30 Days of Night came around in 2002 and has been a strong fixture on the comics scene ever since, however the only recent stuff I’m familiar with was the X-Files crossover which was great. I was really excited to pick up the all new, ongoing title 30 Days of Night on Wednesday of last week and am thrilled to report that it is a super enjoyable book with seriously scary potential. This is the kind of title that gets you excited for Wednesdays.
Its a fresh updating of the franchise which takes us out of the gloom of Barrow, Alaska and down to Los Angeles. The characters are all new and come across and really quite genuine and interesting, especially the interactions between Alice and the dude from Barrow..
The art could be described as simple and childlike. If it was coloured with pastels and crayons it would fit a childrens book really well. But it isn’t. The book is washed with gritty grey’s and greens and of course, BLOOD RED BLOOD. Templesmith isn’t here but to be honest, I don’t miss him. Kieth is a 30 days veteran and these guys must have horror comix in their blood….
This book is going to get better as it goes on, of this I am pretty sure
