Last Temptation
by Neil Gaiman, Michael Zulli, & Alice Cooper
Paperback: 104 pages
Dark Horse Comics
ISBN: 156971455X
Steven is afraid. Afraid of ghost stories, afraid of growing up ... just afraid. That is, until he meets the mysterious Showman and his Theatre of the Real. Steven takes a ticket and watches the show on a dare, but getting out of the performance will be harder than he ever imagined. And Steven learns what it is to be truly afraid.
Neil Gaiman, internationally acclaimed writer of both prose fiction (Neverwhere, Stardust) and graphic novels (The Sandman, Signal to Noise) and artist Michael Zulli (The Sandman, The Dreaming) team up to create this dark and brooding morality tale. Originally published as part of the short-lived Marvel Music line of the early `90s, this stunning trade paperback features sepia-colored ink on cream paper to better showcase the lush beauty of Zulli`s duoshade artwork in an affordable 6x9 format.

From Publishers Weekly
A spooky collaboration between novelist and comics writer Gaiman (Sandman; and see review of American Gods, above) and creepy shock rocker Cooper, this is the story of Steven, a boy with many fears: girls, ghost stories and growing up among them. On a dare, he steps into an odd theater and meets a mysterious, top-hatted showman, an Alice Cooper-like figure (complete with dark eye-circles) who offers him a way to avoid his fears by simply giving up his "potential" and staying forever in a dreamy netherworld of spirits and wraiths. And after encountering Mercy, a beautiful ticket-taker in the ghostly theater, Steven gives the offer serious consideration. Cooper is the inspiration for the Grand Guignol of this demonic theater, a chilling metaphor for the seductive allure of complacency and indolence. Gaiman's story is a whimsical horror tale about confronting the fears within, and Zulli's black-and-white illustrations have a dark, emotive line, presented in a brownish, bloodlike hue that makes even a mundane, autumnal street scene seem eerie and foreboding.

When the terminator cuts across the country, dividing day into night, it is time for those who thrive in darkness to come out under the stars . Bats chase insects and moths are drawn to porchlights. Possums grub and wheeze in wet culverts while the masked Raccoon crosses a busy highway with it's young. And while the odd barn owl dives for a juicy field mouse, far across the fields, a city awakens.

By day Pacific City is a bright and busy coastal sprawl. By night, it undergoes a Hyde-like transformation. Pacific City turns in, and a darker one takes it's place.

A City of Peril. A town where death comes too cheap and too often, and dark deals sap the lifeblood and replace it with cold sewage. It is on these Perilous streets that Doc Horror and his inhuman crew lurk. Vigilant ... cloaked in shadows ... No criminal alive has matched Horror and his company. The Nocturnals fear no man by night. Of course, dawn will always have the final say ...
About the Author

Dan lives in the Sierra Nevada mountains with his three kids and a string of ill-fated pets.

The Gunwitch, silent and deadly bodyguard to the misfit family of monstrous heroes known as the Nocturnals, breaks away in his first solo adventure! When the pistol-packing Gunwitch and his young charge, Evening Horror, find themselves in a small town ravaged by an unholy war between undead outlaws and true Hell's Angels - motorcycle ridin' vampires - The Gunwitch takes it upon himself to bring down both sides before any more innocents can be hurt.
But as the undead protector embroils himself in the conflict, what once seemed to be an old fashioned turf war is revealed to be a much more sinister conflict with far-reaching and horrific consequences. What ensues is a high-octane parade of blood, guts, twists and turns, mixing the American Spaghetti Western and drive-in horror with the hard-boiled sense of gallows humor Brereton`s NOCTURNALS are known for. You'll never leave your night-light off again.

From Oni Press:

Ain'T It Cool News
"...beautifully painted and exceedingly eerie. "

The Nocturnals are back in Pacific City to find their home steeped in dread. A new dark star has appeared in the night sky, and the walking dead are roaming the streets, looking for victims to recruit in their army of unholy flesh. It makes for a strange homecoming for the heroic Nocturnals, who have been wandering the world on separate quests. As the one-man demolition squad, Firelion, and the troubled and dangerous Starfish roll into town, they begin to free their neighborhood of the creeping death while searching for the evil that is causing corpses to rise. Could it have something to do with the ancient, underground cavern that Doc Horror has been exploring? Does the nefarious secret lie behind the massive door he'd found buried in the rocks below the surface? It's all-out terror and hardboiled action as the gang regroup for a mission that will unveil subterranean mysteries and a primordial legacy of inhuman darkness that's been stirring beneath the depths. With the precocious Halloween Girl, the deadly Gunwitch, the enigmatic Polychrome, and the devious Raccoon-our spooky pulp heroes are back together! Cloaked in shadow, the Nocturnals protect us in the dead of night, when no one else would dare.
