Batman #98

Scott Snyder, Tony S. Daniel, Tomeu Morey, Deron Bennett, and Will Dennis Kickstart Nocternal from Snyder’s Best Jackett Press

Imagine that tomorrow the sun simply doesn’t rise. You wait. And you wait, but night just continues… 

You can still feel the sun’s warmth – it must be there – but for some reason, light no longer reaches the earth. There’s only darkness. But this new darkness, there’s something strange about it, something terrifying. Because anything – or anyone – that stays in it too long starts to change… 

Bestselling comic book writer Scott Snyder, acclaimed artist Tony S. Daniel, colorist Tomeu Morey, letterer Deron Bennett, and editor Will Dennis are collaborating on Nocternal — a new creator-owned comic book series about humanity trying to survive in everlasting darkness — and launching a Kickstarter campaign for Nocternal Collector’s Edition, an exclusive, behind-the-scenes edition of the series’ debut issue. Starting at 72 pages, Nocternal Collector’s Edition is a one-of-a-kind reading experience, with Scott Snyder’s script displayed alongside Tony S. Daniel’s linework to provide a rare look at the process of making comics. If funded on Kickstarter, Nocternal Collector’s Edition will be released to backers ahead of Image Comics’ release of issue 1 this winter and would mark the first time that one of Snyder’s scripts has been published in its entirety.

Nocternal takes place ten years after the world is plunged into an everlasting night that turns all living creatures into monstrous “shades.” Enter Valentina “Val” Riggs, a skilled “ferryman” who transports people and goods along deadly unlit roads with her heavily illuminated eighteen-wheeler. When an old man promising sanctuary offers Val a job to drive him and his granddaughter up through the Rocky Mountains, she takes it, hoping there might be some truth to his claim. What she finds in the end, though, is something much more horrifying than any shade…

To showcase Daniel’s line art in all its detailed glory, the creators are printing the collector’s edition in black and white, available in two formats: an unsigned softcover and a hardcover signed by Snyder and Daniel. Both editions will only be available to Kickstarter backers. The funding goal of $37K will cover the book printing, rewards production, and fees from Kickstarter, Stripe, and BackerKit. Any funds that are raised beyond the funding goal will help cover production costs for the first story arc, up until issue #6. Additional pledge tiers include a limited edition lithograph, a sketch by Daniel, a master class with Snyder, and more.

DC has revealed November’s Justice League covers, giving more insight into Joshua Williamson’s upcoming five-issue Justice League “Doom Metal” story that ties directly in to DC’s ongoing Dark Nights: Death Metal event!

Nightwing has his memory back, and Cyborg and Starfire are back from the Ghost Sector, so look for deep cuts from the team’s past as they rally this Justice League towards Perpetua and the Legion of Doom!
