NILES GETS SACRED HEARTS BEATING
As if comics scribe Steve Niles wasn?t busy enough already, IDW Publishing has announced that Niles and his 30 DAYS OF NIGHT collaborator, artist Ben Templesmith, will team up on the company?s first ongoing series. Titled SACRED HEARTS, it?s about a man whose adopted parents both die, and who learns a terrible secret that sends him on a search for the truth?leading him into a world of supernatural creatures and Satanic cults.
?SACRED HEARTS is a combination of ideas I've been playing with for a while,? Niles says. ?It?s sort of a horror soap opera with characters like vampires, werewolves, devils and one poor priest who walks the line between the holy and unholy.? Adds Templesmith, ?Don?t expect the artwork to be the same as 30 DAYS OF NIGHT?but expect it to have the same vibrancy and atmosphere. I?m going to experiment like hell on this one.? The series will debut in 2004.
