Drawings: From Richelle Mead’s ‘Dark Swan’ comic book April 20, 2011

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.

You can see their COOL SLIDE SHOW and read the entire USA Today story HERE.

And here’s more artwork from the DARK STORM comic book. (All images courtesy of Sea Lion Books)

I love the artwork from this stuff, but I’m just not into the comic book version of novels. (Or graphic novels.) I guess I’m just not the demographic. I do like the individual pics, tho!

Anyone out there who loves the books turned into graphic novels?


p.s. I even bought Diana Gabaldon’s graphic novel based on Outlander and it didn’t do a whole lot for me!

I really like the Dark Swan series. In fact, I recently finished the third book in the series – Iron Crowned. I am hit and miss with books turned into graphic novels – although, in general, I do like to read graphic novels. I really enjoy Joss Whedon’s Buffy season 8 graphic novels. The artwork shown here looks pretty spot on.
