The names of two characters from hit summer TV shows are nearly identical. There's Sookie, the telepath from HBO's 'True Blood' and Snooki, the lovelorn imp from MTV's 'Jersey Shore'.
What are the chances?
Flavorwire.com has posted a 'Jersey Shore'/'True Blood' cartoon mash-up by Ryan Casey that riffs on the similarities of the names. They also rightly point out that both shows have lots of "cringe-inducing sexual situations.''
We agree, but we feel there's more to the Sookie-Snooki connection than the similarities of their names. Peruse our Sookie/Snooki mashup list and the next thing you know you'll be seeing vampires at the Bamboo Bar and guidos at Merlotte's.
The latest television series to get its own comic book adaptation is HBO's 'True Blood,' according to IGN. The comic will be published by IDW Publishing and will involve input from show creator Alan Ball. The article does not indicate that Charlaine Harris, the creator of 'The Southern Vampire Mysteries' series from which 'True Blood' was created, would be involved.
'True Blood' is not the first television franchise to get a comic book adaptation. Far from it. The 'Buffy' Season 8 comic written by creator Joss Whedon is still one of the biggest sellers on the shelves.
IDW Publishing practically specializes in adapting television franchises with 'G.I.Joe,' 'Transformers,' 'Star Trek,' 'Doctor Who,' and 'Angel.' Some of those are movie adaptations of television shows that got expanded into comics, but you get the idea.
With its fantasy premise and gothic atmosphere, 'True Blood' should work well as a comic book. It's a good way to tell different and possibly bigger stories without worrying about such things as budget limitations.
