Comics and Graphic Novels Based on Anne McCaffrey's Fantasy Series
Posted by Betsy Gomez on March 7, 2018 @ 11:02 am CT
McCaffrey launched Dragonriders of Pern with the novella “Weyr Search,” which was published in Analog Science Fiction and Fact in 1967. She subsequently became the first woman to win the Hugo for the story, and went on to become the first woman to win the Nebula for another novella, “Dragonrider.” Both novellas, along with a third story, were published as Dragonflight. McCaffrey authored or co-authored nearly 100 books over the course of her career. She passed away in late 2011 (see “RIP Anne McCaffrey”).
Dragonriders is the latest license announcement from Dabel Brothers. The publisher also recently announced comics based on Kevin Hearne’s popular Iron Druid Chronicles (see "Dabel Brothers to Launch 'Iron Druid Chronicles' Comic") and a tie-in for Jason-Statham-fights-a-giant-shark actioner MEG (see “Dabel Brothers Plans 'Meg'-A Tie-In”).
