About the Book:
The Earth lies shrouded in darkness . . . And it is our world no longer.
Two years have passed since the vampiric virus was first unleashed upon humanity—and nuclear winter has cast the poisoned world into eternal night. The remnants of the living who were not turned have been subjugated—with many imprisoned in camps to be bred and bled for the sustenance of the Master's vast vampire army.
Yet the fight continues. Dr. Eph Goodweather, of the Centers for Disease Control's biological threats team; his former colleague and lover, Dr. Nora Martinez; and the exterminator Vasiliy Fet lead a band of freedom fighters aided by Mr. Quinlan, the half-breed offspring of the Master, who now is bent on revenge. At humankind's darkest hour, one of them may hold the key to salvation. But a traitor is among them. And who will be willing to make the ultimate sacrifice so that others may live?

Born in Guadalajara, Mexico, Guillermo del Toro made his feature directorial debut in 1995 with the film Cronos, and has since gone on to direct Mimic, The Devil's Backbone, Blade II, Hellboy I, Hellboy II, and Pan's Labyrinth, which garnered enormous critical praise worldwide and won three Academy Awards.
Chuck Hogan is the author of several acclaimed novels, including Devils in Exile and The Killing Moon. The Town was awarded the Hammett Prize for excellence in crime writing, and named one of the ten best novels of the year by Stephen King. He lives with his family outside Boston.
About the Artist:
Troy Nixey grew up on the prairies of Canada and used the long winters to his advantage, writing and drawing as much as possible. A natural storyteller and artist Nixey focused his artistic efforts in the field of comic books beginning in 1990. For sixteen years Nixey worked on a wide range of highly visible properties (Batman, the Simpsons, X-Men, the Matrix comics), but it is his more personal work that has garnered Troy his reputation as a unique creator (Trout, Bacon, Jenny Finn).
Deemed "truly original with a creepy elegant art style" by his peers and "eclectic and memorable, an artist who draws some of the most haunting stories in comics" by the critics, Troy Nixey has brought his distinct brand of art and storytelling to illustrate stories for some of the most notable creators in comic. They include Mike Mignola (creator of Hellboy), Neil Gaiman (award winning novelist and screenwriter) and Andrew Cosby (creator and producer of the TV series Eureka).
Even with the success and creative freedom Nixey discovered in comics his first love has always been film. He focused his passion for movies into a short film Latchkey's Lament, that premiered at the 2007 Toronto International Film Festival. His short was warmly received and enabled Nixey to parlay the short’s success into his feature directorial debut, Don't Be Afraid of the Dark, co-written and produced by Guillermo Del Toro for Miramax Films.
