THE HEDGE KNIGHT IN HARDCOVER
October 18, 2006
Dunk and Egg are coming back for a third pass through the lists.
DBPro, the publishers of THE HEDGE KNIGHT graphic novel, have recently announced a new partnership agreement with Marvel Comics. The Dabel brothers will continue to handle all the creative aspects of their line of SF and fantasy adaptations, but Marvel will take over the publishing, solicitation, and distribution of DBPro’s titles, starting this Halloween with the much anticipated first issue of Laurell K. Hamilton’s ANITA BLAKE, VAMPIRE HUNTER.
A wide range of other comics and graphic novels will follow, including adaptations of work by Orson Scott Card, Ray Feist. Roger Zelazny, Jane Lindskold … and a 3rd edition of my THE HEDGE KNIGHT graphic novel, this time in hardcovers. The new hardback will be printed with two variant covers, as shown here, and should be on sale in your favorite bookshop this December.
With the Marvel deal in place, DBPro is also finally in position to move ahead with their adaptaton of the second Dunk and Egg adventure, “The Sworn Sword” from Robert Silverberg’s anthology LEGENDS II. Ben Avery will once again be doing the script and Mike S. Miller the artwork. THE SWORN SWORD will initially be published as a six-issue miniseries, and later collected into a graphic novel. Look for the first issue some time in 2007.
