After finishing Mercy Thompson Homecoming I decided to go on amazon and see what kind of reviews the book had gotten.  When I saw that 21 people had given it a single star I thought: WHAT?! and read the reviews.  I am a huge fan of Patty's werewolf world.  As I read the reviews I became infuriated, they were based upon the reviewers failure to read the product description before impulse buying rather than the content of the book.  I absolutely enjoyed seeing people state that no where did it say Graphic Novel on the page.  Meanwhile, for any of you have read it, you probably noticed right on the very cover it says: "An original graphic novel..."

Anyway, I noticed that Alpha and Omega is being released in a graphic novel hardcover collection as well, which I'm looking forward to. =D  And I just wanted to to suggest that somewhere on the amazon page Graphic Novel should be added in big letters, so reviewers won't drag down the rating due to their mistake and not the content.  Homecoming really does deserve higher.

And this is a link to to news about Cry Wolf in graphic Novel form:

Can anyone give me some help....I just finished Cry Wolf and am a little confused about Anna's life before she met Charles.  Also, the whole story of Charles rescuing Anna.  Is there a chronological ordre to all of Patty's books?

Thanks so much!  I LOVED "Cry Wolf"!!!

Title: Re: Alpha and Omega: Cry Wolf, Volume 1
Post by: Patti L. on September 12, 2009, 09:04:54 pm
The chronology in Mercy's world is (as of today):
Homecoming Graphic Novel
Moon Called
Alpha & Omega
Cry Wolf
Blood Bound
Hunting Ground
Iron Kissed
Bone Crossed.
Title: Re: Alpha and Omega: Cry Wolf, Volume 1
Post by: judidiane on September 12, 2009, 10:33:03 pm
Thanks but I haven't even read anything about Mercy yet.  Do these books come before the A&O book?  Should I read the Mercy books in order before reading the 2nd A&O book?

sorry, just a little confused.

Judidiane   :(
Title: Re: Alpha and Omega: Cry Wolf, Volume 1
Post by: Patti L. on September 12, 2009, 10:45:07 pm
Okay, it works like this.
The first things written were Moon Called & Blood Bound.  Then, in the same "ficton", she wrote "Alpha & Omega" about peripheral characters from MC & BB.
These were so well received that she was asked to write more novels based around those characters.
Moon Called, Blood Bound, Iron Kissed, and Bone Crossed take place over the course of about a year, following Mercy Thompson & the Columbia Basin Werewolf Pack.
Alpha & Omega, Cry Wolf, and Hunting Ground take place in about 6 weeks during the same time frame as Moon Called, approximately.

You do not by any means have to read the Mercy based books before you can enjoy what comes next with the A&O series.  You might consider, as a purist for time issues, in fact, that reading all the listed A&O stuff, and then moving to the Mercy stuff is more correct.
Or you might pause where you are, read Moon Called, & then go back to the A&O.  Then immerse yourself in Mercy.
Title: Re: Alpha and Omega: Cry Wolf, Volume 1
Post by: Ellyll on September 13, 2009, 07:31:41 am
In the A&O series, there was a novella called "Alpha and Omega" about how Charles and Anna met.  It was in an anthology called On the Prowl.  It gives some background about Anna's situation with her pack, and it shows how it gets resolved. 

Then there were the books: Cry Wolf, then Hunting Ground

There is some overlap with the Mercy books.  Bran and Samuel appear in both series.  Charles has a few appearances, although not Anna.  You don't need to have read one to read the other, though. 
Title: Re: Alpha and Omega: Cry Wolf, Volume 1
Post by: judidiane on September 13, 2009, 07:47:40 am
My sincere thanks for all your info!!  I think I will read the anthology which has the short story about Anna & Charles in it, then go to the 2nd A & O book, THEN read the Mercy series.....whew, I've got some reading to do....can't wait!!!

Again, I appreciate both of you clearing up my confusion.

Have a great week!

I was not exactly sure where to post this, so my apologies in advance if this is incorrectly attached to this thread.

I just received a cancelation notice from TFAW, the company I order the Dabel comics from stating that the publisher has cancelled them. Now they only cancelled my orders for the first three comics in the series not the fourth.

