    30 Days of Night was an awesome vampire story. It seems that many secondary stories have flourished since the original. Case in point this one- number 10? Well, Red Snow isn't bad. But, it seems a derivative story and suffers from the wretched art that seems to be par for the course for this entire series. Seriously? Get a better artist. The gist? During World War II, in Russia, a group of partisans and an SS unit run into some troublesome vampires. That's really it. With what it was, it still ha 30 Days of Night was an awesome vampire story.

During World War II, in Russia, a group of partisans and an SS unit run into some troublesome vampires. That's really it. With what it was, it still had the potential to be a good story. The story, itself, though pedestrian is good enough. But, coupled with the awful artwork it drags this down to a "meh" comic. It is a shame that a better artist couldn't be found. I think with the backing of good art, this comic would have risen to a three star rating. But the rather derivative story and the awful art get this a deserving 2 star.

    Illustrator Templesmith proves to be a competent author as he does this slice of World War 2 porn without the dubious talents of Steve Niles. Like pizza, it's hard to render inedible a story about evil Nazis and pillaging Cossacks being hunted by bloodsuckers doing what they do best. Issues such as the genocide of people by both Nazis and Russians is given a passing mention, but most of the panels are dedicated to Templesmith's hit-or-miss style of crude composition on dimly colored canvases.

    Unconnected to the larger storyline, which isn't a knock - not everything has to be related. Still entertaining all on it's own. Unconnected to the larger storyline, which isn't a knock - not everything has to be related. Still entertaining all on it's own.

    A World War 2 story set in the depths of a Russian winter which pits Nazis and Cossacks against our favourite vampires. Just to add to the mix is a lone English soldier on loan to the Soviets, and a small group of civilians.

Everyone has to work together in order to survive - needless to say trust is in short supply and its hard to say who does more killing - the vampires or the soldiers who constantly betray each other. Needless to say, there are few survivors and the vampires definitely come out on top in this one. It's no great loss to humanity because the Nazi and soviet troops are just as bad as each other, and only the civilians and the Englishman are sympathetic characters. It's a pretty insubstantial tale but it's nicely illustrated, with good use of colour throughout, mostly blues to represent the coldness of the outdoors, the warmth of the inside in orange, and red, lots of red.

    А оце - дуже погана історія. "Червоний сніг" - це експлуатаційний комікс про Другу світову, де Бен Темплсміт відповідав не тільки за малюнок, але й за сценарій. І це гарний приклад що іноді краще малювати, ніж говорити. Стів Найлз, який є головним автором серії, теж не є бездоанним сценарістом, утім, саме його історія дала початок франшизі - і доволі довго тримала її.

Він навіть не робить спроб додати якихось автентичних чи притаманних німцям чи росіянам рис, натомість будує діалогі та характери так, ніби це американські селюки вирішили знічів'я реконструювати ДСВ, придбавши для того форму на муляжі зброї на Алі-Експресі. Сюжет загалом не сяє, ще й окремі його епізоди під час геть позбавлені елементарної логиіки. Навіть стильний малюнок Темплсміта не рятує загалом слабку історію. Утім, вато зазначити, що він тут на висоті, і байдиків художник не бив. Але важко насолоджуватися гарно промальованоою, атмосферною сценою, коли її абсурдність відверто бісить.

    Red Snow is set in Russia as they battle Germany, the Nazi squads are combing the Russian villages cutting down all who aid the war in the snow covered region, the two enemies soon discover they are not the only forces they have to worry about as a vampire horde led by a frightening little girl is infinitely more dangerous. The enemies soon realize they have to work together as the body count rises and the undead ranks swell. Almost a prelude to the events at Barrow, the story and artwork are bot Red Snow is set in Russia as they battle Germany, the Nazi squads are combing the Russian villages cutting down all who aid the war in the snow covered region, the two enemies soon discover they are not the only forces they have to worry about as a vampire horde led by a frightening little girl is infinitely more dangerous. The enemies soon realize they have to work together as the body count rises and the undead ranks swell. Almost a prelude to the events at Barrow, the story and artwork are both by Ben Templesmith, the original artist to the 30 days of night saga and some of the vampire and flame thrower panels are exceptional. The story rapidly and violently changes from underground tunnels to cold, bloody winter night in an intensely action focused story and the artwork is amongst the best of the franchise. The dark haunting atmosphere of terror is recreated once more in this grim macabre setting and you can certainly appreciate Templesmiths vision.

    templesmith shows that he is also a competent writer as well as a brilliant artist, but the writing does not match his brilliance in his visuals. the story was a bit stale, but competent.

