Well, an interesting first day at SDCC, it appears. Although I could not attend this year, I am able to scan the various news reports online for GDT news – and here is what I have found:
- As was reported on our forums, Guillermo Del Toro will be working with Dark Horse to release a comic book version of THE STRAIN, the trilogy of novels written by GDT and Chuck Hogan. The comic will be written by David Lapham (Stray Bullets), with art by Mike Huddleston (MK Ultra). Variety reports that the series is set for publication on December 14th. Three paperback graphic novels will be released in the fall of 2012. Each book will be 32 pages, with each novella in the trilogy getting an 8 issue series. GDT says he will “supervise everything”, giving his opinion on the art, the covers and screenplays. (Artwork below taken from Bleeding Cool).
- Guillermo was supposed to attend the announcement of the Dark Horse STRAIN project last night, but it appears he was unable to attend because of a back injury. I will post more information as I get it, and will find out if he will be attending his other SDCC commitments.
- DON’T BE AFRAID OF THE DARK has a new official website at http://www.dontbeafraidofthedark.com/. You can lookup showtimes now and order tickets through the site. It is a pretty cool site that lets you “explore” the DARK mansion and unlock clues.
