IDW Publishing today announced an all-new, ongoing 30 Days of Night comic book series, beginning in October. Series co-creator Steve Niles returns to his first original series with this latest chapter in the 30 Days of Night saga, joined by 30 Days of Night: Night, Again artist and The Maxx creator Sam Kieth. Niles and Kieth depict an epic story that shifts from Barrow, Alaska, to the city of angels, Los Angeles.
“I’ve been wanting to get back into the 30 Days of Night universe and shake things up for awhile now” said creator Niles. “I’ve just been waiting for the right moment, and the right artist. I have the right artist in Sam Kieth and the time is now.”
This new tale starts when a letter from Barrow, Alaska, carries a cryptic warning to a young, curious woman, leading her down a rabbit hole and face-to-face with her desires… and likely her demise. Elsewhere in Los Angeles, a vampire resurrection ignites, which could threaten the very way of life of all mankind.
This new, ongoing series features a fresh cast of characters being introduced to the 30 Days of Night lexicon for the first time. Fans are encouraged to ask their retailers about the rare “Fiona Staples” cover and vampire plush dolls.
The 32-page 30 Days of Night #1 will be available in stores October 2011.
