PRESS RELEASE: Dabel Brothers Publishing is excited to premiere the first eleven pages (DOWNLOAD HERE) of the much-anticipated Dabel Brothers project, “Mercy Thompson: Homecoming”. Artist Francis Tsai beautifully illustrates all the covers and interior pages to this series, with author Patricia Briggs herself penning the original story. Place your orders today before the first issue ships this November.
Francis Tsai (Marvel Adventures, Impaler) is one of the few artists who can fully paint his interior pages and his style is a perfect fit for the project. As these first eleven pages show, he’s done an amazing job and will continue to impress as the series goes on. Author and Mercy Thompson creator Patricia Briggs has been absolutely thrilled with the results so far.
“The artwork is impressive and beautiful,” says Patricia Briggs. “I think we’ve captured exactly what the world of Mercy Thompson is all about—real world troubles like getting a job and paying the bills—broken up by moments of terror and humor. Fun stuff. I’m so excited about this project!”
For those unfamiliar with the work, Mercedes “Mercy” Thompson is a Volkswagen mechanic—she’s also a coyote shapeshifter and an observer of the supernatural community, though not part of it: she’s the perfect intermediary between the things that go bump in the night . . . and the things that bump back. This prequel to the best-selling Mercy Thompson novels finds Mercy smack in the middle of warring packs of werewolves and face to face with angry vampires. Worse still, she faces the dreaded job interview!
