IMAGE EXPO: New Projects Revealed From Rucka, Simone, Aaron and More
Hammer Films and Dark Horse have partnered for a line of comics and graphic novels based on films from the legendary horror studio.
However, Heat Vision reports that the first title won’t be an adaptation of one of the Hammer classics from the 1950s and ’60s, but rather a tie-in to Let Me In, the company’s remake of the 2008 Swedish vampire movie Let the Right One In (based on the 2004 novel by John Ajvide Lindqvist).
Manhunter writer Marc Andreyko has been hired to pen the comic, described as a “spinoff” that “will incorporate some of the film’s characters and mythology with some fresh themes.”
Set for an October release, Let Me In centers on the relationship between a bullied 12-year-old boy and a centuries-old vampire child. The remake moves the setting from a suburb of Stockholm to a small town in New Mexico.
