Nocterra #1, Image Comics, Scott Snyder & Tony S. Daniel

WHAT IS IT?

Nocterra is a bombastic action road trip that ferries readers through a nightmarish wasteland full of mutated wildlife and bloodthirsty mercenaries.


Snyder’s own love of American trucker culture is evident throughout, making for a masterful mash-up of Ice Road Truckers and the sci-fi thriller Pitch Black.


WHAT’S IT ABOUT?

(Minor Spoilers)

The sun is gone, and only darkness remains. Human society has reshaped itself around one simple rule: any living thing caught in the darkness for too long is forever changed into a monstrous shade.


Thirteen years have passed since “The Big PM” and Val ‘Sundog’ Riggs is working as a ferryman, transporting people between the remaining human settlements. Due to childhood cataracts, Val has spent most of her life in the dark, making her tough and distant from all except her dying brother.
