5 Days to 30

It's hard to believe that "30 Days of Night" opens this weekend. It seems that I've been waiting for it forever. To help us make it through these last fews days, Newsarama is running a week long series starting with THIS INTERVIEW with Steve Niles. If that's not enough, there is also THIS R-Rated Clip from the movie.

You know, I don't really get what's so great about 30 Days of Night.

I've read the first two graphic novels, and, honestly, I was underwhelmed.

The art was pretty, but the visual storytelling was virtually nonexistent, and there was nothing particularly fresh about the plot other than the titular gimmick of an Arctic Circle setting – which I first saw in an indy vampire film a decade ago called "Jugular Wine."

But then, I haven't really been impressed with anything I've read by Niles. His "I Am Legend" comic was more a transcription than an adaptation, and the few other things of his I've read (admittedly, not that much) played out like a regurgitation of B-movie plots.

Now, much the same could be said of my stuff, and I don't begrudge him his success, I just don't get all the hullabaloo...
