I’ve been a fan of Ron Lim for something in the neighborhood of 20 years, so I think it is cool Marvel has hired Lim to do the art for Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter.
“We’re excited for fans to see the nuances of Laurell’s exciting world brought to life by Ron Lim,” said Marvel President & Publisher Dan Buckley. “We’ve enjoyed working with Brett Booth and wish him the best in his future endeavors. Just as Brett brought his own unique energy to this series, Ron will leave his own indelible mark on the series that continues to bring lots of new fans into comic stores. We’re just as excited as all the readers to experience more exciting stories of everyone’s favorite Vampire Hunter!”
Ron joins the series with issue #8 that arrives in 2008. Take the jump for some sketches of the main characters as envisioned by Lim.
