Official Announcement for Joe Abercrombie's Comic Adaptation to come Tomorrow

Teases trickle out for a possible Joe Abercrombie comic, with the official announcement coming soon.




   We posted a sketch of one of Abercrombie's characters, Logen Ninefingers, and a page of pencils the other day.  This morning he released the colored and completed page with the comment 'official announcement to come tomorrow'.  This announcement we believe will be a comic adaptation of his debut book, The Blade Itself.

 

 

Here is the official synopsis of the book for those that haven't read it:

Logen Ninefingers, infamous barbarian, has finally run out of luck. Caught in one feud too many, he’s on the verge of becoming a dead barbarian – leaving nothing behind him but bad songs, dead friends, and a lot of happy enemies.

Nobleman, dashing officer, and paragon of selfishness, Captain Jezal dan Luthar has nothing more dangerous in mind than fleecing his friends at cards and dreaming of glory in the fencing circle. But war is brewing, and on the battlefields of the frozen North they fight by altogether bloodier rules.

Inquisitor Glokta, cripple turned torturer, would like nothing better than to see Jezal come home in a box. But then Glokta hates everyone: cutting treason out of the Union one confession at a time leaves little room for friendship. His latest trail of corpses may lead him right to the rotten heart of government, if he can stay alive long enough to follow it.

Enter the wizard, Bayaz. A bald old man with a terrible temper and a pathetic assistant, he could be the First of the Magi, he could be a spectacular fraud, but whatever he is, he's about to make the lives of Logen, Jezal, and Glotka a whole lot more difficult.

Murderous conspiracies rise to the surface, old scores are ready to be settled, and the line between hero and villain is sharp enough to draw blood. Unpredictable, compelling, wickedly funny, and packed with unforgettable characters, The Blade Itself is noir fantasy with a real cutting edge.

 

Check back with us tomorrow for more information!

So it's gonna be serialised as a webcomic for free and available for sale through Comixology monthly in advance. Chuck Dixon has adapted it and some random guys I never heard of are drawing it. I'll probably have an opinion on it later after I read it.