    It’s the middle of winter in Russia where the Nazi’s are busy killing every single Russian they can find. Russians are also out and about looking to kill all the Nazi’s and Russian citizens who are not loyal enough. The two groups join together with some citizens to fight Vampires, but the peace between the 3 doesn’t last long. With everyone betraying each other while they are all being picked apart by the Vampires. A last ditch effort to get away, will any survive?

With everyone betraying each other while they are all being picked apart by the Vampires. A last ditch effort to get away, will any survive? I liked this story line, when reading the previous comics I wondered why they didn’t talk about any towns in the Norther reaches of Russia which would also be plagued by the endless night at times. Now that story is told, but during WWII which makes it even better of a tale. The artwork in this one is FAR better than the originals. It was very easy to tell what was going on and that really increased my enjoyment of the comic. The writing was decent but typical. It’s available DRM Free via Comixology.

    Still a great concept, still horrible gutter language [showing a stilted, juvenile, limited vocabulary] and artwork ranging from brilliant to sloppy.

    This 30 Days of Night one-off on the Eastern Front is a Ben Templesmith solo arc, and probably my favorite 30 Days of Night stories so far. Unlike some of the Steven Niles arcs, Templesmith does not try to fit multiple character development and interactions into a fairly short-run story, thus under-developing some of the character development changes. Instead, Templesmith puts into the context of war and let's the history do the backstory for us.

Instead, Templesmith puts into the context of war and let's the history do the backstory for us. We aren't given elaborate insights into any of the characters, only a picture of the situation on the Eastern Front with ultra-violent vampires attacking in the bitter cold. The fight for survival in this one night stands alone, and all the characters are truly at risk given the later of overall plot necessity for anyone to survive. This distills the virtues of of 30 Days of Night without some of the problems I have come to link with the comic.

    Nazis versus Commies versus English versus Vampires. The artwork was beautiful, and the writing was pretty good. It returned to the basics that made 30 Days of Night work quite well. The cold is frightening, the starving is frightening... the entire situation is quite effective. The story is hampered by the lack of character development, but seeing it was a mini-series I can understand the lack of it. All in all, a good sort of statement.

    This is a standalone story set in the 30 Days Of Night universe, and revolves around the vampires taking advantage of the remote Russian front where the soldiers and civilians are subjected to perpetual darkness.

These opposing forces eventually are forced to find a way to fight together against a common threat in the vampires. Overall it's a pretty engaging story. It's tough to compete with the earlier stories by Steve Niles, but Ben Templesmith does a pretty good job taking on the writing in addition to his artistic duties. All in all it's an entertaining one-off.

    I don't hate this, but I don't like it either. The pace is breakneck, which would be cool if Templesmith took the time to let readers get to know the characters. As it is, it's a blur - literally & figuratively - of vamp action and senseless Nazi vs. Commie violence (as it probably really was back in WWII.) I know his artwork is different, cool and new, but here the fuzzy half-sketches take away from the enjoyment of the story. I don't hate this, but I don't like it either.

    This is one of the better stories in the 30DON Universe, and, it actually, makes sense. The story is based in the WW2, in a battle between Nazis, Russians, an Englishman, and a Jew/Russian family. It have a good tempo, plenty of action and the so-much-classic Ben Templesmith art ... He wrote the story too. It can be read even if you are not familiar with the 30DON comics. Fun for all the family !!!

    This story is set in 1941 as the Russians and Germans are trying to weather the snow and perpetual night of the Russian winter. The soldiers from both sides hide out with a peasant family as they try to fend off the vampires. There is lots of blood and gore, but the story line is pretty compelling and I like the bit from the book description: "No matter how hard humanity tries to kill itself, something else does it better."

    Possibly the worst writing in the history of comics, but irresistible and original storyline. The ideas & creativity behind this are exceptional, though severely depreciated and nearly ruined by the onslaught of misspelling, bad grammar and utter lack of notable writing skill. That said- suck it up, drive on, get over it and just read the crap.

    In this stand-alone tale from the 30 Days of Night collection, we travel to the underside of World War II. As a Russian and German faction war it out amidst a massive snowstorm, the vampires slink their way into the fray in search of new prey. A brilliant look at WWII and vimpre mythology.
