SECRET INVASION AFTERMATH: BETA RAY BILL – THE GREEN OF EDEN #1
Written by KIERON GILLEN
Penciled by DAN BRERETON
as you may know, Nocturnals approaches its 15th Anniversary this year. At this time, fifteen years ago, I was painting the first mini-series and struggling to hone my writing skills to create something unique in the comics marketplace. At that time, Hellboy was two months away from debuting, and there were no little girl characters in superhero comics. No books combining Lovecraft and Chandler (really!) or horror, crime and super-heroic flair all in one. There were no zombie gunfighters, no Halloween-themed characters, and no one had ever called a group or a book 'Nocturnals'.
I was sad to hear of the passing of Bob Wilkins on January 7th. I wasn't allowed to stay up late enough to catch his show as a kid, but I did see a few of them, most impostatnyl for me, Stan Lee's appearance during the release of ORIGINS OF MARVEL COMICS. It was at that time I started to realize that I didnt have to be scared of horror movies all the time, they could be fun , too.
