Shades of Night #1

This NIGHT spin-off comic is a continuity free series featuring
stories from FBI Agent Sabrina Voght’s past, present and future.  Each issue is designed to be a stand alone
issue featuring artists specifically chosen for artistic style to match the
story.  In this issue, Clayton Moore
provides the pencils as Voght investigates a zombie sighting in a small
southern town.  She finds more than she
expects between the gravestones and vampire-zombie-werewolf action ensues.
Time to dabble in the world of Night once again, but this time
in a spinoff.  Having previously spent
some time with the Ms. Voght and the supernatural, I was ready to see what
curious place we’d follow her to next.  I
wasn’t quite expecting this journey, but that made it all the more interesting.
In this new “solo” story, we find Sabrina in a quiet town not
quite prepared for one of her bizarre adventures.  Then again, most of us probably aren’t either
given the events to follow.  Namely, that
of a battle with zombies and werewolves. 
Unusual, I know, but oddly enough it’s rather fun to see.
Each issue had its artist individually picked out to compliment
the story, which is a cool idea.  So far,
I think this is working out well and I’m sure that will stay true.  The only thing I would have liked to see
continue was the color they eventually adopted, but that’s a minor thing.
Obviously enough with it being a standalone book, anyone can
check out Shades without any prior series knowledge.  If anything, these would be the perfect way
to dip your feet into the dark world the FBI agent lives in.  With various stories and a different artistic
take, these are sure to keep things fresh with each issue.
