30 Days of Night: 30 Days 'til Death #2

by David Lapham

Lapham continues his excellent mini-series with this issue. The book starts with a flashback to a better, easier time for Rufus before he became hunted by the vampires we saw briefly in the first issue. This gives us some perspective on why he is so focused on not drawing attention to himself, and explains the reason why he kidnapped the woman in the first issue.

Now, Rufus lives in domestic bliss (at least in theory). Lapham continues to build on the cast of characters that live in his building, and the issue culminates in an excellent cliff-hanger.

As I said before, I know nothing about the 30 Days of Night franchise, but if I thought they were all like this, I would be doing a lot of hunting on ebay right about now....
