True Blood: All Together Now by Alan Ball, Kate Barnow, Elisabeth Finch, Mariah Huehner, and David Tischman
Art: David Messina
I’ve read all the Sookie Stackhouse books and watch True Blood, so buying the comic book was a no-brainer. However, I am often leery of TV-adapted comic books as sometimes they aren’t as well cared for and executed as one would hope. So I was pleasantly surprised when All Together Now turned out to be just as entertaining as the TV show and books.
When I first started reading, I wasn’t a huge fan of Messina’s art. However, as I got further into the book, I began to appreciate it more, especially as Messina varied his style in the flashbacks. And he chose an appropriate penciling technique to really bring out the emotions of each character in their unique flashback.
