OMFG: Preview: The Strain #2

David Lapham continues his vamp-tastic adaptation of Guillermo del Toro’s epic novel series in the new year. The debut issue of The Strain was a massive hit and left readers demanding more. The first issue gave us a glimpse into the eerie mythos of del Toro’s vampire world, offering incredible character development, and left things on the cusp of destruction for our hero. Hopefully, in the second issue we will see a bit more of that tall gangly dude and his creepy cane. Check the 6-page preview after the jump courtesy of Dark Horse. Read on for the skinny…

“As an eclipse covers New York City in midday darkness, Dr. Ephraim Goodweather and his team from the Centers for Disease Control struggle to find an explanation for what happened to Flight 753. But when the symptoms don’t add up to chemical warfare, and bizarre circumstances unexplained by modern medicine arise, Ephraim begins to entertain the ramblings of a Holocaust survivor who knows too much about this unknown threat.”
