30 Days of Night: Red SnowFrom IDW Publishing’s press release:
In August, IDW Publishing will release “30 Days of Night: Red Snow,” a comic book prequel to “30 Days of Night,” now a much-anticipated motion picture from Sony Pictures being released this October. Directed by David Slade, best known for directing “Hard Candy,” “30 Days of Night” stars leading Hollywood actor Josh Hartnett.
The prequel, “30 Days of Night: Red Snow,” is set half a century before “30 Days of Night,” which made its debut in 2002. Created by writer Steve Niles and artist Ben Templesmith, “30 Days of Night” is the terrifying story of a small Alaskan town overrun by vampires during thirty sunless days of the harsh northern winter. When released, the horrifying vampire tale from IDW Publishing shocked the comic book world and quickly became a bona-fide smash hit, becoming one of the undisputed success stories of modern comics—spawning a bestselling trade paperback, a major motion picture deal, and the attention of thousands of fans longing for an innovative tale of terror.
In “30 Days of Night: Red Snow,” Eisner Award-nominated artist Templesmith, one of comics’ fastest-rising stars who has previously served as writer/artist on two projects of his own creation, “Singularity 7,” and “Wormwood: Gentleman Corpse,” makes his debut as writer/artist on the nightmarish world of vampires he co-created. This gritty, three-part tale is set during World War II and follows a British military attaché who is assigned to getting aid through Stalin’s frontline troops, all while the Russian winter grows more threatening. However, he finds survival even more difficult than anticipated when an unexpected element—which is much more adept at killing humans than humans are—adds itself to the mix.
“30 Days of Night: Red Snow #1,” the first full-color, 32-page issue of a three-issue miniseries, debuts in August 2007.
Currently, if you're so inclined there's already a couple of 30 Days of Night TPB's on the shelf signed.

Either way, foreign lang editions are wonderful. There should be a full French one out soon or already, since I remember signing my soul away on that one.

One of the largest collections I've come across in awhile. Some really fantastic visual ideas in some. Definitely worth checking out. If only I spoke Russian.
( And Latvian, Czech, German, French, etc etc )

Tis written by Mike Carey and apparently originally created by Nick Cage, which I only just realized, heh ( I live in a dark corner of the internet you know )...with art from the amazing Dean Hyrapiet whom I need to remember to beg for a Wormwood pinup.
Don't normally even show my thumbs, but here is is from layout/idea gen through to final. ( well, they asked to change the hand slightly for the printed version )

Unfortuntely just recently some sensitive people decided these types of dolls were too threatening for their poor little souls, so photobucket decided to censor her account and severely limit the exposure Tricia can get for her work. She even made a vid of it you should check out here.
Thankfully you can still check out her stuff on deviantart if you want to see more.
