Comic Con 2013 is in full swing! I am here covering the event and was able to chat and grab some photos with True Blood’s very own Vampire Steve Newlin- MIchael McMillian. He was at the IDW booth signing True Blood comic for fans. Michael took a photo of fans where were on line and tweeted them.
Michael was awesome! I asked him why did he snitch on Eric Northman at Vamp Camp Truman. Well he replied Eric did kill his boyfriend Russell Edginton. As much as I don’t like anyone snitching on Eric he did have a good point. Steve Newlin is still reeling from the loss of his love Russell. The new season has been great so far. Can’t wait to see Michael and the rest of the True Blood cast at the panel being held at Comic Con on Saturday. Here are some photos from the signing. (the comics he signed will be auctioned for charity later this season). A huge thank you to my friends who bought comics and had them signed by MIchael they turned right around and gave them to me for the auction!
Another installment to the True Blood Comics series is available for pre-order. This issue will focus on the character of “Alcide”. The cover for the issue is shown in the image above.

IDW included True Blood’s very own Michael McMillian as a featured guest at their booth on day 2 of WonderCon 2012. He was so nice to us when we stopped by for him to autograph our True Blood comics. Fans also brought along copies of “Lucid”. Michael is the author for the comic series.
Warner Bros. picked up the rights to Archaia Entertainment’s comic book mini-series “Lucid”. for writer-producer Akiva Goldsman to develop and produce as a potential new film franchise. Zachary Quinto’s production banner Before the Door, which created the book, also is on board to adapt the property for the bigscreen. SOURCE:
The images in the gallery below show him signing away! Huge thanks again to IDW for having him at WonderCon. (fun to see Michael without his “Newlin” flip hair!)
