Fifteen years ago, a new comic book miniseries from IDW Publishing hit the shelves taking us to Barrow, Alaska, North America’s northernmost community, where the temperatures range from “cold as shit to fucking freezing,” and each year, the Sun does not rise for 30 straight days. The series begins on the last day of sunshine before the month of darkness begins, but this time around, vampires have arrived for unhampered access to sustenance of the human variety.
That 3-issue miniseries was 30 Days of Night and it put horror writer Steve Niles and artist Ben Templesmith on the map.
Now, IDW is releasing the 15th Anniversary Edition trade paperback that collects the original 30 Days of Night #1-3 (2002), along with its follow-ups, 2003’s Dark Days #1-6 and 2004’s 30 Days of Night: Return to Barrow #1-6.
The original miniseries spawned a 2007 film adaptation from director David Slade, who provides the Intro to this anniversary edition. If you’re not already familiar with this property, then definitely pick up this new release.
15th Anniversary Edition – 1st printing. Collects 30 Days of Night (2002) #1-3, Dark Days (2003) #1-6, and 30 Days of Night: Return to Barrow (2004) #1-6. Written by Steve Niles. Art by Ben Templesmith. Fifteen years ago Steve Niles and Ben Templesmith burst onto the comic book scene with their explosively fast and violent take on vampires that kick-started a modern horror comics revival. Going on to become a feature-length film from Sony Pictures in 2007 and spawning a full run of comics and graphic novels, the phenomenon is collected here, with the first three volumes of 30 Days of Night!
