Official PRess Release
Dabel Brothers Publishing is thrilled to show the five page-lettered preview for the first issue of Jim Butcher’s The Dresden Files: Storm Front. The comic is written by Mark Powers and drawn by Dresden veteran, Ardian Syaf.
Storm Front is Butcher’s very first Dresden Files novel, and follows Harry through the investigation of a double murder committed by the use of black magic. The Dabels promise a non-stop, and action packed story in typical Dresden fashion leaving the readers on the edge of their seats.
“As excited as we were with the art on Welcome to the Jungle, we feel like Ardian has stepped it up even more for Storm Front,” says Dabel Brothers’ Business Manager Rich Young. “He has really hit his stride drawing Harry and all the characters and environments from the Dresden universe with this book. We think fans will be very pleased with the translation from novel to comics here.”
Be sure to get your copy at your local comic book store on November 12th before they disappear!
And while we have your attention, it would be a shame not to share some of the milestones that the Dresden Files: Welcome to the Jungle hard cover graphic novel (published by Del Rey and produced by Dabel Brothers) has passed. The gn cracked the USA TODAY Best Seller list at number 80. The book was also listed as Number 4 for Amazon’s “Customer’s Choice” Top 10 of 2008 graphic novels. And it hit #3 on Book Scan for top-selling graphic novels in October. Thanks again to our fans for their support of this project…we appreciate it greatly!
