Thirty Days of Night | Comics
For thousands of years, humans believed that Vampires are only a scary mythical creature of darkness who sucks blood and they only exist in the books and fantasy novels. Since people refuses to believe that these very lethal and heinous creatures are for real, it gives the Vampires an advantage what they need to keep the continuation of their existence running. Because, years of absence of these creatures from human-sight may have faded their memory from men’s mind but they are feared and hated by the humans since the "Council of Elders" made their presence known to public ages ago. After struggling for over a millennium, only a few of them made it out to the present led by an elder named Vicente.

Marlowe, one of Vicente’s own kind has raided the city of Barrow, Alaska, during a 30 straight days of polar night to have a non-stop feeding fest with a few of his blood-thirsty followers that made its residents known about the secret presence of them which their race has been keeping under cover for quite some time. Vicente eventually arrives at Barrow upon calling, only to confront and take care of Marlowe later for what he mindlessly did by blowing their cover to the humans and then decides to continue what Marlowe began anyway, so that there is no witness left to tell their tale. Sheriff Eben Olemaun along with his wife Stella Olemaun and a handful of survivors made a last stand against the Nosferatu. The winter may have had weakened them but since the night is young, the creatures of darkness are still to do a lot more to the humans.

Initially written by Steve Niles (30 Days of Night – Dark Days, Night of the Living Dead – London), 30 Days of Night is a comic book franchise that started with the three-issue mini-series of the same name published in 2002 by IDW Publishing. Artist Ben Templesmith (30 Days of Night – Bloodsucker Tales, 30 Days of Night – Red Snow) joined Niles in the series and later penciller Szymon Kudranski, Brandon Hovet, Josh Medors, Kody Chamberlain, Nat Jones, Milx, Alex Sanchez, Justin Randall and Bill Sienkiewicz (30 Days of Night – Beyond Barrow, Elektra – Assassin) have drawn pages for other tales that came up as the spin-off under the main title. The series managed to gain massive popularity and writer Matt Fraction (Defenders, Fantastic Four), Dan Wickline, Kelly Sue DeConnick and Ben Templesmith also participated in the latter issues of the franchise. As the series became a hit in the market, it also served the plot of a horror film titled 30 Days of Night (2007), which was loosely based on the core story of the comic book.
