Instead, lets concentrate on Anita Blake - the Comic Book! It's been annotated already, and by god this is hysterical stuff. The character designs alone.... In the words of the annotater : "In a caption explaining how her mystical vampire-sense works, Anita claims that she "knew vampires like some people knew horses." Given what I've heard about her relationships later on in the series, that line is frigg'n hilarious.
The Annotated Anita Blake. Go read.
