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.
