The NZA Posted February 17, 2003 Share Posted February 17, 2003 The trade of last year's biggest min-series finally came out - for those that didnt hear me rave about it before... 30 Days of Night is a horror graphic novel about a small Alaskan town that, between november and december, the sun does not rise for an entire month. A clan of vampires decides to jump in on this, cut of the town's limited communication and have a frenzy, and its up to one small-town sheriff to protect what's left of his town. But can he keep his town - much less himself - alive until the sun rises again? Written by Steve Niles (Hellspawn) and illustrated with chilling detail by Ben Templesmith, this one's so hot its alredy opted for a movie deal with Sam Rami at the helm, which earned Niles a cool million in the process - an amount unheard of amongst indie writers/artisits. It gained a lot of attention very quickly, Cliver Barker even jumped at the chance to do the intro. Its a short, 3-issue trade that comes in around $18 but its really worth checking out if you wanna see cinematic influence on comics and vise versa; as Barker claims in the intro, this one contains some of the scary elements of classic horror films not seen in many movies these days, its really good shit. Also, the next series, entitled "Dark Days", is said to be underway someitme in the near future. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
