    My first graphic novel! Probably should have started with Book 1, but a trusted source recommended this as a good intro into what graphics can achieve. Indeed, it is a wonderful blend of written and visual mediums. The attention to atmosphere is stellar. I can't get enough of the gloomy, frost-bitten color scheme. Much of the characters are disfigured by shadows and inconsistent moonlight. This makes it hard to discern who's human and who's vampire. So creepy!

Indeed, it is a wonderful blend of written and visual mediums. The attention to atmosphere is stellar. I can't get enough of the gloomy, frost-bitten color scheme. Much of the characters are disfigured by shadows and inconsistent moonlight. This makes it hard to discern who's human and who's vampire. So creepy! Danger lurks in every frame and when the surprises occur, it's actually jolting. This is only a slice of a much-larger plot, so I don't have much to say about how it moves the story forward or connects to the series at large, but I can say the characters are instantly engaging and the mysterious elements serve well as immersion into this bleak world. Action is non-stop, so there's never a dull moment. I also appreciate that the dialogue is sparse and carefully used. If this is a unique quality of graphic novels, I may be reading a lot more of them. I like a story where there are no slow parts. It all moves fast, and it all moves forward. No time wasted! So thankful to my friend who finally pushed me to try graphics. Anybody else have series they would recommend?

    In brief, a Return to Barrow is a recycling of what made the first volume of this franchise novel without much improving on Niles and Templesmith's weaknesses as a writer and artist (respectively). Undead bloodsuckers continue making pilgrimages to Barrow during its annual month of polar nights, some to pig out on the town's residents who for some reason didn't move after the first few massacres, others with the intention of scouring the earth of these people who could unmask vampires as real th In brief, a Return to Barrow is a recycling of what made the first volume of this franchise novel without much improving on Niles and Templesmith's weaknesses as a writer and artist (respectively). Undead bloodsuckers continue making pilgrimages to Barrow during its annual month of polar nights, some to pig out on the town's residents who for some reason didn't move after the first few massacres, others with the intention of scouring the earth of these people who could unmask vampires as real threats. If you pause to consider the previous sentence, you'll realize none of this makes any sense. But the vampires have assault weapons this time, so the ensuing video game shoot out really only lasts one out of the thirty nights. There is that, I suppose. This installment brings back several of the undead characters from previous volumes, but really doesn't do much more than have them splatter others, or be splattered themselves, across various impressionistic panels. It's probably a saving grace that, though repetitive, this installment is just the first volume redone as one long action sequence. The small scope keeps Niles from doing the howlingly bad plotting that plagued 30 Days of Night, Vol. 2: Dark Days, but he is still wildly inconsistent on what will or won't kill a vampire. And Templesmith keeps on doing his mixture of half-assed Munch and cartoonish characterization. He's consistent at least.

    Who can resist more vampires in the snow? I didn't realize this was volume 4. I read the first volume a few years ago and thought it was pretty good. If you liked the first one, then you'll enjoy this one, too. Who can resist more vampires in the snow? I didn't realize this was volume 4.

    I really like these books! The artwork is just wonky enough to not be terrifying. It looks as if he takes a photo of the very middle of a face (nose,lips,chin) and then animates over that. I love the look of it. I can't wait to get the rest. I really like these books! The artwork is just wonky enough to not be terrifying.

