IDW, the publisher for the True Blood comic book has released the cover art, so Stephen portrayal of Bill Compton is now immortalized in comic art. We are glad that he seems to have the more rugged season 1 hair in the image, and is wearing what appears to be Bill’s classic look, a Henley.
The cover art work highlights Sookie and Bill with smaller drawings of Eric, Sam, Jason, Jessica, and Tara.
The story is written by True Blood creator Alan Ball and is said to be scripted by David Tischman famous for Bite Club. It takes place in Merlotte’s bar where Sookie, Bill, Eric, Tara, Jason, Sam, and Lafayette are trapped by a ghost. It’s a dark and stormy night and the ghost forces the group to retell their deepest darkest secrets so that it may feed off their shame.
