Starting November 9, the team of writer Kent Dalian, artists Joelle Jones and Karl Kerschl and cover artist Jenny Frison will bring all new stories from the world of P.C. Cast and her daughter Kristin Cast's New York Times best selling novel series to life with House of Night #1. The first issue in the ongoing comic book expansion of the House of Night series will introduce new readers to its brand of "vampyre" lore and give current fans another source of fresh, Cast-approved continuity. Check out the first video teaser for the new House of Night comic series, along with several sketches after the jump.
From Dark Horse Comics' official solicitation info for House of Night #1:
Until recently, Zoey Redbird was an average high-school student worrying about grades, boys, and breakouts. But priorities have a way of changing when you are marked as a vampyre, enroll in the vampyre academy House of Night, and have to figure out a whole new social hierarchy, affinities for elemental magic, and physiological changes that make you crave blood.
Rather than working as a straight adaptation of material already covered in the book series, the House of Night comic will expand upon the existing continuity with a main storyline and numerous backups fleshing out the universe's history. The main, present-day portions of this series will star protagonist Zoey Redbird and her friends and take place around the same time as book two, Betrayed. The historical backup stories will flesh out the novel series' companion source book of sorts, The Fledgling Handbook.