    It's been over a year since I read 30 Days of Night: Dark Days, the second volume in the 30 Days of Night series, so I figured it was about time I hopped back on the bandwagon. After the first two graphic novels impressed me, I had some really high hopes for this third book. Barrow is rebuilding, though it's a shadow of its former self, still heavily scarred from the murderous rampage of a vampire clan that descended on the remote Alaskan town. The new sheriff is the brother of a murdered residen It's been over a year since I read 30 Days of Night: Dark Days, the second volume in the 30 Days of Night series, so I figured it was about time I hopped back on the bandwagon. After the first two graphic novels impressed me, I had some really high hopes for this third book. Barrow is rebuilding, though it's a shadow of its former self, still heavily scarred from the murderous rampage of a vampire clan that descended on the remote Alaskan town. The new sheriff is the brother of a murdered resident who is skeptical about the stories of vampires and wants to find out what really happened to the town and his brother. Well, it takes no time at for him to figure out that vampires are real, because the vampires are back in Barrow. Apparently, vampires hate loose strings. Stands to reason, considering they've been able to exist for centuries without detection. Barrow is as much a symbol of their potential ruin as it is an easy meal. Still, the vampires throw themselves at Barrow haphazardly, without organization or focus, until an FBI agent recently turned arrives with a desire for self-preservation--and revenge against the humans that would see him destroyed. The initial setup for this book was great, and I was really looking forward to how Barrow would be depicted in the aftermath of what it went through, but this was a bit of a disappointment for me. The artwork is, again, top-notch. Templesmith does such a superb job of capturing the ferocity of the vampires and the desolation of an arctic landscape, every page was a treat to pore over. But there really didn't seem to be a lot of meat on the bone when it came to the story and these characters. The plot felt very rushed and often times like an abbreviated version of the first graphic novel. A couple of secondary characters, namely the deputy and the surly hunter, got a bit of the spotlight, but they didn't seem to have a really important place in the story, like they were there more for atmosphere than anything else. And with a lot of the mystique removed from the vampires in the first two volumes, the threat they presented in this book didn't feel nearly as imposing. The book was a fun diversion over a weekend, but I found myself wishing I had the fourth volume to read immediately afterward just to see if the pace and depth of the story might increase. I dunno, but it seems like this third volume is one that readers could afford to skip and not risk missing out on anything hinged too tightly to the main story.

    This is the last of this series I'm going to review because it's the last of the series available in my local public library and I'm not into it enough to purchase and collect (which is not to say that I didn't enjoy it). Horror is very difficult to do well - on film, in comics, in short stories, or book length. There are so many different definitions of what horror really is for one thing, for another there are there are so many tropes out there that it's easy to be lazy about it. I love horror This is the last of this series I'm going to review because it's the last of the series available in my local public library and I'm not into it enough to purchase and collect (which is not to say that I didn't enjoy it). Horror is very difficult to do well - on film, in comics, in short stories, or book length. There are so many different definitions of what horror really is for one thing, for another there are there are so many tropes out there that it's easy to be lazy about it. I love horror done well and am frequently disappointed, perhaps because for me it's very much less about the brutally graphic (you can find plenty of that in your average history book) and very much more interested in the building of suspense and the stuff that flits by the corner of your eye and then reaches out and grabs you when you turn away. This means that Shirley Jackson's The Haunting of Hill House absolutely works for me while Richard Matheson's similar book, Hell House, doesn't work as well. I'm not denying Matheson's place in the pantheon of horror writers, I am Legend is absolutely classic and scary, it's just that in comparison between the two I like Jackson's ghost story better. These days the best horror is few and far between, although there are many good practitioners of the genre. I loved House of Leaves by Mark Z. Danielewski, Joe Hill's Heart-Shaped Box; The Shining and 'Salem's Lot still scare me. The Reapers are the Angels by Alden Bell is horror crossed with the post-apocalypse through way of Truman Capote and Eudora Welty - the writing is beautiful - its zombies more a part of the landscape and less the central fact of the book. [Yes, I know I haven't mentioned H.P. Lovecraft, but I just can't read him. Love the mythos, though.] In comics there's the inimitable Alan Moore (who is one of the only writers who's ever given me real live wake up screaming nightmares), Garth Ennis' run of Hellblazer, and lots of other good series. Some people say Neil Gaiman's Sandman is a horror comic and sometimes it is, but not always as explicitly as some other series. 30 Days of Night is a good horror comic, although less for the story and more for the setting, idea, and Ben Templesmith's art. Return to Barrow is just that - a return to the original scene of the crime - sadly that makes it less interesting. The writing is decent, but because it's back in the same setting it has some limitations both artistically and as a story line. Same location, same atmosphere, hard not to repeat yourself (and hard not to ask why everybody there isn't dead with repeated attacks each winter). Having fallen in love with Templesmith's art, however, I'm probably the last person in the world to know about Welcome to Hoxford and his Wormwood series - both are on my buy list. It's hard to do horror well, but when it's done really well and the noises in the house make you jump it's like nothing else. 30 Days of Night does horror well.

