Today, IDW Publishing announced that writer Steve Niles, the creator of “Fused” and “30 Days of Night,” will be unleashing a follow up to “Savage Membrane,” starring the monster hunter
Cal McDonald, entitled “Hairball.” Having initially been serialized
by Dark Horse Comics, this 32-page collection comes with an all-new cover by
interior artist Casey Jones (known for his work on “Spider-Girl” and “Birds
of Prey”) and the story focuses on some very savage werewolves who have a
thirst for human beings!
“Imagine a marriage of Philip Marlowe and ‘The X-Files.’ ‘Hairball’ could be
their baby — it’s just plain scary,” says Beau Smith, VP of Sales and
Marketing for IDW Publishing.
“I think Steve has the best concepts of anyone writing comics. As with ’30
Days of Night,’ I’m sure this book is going to draw the attention of lots of
folks in Hollywood,” said Ted Adams, Publisher of IDW Publishing.
IDW will be releasing the collection in September 2002 and you can find more
