Let Me InDark Horse Comics and Exclusive Media Group’s Hammer Films have just announced a partnership in which they will create a series of co-branded original graphic novels and comic books. Their first collaboration is going to be inspired by Hammer Films’ upcoming suspense thriller Let Me In.

Let Me In is a horrid tale about a young boy named Owen (Kodi Smit-McPhee) who is viciously bullied by his classmates and neglected by his divorcing parents. Owen spends most of his days plotting revenge on his middle school tormentors and his evenings spying on the other inhabitants of his apartment complex. When Abby (played by Chloe Moretz aka HIT-GIRL from Kick-Ass), a new neighbor, moves in next to Owen he finds himself with a strange new friend. But the young girl has a terrible secret that will forever change Owen’s life.

The new American remake of the film is based on my favorite vampire film of 2008, the widely acclaimed Tomas Alfredson-directed Swedish film Lat den ratte komma in (Let the Right One In), produced by Hammer Films, and written and directed by Matt Reeves (Cloverfield).

We don’t know anything about the story yet but writer Marc Andreyko (Manhunter, Predators) is working with both Dark Horse and Hammer to create a “chilling and exciting comic that will incorporate some of the film’s characters and mythology with some fresh themes.”

Dark Horse Publisher Mike Richardson had this to say:

“From the beginning, Dark Horse has always eyed the most inventive stories and creators. The existing Hammer Films library represents some of the most exciting horror stories ever told. Let Me In is easily one of the most chilling and exciting horror stories to come along in years. As we have learned time and time again, comics provides the perfect place to expand on the storyline.”

I’m looking forward to both the film and the comic later this year, I just wonder if the comic will be a prequel or a story that takes place during the timeline of the movie.

The Let Me In graphic novel will be in stores along with its theatrical release from Overture Films in October 2010.