So... basically I have no idea what is going on; even with all the delay for the Mercy and Dresden comics they never have cancelled an order for these comics before, and most of those took nearly four months (or more) past the release date to be available. Just curious but has this happened to anyone else too? Is Dabel having problems? Or have the comics for Alpha and Omega been truly cancelled (which would also mean no hardcover book from Amazon)? :(

BlackCat13- You're not the only one having problems ordering the Cry Wolf series. I've been going through HeavyInk.com to order my Patricia Briggs comics. The release date for Cry Wolf #1 (according to their site) is 8/19/09. I'm also wondering what's going on. When I e-mailed the guys at heavy ink they told me that the hold-up was at Dabel comic's end. So I guess we just wait indefinitely?
Title: Re: Alpha and Omega: Cry Wolf, Volume 1
Post by: Elle on October 27, 2009, 08:41:02 pm
To my knowledge the first issue of Cry Wolf is still being worked on. I'll send an email to Dabel and see if I can get a tentative release date and get back to you guys with what I find out.

I bought/ read my first Patricia Briggs book in September '09, "On The Prowl", and I Loved It- I am instantly became a HUGE Fan! Just as soon as I finished it I ran out & bought "Cry Wolf" and it was fantastic! The characters and their back stories are so cool- Charles & Anna are definitely my favorites, but Bran is awesome and Asil is so very interesting. Not to mention, Patricia Briggs is so good a painting a picture by description, I practically could feel the cold & the landscape.

I am going out to get "Hunting Ground" today- so that's exciting. However, waiting for Aug/2010 for book 3 to be released is going to be a little bit excrutiating- it's a good thing that I haven't read the Mercy Thompson series yet  ;)

Post by: Salarika on November 01, 2009, 04:01:04 pm
I had pre-ordered it through Amazon, and just got notified that my order had been cancelled :(  ! I'm assuming the problem is on the publishers' end (I used to work at a Major Chain Bookstore), and I've noticed that other publishers are doing the same thing. Major bummer.

Okay, I heard back from Ernst Dabel regarding the CW graphic novel.

They have cancelled this release date because it's being pushed back. The first issue is still being worked on so a November release date this time is unrealistic. I know it's frustrating but I don't think we'll be seeing it until the first part of 2010. I hope that helps everyone!
Title: Re: Alpha and Omega: Cry Wolf, Volume 1
Post by: Dante on November 05, 2009, 04:38:04 pm
Why is it getting pushed back? That really sucks....i've been looking forward to it for months.

I went looking on Amazon and Borders and they've taken it off their sites...really not cool  :-'
Title: Re: Alpha and Omega: Cry Wolf, Volume 1
Post by: Elle on November 05, 2009, 04:42:06 pm
It's getting pushed back because the first issue isn't finished yet, Dante. Ernst took time off for his honeymoon and I think that, we can, despite our disappointment appreciate that sometimes deadlines don't get met and release dates must be re-evaluated.
Title: Re: Alpha and Omega: Cry Wolf, Volume 1

Post by: Elle on November 05, 2009, 04:48:33 pm
Dante, it's a couple of posts upthread. I e-mailed Dabel Brothers for the information. If there's further development regarding the release dates I'll keep the board updated with the information as soon as I receive it.

New here and this is my first post so forgive me if I'm breaking any rules.

We may never see any "Cry Wolf" comics from the Dabel Brothers.

http://www.bleedingcool.com/2009/09/25/dabel-brothers-productions-%E2%80%93-over-11000-in-debt-to-another-studio/

http://www.bleedingcool.com/2009/08/16/dabel-brothers-productions-over-27000-in-debt-to-just-one-studio/

Sorry not real up on forum tech so if those links don't work just do a search fror dabel brothers and look for the in dept links.

Anyway the reason I'm here is to ask if anyone knows someone else may pick up the comics and produce them. Marvel took over the Anita Blake stuff maybe they or someone else could do the same. Anyone know what's going on I'd love to see them come out.

Thanks,
Christopher
P.S. please for give the miss spelled words if any.

You're certainly not breaking any rules Christopher.   I'm in a very awkward position, much of the information I'm privy to is confidential.  However,  I don't want our readers to be left in the dark.   Here's what I can say:

1) I can't discuss the Dabels financial status.  There's a lot of balls in the air right now which will determine the future direction of the company and those who have contracts with them.
2) Our status, with the Dabels  is also currently uncertain, but we're hopeful.  Patty's agent is working very hard to iron out a deal.

