Dark Horse has announced that their fall lineup will include a comic adaptation of Guillermo del Toro and Chuck Hogan’s bestselling novel series THE STRAIN.
Adapting the first novel from del Toro and Hogan’s THE STRAIN TRILOGY, this horrifying first chapter—told in eight issues—deals with an outbreak of diabolical proportions that puts a terrifying twist on the vampire genre. The comic will be written by David Lapham, with art by Mike Huddleston.“When discussing THE STRAIN, Chuck and I agreed on one thing regarding any possible adaptation: It should not start until after we were done with the last book in the trilogy, and we would only entertain a medium that would allow us to expand the world and the characters we had created,” says del Toro. “Working with Dark Horse, David Lapham and Mike Huddleston provides us with the chance of expanding it further. A dream come true!”“The chance to work with del Toro on any project was just too good to pass up,” says Lapham. “But the fact that this is a vicious horror project, that I’m teamed with a great artist and been given a great amount of creative freedom to interpret the novel has made this a dream project.”The first issue of THE STRAIN arrives on sale on December 14.
