Isn't it crazy how popular comic books still are? There's something that the inner geek in all of us just can't shake, and now an unlikely company - HBO - is putting some stock into that.
The popular premium cable series True Blood is getting turned into an extensive comic book, as announced for this week's Comic-Con convention in San Diego.

The HBO series itself actually has roots in the print medium. True Blood's setting was based on a series of mystery novels that came out before getting picked up to the #1 premium cable broadcasting company.

In an interview with CNN, the series' creator Alan Ball said, "There's definitely characters and a story to fill comic books outside of the world of the show. So I said yeah, let's go for it. We got together and we talked about stories, and we came up with a story. Now issue one is ready."

True Blood has had a three-season run so far and it shows no signs of slowing down.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
