Steve Niles & Ben Templesmith
30 Days of Night: Dark Days (IDW)
After reading 30 Days of Night it’s hard to think where Niles could take the characters he’d created next. Here he moves the action from Alaska to LA, where one of the survivors of the initial assault continues her war on the vampires and her campaign to make the world believe in the very real threat of the undead.
And while it’s interesting to see the action move from the confines of Barrow to a larger metropolis, the story suffers from not having as tight a concept. It’s still packed with action, Templesmith’s bleak art still shines and the end is nicely handled, if a tad predictable.
