According to Variety, Guillermo Del Toro’s ‘The Strain’ is to be released by Dark Horse as a 24 part series in 2012.
Del Toro is exec producing an adaptation of his and co-writer Chuck Hogan’s sci-fi vampire novel trilogy “The Strain” for Dark Horse Comics.
The 24-issue series, unspooling Dec. 14, is being adapted by writer David Lapham (“Stray Bullets”) and artist Mike Huddleston (“MK Ultra”). Three paperback graphic novel compilations will follow, beginning in fall 2012.
What is even more interesting (for me) is that it sounds like it’s going to be day and date!
Each 32-page Dark Horse issue will be released day-and-date in paper and digital versions. After the eight monthly “Strain” issues finish their rollout next July, the eight-part “Fall” series will launch in the fall, followed by eight “Eternal” comics.
This is one I am really looking forward too!
