As the late, great Ray Bradbury said, “October is a rare month for boys”, and so it is as IDW Publishing submit for your approval The October Faction.
30 Days of Night co-creator Steve Niles and Damien Worm have collaborated on this new, horror-themed ongoing series, which concerns the day-to-day minutiae of a rather peculiar family.
"The lead character is Fredrick Allan, a retired monster hunter who is now teaching Monsters & Mythology while he hides from 30 years of enemies," Niles explains.
"His heyday was in the '70s, so October Faction will flashback to those '70s monster hunting days.
"The main thread is about this man who is trying to get to know his family for the first time ever. Unfortunately, while he has neglected his wife she's become a pill-popping thrill-killer. His two children, just turned 19 and 20, are starting to piece together who their father is and also whether or not he is their real father."
It sounds promising but then I’m a sucker for strange families, The Munsters, The Addams Family, my girlfriends…
The October Faction will be moving into a neighbourhood near you this autumn.
