The original 30 Days of Night introduced vampires to the darkened streets of Barrow, Alaska, and Sony Pictures and Ghosthouse Studios set those same vamps loose on the movie-going public! But as many comics fans know, the story doesn't stop at the end of the first book, and now fans can collect the entire, original 30 Days of Night trilogy in this handsome hardcover editio...more

Взяла не глядя с полки – и влюбилась. При ознакомительном пролистывании чуть не упала в обморок от обилия кровяки и пугающих до колик зубодробительных картинок, но плюнула и взяла – вдогонку к милым котикам Джеффри Брауна и эротическому путешествию Дэйва МакКина.
Серьезно, это любовь с первого взгляда. Кино, снятое по мотивам комикса, я не имела счастья видеть, хотя в свое время оно дошумелось и до меня. Деревенька на севере Аляски, где ровно 30 зимних дней не встает солнце, крайне привлекательна...more
I was super excited to read this. I watched the movie when it first came out and I wasn't able to get my hands on a copy of the comic until recently. I had really high hopes. It was pretty good in the beginning, but it quickly went downhill. The book is separated into three sections. '30 Days of Night' was without a doubt the best part for me. I loved reading about the attack and was kind of disappointed by how rushed everything was. I felt like the events could have been drawn out a little long...more
Excellent. The artwork is genuinely suited to the story: atmospheric, creepy and sometimes shocking. It's great to see that vampires can still be terrifying, and 30 Days of Night proves it. I'd give the first volume 5 stars individually, for being so perfectly matched to its medium, but 2 & 3 were just slightly less effective, so I'll stick with 4 overall. Still, the 3 volume original trilogy covers a full story arc, and it's nice to read to the closure.

Recommended for graphic novel fans, th...more

I got home today to a package and opened it up to see that my 3 books arrived!!

I picked it up just to flip through see the great illustrations and just started reading it.... 45 mins later I am finsished and wanting to pick up where the book left off, I will be ordering Vol 2 ASAP!!!
January 7th 2014 the compendium is released, I know having both volumes is basically IT, OR the price for it $70...more
Three in one- I liked it alot, because it completed the whole story arc. No need to drag this tale out for another 80 issues (oh, I'm looking at you, Walking Dead). The first story, 30 Days of Night, is so novel in its storyline, I can't believe it's never been done (not that I've checked). The ending is super bad-ass and touching; the next volume is less satisfying, but the ending there is also compelling; the 3rd part, Return to Barrow, is really good- completes everything, and besides the fat...more
This could have been a lot better than it was. There were some interesting concepts here. But it was just bad. I pretty much hated it. The writing wasn't good. I didn't care about the characters or what was happening or anything. And if the writing in a graphic novel isn't good, the artwork better at least make up for it. But in this case it didn't at all. It was horrible. I get that the artist was going for a certain mood, but you couldn't tell what was going on at all. Usually with a graphic n...more

This was VERY difficult to rate. I'm still getting a feel for graphic novels--I never cared much for comic books growing up, but as an adult, I have friends whose opinions I deeply respect who love the things. 30 Days of Night Omnibus is a collection of the "original" trilogy that together encompasses a whole story.

At first I was very disappointed by the 1st story--the one you've probably seen in the movie. There was no time to develop a fondness for the characters and so what it ended, I really...more
Having seen the rather disappointing movie adaptation of this (well of the first book anyway) I was surprised by how much I enjoyed it. The first story was much to be expected but the second and the third (the third in particular) surpassed my expectations. The illustrations are quite dark and I did find it a little difficult to follow parts of the story, particularly as some of the characters looked quite similar at times. Having said that though once you get used to the illustration style and...more
For two-thirds of this Omnibus, this was a re-read, and I've discovered I'm not really a big fan of this world. The art especially bothers me - I've never been a fan of Templesmith's style, and the original especially is so sloppy that it's almost impossible to make out what's going on. I know it's intentional, but it still offputting. Eben and Stella's story is interesting enough, but it amazes me that there are now 11 or 12 books in the series. I'm reading four now, but it doesn't seem like th...more
I loved this trilogy!!
My biggest complaint here is the art. It's so dark and chaotic that its often hard to tell who's who, what's happening, etc. I'm all for atmosphere, but when I think a character was killed, only to find out pages later that they're alive, then have to go back and see if I can figure out who died, it really interrupts my enjoyment of the story. Apart from that, I really liked the return of the wholly evil vampire.
I won't be afraid to admit that I'm a bit disappointed. I guess I expected to get to know the characters more, but the novels themselves were so short and ended so quickly that I didn't really feel anything once it was over. The only thing that I really enjoyed about this book was the action and gore but besides that it really didn't hook me in. So disappointing.
Just found my new addiction must get them all lol there comic book reads but so good it was rely gory and pretty crepe but next time i think it would be better to get the comic book it wasn't a bad read in the nook but i did have to zoom in on this read which i did not think the nook color could do with a book well comic book
It was alright. The art is a bit weird, and I know for a fact that Barrow isn't the furthest northern town in North America! ;-) but other than that, not a bad story. Could have been better though.
Great storytelling, and visually stunning. I could spend so much time just looking at the composition of the images. Well worth the foray out of YA lit.

Still one of the best modern vampire novels (not just graphic novels). Artwork is perfect and perfectly unconventional.
About as great as a graphic novel about vampire attacks could ever be. I looked at some of the art over and over again.
The first of the three stories is really fantastic but the second and third don't love up to it.