Given the success of homecoming (9 weeks on the NYT bestsellers list), it is probable that there will be more comics coming eventually.  Besides, it was fun!
Title: Re: Alpha and Omega: Cry Wolf, Volume 1
Post by: christophermicheal on November 13, 2009, 03:05:55 pm
I'm really glad things are hopeful. The only reason I started the Mercy series was the homecoming comics. Same thing with Anita Blake. I saw the comics read them and wanted more so now I have all the Anita, Mercy, and Alpha Omega novels. I also plan to start the other series Patricia has written, can’t wait to see what they are about.
If things don't work out with Dable please , please go to another comic publisher. I absolutely loved homecoming and that panel with Mercy tearing up the shirt had me on the floor. Maybe if this current cycle of comic adaptations of books continues to do well other authors will join in.
Thanks,
Christopher
P.S. Are there any plans for some more Mercy adaptations, not that I won't be satisfied with alpha and omega but I want MORE , MORE , MORE. lol

Hey everyone. :) I noticed that Dynamite Comics had a release date for Cry Wolf in May, 2010. It could have always been there and I never noticed it before and/or the date has since been changed. Can it be getting closer to when it will come out? I read Patty's comment on her home page where she said she will let us know as soon as she knows, so maybe I am being pushy and impatient. My apology if this is so.

Also, how many issues do they think it will be? I noticed a "1 in 10" but don't know if that has anything to do with the number of issues. I had assumed 4 issues but you know what they say about assuming. Thanks... :)
Title: Re: Alpha and Omega: Cry Wolf, Volume 1
Post by: Elle on March 10, 2010, 07:00:28 am
Hi ladyj,

May 2010 is the date that Dynamite has for the release of the first issue. It hasn't always been there but is a new release date they have posted.

Cry Wolf will be 8 issues total, split into 2 volumes each.  Thus, Cry Wolf #5, for example, will officially be Cry Wolf Vol. 2, #1.

Watch the main site for updates, though, as the release date may change. I hope that helps. :)
Title: Re: Alpha and Omega: Cry Wolf, Volume 1

I was very happy to see that Dynamite already has the June issues of Cry Wolf, the Dresden Files, and Robert Jordans WOT issues posted for preordering. So maybe May is a definite release date for all of them... bOuNcY

Ummm.   I'm not sure how much I can say. Although we've worked out the contractual issues we were having, we haven't seen any new artwork for Cry Wolf in quite some time.  Given that we'll be traveling though much of April, I'm a little dubious that they can draw the art, get it approved, make any tweaks or changes, and get the comic produced.  It might happen, but I wouldn't bet the farm on it.   :-\

Thank you Mike. Maybe if they will just get the first issues in May like they showed, and once they see the demand, maybe they'll get things out on a more regular schedule. The eternal optomist here!  :)  Many of us have been waiting for all three of these titles for awhile now.

BTW, the girl in the comic store, who took the subscription for me, is a big fan of Patty's writings, and we talked quite some time about her series. She too, is looking forward to the comic and the next Mercy book, at the end of March. All hail Patty!! *salutes*  :D

Depends on the popularity of the series, I'd imagine. Goodness knows, there are enough compilation volumes of Usagi Yojimbo to fill a shelf in my library. Plus The Sandman, plus a couple of other series and some stand-alones. I adore graphic novels, myself; my brother got me hooked on Usagi, and then I turned around and did it to the hubby. Now if CJ Cherryh and Jane Fancher had just managed to finish the Morgaine series, my cup would be full. *Sigh*

I just ordered mine of ebay today, so I'm hoping that it comes soon. So excited bOuNcY!

I have a question though, how does it begin? Because technically Charles and Anna's story begins with the "Alpha and Omega" novella and not with Cry Wolf.

I read Cry Wolf first. I could feel that something was missing and I had a very difficult time reading the rest of the book because I didn't really understand Charles and Anna's connection.  ??? When I read "Alpha and Omega" I immediatly re-read Cry Wolf because I knew I could then experience it the way I should have initially.

