Dean Koontz appeared for the first time at the San Diego 2008 Comic Con International Convention to promote his Frankenstein comic book series with Dabel Brothers Publishing and his Odd Thomas manga graphic novel with Del Rey Books. Look for news about the next Odd manga in 2009. Dean announced two new deals with the Dabels to begin in 2009 two original stories Dean is writing first as comic book series: Nevermore and The Ogelton Chronicles. Both stories are action packed adventures.
Dean spoke to a standing-room only crowd of 4,500 fans in the Convention’s ballroom about his long-standing desire to write comics and graphic novels. Gauging by the enthusiasm with which Comic Con fans greeted Dean, he will surely return in future years.
