I was in the mood for a graphic novel and pulled True Blood All Together Now by Alan Ball, David Tischman, Mariah Huehner, and David Messina off my TBR mountain. It has been there since March 14, 2011. This is an original story set in the True Blood world.
Blood and sex mix on a hot rainy night at Merlotte's, when Sookie and her friends are trapped by a vengeful spirit who feeds on shame. People die and dirty secrets are revealed as Sookie, Bill, Eric, Sam, Tara, Jason, and Lafayette and are all coerced to dig deep and tell painful memories from their past — those things we all have locked within us that we never tell another living soul! Bon Temps, Louisiana has never been stranger, or more twisted, in a story co-plotted by True Blood series creator Alan Ball, with a script by David Tischman (Bite Club) and Mariah Huehner, and lush art by David Messina (Star Trek: Countdown).

Bon Temps is a strange place to live these days.
Friday 56:
During the 1500s I found myself in one of those small European countries with an unpronounceable name.
I bought this one because I am a fan of True Blood even though I have to wait for the DVDs to catch up on each season since I don't subscribe to whatever cable channel it is on to watch the series. I didn't realize until I picked it up now that it is an original story.


  1. Good paragraphs both of them.
    Not a book for me I'm afraid. I tried watching the tv show and found the mixture of blood and sex to be a total turn off.
    Different tastes... :-)

  2. Great excerpts....I can relate to having to wait for the of my favorites series became unavailable to me in the final season!


  3. I love the True Blood books and the tv show, too, but haven't read the graphic novel. Great choice. :) (Sookie's picture is weird.....)

  4. Good excerpts - I actually follow the series on HBO in real

    Here are my Friday Meme's-

  5. I watched the very first episode of this show and never went back.

  6. So many places in Europe have unpronounceable least for those of us who don't live there. :-) Could be almost anywhere....

    Here's my post:

  7. I never got into True Blood. But I guess the occasional TV fluff is fun! TV show into greaphic novel sounds like a new genre!

    My Friday 56 is about bribes :)
