30 Days of Night

Credits: Written by Steve Niles and Illustrated by Ben Templesmith
Publisher: IDW Publishing

Commentary

Good Ideas are good. Comics don't have enough good ideas these days. 30 DAYS OF NIGHT is one of those comics with the Good Ideas you've heard about in other media. Check it: Barrow, Alaska, experiences a full month of complete darkness during the artic winter - which is like a dinner bell for a buncha good-for-nothin' goddamn vampires. Standing in their way? Husband-and-wife sheriffin' team Stella and Eban.

All alone...
For a month...
In the dark...
Of Barrow, Alaska...

See? SEE? Niles and Templesmith know what they're doing, by god.

If 30 DAYS OF NIGHT was a movie - which it now is - you'd be on line, ticket in hand, quicker than Ebert can say 'Tolkien.' This 104-page collection contains extra pages not in the original series, and has an intro from Clive Barker.

The time is right for the Good Ideas again.
