The vampire comic In the Dust is getting a big screen adaptation according to The Hollywood Reporter.  In the Dust is a Top Cow title created by George Mahaffey and Christian Duce.  According to the report, Mahaffey will pen the movie adaptation.

The story is set against the Dust Bowl of the 1930s, when “black blizzards” obscured the Midwest and prairies. The plot sees a G-Man investigating the disappearances of entire families from small towns during these storms, uncovering the existence of an army of vampires that are using them as cover to ravage the countryside. The agent is forced to team up with remnants of Al Capone’s gang to save Chicago when the vampires turn their attention to the Windy City.

While I’m growing weary of the monster genre, mixing genres like this has captured my interest once again. And, if you haven’t heard of In the Dust yet, that’s because it hasn’t been released yet. The 165-page graphic novel is scheduled to be released next year.
