The world of the undead is a vast one, with many stories remaining to be told. In 30 Days of Night: Juarez, Matt Fraction (Invincible Iron Man) introduces Lex Nova, former private detective and free-range madman, on the hunt for the bloodsuckers killing a whole mess of Mexican girls. And it ain't a pretty picture, but the art is, thanks to 30 Days co-creator and the Eisner ...more

ive been jumping between 'one of the worst things ive ever read' and 'well I suppose that one part was good...' The plot was hard to follow, by the end of it I saw what happened but I had no idea why, no idea how. I was really confused by the character's motives, even though other aspects of their characterisation was good/interesting/actually made sense, why the hell were they doing any of the things they were doing? it just seriously needs some editing to pull all the threads together, atm the ...more

What a bunch of trash. The only reason why I am even bothering to add this to my ratings is to point out just how bad it was.

I wasn't even five pages into the book and felt insulted at least three times by the derogatory stereotypes and insensitivity to the subject matter. I was expecting the author to bring some attention to the serial killings of hundreds of women in the city of Juarez. Instead, it chose to mock the senseless death of these women.

I couldn't read past twenty pages. To continu

The story itself is interesting, and the author makes a better job at telling the story than Niles, but, as Niles, he falls at the storytelling. It is more comprehensible than Niles's Juarez, but, at the end, it feels like falling apart, like getting confused.

Anyway, the art is amazing as everything Templesmith, and the story can be read.

I did not recommend it to a newbie in 30 DON

I found this story to be terribly confusing. There wasn't ever a good exposition. The transitions were very quick, and not very fluid. While I enjoyed Lex Nova, his character, and his style of speech I didn't feel he was well used. The killer vampire clown family was a wonderful device, but again, I never truly felt it was explained what they were doing and how.

I feel like this story needed more editing so it could be clearer...

2 different horror stories. The first one is totally lousy, inept, and wooden. The second story features some great ideas and dialogue, far beyond what I would expect from this genre of comics, and it is also quite effective horror. Great artwork, spooky and stylized but not idiosyncratic. The plot however is strangely jumpy, and totally falls apart by the end. It doesn't even make much sense.

Matt Fraction does a great job picking up where Steve Niles left off. And though I might get some flak for this - he arguably does it better than Niles. His smart alecky cowboy with serious inside voice issues steals the show, which is difficult to do what with clown vamps making deals with corrupt Mexican politicians and all.

"How he got started in comics: In 1983, when Fraction was 7 years old and growing up in Kansas City, Mo., he became fascinated by the U.S. invasion of Grenada and created his own newspaper to explain the event. "I've always been story-driven, telling stories with pictures and words," he said.

Education and first job: Fraction never graduated from college. He stopped half a semester short of an art
