Sam Kieth is notably known for his groundbreaking comic book, the Maxx. It’s been 20 years since the Maxx’s debut in his own title. Yet fans still clamor for Kieth’s unique art style and storytelling.

The art book seems more like an autobiography than an art book, but you still get to see Kieth’s thought process as he creates his art.

Overall, this is a hard book to judge due to the fact that if you are not a fan of Sam Kieth, The Maxx or his art, there is nothing in this amazing collection that will convince you to buy it.

Coming in as a fan, I am giving this book a personal 5/5 and hope that everyone will take the time to see what I see in this truly talented artist.

30 Days of Night Returns

All-new miniseries by Joe R. Lansdale and Sam Kieth coming in May

IDW Publishing is pleased to announce the return of its preeminent horror series, 30 DAYS OF NIGHT. Originally created by Steve Niles and Ben Templesmith, 30 DAYS OF NIGHT has spawned two feature films and countless nightmares since it first launched in 2002. Now, award-winning horror writer Joe R. Lansdale and legendary artist Sam Kieth (Sandman) take the helm with an all-new series 30 DAYS OF NIGHT: NIGHT, AGAIN.

“Lansdale and Kieth on 30 Days of Night is really a nightmare come true,” said Chris Ryall, IDW’s Chief Creative Officer and Editor in Chief. “What they’re doing in NIGHT, AGAIN is a return to form for 30 DAYS, hearkening back to the terror of the first series while pushing it into an insane new direction, too.”

30 DAYS OF NIGHT: NIGHT, AGAIN follows a band of survivors from the vampire infestation, who take refuge at a science facility in the Alaskan wilds. The inhabitants of the research compound are trying to determine the nature of a strange object found in the ice when the survivors arrive, leading to a frightening and bloody confrontation between humans and vampires! In addition to regular covers by Kieth, this four-issue series will also feature incentive covers by acclaimed Scalped cover artist Davide Furno.

“30 DAYS OF NIGHT has always been a singularly fantastic horror property,” said series editor Tom Waltz.  “And now Joe and Sam are stamping their unique—and, dare I say, twisted—vision onto the franchise with 30 DAYS OF NIGHT: NIGHT, AGAIN. I’m not exaggerating when I say 30 DAYS OF NIGHT fans are in for a wholly unexpected and unpredictable ride with this series, not to mention a fascinating addition to franchise canon.”
