'True Blood' Exclusive: Here's your First Look at the graphic novel cover!

true-blood-comic-bookHere it is, True Blood fans! EW is proud to exclusively reveal the cover to the new graphic novel True Blood, Vol. 1: All Together Now, which is the hardcover compilation of all six issues from the first comic book series set around HBO’s buzzy hit. It seems to be about what you’d expect from such a thing, right? You can’t really go wrong with Sookie, Bill, and Eric—even if they are in graphic form.

In terms of All Together Now, beside the new cover, bonus content in the compilation is set to include sketches and a cover gallery of all the issues’ separate covers. The book hits stands Feb. 8, 2011. It’s a ways off, of course, because there are still two issues of the comic book series to be released between now and then.

But, readers, what do you think of this cover? Does Sookie look like the Sookie we know? What of Bill? And Eric? Lemme know in the comments below.

    Why does her hair look leopard print?

    • wino

      and why does she look like Kelly Clarkson?

  • JP

    For starters, that’s not a graphic novel.

    Those pictures don’t look like someone drew them… it looks like a photo has just been altered on photoshop.

  • marciayeomans

    Her knees are ugly.

  • Jennie

    LOL! Couldn’t they have tried to pretty her up a little bit? Her face isn’t anything special period, but it looks like they’re trying to emphasize all of her worst features (small close-set eyes, bulky facial structure, that unfortunate nose). Yikes!

    • Jennie

      That being said, Bill and Eric look sublime, of course.

    • Malla

      Zeitlos, yes, they’re cute. But then they get bigger, and need shots, and more food, and they prucdoe more, um, waste. If I could figure out how to get them across the Atlantic, I would be more than happy to trade kittens for German books!

    Not a fan. Eric looks like a prime candidate for forehead botox. Bill looks way too feminine, and seriously, did the artist really need to draw in those man-bangs? Eww. Lastly, it seems as though
    Sookie forgot to put on her pants…easy access!

      I’m a big Eric/Alex fan, but he’s always had a bit of a wrinkly face.

      Matt I’m so disappointed I miessd this live podcast with you and Steve. What a great podcast on How do you know when you’re winning with money? As you stated in your podcast with Steve I think when you accomplish Dave Ramsey’s Baby Step 1 you are on your way to winning with money. It is about ACE Attitude , Choices and Effort .Thanks Jackie

    Well, it looks like nothing can save Anna Paquin’s unfortunate genetics.

  • vhendley

    Kudos to the artists! Eric and Bill were drawn “spot on”…they look amazing!

  • Charles

    The individual issues have had far better covers so far. Why not simply reuse one of those instead of this poor design?

  • apoehler

    Wow, that’s some awful art. Nearly on the level on something you’d expect to see on the cover of a Bluewater book.

  • zee

    OMG my comment disappeared!!! c c c “shaking head”
    was saying true blood is darker than this crap they put on here. it’s blood on black canvas and a insecure Sookie and where are the fangs? come on!
