The first issue of the new 30 Days of Night mini-series hit stores last week and the reviews are coming in. Some good, some not so good. But it seems that those who are fans of the title like the new storyline.
We start with Mitch Montgomery over at Silverbullet Comics who refered to the story as "well structured" and the art "terrific overall". He even gave the book a 4 targets out of 5. Though not his normal cup of tea, he does say "If you enjoyed the 30 Days series, I'm sure you'll like this." His full review can be found here: http://www.silverbulletcomics.com/news/story.php?a=3519
We move over to Pop Syndicate where Rae Rae reviewed the issue with comments like: "The storyline is great" and "People who love horror and detective comics will love this." Read the full review here: http://www.popsyndicate.com/index.php/site/story/30_days_of_night_spreading_the_disease1/
I few keystrokes later and we find ourselves at Mania.com where Kurt Amacker who said very nice things like: "a compelling mystery reminiscent of the better moments in The X-Files" and "Spreading the Disease leaves no doubt that the series remains safe in Wickline’s capable hands". You can read Kurt's entire review at: http://www.mania.com/53209.html
And just to show I take the good with the bad... Comic Pants reviews all first issues of the week and Dave Farabee seemed to pull the short straw and read a book he had no interest in reading. The nicest thing he could find to say was: "it fits the franchise history". You can read his full review at: http://comicpants.com/?p=926
The Comic News Insider mentioned the book in thier latest podcast. They liked it but didn't love it. Seems they had a problem picking up the story but they did say if you're a 30 Days fan, pick it up.
