Dabel Brothers Brings Bestselling Author Sherrilyn Kenyon’s Dark-Hunter Series to Comics, Manga, and Adult Coloring Books
Fan favorite “Archeron” will be the first in a set of comic books adapted from the bestselling series, which will also find new life in manga and adult coloring book format
Atlanta, GA — Get excited, Menyons! Dabel Brothers Publishing announces an epic partnership with internationally celebrated and #1 New York Times bestselling author Sherrilyn Kenyon. The company will recreate her wildly popular Dark-Hunter novels in three distinct media adaptations featuring premium original artwork: comic books and graphic novels, manga, and adult coloring books.
“It’s an absolute thrill and privilege to be working with the Dabel Brothers again,” said Kenyon. “They are truly masters of their craft and artists of unparalleled talent. There’s no one I trust more to share the graphic depictions of my worlds.”
The comic book adaptation of the Dark-Hunter series is set for release in August 2016, beginning with “Archeron,” Kenyon’s #1 New York Times bestseller with art by Mel Joy San Juan. The Dark-Hunter novels chronicle the evolution of a race of immortal warriors sent to protect mankind from evil, and Archeron is the first Dark-Hunter ever appointed—a legend among his kind who fought the darkness alone for thousands of years. In late 2016 the comics will be re-released as a graphic novel.
Also in August 2016, fans can expect to see the “Deluxe Dark-Hunter Coloring Book” available in all major bookstores and on Amazon. For diehard Dark-Hunter addicts, a separate 24-page limited edition coloring book is available for preorder on the Dabel Brothers website: goo.gl/gF8RS0
featuring an 18x24 poster to color and frame. Finally, a Dark-Hunter manga series will be released in 2017.
“Sherrilyn Kenyon is wildly talented and a Goddess among authors,” said Les Dabel, VP of Dabel Brothers. “Her work spans multiple genres—from young adult to fantasy. She’s had over 75 books on the New York Times bestseller list and is consistently ranked as one of the top-selling writers on Amazon. We are thrilled to be partnering with Kenyon to bring her beloved novels into the graphic medium, and we have no doubt this will appeal to her current fans as well as new readers who may be attracted to the visual format.”

Hamilton as well as Kevin Hearne’s popular “Iron Druid Chronicles” series.
