April 1, 2011, Runnemede, NJ– Fans of Jim Butcher’s The Dresden Files, rejoice! Fool Moon #1 is headed your way first week in April, adapting to comics the 2nd novel in Jim Butcher’s long running and New York Times bestselling series.
Harry Dresden’s life is a mess. His top client (and close friend), Lt. Karrin Murphy no longer trusts him. Chicago`s underworld and the cops alike think he`s mobster Johnny Marcone`s supernatural enforcer. And the enigmatic White Council continues to view him with suspicion. If all that weren`t enough, a pack of werewolves have unleashed a wave of terror on the Windy City. But as is always the case when it comes to the creatures of the Nevernever, there`s far more going on than meets the eye. Before it`s all over, Harry will find himself caught between friends, enemies, and arcane forces bent on his destruction. Is it any wonder he can`t find a date?
Harry is returning to comics in a major way with a fresh look by new series artist Chase Conley (Wheel of Time: Eye of the World) and fantastic colors by Mohan!
Mark Powers, who is scripting the adaptation of Fool Moon, said of Chase’s work: “To say I’m excited about Chase’s interpretation of Harry and his world is an understatement — and I have no doubt that when readers get a look, they’ll agree. It’s beautiful work, and I can’t wait to have the actual comic in my hands.”
Dresden Files thematic consultants Priscilla Spencer, Fred Hicks, and Michael Finn, who review every production stage of each Dresden comic, added:
“We’re all excited by how well Dynamite understands the source material. They go above and beyond in efforts to be true to the author’s vision.”
Attached is a preview of the first 10 colored, lettered pages, plus cover art by Brett Booth.
Look for Dresden Files: Fool Moon #1 in comic stores everywhere April 6th!
