You’ve probably seen the previews and specials rolling on HBO promoting the new series True Blood.  Spacedog Entertainment (partners with Top Cow Entertainment) have a prequel comic book being released this week at the San Diego Comic Con called True Blood: The Great Revelation.

Top Cow has sent Major Spoilers a sneak peek of the issue that is free for those stopping by the Top Cow booth (#2329).  For the rest of us, the first 16 pages will be available on July 24, 2008 at HBO.com/TrueBlood.

About True Blood:

True Blood: The Great Revelation tells of a world where vampires emerge from the shadows to join everyday society. After centuries of living in darkness, they are able to make their presence known with the advent of a synthetic blood – Tru Blood – created by a Japanese company, which allows them to co-exist peacefully with humans without murderous feedings.  But for many humans this revelation is greeted with the fear of the unknown. In the midst of a new community of people struggling for acceptance in society, the ancient and wise “Vampire King” of California, Lamar, is summoned to Tokyo for a meeting with the executives of the company that produces Tru Blood, where he’ll learn of their broader aspirations and the role they’ve devised for him.

    This series is based on Charlaine Harris’ Southern Vampire books, right? Why then do they never mention that in promotional material? They’re ignoring a good base to start building from.
