Description

In a sleepy, secluded Alaska town called Barrow, the sun sets and doesn't rise for over thirty consecutive days and nights. From the darkness, across the frozen wasteland, an evil will come that will bring the residents of Barrow to their knees. The only hope for the town is the Sheriff and Deputy, husband and wife who are torn between their own survival and saving the town they love.


Praise For 30 Days Of Night

“…a short, sharp shocker of a horror tale with an original premise and a Matterhorn-sized mountain of tension.” –Maxim

"The comic in your hands has much of the raw, even brutal energy of a horror movie from the good old days. Short, sharp and unforgiving. It's got a catchy title, a wonderfully clever, but simple idea at its chilly heart, and a narrative that starts at a run and never slows down." — Clive Barker

"Writer Steve Niles plays on common fears of isolation, darkness, and monsters in a story that's more chilling than its locale. A good writer could extrapolate any one of these fears into a thrilling story, but
Niles succeeds in pushing all of these buttons with the right frequency to produce a story that's not just chilling, but downright scary." —Jim Johnson, Comics Buyer's Guide

"Above all else, 30 Days of Night reads like a horror movie—a great horror movie. If you thirst for something that's guaranteed to scare the pants off you, you've gotta pick this up. But take my advic —read it with the lights on." —Casey Seijas, Wizard Magazine
