Steve Niles and Damien Worm Make Halloween Monthly
Never let it be said that Steve Niles is lazy. Not content with co-creating the likes of 30 Days of Night and writing a mounting pile of horror comics, the man continues to make more and more titles and I for one am thankful for it. Niles is set to team up with artist Damien Worm once again for a new ongoing series from IDW Publishing entitled The October Faction, beginning this fall.
"The lead character is Fredrick Allan, a retired monster hunter who is now teaching Monsters & Mythology while he hides from 30 years of enemies. His heyday was in the 70's, so October Faction will flashback to those 70's monster hunting days,” said series writer Niles, “The main thread is about this man who is trying to get to know his family for the first time ever. Unfortunately, while he has neglected his wife she's become a pill-popping thrill-killer. His two children, just turned 19 and 20, are starting to piece together who their father is and also whether or not he is their real father."
"After writing mini-series for the better part of 25 years, I am thrilled to be writing a monthly ongoing and all the more thrilled it's with IDW," added Niles, "October Faction will be Halloween every month if Damien and I have anything to say about it."
Niles and Worm have recently worked together on Monster & Madman, a three issue mini-series detailing the secret history shared between Frankenstein's Monster and Jack the Ripper. The second issue is scheduled to hit shelves on April 2nd, 2014. There's been no official word yet as to when the first issue of The October Faction will arrive as of yet.
