30 Days of Night returns in May

Kevin noted last September that IDW is launching a new 30 Days of Night series, and here it is: The first issue of 30 Days of Night: Night Again is listed in the March Previews for a May release.

Horror writer Joe Lansdale and artist Sam Kieth (The Maxx) are taking over the series, which was created by Steve Niles and Ben Templesmith and was the bases for two feature films and countless spinoffs. In the original, published in 2002, vampires came to Alaska to take advantage of the 30-day-long night of the Arctic winter, using it for a prolonged feeding frenzy. In 30 Days of Night: Night Again, a group of survivors comes to an Alaskan research facility, where scientists are puzzling over a strange object found in the ice. It’s probably safe to say that bloody carnage results.

The press release is deliberately vague, but IDW editor-in-chief Chris Ryall shows off some of Davide Furno’s variant covers at his blog that hint at the nature of the story.



Joe Lansdale = Too many dick n’ fart jokes.
He is sooooooooo the wrong writer to do 30 Days of Night.

It’s gonna be 30 Days of Night & Dick Jokes, mark my words!

I have read dribs and drabs of 30 Days of Night in the past and it wasn’t my cup of tea. Lansdale alone would be enough for me to read this. Add Kieth and that makes it even better. Really looking forward to this one.
