Guilty Pleasures by LK Hamilton

I’m a huge fan of Laurell K. Hamilton and when her first Anita Blake novel was picked up by Marvel to be a new graphic novel (aka comic), I was excited. Guilty Pleasures is going to have 12 graphic novels come out with the last one to be published in June. After reading the first 10 issues, I have to say that I am deeply impressed with the artwork and the storyline. Obviously, they weren’t able to translate the entire book into art, but they managed to get all of the important elements without losing any of the story. There was a bit in issue #8 (or #9) that seemed a bit broken, but it was still excellent. I can’t wait to see the conclusion to Guilty Pleasures and the beginning of The Laughing Corpse.

I am a 30-something SAHM with two adorable boys and a supportive husband who is very tolerant of my reading addiction. I love to read and easily go through about a dozen books a month – well I did before I had kids. Now, not so much. After my first son was born, I began to take my hobby of reviewing a little more serious and started Literary Escapism to help with my sanity. I love to discuss the fabulous novels I’ve read and meeting all the wonderful people in the book blogging community has been amazing.


  1. Cool I will look out for these. I will probably wait until they release all the comics in one collected graphic novel if there isn’t one already. I have read the first 6 Anita Blake books and hope to catch up with the series next year when the new one comes out.

  2. I am with you all the way regarding the comics! I have all the issues that are out as well. They hold one for me at my comic book store when it comes in. :)
