Dark Horse Comics recently partnered with Felicia Day’s Geek & Sundry Youtube channel to offer a series of horror motion comics. To kick off their fall lineup, today sees the release of the first episode of The Strain motion comic.
The series began as a trilogy of novels written by Guillermo del Toro and novelist Chuck Hogan, which spun off into a highly acclaimed comic book adaptation from David Lapham, and now has become a motion comic. “The Strain” chronicles Dr. Ephraim Goodweather’s encounter with a Boeing 777 that lands at JFK International Airport and goes dark on the runway. Dr. Ephraim, who works for the Center for Disease Control, fears a terrorist attack and calls in and his team of expert biological-threat first responders. What lies in store is a much darker attack that has roots in ancient vampire lore. Below, you can check out the first episode of “The Strain” motion comic.
