Like Laurell K. Hamilton (and others) before here, Patricia Briggs has made the jump to comics with “Alpha and Omega — Cry Wolf: Volume One,” an adaptation of the first half of her book “Cry Wolf.”
Briggs has made quite a name for herself in the urban fantasy genre, with several bestsellers in her “Alpha and Omega” and “Mercy Thompson” series. This hardcover collects four Dynamite comics. Volume 2 is due next year.
The graphic novel was adapted by David Lawrence and drawn by Todd Herman and Jenny Frison. Here’s the official description:
Anna never knew werewolves existed, until the night she survived a violent attack … and became one herself. After three years at the bottom of the pack, she’s learned to keep her head down and never, ever trust dominant males. Then Charles Cornick, the enforcer — and son — of the leader of the North American werewolves, came into her life.
Charles insists that not only is Anna his mate, but she is also a rare and valued Omega wolf. And it is Anna’s inner strength and calming presence that will prove invaluable as she and Charles go on the hunt in search of a rogue werewolf — a creature bound in magic so dark that it could threaten all the pack.
I’ve got a copy of the book, the first published by Penguin’s new InkLit graphic novel imprint, to give away. (Future books from InkLit include two from “Sookie Stackhouse” author Charlaine Harris, one an adaptation of “Grave Sight” and the second an original story called “Cemetery Girl,” plus an “Anita Blake” adaptation and original from Hamilton about “Anita Blake” character Edward.)
