Written by Cullen Bunn (Harrow County, Door to Door Night by Night) with artwork from Colin Johnson. Nightwalkers was brought to life thanks to the collaboration of Hustle & Heart Films and Vertigo Entertainment, this comic book is sure to keep you hooked with its unique take on a timeless horror sub-genre.
Nightwalkers centers around Seren, an addict in recovery who is secluded in a rehabilitation center in the mountains, completely isolated from the outside world. When Seren and the other patients wake up one morning to find themselves locked inside and abandoned by the center’s staff, they are faced with a difficult decision—do they wait it out or attempt to break out? The decision is soon made for them when a bloodthirsty monster enters the center and begins picking off each of the patients one by one. It’s up to Seren and her fellow survivors to use their wits and courage to fight back against this relentless beast before it’s too late.
Johnson’s art within Nightwalkers #1 does an excellent job of bringing Bunn’s thrilling story to life. Through detailed illustrations that capture both characters’ emotions as well as the setting itself, readers will be transported into this world of suspenseful horror with blood and gore. Furthermore, there are plenty of darker colors used throughout that provide an extra element of intensity when needed—perfect for when facing off against a monstrous foe! The whole book is brought together with excellent lettering from Justin Birch.
