Storm Front is the first of Jim Butcher's novels about Harry Dresden, Professional Wizard, which has been followed by many more novelizations of Harry's adventures. There was a single season TV series based on the books. Now there's Storm Front, the graphic novel, Volume 1. This volume collects the comic book issues 1-4 of Storm Front. Volume 1 covers the first half of the novel-- brilliantly. From official release/information:
From publicity material: If circumstances surrounding a crime defy the ordinary and evidence points to a suspect who is anything but human, the men and women of the Chicago Police Department call in the one guy who can handle bizarre and often brutal phenomena. Harry Dresden is a wizard who knows firsthand that the everyday world is actually full of strange and magical things--most of which don't play well with humans.
Now the cops have turned to Dresden to investigate a horrifying double murder committed with black magic. Never one to turn down a paycheck, Dresden also takes on another case--to find a missing husband who has quite likely been dabbling in sorcery. As Dresden tries to solve the seemingly unrelated cases, he is confronted with all the Windy City can blow at him, from the mob to mages and all creatures in between.
