Barrow, Alaska is the northern most settlement of the United States of America. Due to its unique geographical location, the sun stays up in the sky from May 10 to August 2, and then for approximately 65 days between November 18 and January 24 it does not see sunlight whatsoever.
Now imagine some evil intelligent vampires take full advantage of the sunless condition during those winter months and descend upon Barrow, and have themselves a feeding frenzy. That is the premise of the series of graphic novels called “30 Days of Night“.
Awesome premise. I like. This will be my next lot of reading. And it’s being turned into a movie as well, starring Josh Hartnett and Melissa George. Double awesome.
