horror fans should not miss out on 30 DAYS OF NIGHT: NIGHT, AGAIN #1 (IDW
Publishing). Originally created by Steve Niles and Ben Templesmith, this horror
comic takes the 30 DAYS series to an utterly insane and twisted direction. In
the ongoing battle between human and vampires, another infestation has taken
place in the cold and wilds of Alaska. From the creative minds of award-winning
author Joe R. Lansdale (THE DRIVE-IN, BUBBA HO-TEP) and legendary artist Sam
Kieth (THE MAXX), this is the perfect team-up of story and art.
In Barrow, Alaska, a
group of bloodsuckers have left a gory trail of mass destruction. These hungry
parasites have ripped off the limbs and heads of their screaming victims. The
leader of this monstrous pack is patiently waiting for the sun to set down for
the last time and nightfall to begin forever. Even though her belly is full,
she will always wake up hungry.
After luckily escaping,
Trudy wanders with the last remaining survivors across a landscape of white
snow. Not by choice, Trudy is unfortunately named the leader and has to bravely
protect her people from the vampires, who will not stop hunting them. Armed
only with a gun and a few bullets, she has to reach a town 100 miles away from
Barrow. With no cell service and a rough terrain up ahead, her only plan is to
find the single road that leads to town and find shelter.
With no intentions of
slowing down, the vampires are quickly gaining on the escapees. The vicious
vamps are breaking into homes, nailing their victims to the walls and drinking
their blood. Trudy intends to help her group find salvation. When they are
finally rested and safe, she will go back alone and kill every one of the
As the author, Lansdale
knows how to keep the simple plot engaging. As always, Lansdale’s dialogue is
perfectly sharp and snappy. Readers will find it interesting with how the
author compares the two female leaders. Trudy is like the female vampire because
she is coldhearted for revenge. Both leaders will do anything to protect their
clan and will even take the extra step to make their authority feel known.
The artwork by Kieth is
definitely worth the price alone! Kieth’s illustrations add a whole new level
of terror and ambience. These vampires are hyper-fast and happily drown their
mouths in blood. The colors by Jay Fotos enhance the dreariness of the icy
scenery. You will not be able to put this comic book down after taking a look
at these pages!
