That's right crew- the first issue of a NOCTURNALS comic book hit the stands in late 1994, a little more than a year after work on the art for the issue had begun. The book sold well, garnering praise from the likes of Alex Ross and Mike Mignola, earned an Eisner Nomination for Best Painter (a category that no longer exists, incidentally) and sparked an entire sub-genre of 'Monster Noir' (as author and one-time NOCTURNALS contributing writer, Christopher Golden, described it)
