Steve Niles & Various
30 Days of Night: Bloodsucker Tales (IDW)
Here Niles extends his own mythology with more tales of vampires, this time with the loosest connections to the original trilogy. Kody Chamberlain handles the art for ‘Dead Billy Dead’, while in the second story, ‘Juarez’, Templesmith returns on art duty while Niles steps back with Matt Fraction as writer. Both are strong stories that carry themselves well and prove there’s plenty of life (or should that be death) in the 30 Days of Night franchise.
