So They are pretty awesome does anybody have anything to say about them. I know that I really loved reading the first "First Death" comics. If anybody hasn't read them do so now. It's a never before published Anita Blake story in Comic book form um YAY! Also on a personal note. My friend went to ComicCon in San Diego and got me a Signed Poster of Jean Claude That says and I quote "To Stacy, for you, Laurell K Hamilton" and the special ComicCon pencil cover addition of the first "First Death" Signed, "To Stacy, Enjoy, Laurell K Hamilton" Needless to say I peed myself.

Sarah It's not fair for single issue collectors, though, that the hardcover version of Guilty Pleasures has a short story in the back of it that's not in the monthlies. The story and art in these are so good that I can't help but love 'em.

I think they released the short comic story individually it's the first death mini series there are only 2 of them. They take place before guilty pleasures.

Sarah I've got the First Death #1 issue, but that's not the story I read in the back of the Guilty Pleasures HC. The story in the HC involves Anita talking an older cop out of pointing a gun at a vamp suspect in a murder at an apartment building. Art's different, too, although I can't tell you who did either.

Oh I didn't know that. Well that sucks. I think I'll go ahead and get the hardcover though. My collection is definetly turning into a good investment. I have the first comic ever in pencil edition and thats going for $35 on ebay. wootwoot! PLus I have those signed ones and every single issue that is out, all in first edition. They really are pretty fun. I look forward to new ones when they come out.

Sarah Your collection sounds like a good one. I can't decide if I want to get the HC yet because I have the issues. It feels waaay too indulgent to buy both, but the HC has the mini-story AND the great alternate cover art. I'm so torn. Did you hear that the First Death #2 and Guilty Pleasures #7 release date got pushed back to October 3? I can't wait either, but I guess we'll have to!

Yeah I did. Poo That sucks. I think it's because of the management changes going on with the Dabel brothers. You heard Marvel droped them right. I'm not sure all that's happening with that but there was some sort of change that I read about on Laurell's blog.

Sarah Wow. I didn't know that Marvel dropped the Dabel imprint, but that explains a lot. Since you mention Laurell's blog, have you seen the promo illustration of Anita at ComicCon on Laurell's webpage? It's very cute, but I can't figure out who the guy on the right is. Do you know because I'm blank? I can't think of anyone who's supposed to look like that. Anita is in front with Jean-Claude and Edward (both looking yummy) behind her, but who's behind Jean-Claude?

Jess | 4 comments I have the HC of Guilty Pleasures, just got it last week. Very cool, but I thought they made Anita a bit wimpy. I know in the beginning she isn't as seasoned, but I always envisioned something a bit more tough. Like the graphic used for this site, that was an added graphic from the comic, but not what they used. I like that.

Oh well, I love reading them, and I'll keep buying them!

So the first bunch of comics is done. They were pretty awesome I loved the scene between Jean Claude and Anita I really do think they did Jean Claude perfectly in the comics. The best part though is at The end of the comic it said that Anita Blake Vampire Hunter Laughing Corpse #1 is going to be out in october cool huh. I wonder what they are going to do as the series gets umm a bit naughtier heehee that will be interesting.

Amanda Rose (amandarose) | 148 comments ok so everyone agrees it's worth it?? i am debating getting them. it's all the same story right? just pictured added to it?

message 13: by Stacy (new)

Stacy | 191 comments Mod
yeah pretty much the same story except for first death it tells the story of when Jean claude and Anita first meet pretty cool stuff.

message 14: by Amanda (new)

Amanda Rose (amandarose) | 148 comments oh ok then... i will def. have to get my hands on those!!! I still want the guilty pleasure and laughing corpse comics just because i want to see what everyone looks like. thanks Stacy!

message 15: by Anna (new)

Anna (stregamari) I have all of them, including the posters (jean-claude!) and the brett booth sketch books. very good! New artist for the laughing corpse series, more menacing, I think. LKH had a link on her blog to Marvel, where you can sign up for the series at a great price, and they just get mailed to you as they come off the press.

Laura Emmons (lauraemmons) | 22 comments My son showed up with the first one of these and tossed it to me (HB). I read it and fell in love. He told me a week later he'd given it to me, LOL. He's kept me supplied till the engagement now I have to buy my own. :( (DIL's worth it though)
(He's the one that handeded my guilty pleasures years ago and said Mom I read this and thought of you) LOL

Cindyg (brotherlover) | 88 comments I have four of the HC and I love looking at the pictures. Jean Claude is perfect.

message 20: by Anna (new)

Anna (stregamari) I never thought of myself as a geek, but I went and got those plastic covers and boards, and have everything "preserved". My husband has been looking at me funny
