The creative team behind the award-winning supernatural mystery web series "Ragged Isle" have collaborated with freelance artist Alysa Avery to create "Night Is Falling," a ten-issue adventure-horror series about a group of neighborhood kids who join forces to take on an ancient vampire in the summer of 1977.
Brother and sister Valerie and Joshua Haskell are moving from New York City to Jonah's Harbor, Maine, ostensibly because their dad has a new job in the town. But it's also a chance for a fresh start, as Valerie has been dogged by cruel rumors at their former school, and Joshua has been kicked out for fighting. In town, they soon meet star pitcher Jessie, her lovestruck pal Abe, Abe's twin brother Aaron (an Elvis fanatic), their nerdy friend Levi, and Abe and Aaron's little sister, Rita. Operating with a freedom only '70s kids enjoyed, our cast put together the clues to uncover the sinister conspiracy threatening their town. Their investigation leads them to an abandoned nineteenth-century battle fort, where their final confrontation will take place with an ancient bloodthirsty creature, and it’s minions.
"Night Is Falling" takes place in the days leading up to Elvis Presley’s death (on the eve of his scheduled concert in Portland, Maine), and the King's demise hits young Aaron especially hard, setting off the events that lead to our series' explosive climax.
This comic was created for fans of comics like "Sabrina," "Afterlife with Archie," "Monstress," "Lumberjanes," and "Motor Crush," and for people who grew up on movies like "Fright Night," "Lost Boys," "The Goonies," "Monster Squad," "Gremlins," "War Games," and any other '80s classic where it was up to the kids to save the world.
If you'd enjoy a comic with the cinematic pacing of an old-school horror film, atmospheric visuals, and starring a cast of characters you care about, we invite you to join our growing fanbase, climb in the coffin with us, and invest in the world of Night Is Falling.
