Dynamite Entertainment is pleased to announce the upcoming September 2015 release of Jim Butcher's The Dresden Files: Down Town hardcover graphic novel, collecting the all-original Dresden Files storyline only ever previously released in a six-issue comic book format. Conceived of by Jim Butcher, co-written by Butcher and Mark Powers (G.I. Joe, Drafted), and illustrated by Carlos Gomez (Deadpool, Pathfinder), the new volume follows upon the success of New York Times bestselling graphic novels The Dresden Files: Ghoul Goblin and The Dresden Files: War Cry. The upcoming release in the official, in-continuity Dresden Files graphic novel series tells the story of titular wizard Harry Dresden's mystical confrontation with Chicago mobsters.
"This was a fun project, because we got to play with a Dresden that was much closer to the character as he exists in the most recent books," says Jim Butcher, acclaimed creator of the Dresden Files series and plotter for the Down Town storyline. "We got to see both Mouse and Molly in action, to show Marcone demonstrating why he's the Baron of Chicago, and to pit Dresden against an archetypical foe of the Wardens of the White Council, a power-maddened warlock. We get to go on an adventure in Undertown, the Stygian labyrinth beneath Chicago, and in general have all the monsters, adventure, and uneasy alliances that are what the readers of The Dresden Files have come to expect from the stories."
