True Blood; the GN
on 25 March 2011
I truly enjoyed this. It's a completely original story, rather than just a re-telling of one of the series, or the earlier novels.
The character likenesses aren't all photo perfect or totally consistent true, but this is why it's called "drawing" and not "photography". Equally, the story isn't "all action", but it takes place over one night, and even in a series about psychics, vampires, shapeshifters, werefolk and other supernatural entities, you don't have to have nothing but action.
The biggest issue I can see is that, despite it being scripted by Alan Ball, I'm not sure we'll see the character growth and change from this piece reflecting in the series. The novel series seems to me to be more parallel to the Tv series, and of course is way way down the road from here.
