Patricia Brigg’s Alpha & Omega as a Comic Book Series

Posted on June 11, 2009 by Flames

Briggs’s popular Alpha and Omega series to debut as Dabel Brothers comic books in August 2009 followed by the graphic novel from Ace in November 2009

Ace Books, an imprint of Penguin Group (USA), announced today the publication of #1 New York Times bestselling author Patricia Briggs’ Alpha and Omega: Cry Wolf, Volume 1 in graphic novel form. The Dabel Brothers, who previously partnered with Briggs to create comic adaptations of her bestselling Mercy Thompson series, will now adapt her first Alpha and Omega novel, Cry Wolf, into a comic series starting this summer. Ace Books will then publish a graphic novel edition of the first four installments of the Dabel Brothers comic series this fall. The publication of Alpha and Omega: Cry Wolf, Volume 1 marks Ace’s first foray into the graphic novel market.

The Alpha and Omega series grew from a novella of the same title, originally published in the anthology On the Prowl. This story, featuring two popular secondary characters from Briggs’s bestselling Mercy Thompson series, was well received and Briggs decided to spin them off into a new series. The Alpha and Omega
series began last year when Ace published the full-length novel Cry Wolf and will continue this August when a follow-up novel Hunting Ground hits bookstores.

“We already have a great relationship established with Patricia and are excited to be working with Penguin on this project,” said Rich Young, Business Director of Dabel Brothers Publishing. “We think that this will be the start of another great relationship.”

The Dabel Brothers will release the first issue of Alpha and Omega: Cry Wolf in August followed by three more issues to complete the first volume.

Then in November 2009, Ace will release Alpha and Omega: Cry Wolf, Volume 1, a graphic novel composed of issues 1 through 4 of the Cry Wolf comics.

“I’m so excited to work with the Dabel Brothers on the graphic novel adaptation of Patricia Briggs’s novel Cry Wolf. Their work is stunning and I know they’ll do her story justice. I can’t wait to bring the werewolves Charles Cornick and Anna Latham to life through comics as well as in novels,” said Executive Editor Anne Sowards.

Patricia Briggs is the author of 14 novels as well as several short stories, all in the fantasy genre. She is best known for her New York Times bestselling Mercy Thompson series. Bone Crossed, the fourth installment in this series-and the first to be published in hardcover-hit bookstores in February 2009 to rave reviews and spent several weeks on national bestseller lists.
