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.

Baker & Taylor
As a band of hungry vampires descends on the town of Barrow, Alaska, during a period of winter darkness, the townspeople's only hope lies with the husband-and-wife sheriff team of Stella and Eben Olemaun.

Mindblowing and utterly terrifying artwork from Ben Templesmith highly complements this absolutely perfect, high concept script & realistic dialogue from writer Steve Niles.

A great complimentary tale to accompany the duos seriously underappreciated Criminal Macabre work together.

A must read for any comic book fan, or any horror fan.

So... this is it? This is the infamous 30 Days of Night Horror-comic that shook the comic industry?

The plot is simplistic. There's no build up. There's no tension no character development... Steve NIles is a fan of horror movies but even some of the worst horror flicks to a better job of build up and story telling.

I give this comic a rating of M: for Meh...

It's not an entirely original take on vampires, but it is a great read.

It's so nice to see an author who's willing to represent vampires as monsters and not melancholic, brooding, complainers.

Awesome, just re-read it. Really shouldn't have even been a movie.

The original (and best) of the 30 Days of Night series. Despite the gore and horror, it is a touching love story.