Templesmith's artwork sets the same haunting atmosphere and is as good as ever, however its all starting to feel a little familiar now but we do have new characters and a town preparing for the coming war changes the concept slightly. The return of two of the original characters all be it in a different prose but with the same intent peaks the interest and my overwhelming need to complete a series I've invested in means I'll definitely continue with the 30 days of night franchise. At the end of the day this is vampire horror done extremely well, extreme violence littered with grisly deaths. You never feel any connection with the characters but I guess that's not the intention, the main focus being the fantastic style, the violence and your imagination.

    Returning to environment of Barrow, Steve Niles and Ben Templesmith move back to the where they have the most focus and where they were the most original. The color work here and textures works better than in Dark Days. Although the characters are new to the reader and have less depth by and large than in than Dark Days, the environments and enclosure really aids the story. That said, this story feels too much like a close re-rendering of the first story, hitting most of the same notes.

Dark Days had most of the ground work for it laid in first book, but this does not feel as explicitly thought out and the Deus Ex Machina ending seems like the only real tie-in. It is not that this lacks tension or narrative impetus, and it does tie up the story of the first two, but seems so easily and predictably in the same vein. Furthermore, Niles still feels rushed in his pacing in these stories and maybe that is a perpetual problem when trying to tell the fairly quickly like the medium demands. If you enjoyed the first two 30 Days of Night, you will probably enjoy this one; however, it will feel a bit familiar. Perhaps too familiar for some.

    Compared to v1 and v2 I find the story better. It starts kind of slowly and finishes fast. Much more action. The end was... well, expected. To be honest, I think the whole series is over rated. Or maybe I set my expectations too high...

I usually stop reading a book that I am not interested in or that I find second-rate so I can spend time on better things, but my reading group has a challenge to read several specific types of book and genre and Graphic Novels were one of the items in the challenge. I had never been tempted to read one before and can only hope that there are far better ones that might redeem the genre somewhere out there. I once tried a food and found it horrible, but tried it again years later and now love it. Sometimes, your first experience just happens to be an awful one. The club's challenge was designed to encourage us to expand our reading tastes and experiences. This did expand my experience, but it only confirmed my tastes. Avoid this book and the rest of the ones in its series or the vampires will get you and make you sorry you didn't listen to me.

Can they survive another 30 days of night? I just don’t understand why the Vampires keep attacking Barrow. Especially after being attacked continuously every year and being driven back every year by a better and better armed defensive town. The vampires have lost their leadership, but still what makes them think that attacking this town every year will do other than kill a few humans and kill a few vampires? Aren’t there other similar towns in the northern areas of Russia? Why have they not grouped there? Again, I’m not a fan of this art style, it’s just too hard to follow the sloppy sketchy art at times during heavy action. The writing in this one was pretty good, nothing too spectacular about it, but nothing cringe worthy either. Overall I like this series and am glad I got a bunch of them. I don’t think I have all of them though. It is available DRM free via Comixology.

I particularly like his faces and the way he does snow/white landscapes - beautiful.

    The vampires return to Barrow, Alaska, to finish off the witnesses to the last attack. The inhabitants of the town are prepared, but not for every trick the vampires have. As it turns out, both sides have a surprise waiting for them. I am afraid that surprise was for the characters, not someone who read the middle volume of the trilogy. I still loved the book, especially when its setting was in Alaska. Niles provided a script full of colorful characters and grounded and thrilling action.
