Acclaimed and NYT Bestselling author Charlaine Harris, the writer of the Sookie Stackhouse series, has joined the Dynamite Entertainment family with the first book of her hit Harper Connelly series, Grave Sight. Charlaine's Sookie Stackhouse novels became the basis for one of today's most successful television shows, the hit HBO series True Blood! Dynamite is extremely proud to present Charlaine Harris' first comic adaptation!
For the past five years, readers have been thrilled by the Harper Connelly series. Featuring Harper Connelly, a woman who has what you might call a strange job: she finds dead people. She can sense the final location of a person who's passed, and share their very last moment. The way Harper sees it, she's providing a service to the dead while bringing some closure to the living-but she's used to most people treating her like a blood-sucking leech. Traveling with her step-brother Tolliver as manager and sometime-bodyguard, she's become an expert at getting in, getting paid, and getting out fast. Because for the living it's always urgent-even if the dead can wait forever.
PART 1 SYNOPSIS
At the age of 15, Harper Connelly was struck by lightning, an event that gave her the ability to find the dead and see how they died. Since then, Harper's scratched out a living selling her services to anyone with a checkbook. It's not the best life, but it beats the alternative, at least until Harper and her brother Tolliver roll into Sarne, Arkansas and find themselves embroiled in a murder mystery!
"The thing that attracted me to this project is that the characters in Grave Sight are normal people," says writer/adapter Bill Harms. "They exist in our world, and it just so happens that one of them -- Harper Connelly -- can hear the dead. That collision of the supernatural with the utterly normal is what makes Grave Sight such a thrill to adapt. Fans of Charlaine's Sookie Stackhouse series (the basis for the smash True Blood HBO series) owe it to themselves to pick up Grave Sight. It's packed with great characters struggling to live their lives, all while staring down the barrel of the supernatural. It's a great story."
