You know you want to read a horror story from a guy named Wolf Man. Industry legend Marv Wolfman is teaming up with artist Tom Mandrake to bring us Night Force, a reimagining of a dark tale he started telling 30 years ago.
Here's what Woflman has to say about his new seven-issue miniseries:
Night Force #1 brings us into a world of dark horror. One that begins today and yet extends hundreds of years into the past with the appearances of the mysterious Gatherers, Harvesters, Nurses and Shadows. To combat them, Baron Winters must assemble a new Night Force, and yet, even before they begin their hunt, Winters knows one of them will die.
Night Force lets me tell character-driven horror stories set in nearly any time and place, which is the reason I’ve always said it’s my favorite comic creation. Coupled with amazing art by Tom Mandrake, I am thrilled to return to Baron Winters and company and hope the readers care about these characters as much as I do. Honestly, there’s no other book out there quite like Night Force. If you like dark horror, give it a try.
Mandrake had his own two cents to add:
I’m a big fan of the original Night Force series. I think Baron Winters is one of the most unique characters in the DC Universe and working with Night Force co-creator Marv Wolfman has been a real thrill! Night Force #1 starts off fast as Baron Winters rebuilds his team to battle a threat that reaches across time. As an artist, I’ve always enjoyed working on period pieces and I love modern horror as well. Night Force gives me all of that PLUS mystery, bizarre creatures and the Baron’s leopard companion, Merlin! I hope readers catch our enthusiasm for Night Force!
