Long-time comic book readers know that quality horror comics these days are few and far between. That's why I've been pretty pumped about the recent confirmation that Steve Niles, whose previous 30 Days of Night series was turned into a feature film, will now be producing the next film adaptation of his work, Wake the Dead.
Published by IDW in 2004, Wake the Dead is a modern re-telling of the Frankenstein story, and was a damn fine read in my opinion, nearly as good as the vampire saga for which he's better known. Niles himself talked to Comic Book Resources about the upcoming project today (to be scripted by Bram Stoker's Dracula's James V. Hart), and I urge all those interested to head there.
Now all I can hope for is that Robert Kirkman's mostly excellent The Walking Dead zombie comic gets the HBO series it so richly deserves...
