Don’t you just love it when something great just comes together? Take Nosferatu Wars, for instance. Originally published in four parts in Dark Horse Presents #26-#29, this comic is a perfect example of a classic vampire story. And what makes it even better is the way the creators twist this tale to bring us something completely out of this world.
Centered around two vampires, Tarquin and Moira, we are given a story of unfettered bloodlust and carnage mingled with a love affair that has stretched for ages. The setting is the old world and the time is that of the Black Death. Using this horrible plague as a cover for their nightly exploits, the two undead lovers travel towards the estate of a nobleman with deadly purpose.
Upon arrival there, they are faced with seemingly overwhelming odds that quickly turn in their favor thanks to their strength and ruthlessness. Slaying much of the household, they present the lord of the manor with a proposition, one he quickly accepts. But as with all things, the devil is in the details as he soon finds out.
Dark Horse Comics announced Monday that Steve Niles and Menton3‘s Nosferatu Wars is coming to the pages of Dark Horse Presents later this year.
A while back, Steve Niles posted some artwork for the upcoming Nosferatu Wars on his twitter account, and while he’s intent on going creator owned, I for one wondered what publisher this comic would be released through. I figured that it was a safe assumption that the book would be coming out through IDW considering his working relationship with the publisher on his new 30 Days of Night ongoing series. But Monday, Dark Horse Comics confirmed that it will indeed be coming out within the pages of Dark Horse Presents. Now, in what issue in the anthology comic is a completely different story. And we still don’t have that information.
