October is a special month for The Dresden Files. Why you ask? Because Halloween happens to be the birthday of one Harry Blackstone Copperfield Dresden…i.e. everyone’s favorite magic-wielding, hard-boiled detective, and star of the much beloved Dresden Files series of novels by author Jim Butcher.
In celebration of that, and in recognition of the warm reception to the first Dabel Brothers Dresden Files original comic book series written by Butcher, Welcome to the Jungle, we are excited to declare October as Dresden Files month at Dabel Brothers Publishing! We have quite a few Dresden
things happening this month…
First off, The Dresden Files: Storm Front #1 ships last week in October. Storm Front adapts Jim Butcher’s very first Dresden Files novel, and is written by Mark Powers (G.I. Joe, Drafted) with art by Ardian Syaf. Storm Front follows Harry through the investigation of a double murder committed by the use of black magic. Fan anticipation on this series has been high…
Storm Front will be a two-part series, each series containing 4 issues, shipping monthly beginning in October.
Second, The Dresden Files: Welcome to the Jungle hard cover graphic novel ships from Del Rey this month, in stores October 14th. Welcome to the Jungle has been a hit with the critics and fans alike…with the first three issues selling out almost immediately after release. Welcome to the Jungle has also been one of the highest pre-order graphic novels on Amazon.com over the last six months. Reserve your copy today from your local bookseller or comics shop.
Third, Dabel Brothers has a Dresden Files poster shipping in October. The poster art by Ardian Syaf is a scene from Storm Front which depicts Harry dangling from one wrist while trying to fight off giant scorpions, murderous toad demons, and insane ritualists…WHILE the house is burning down around his ears. Measuring 18″ x 24″, it’ll be available from your local comics shop.
