War Cry, the Newest Graphic Novel Chapter of the Dresden Files!
Dynamite Entertainment has announced Jim Butcher’s The Dresden Files: War Cry #1 which launches in June.
In War Cry, four months have passed since the events depicted in Dead Beat, the 7th novel in the Dresden Files series. A war is raging between the vampire forces of the Red Court and the White Council-a war the wizards are losing. So desperate are the Council that they’ve dragooned the experienced and the outcast to reinforce their thinning ranks of Wardens. One of these draftees is one Harry Dresden, Chicago’s only wizard for hire and a guy who’s long been looked upon with suspicion by the supernatural authorities. Now, he’s one of them, and his first big mission as a Warden is a doozy: take a small team of greenhorns to a frigid town in the middle of nowhere to rescue a handful of mortals who’ve been targeted by the Red Court. The question is, why exactly are these particular mortals so crucial to the outcome of the war? The answer will come only if Harry can keep them, and his team, alive for one very long night.
War Cry is co-written by Jim Butcher and Mark Powers. Fans are in for a visual treat with this newest series, as the amazing Stjepan Sejic has signed on to do covers. Carlos Gomez is handling the interior art on the series, and has been delivering stunning pages from day one.
War Cry #1 ships in June, shortly after the much-anticipated new novel in the Dresden Files series, Skin Game, published by Roc Books and releasing in stores everywhere May 27th. The graphic novel collection of War Cry will be shipping later this year from Dynamite.
Jim Butcher’s The Dresden Files: War Cry #1 is slated for release on June 4th, 2014.
