From the press release:
NIGHT & FOG is a six-issue miniseries that takes its cue from classic horror literature and turns it on its head, reinventing the monster comic for a new generation. On an island off the coast of Canada, a military science experiment, linked to a terrible secret from the past, infects a nearby village, turning the inhabitants into bloodthirsty, rampaging creatures. Even armed with the state-of-the-art weaponry, the military personnel on the island are helpless against creatures who are almost impossible to destroy and can adapt under almost any attack. They’ve created the perfect killing machine that can survive under any conditions, but they no longer have the means to control them. For the small band of survivors, it’s one terrible, endless night, which they must somehow survive until an elite rescue team can arrive to save them.
NIGHT & FOG is written by Alex Leung and Matthew Bradford, with stunning artwork by Argentine artist Roberto Castro. Castro’s gritty, realistic style, hearkens back to the classic look of ’70s horror magazines Eerie and Creepy. Colorist JM Ringuet, whose evocative, painted coloring style adds to the sense of dread and excitement, rounds out the creative team.
Leung cites James Cameron’s seminal Aliens as a primary inspiration, saying, "I’ve always loved the idea of creatures so potent they render even the most cutting-edge military technology utterly useless. I like putting the most highly-trained, elite commandos in situations even they cannot comprehend."
Bradford compliments Leung by taking his cue from another generation of fear. "I listened to wall-to-wall Hammer soundtracks while writing NIGHT & FOG. Nothing sets the tone for spine-tingling terror like the music of James Bernard."
