Enjoyed everything about this one.The overall story of a serial killer executing vampires in the big easy was certainly interesting.Especially when you find out who the murderer has connections too.The overall banter between Sookie Bill and Eric was sharp as usual.I also found the storyline between Pam and Lafayette to be very good as well.Nothing not to like in this one.

I have only read Volume 1 so far but I didn't really feel like I needed to read Volume 2 before this one, and I was right. However what I wasn't expecting was that this plot line takes place after season four of the show. Luckily I had finished it just before reading this but if you haven't finished it you might not want to read this yet.

The first volume of this series was great! The plot was good, the characters were done well and stayed true to the show and it had a good humor to it. This vol

Compared to the other two True Blood comic story arcs, this one was good and bad. Volume 1 & 2 had great writing--the characters' voices were spot-on and the humor was classic Southern charm. This volume's dialogue felt forced, and the jokes fell short. The sexual subtext was cheesy, and not to TB's standards. There were cliche moments and eye-rolling lines that really depleted the quality of the comic. But--the plot was excellent. The vampire serial killer and Hep-D epidemic was well-develo ...more

A solid installment to the series. Great storyline but my only complaint was the use of way too many description boxes that could have been replaced by dialogue. The description boxes tended to get repetitive and gave too much obvious information that the reader could alresdy get from the art and context clues in the dialogue. Everything else about this volume was great especially because with each volume we get more and more backstory to the characters in this series.

The third volume of True Blood graphic novels loosely follows the first volume while ignoring the second one.
The story is good enough, it focuses mostly on the love triangle between Sookie, Bill and Eric, and overall it is a bit less fun than the previous volume.
The art in this one is a bit better in comparison to the previous volumes, even though characters do not resemble their Tv show versions that much.
All in all, again a good read for most of the fans of the Tv show.

I don't understand why they feel the need to change so much about true blood to make these "books". True blood itself is a good story and they could of used the stories themselves to make these "books" instead of adding stuff they thought would make it better. Any fan of true blood would hate these "books". Which is why I do. I've read the real books and watched the show more then I can count but I will NEVER read these again.

At first glance "The French Quarter" is clearly the best of the "True Blood" graphic novels to date. But a closer examination reveals some fatal failings. As a whole the plot is quite good, the setting fascinating and the premise fascinating. But on a scene-by-scene level the volume is quite clumsy, the dialog truly awkward and the storytelling contrived and overstating. The book is entertaining as are all of the comics based on the sneakily intelligent vampire show, but just as its predecessors ...more

My first attempt at a graphic novel, and I'm pretty sure I don't like them... Maybe I am just too close to the True Blood series. I will try one more, but I don't think this is for me.

Eric convinces Sookie to help find a murderous Vampire from his past in New Orleans but is he really after Eric?
Jan 06, 2013 Melissa rated it really liked it
It seemed every page turn lead to a plot twist I did not see coming! The main story was well done, but the secondary plot left a lot to be desired (and, I just didn't see what the point of it was). So it lost a star for that. And while I haven't read the other two recently enough to truly compare, I do think I liked Volume 2 the best so far. Excited to see what comes next in this series!

eComic (Comixology) The thread for this story is picked up from the ending of Volume 1. A serial killer has targeted vampires who are sick with Hepatitis-D. Bill, Eric, and Sookie head to New Orleans to try and find the killer. The layers are a bit mysterious and complicated, but the conclusion was simple.

This I found better than the first two because it felt a lot more like a story rather than looking for a reason to tie some additional memories together. The story itself is okay, although the characters got to interact a lot more (which improved the overall plot).

I'm a big fan of the true blood graphic novels. They really capture the characters well both physically and in prose. I loved the vampire serial killer story who transcends eras targeting infected vampires. Can't wait for the next instalment

3.5 Stars

Good story that branched off into two stories actually.
Good mystery and dialog that kept to the characters' unique personalities from the book series and TV show.

Nice graphics again.

These graphic novels are great. Didn't care for the first one, but really liked the 2nd one and now this one. The art is fantastic. Since the show completely blows now, try these instead.

The most exciting Trueblood graphic novel so far. I loved the mystery element and the focus on Eric was also refreshing. Fun, Fast read if you love the show.

This was probably my least favorite of these books so far. The story was really similar to one that already happened on the show.
