X-Files vs 30 Days of Night in new comic

Posted by LiveFor on April 19, 2010

Written by “30 Days of Night” co-creator Steve Niles and Adam Jones, guitarist for the band Tool, the six-issue series will send FBI Agents Mulder and Scully to Alaska just in time for the long season of darkness to take over the region. While investigating a strange murder, the pair discove that all is not what it seems in the case.

Veteran artist Tom Mandrake (“The Spectre”) will provide interior art for the series, which pairs DC’s Wildstorm imprint with “30 Days” publishers IDW Publishing. Wildstorm has provided Splash Page readers with the first, exclusive look at the standard cover to the series, created by Andrea Sorrentino. Variant covers by Tom Mandrake and Sam Kieth (“The Maxx”) will also be available.

It will be interesting to see how Mulder and Scully take on the Vampires of Barrow. Can’t wait to see Sam Keith’s cover. I love The Maxx.

Has the X-Files had its day though?

Here is Kiele Sanchez as Stella Oleson (Melissa George in the first film) looking bloody and holding a big knife.

AICN had the photo from the sequel. No vampires in sight so far, but at least there is no snow.

30 Days of Night sequel is good to go

Posted by LiveFor on September 4, 2009

dark-days-comic-cover2Good news for Vampire and comic book fans.

Bloody Disgusting has learned that “30 Days of Night: Dark Days” will begin shooting this October in Vancouver, Canada, with director Ben Ketai at the helm. Ketai collaborated on the “Dark Days” script with series creator Niles, and also directed a series of “30 Days of Night” webisodes as well.

“Dark Days” takes place in Los Angeles and focuses on Stella Oleson, the heroine of the first “30 Days of Night.” Alongside a group of vampire hunters, Stella intentionally draws vampires out in the open in order to avenge the death of her husband Eben, played by Josh Hartnett in the 2007 horror flick.

While Stella is the new movie’s central character, the website reports that the role will be recast. Melissa George of “Alias” fame played the part in the original film.

It’s also likely that “Dark Days” will wind up as a direct-to-DVD film, as Niles previously told MTV News. After amassing only $70 million in the box office, Niles said that a sequel’s chances of getting into theaters were lessened.

“We didn’t hit that magic $100 million, but I had a long talk with [producer Sam Raimi],” explained Niles. “He called me and just said, ‘Don’t be too quick to judge this direct-to-DVD market, especially with the sci-fi market.’

“This way we’d be able to do all the comics,” he continued. “We won’t have the massive competition of the box office, and theoretically, we could move on to ‘Return to Barrow’ and to the other series and short stories.”
