The first HoN comic! Oh boy!



Oooh! So, here's the cover of the first HoN comic! It's the one with the forest cats and Zoey! It'll go on sale November 9th, and Dark Horse (my awesome comic publisher) is selling this first one FOR $1.00! Seriously! It's the first of five comics, which will release one right after another monthly. They're set between the first few books. You get Z and the early nerd herd, and you also get ancient vampyre stories woven within the modern story.

Also, here's a cool close-up of Zoey from the big announcement poster Dark Horse did at ComicCon. I think the artist did an amazing job!

XXXOOO

*Additional note: The comics will be available in all stores that carry comic books in the US, UK, and Canada. In order to be sure they get the very first issue fans need to go to their local store and ask to pre-order (for $1.00!) the HOUSE OF NIGHT issue #1, on sale November 9th. Can't wait to hear what you guys think!

Omg awesome. Will these be available in the UK?

PC Cast said...

Hi Siobhan! Yes, they will be released at the same time in the UK. For the rest of the countries where the HoN is published: sorry, but I don't have a release schedule for anyone else yet. I'll let you know when I do, though!

ShannonBMamaO3 said...

OMG, that is so exciting! It's going to be fun to see all the character's in action. Isn't GODDESS OF THE ROSE coming out in comic form as well or did I miss its debut? Congratulations to you and Kristen!

PC Cast said...

There will be more HoN comics from Dark Horse, but the rest are secrets right now...

Shannon - yes! Good memory! Goddess of the Rose is, indeed, coming out with Dark Horse. I don't know the exact release month, but I think it'll be summer 2012.

Hayden said...

Will there be a compilation in book-form that'll come out after them all?

PC Cast said...

Good question Hayden! Yes, there will be. It'll be awesome.

Melindinda said...

i got a quick question, will the comics be just sold online like on amazon? or in stores as well like walmart, k-mart? because theres no comic stores around here an was trying to figure out the best place to get the comics at lol

Rudi May Hart said...

I'm loving the art and the UK cover :) HON has really good taste.

maca said...

Oh godess! They look awesome!! I have a friend going to the States on november, so I'll make sure to ask her to buy them for me. And, of course, a brand new copy of DESTINED.
Anyway, congratulations PC, I can't wait to see how it turns up, it looks soo beautiful!
Lots of love from Chile

Who is that in the second picture? It can't be Neferet as she has green eyes, but doesnt Zoey have Brown? In the picture they look kind of topaz.. :)

PC Cast said...

They're both Zoey, just two different artist renditions. The one with the cats is by the artist who will do all the covers & modern interiors. The other is part of a huge poster revealed at ComicCon.

drcullenfans said...

ooh ya i agree with Melindinda where will these be available?

PC Cast said...

Guys, check out my additional note on the original post.

XXXOOO

PunkPryncess said...

Can't wait for them as well!! *beams*

I don't know who controls the HON site, but i just want to let you know that the Get Marked section, loading photos, is still not loading any photos at all, even if they are under 1mb. I just want to let you know, since HON is your world. The markings are probably from your design. I've tried many.. many photos to see if it'd upload, but nothing.

jill said...

PC Cast said...

My publisher controls the HoN site. I know they're doing some updates right now, but I'll let them know you're having a problem. I really have nothing to do with fixing it...

Kittie said...

omg these look soooooooooo cool. will the English comics have the same art work? luv HON

PC Cast said...

Yes, Kittie! The UK version will have the same art!

PunkPryncess said...

Thank you so much for passing the word along to your publishers. *nods* Hopefully they can fix the problem.

Vamp Chicka said...

thats awesome pc! Can't wait! looks like im gonna have to get into comics lolz

Thanatos said...

great! But...does this means there will be no movies from the books? :'(

PC Cast said...

The comics have nothing to do with the movies.

Sway Sherman said...

OMG!I am a HUGE HON and Comic fan!This made me extremely happy!Zoey looks amazing,i love the tattoos.I hope it get released in Bulgaria :)

thechatter17 said...

i live in finland and dont know enyone in the uk us or canada so its hard for me to get the comics so i just wanted to ask does anyone know can you get the comics on amazon or something like amazon??

David said...

Loving the artwork, I also did not realise that you wrote for Mills & Boon.

PC Cast said...

Those of you outside the US and UK: you can access the comics through the Dark Horse website - should be able to order from there. Enjoy!

Ang from Oz said...

I am going to ask my bookstore here in OZ if they will be ordering them in. I could then let you know perhaps so you could let other OZ readers know where to get them?

The art work is great. I love the first pic! Although they aren't what I picture Zoey to look like in my head lol!

PC Cast said...

Hi Ang! Yes! If you'd let me know where they're available I'd be happy to post! Thanks (and good to hear from you).

XXXOOO

Géraldine said...

Great pictures indeed, but I need to read more before discovering the comic books! I discover Marked right now, and I "lurve" it (new word I learnt when I saw a very funny interview..). You and your daughter are amazing writers! great narration, great story, and I'm really interested in the background mythology you tap in (as I was when reading the Divine Series).
Your frenchie fan,

Géraldine

meg said...

Is their any new reports on the movie for the house of night?
i can't wait to see it.

Sabrina said...

um, do you know when they will release the book trailer for Destined? I understand if you dont. Just wondering.. also teasers and lines from the book? they did that for awakened, so im assuming they will do that for Destined as well. Thanks!

Ang from Oz said...

PC,
Do you happen to know the ISBN # for the comic's? I have contacted my bookstore here, and she hasn't heard any news on them being available here yet. But she did say if I could get the # it would be easier for her to sort it out.

PC Cast said...

Meg - When I have movie updates I'll post them here.

Sabrina - I think my publisher is doing a trailer for DESTINED, and I'm sure they'll be releasing sneak peek lines, etc., but I don't have the schedule for that yet.

Ang - I'm working on that...

PC Cast said...

Hi Ang - my editor says to try this:

UPC code:
7 61568 19159 2 00111

Here is the # for the comics shop locator service:
(888) 266-4266

Hope that helps!

Melindinda said...

i got a quick question about the comics, i was looking on Dark Horse's website to pre-order House of Night comic but they had 2 types up, one says "House of Night #1 (Steve Morris variant cover)" and then theres the "House of Night #1 (Jenny Frison cover)" my question is whats the difference? besides the price, ones $1.00 an ones $2.99, plus whats a variant covor? (i know im just full of questions LOL)

PC Cast said...

That's a good question Melindinda - the variant cover is from the poster Dark Horse created for the unveiling at ComicCon. The other cover (green one by Jenny) is the "standard" cover - Jenny is the cover artist for these five comics.

There are so many YA books coming out with comics/graphic novels, but I think this one has the best art. I'm excited to read these!
