30 Days of Night is just currently growing to be more well known. I hear they're going to make a film. It's about vampires in Alaska during its month without sun. It was collected into a graphic novel which spawned two continuations: Dark Days and 30 Days of Night: Return to Barrow. Return to Barrow is my favorite.

Elk's Run is an 8-issue arc that's only in it's second issue, so it's barely known by anyone. It's very Stephen King-ish with a storyline I cannot sum up from what I've read. I just know it's really cool.

The Chaos! Comics were pretty big in the mid to late 90's, Lady Death being the most known character, who I wasn't as much into. I was obsessed with Evil Ernie and Purgatori though. In its later years, Chaos! Comics started going downhill into a "big tits and machine guns" sort of intellegence and stopped paying attention to strong characters and good storylines. In 2002 the company went bankrupt and people forgot about it.

There's no earthly way of knowing which direction we are going. There's no knowing where we're rowing or which way the river's flowing. Is it raining? Is it snowing? Is a hurricane a-blowing? Not a speck of light is showing, so the danger must be growing. Are the fires of hell a-glowing? Is the grisly reaper mowing? Yes, the danger must be growing 'cause the rowers keep on rowing, and they're certainly not showing any signs that they are slowing. AAAGGHHH!!!
