Late last year we debuted the cover art for Issue #3 of The Strain comic book series, and now Dark Horse Comics has sent over an early look at the artwork for Issue #8, which goes on sale September 12th, for us to share.
The Strain (click here to order/pre-order Issues #1-#7) is a 24-issue series told over two years as 8 issues each of The Strain, The Fall, and The Eternal, based on the novels from Guillermo del Toro and Chuck Hogan. The comics are adapted by David Lapham (Stray Bullets) and artist Mike Huddleston (Butcher Baker the Righteous Maker).
The Strain Series Synopsis:
When a Boeing 777 lands at JFK International Airport and goes dark on the runway, the Center for Disease Control, fearing a terrorist attack, calls in Dr. Ephraim Goodweather and his team of expert biological-threat first responders. Only an elderly pawnbroker from Spanish Harlem suspects a darker purpose behind the event – an ancient threat intent on covering mankind in darkness.
Issue #8 Synopsis:
As an epidemic of vampirism engulfs Manhattan, Dr. Ephraim Goodweather tries to uncover the conspiracy aiding these monsters’ ascent to dominance. Meanwhile an attack in a police transport will force one man to become a vampire killer instead of a meal! Credits: David Lapham (W), Mike Huddleston (A), Dan Jackson (C), and E. M. Gist (Cover)
