First Six Pages Of The True Blood Comic Are Just As Dirty As The Show

Check out four different covers, and the first six pages, of IDW's True Blood comic. We're happy to find that it's just as wonderfully pervy as our favorite vampire show, including almost see-through sketches of Sookie's work-wear in the rain.

IDW's True Blood comic is drawn by David Messina and written by Alan Ball, Elisabeth Finch, Kate Barnow, David Tischman and Mariah Huehner. The miniseries will have six issues total. Here's the official synopsis:

In this tantalizing series spinning out of the hit show, 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!

DISCUSSION

I dunno; the dirtiness quotient of the HBO series is pretty high, as is the wont of HBO series. I'm not sure the sexy Sookie drawings are anything but par for the course for most comics nowadays. At least judging from pics of comics I see here on io9; I'm not an avid comic reader. It could very well be that io9 has a high sexiness quotient vis a vis the comic pics it posts. This is not a complaint.
