Writer(s): Clive Barker, Marc Andreyko
Artist(s): Piotr Kowalski

WHY WE LOVE IT: Comics are full of outcast characters, but this is an outcast story, Clive Barker-style. True to this modern horror master’s other work, NIGHTBREED is full of horrifying creatures that captivated us in the 1990 film and live on in this new story. Plus, writer Marc Andreyko is a HUGE fan of NIGHTBREED!

WHY YOU’LL LOVE IT: Before FABLES, before ONCE UPON A TIME, Clive Barker created a secret town of monsters that live among us. Don’t worry if you’ve never seen the film—Barker and writer Marc Andreyko (MANHUNTER) have crafted a story that all horror fans can enjoy. Add to the mix Piotr Kowalski’s art (MARVEL KNIGHTS: HULK) and this is a story that can’t be missed

WHAT IT’S ABOUT: The Nightbreed is a secret society of monsters and misfits that hide away from humans, but have been a part of this world since time immemorial. Explore both the past and the present of this clandestine tribe, unleashing new secrets and horrors as they fight to coexist with mankind.
