Out October 29th.

 

It's been a long time coming, but the manga adaptation of Hell & High Water in English is finally here! I'm so excited! For those of you unfamiliar with the format, this is a comic book version of Hell & High Water. The original was released in Korean then translated into English and re-written by me to fit the original story and illustrations. I love the artwork in this, and Dex certainly converts well into a manga format. This book is so much fun!

If you'd like to see or download a preview of the comic, click any of the links above or below. You'll also find the answers to several questions I've been asked about the manga and the available editions. 


 

A GRAPHIC NOVEL ADAPTATION

When homicide detective Dexter J. Daley’s testimony helps send his partner away for murder, the consequences—and the media frenzy—aren’t far behind. He soon finds himself sans boyfriend, sans friends, and, after an unpleasant encounter in a parking garage after the trial, he’s lucky he doesn’t find himself sans teeth. Dex fears he’ll get transferred from the Human Police Force’s Sixth Precinct, or worse, get dismissed. Instead, his adoptive father—a sergeant at the Therian-Human Intelligence Recon Defense Squadron, otherwise known as the THIRDS—pulls a few strings, and Dex gets recruited as a Defense Agent.

Dex is determined to get his life back on track and eager to get started in his new job. But his first meeting with Team Leader Sloane Brodie, who also happens to be his new jaguar Therian partner, turns disastrous. When the team is called to investigate the murders of three Humanitherian activists, it soon becomes clear to Dex that getting his partner and the rest of the tightknit team to accept him will be a lot harder than catching the killer—and every bit as dangerous.

THIRDS Thursday - 2/1/18

Hello, all! For this week's THIRDS Thursday we bring Hell & High Water Manga news, and a wallpaper download! So the Korean Manga of Hell & High Water is complete, which means Dreamspinner has all the files and can begin the translation process. I have seen the full Manga, and OMG! I might not be able to read Korean, but in a lot of the panels, it wasn't necessary. Seeing the guys come to life in this art form is an amazing experience, and I just adore the cover. Since I now have the high resolution image of the cover, I'm permitted to get it printed on swag and goodies. First, I created a desktop wallpaper which is of course now my desktop wallpaper because I can't get over Dex's pretty face and Sloane's broody-bear face. I mean, seriously, look at it. I swear that expression captures every exasperated moment in Hell & High Water. LOL

Once thing I noticed was how certain scenes were a little different or in a different order, but I know it's so it makes sense in the Manga format. The cool thing about it, is both you and I get to experience Hell & High Water in a whole new way, and I can't wait to read the English version. It will be available in paperback with a color cover. I believe the images will be in black and white. I should know more closer to the time.

A few notes about the manga artwork. Ash's expressions are epic, and yet not as epic as Sloane's. The sexy-times? Goodness gracious great... er, never mind. Definitely for adult eyes only. Hudson is one handsome devil. Cael, Calvin, and Ethan are too adorable for words.

Click on the image for full size. Here's a page from the manga. Can Calvin and Ethan be any stinking sweeter? Okay, so I totally need to think of some cool swag I can get that cover artwork on. Suggestions?
