Dark Horse has been on it with Guillermo Del Toro and Chuck Hogan’s “The Strain.” Pumping out adaptations of these stellar vampire novels that exceed the quality of the already stellar original source material. I’m sure you’ve heard by now that FX is adapting the first novel in the series into a television show launching this summer, and today Dark Horse was happy to announce the continuation of the graphic novel series with “The Strain: The Night Eternal.” Hit the jump for the press release from Dark Horse.
From Dark Horse:
As the world gears up for the premiere of the new FX television program adapting the original novel trilogy The Strain, Dark Horse announces The Night Eternal, the third comics chapter of this ongoing vampire epic, adapted by David Lapham and Mike Huddleston.
Following the first two comics series, The Strain and the recently wrapped The Fall, The Night Eternal will begin on August 20, just after The Strain’s television debut on FX!
It’s been two years since the Master’s plan succeeded and a near apocalypse coated the world in darkness. Now able to roam freely, the Master’s legion of vampires rule the world—a horrifying police state where humans are harvested for blood. As humanity despairs, Dr. Ephraim Goodweather and an unlikely team of heroes continue their fight against extinction, all the while hoping to unlock the secret to the Master’s demise. The final chapter in the Strain Trilogy, the series that put a terrifying twist on the vampire genre, begins here.
