If you missed your chance to grab a copy of True Blood #1 at San Diego Comic-Con or at comic-retailers, you can now pick up a copy August 25th! True Blood #1 boasted a print run of over 53,000 copies, sold through comic stores and other outlets, and offered multiple covers. All copies quickly sold out but HBO and IDW publishing have announced a second printing, which is available August 25th at retailers around the country.

The comic series still has the same sexy vibe as the television show, following the telepathic Sookie Stackhouse, vampire Bill Compton and the rest of the gang on new and exciting story lines. #1 starts with the characters all gathered at Merlotte’s bar like any typical night except this night they are taking cover and waiting out a vicious storm. Suddenly a strange force takes hold of the patrons and their emotions and ends up killing some off one by one.

The series was developed by Alan Ball, the show’s Oscar and Emmy award winning director along with  top tier artist David Messina,  series writers Elisabeth Finch and Kate Barnow, and co-written by David Tischman and Mariah Huehner.

True Blood #1 (of 6, 2nd printing, 32 pages, full color, $3.99) will be available in stores on August 25th. Diamond order code JUN10 8172.

True Blood #2 (of 6, 32 pages, full color, $3.99) will be available in stores on August 18th. Diamond order code JUN10 0313.
