NYCC 2010: 'True Blood' Comic Kicks Off New York Comic Con!

Has your thirst for "True Blood" been quenched yet? Well, I sure hope not — because HBO and IDW Publishing hosted a little New York Comic Con "True Blood" party last night in honor of the release of the fourth issue in their comic book series, complete with "Fangbanger" drinks, blood-red cupcakes, and yes, a plentiful supply of bottle "True Blood" beverages. (Not an actual blood substitute, by the way.)
Costumes from the television series were also on display, still sporting bloodstains from the show.
After checking out all the "True Blood" goodies, I spoke with the writers from the comic book series, David Tischman and Mariah Huehner.