I'm worried that the volume is going to be incomplete if it's purely based on Cry Wolf. I rejoice in the process of reading comics and I want for me and those who haven't even read the books to see the story for all that it is.

Some of you have read the first issue, I presume. Without giving me a play by play, can you tell me where it starts in their story? :-[
Title: Re: Alpha and Omega: Cry Wolf, Volume 1

Hi there :) I'd like to ask you for A&O comics - in this lost end of the world is impossible to get some infos about it so I have to search on the internet but I'm confused - did they published the comics or not? And if yes - how many issues? I found at least four covers but some of the issues are not available for order, some of them are available... and every website says something different  :-\  It seems some of you have the comics, but... I'd like to ask you for better informations :)  Thank you for any tips ;)

Post by: andracowolf on September 18, 2010, 03:19:12 pm
Hello all.

I wanted to just give my opinion on issue 1 of cry wolf. and it is not that good.

Story.

For a comic series that would focus on Anna and charles, meaning that they might do more than simply cry wolf, they focused too much on the Walter Character, 5 or so pages, in 25 or so pages of story that covered about the first 25-50% of the book.

They skipped over the broad points of what had happened to Anna. the only thing you read is charles telling Anna that Leo and Justin would never hurt her again, then strangely the artist shows Anna sleeping with her arm over Charles' chest, from reading the first bed room scene she was never like that, she was afraid of Charles.

Art
Looking at the art there were only 3 major snafus that I saw, one was that Charles seemed too white, they had Asil too brown/black and finally I know that this artist is different than whom drew homecoming but that guy had Bran drawn well this guy just did not get bran right.

I am still intrested in the series, The story could be fixed in flash backs, especially when Asil sends flower to Anna and she then hides from Charles in the bathroom. and the art is simple as using diffrent colors in the next issue

I am glad to see patty's work branch into other media.

I can't wait for the next ones!

Does anyone know what is happening with the next volume? When it will be out?

There's been an artist change so the release of Issue #2 has been delayed. When I get the new release date for it I'll post it here.

I don't even know how to articulate how happy that makes me feel...

Not that it will take longer to come out, that there was an artist change.

I see where you're coming from and I agree with you. But this is an average problem with comics. Artists not understanding the characters fully and drawing them inaccurately.

I, as a comic book reader, have dealt with tons of problems. One of the most common is having a writer or artist that clearly hasn't done all their homework and if the character isn't totally wrong, then they are at least off.

One problem that you didn't  mention was the lack of a narrator or interior monologue. The issue would have benefited greatly by someone  explaining the more intricate details, like at the funeral. Perhaps it should even alternate perspective like it does in the book. It's details like that can elevate a good comic to a truly, great and satisfying comic book.

Very often you're also dealing with their limitations as artists, so as far as Asil is concerned, I believe you are right. His character design was definitely off.

However, all these problems make me even more excited for future issues. Apparently there's been an artist change and a series can benefit greatly by something like that. :D

So, be encouraged!

Not only have they changed artists,  but they're having the new artist re-draw the whole first issue. :o   Apparently, they won't re-lease the comic, but when they print the hardback graphic novel they want it all to match :D

GRRRREAT!!! Okay, please don't hate me, but I now have to admit that I wasn't crazy about the art for A&O 1. I thought the Mercy series was drawn so much better. Who is the new artist?

Post by: Mike Briggs on October 07, 2010, 06:58:37 pm
Actually, I misspoke.  I couldn't remember if I'd heard who the new artist is, so I called Patty (currently out in her office working on River Marked).  It turns out they're still searching for the right artist, so while there WILL be a new artist, it's still up in the air.

  I hate to complain about Jordan -- he tried hard and is very talented, but the wolves and ethnic characters just weren't his forte.  Also, there were some issues with the script and production of Cry Wolf #1 . . . suffice it to say that we're aware that it wasn't the best piece of comic art ever produced, and we're darn well going to do better.

You know, it's a little like baseball.  Nobody ever steps up to bat thinking, "I'm feeling lazy, I think I'll hit a gentle grounder to the shortstop."  But despite the best of intentions, you don't always get a home run.  However, as long as they keep publishing we get another chance!

