(San Diego, CA; Feb 5) – For girls living in Juarez, Mexico, life can be brief, brutal, and tends to end bloody. Some say up to 200 are “missing”… others less optimistic say 400 or more. Someone or something has made killing them a sport, and the authorities are less than motivated when it comes to solving the crimes. Girls have gone “missing” in Juarez for as long as anyone can remember, and like the hellish drudgery of the factories most of them work in, it’s become a way of life. And besides, what are a few more dead girls in a place like this?
Enter Lex Nova, a former private detective and free-range madmen, and the best chance the people of Juarez have of ridding themselves of this plague of murder and death. But corruption runs far deeper in this hole-in-the-wall town than anyone suspects, where death is something of a business, and the stakes have just been raised.
But before Lex finally figures out who’s behind it all things are about get to much, much worse, for him and the girls of Juarez…
From fan favorite writer Matt Fraction (Invincible Iron Man, Casanova) and Eisner and International Horror Guild Award-Nominated artist and 30 Days of Night co-creator Ben Templesmith, comes this disturbing and gruesome addition to the 30 Days of Night world of the undead.
Originally published in the monthly series 30 Days of Night: Blood Sucker Tales, this 8-issue arc is collected for the first time in one sleek volume. In addition to the main story 30 Days of Night: Juarez includes an art gallery by Templesmith.
