I really thought the adventures of Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter were over, but apparently there are still three issues left in the Guilty Pleasures arc. Marvel has sent Major Spoilers a sneak peek of the latest issue that arrives March 5, 2008.

Pencils & Cover by RON LIM
Variant Cover by BRETT BOOTH
With a mysterious killer on the loose, vampire hunter Anita Blake isn’t about to slow down her investigation—and that may have dire consequences for both her and her friends! Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter: Guilty Pleasures #9 (of 12) continues the best-selling adaptation of the novel by New York Times best-selling author Laurell K Hamilton, as writer Jessica Ruffner and artist Ron Lim bring the worldwide phenomenon to life like you’ve never seen before! As Anita meets with the Church of Eternal Life, a group promising and delivering eternal life for vampires, deadly forces move to end her investigation. And just what does Nikolaos have planned for Phillip? This issue also features a variant cover by fan-favorite artist Brett Booth!


Issue #9 will sell for $2.99.

    I read the first few books this comic is based off of, but then it got really strange and kinky. Haven’t read one in awhile.

    If you think it’s gone strange and kinky so far.. if they continue the series in the rest of the books it really goes over the top at around the third or forth book ;) (they suffer from the typical comic book world problems too.. hero gets more powerful.. enemies get more powerful.. repeat.) Good series it just gets rediculous :)

    Books are good. No way they can be effectly transcribed into comics, movies maybe, but not comics. Especially marvel comics. I love marvel and all but they’re not porno material and around book five, well, the fans know what im talking about and marvel isnt willing to go there im sure.

    the books are good, i’ve only seen a bit of one comic, but i agree with everyone that they will not be continued too far into the series lol..they could do Obsidian Butterfly though , that ones probably my fav :P

    Honestly, if these became movies, I don’t think they could get away from R or NC17
