The Dabel Brothers are on the verge of releasing one of their biggest books of the year as they prepare for the launch of the comic book adaptation of Laurell K. Hamilton’s ANITA BLAKE: VAMPIRE HUNTER in GUILTY PLEASURES. Pre-orders have been strong, and excitement from fans and retailers has been overwhelming. People simply cannot wait to get their hands on this book when it ships in mid-August.

But those who make it to WizardWorld Chicago ‘06 on August 4th-6th will be glad they attended – after all, they’ll have the chance to be among the readers who were able to pick up a special edition of the first issue, which will feature the entire story done entirely in pencil, celebrating the fantastic art of fan-favorite illustrator Brett Booth.

“We really wanted to offer something unique to our fans who have waited so long and so patiently for this title,” explained Ernst Dabel, President of DB Pro. “And this book is absolutely gorgeous. We often forget when we publish our comics that while we have had the opportunity to see the artwork at every stage – pencils, inks, colors, and letters – our readers only get to see the completed product. But there’s something to be said for seeing the original pencils, especially when they’re drawn by someone as talented and as much eye for detail as Brett Booth.”

Brett Booth fans and Anita fans alike can enjoy this special pencils-only edition simply by stopping by the Dabel Brothers booth (#645, towards the back corner of the publishers section) at WizardWorld Chicago and purchasing a copy. The Dabel Brothers will also be selling their official limited edition Anita Blake T-shirts. But since both items are limited in quantity, the Brothers anticipate that they may sell out before the convention is over!

The Dabel Brothers will also be holding a costume contest on Saturday, August 5th, open to anyone who attends the convention. All participants need to do is arrive at the convention dressed up as any character from a Dabel Brothers book – from an old favorite like THE HEDGE KNIGHT, LEGACY or XIII, or one of DB Pro’s latest books, like MAGICIAN, MARSHAL, RED PROPHET, or ANITA BLAKE. Contestants should register at the Dabel Brothers booth sometime between 10:00 p.m. and 2:00 p.m.. The winners will receive a full year’s subscription to all of DB Pro’s comic books and graphic novels!

“We’re very excited about WizardWorld Chicago, and we think this is going to be a year many of our fans will remember,” said Les Dabel, Vice President of DB Pro. “We love meeting people and getting feedback on what we’re doing, so please feel free to stop by our booth – I’d love to shake your hand and show you what we’ve been doing!”
