Dresden Files Comic Announced

Friday, Oct 05, 2007 at 4:50pm

In his continuing quest to bring his creation Harry Dresden to every possible medium, author Jim Butcher has signed a deal with Dabel Brothers Productions to create a comic book based on his popular Dresden Files series.

This is welcome news if you were, like I was, a fan of the Sci-Fi network's short lived television series featuring Paul Blackthorne, or those of us who have been waiting with baited breath for the Dresden Files Roleplaying Game to release. I've been reading Butcher for years now, and one Dresden Files novel a year just isn't enough.

Dabel Brothers are behind acclaimed adaptations of George R.R. Martin's Hedge Knight and Sworn Sword novellas as well as Laurell K. Hamilton's Anita Blake novel Guilty Pleasures.

Butcher will be assisting in the writing chores, and will be excerting his creative input throughout the series. In addition to adapting the Harry Dresden story novel by novel, Butcher also plans on dropping in some side trips to fill in time lapses between the books.

As yet there has been no announcement of Butcher's collaborators, but the author vows to post both names and promo art as soon as they are available on his website.
