused with Mead’s graphic novel — based on the wildly popular VAMPIRE ACADEMY series — which is scheduled to be released Aug. 23. USA TODAY got a sneak peak of some of the stills. And here’s a snippet from their story:
Adapted from Mead’s prose by Leigh Dragoon, the Vampire Academy graphic novel (Penguin/Razorbill) is slated to be released Aug. 23 — the same day the first chapter of Mead’s spinoff series, Bloodlines, arrives in stores and the same week her first baby is due.
