About the Book:
Last week they invaded Manhattan. This week they will destroy the world.

The Fall

The vampiric virus is spreading and soon  will envelop the globe. Amid the chaos, Eph Goodweather—head of the Centers for  Disease Control’s team—leads a band out to stop these bloodthirsty monsters. But  it may be too late.

Ignited by the Master’s horrific plan, a  war has erupted between Old and New World vampires. Caught between these warring  forces, powerless and vulnerable, humans find themselves no longer the consumers  but the consumed. At the center of the conflict lies an ancient text that  contains the vampires’ entire history . . . and their darkest secrets.

Whoever finds the book can control the  outcome of the war and, ultimately, the fate of us all.

 

About the Authors:

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.

Not one to rest on his laurels Nixey has  written a script, Simple Machines and has partnered with Phoenix Pictures to  bring it to the big screen.
