Promo: Dark Swan Graphic Novel (Richelle Mead)

I love Richelle Mead's Vampire Academy and Succubus series. I haven't read her Dark Swan series yet but I bought the first book and am planning to read it soon. I've also found that I'm gaining an appreciation for graphic novels - I bought The Exile: An Outlander Graphic Novel and Black Wade in the last few months and loved them both. So I'm super excited about this:

Sea Lion Books has released the first five pages of the Dark Swan graphic novel, and it looks good:

According to the publicist, there will be four comic book issues, the first issue releases May 18 and the other comics will come out every month thereafter. The graphic novel, which is the hardcover will be out in September. Richelle Mead posts about it here.

Product description from Amazon:
Eugenie Markham never asked for any of this. Until now, she''s been content with her job as a freelance shaman, battling and banishing Otherworldly creatures. When a prophecy suddenly makes her the Otherworld''s most popular bachelorette, Eugenie finds herself fighting off unwanted supernatural suitors, as well as the evils that begin emerging from her past...

I think I'm going to need a separate shelf for my growing Graphic Novel collection!!


  1. I love such visual treats but the pricing of such books prevent me from indulging :( I really like the vibe of the pages included in your blogpost!

    Btw, did the graphic novel of the outlander live up to the hype?

  2. I with you on that one! I like to see the interpretations into graphic novels of books I have already enjoyed. Thanks for sharing!

  3. I am so ridiculously excited for this! Richelle Mead is really going nuts with the graphic novels - between this adaptation and 'Vampire Academy'. I can't wait!
