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.