In other news, Amelia is doing some amazing stuff.  There's a little interview with her on the comics page, and check out this cover she did for an upcoming Mercy:

So did they switch artists after all?  Im looking into getting the comics and I just can't deicde if I will like them.  Is it just the same story or do you get some other little details you don't in the books?  Not just for A&O but Mercy too?  Would you guys buy them?  Love to hear everyones opinions! bOuNcY
Title: Re: Alpha and Omega: Cry Wolf
Post by: little gray wolf on November 14, 2010, 03:38:32 pm
I'd buy them, definitly.  You do get some new info, but they mainly add on to what we already know

For Alpha and Omega, parts of the story have been altered a bit for the graphic novel format. Nothing that changes the core of the story though. No new details have been added.

There is a new artist so don't look for the revamped A&O until well into the new year.

I buy them all. ;)

So it's getting redone? That would be sweet; I wasn't too thrilled with the first issue. It was so rushed, especially when compared to the new Moon Called comic series.

But it's still going to be Cry Wolf, not the short story that first introduces Anna? Why is that? When I first heard there was a comic of Alpha and Omega coming, I got all excited because I thought it would start with the story from On The Prowl. I thought it would have been a great prologue for the novels, like Homecoming was for the Mercy series.
Title: Re: Alpha and Omega: Cry Wolf
Post by: Elle on January 13, 2011, 02:13:57 pm
It is being redone, consider your first issue a collector's item! :D

It is still going to be just Cry Wolf. There are references to the short story within the run of it though.

If any of you get the Moon Called omnibuses the Mac short story within that is done by Todd, the new CW artist, so you can all get a taste of his style.

I got the moon called comic and must say... after reading the whole comic the bonus comic looked a little bit strange

but I get that right? the comic will be redone so there is no use buying the older ones? how many were there 3? these will be really rare  LOL

So, I'm a bit confuzzled.  I thought I understood it as, the first graphic novel will be re-done, so we should have 2 #1's in the end; but now #1 is no longer available and a #2 is to be published this fall.  Is this #2 actually the re-done #1?  or are they not re-doing #1? 

I guess I don't buy the individual volumes, so I'll assume that they'll start from the beginning in the anthology version...

There's a new artist, Todd Herman. We get his #1 released. Consider the previous #1 as a collectors item.

anything new about cry wolf? my local comic store keeps telling me that there is no new comic
and ebay still want to give me that slasher movie cry wolf  9)
Title: Re: Alpha and Omega: Cry Wolf
Post by: Elle on September 27, 2011, 08:19:24 am
It should start coming out soon. Issue #2 is being colored and lettered right now.

There is a question of Todd's #1 coming out. The run may start with the release of #2 because of the original start with Jordan's art.

The #1 of the new artwork is colored and lettered but it may only be seen in the omnibus which will come out later. I'll make sure to update when I know more.

#1 isn't coming out as a single issue.

The run starts with #2 and if you get the omnibus #1 is only included in that release.

and #1 is from the other artist?
Title: Re: Alpha and Omega: Cry Wolf
Post by: Patti L. on November 05, 2011, 10:36:37 am
#1 from the first artist came out.  They stopped production.  #2 by the new artist is out now, individually.  #1 from the second artist is not being released individually, only in the compilation when it comes out. 
The original #1 is probably sold out and not being reprinted.

Post by: Victorymon on November 05, 2011, 11:09:44 am

Wasn't Charles's third gunshot wound on his leg?  (also I'm pretty sure when you wrap wounds it takes more than just one strip of vet wrap...)
Title: Re: Alpha and Omega: Cry Wolf
Post by: CarolKat on November 05, 2011, 04:24:49 pm
Charles' wounds, Scratch across shoulder - at restaurant
Chest - During fight with Leo
Calve - During fight with Leo ( this one caused the most problems)
All with silver bullets

Yeah.  It's better to use too much wrap than too little.  Especially if the wounded individual is going to go out and do battle with... anything.
Title: Re: Alpha and Omega: Cry Wolf
Post by: Elle on November 05, 2011, 07:03:43 pm
It's not meant to be accurate it's more a representation of events like the other covers. You'll see that in the upcoming covers as well. More about visual impact, which is why we see the wolfman images over the werewolf ones.
