Hollywoodnews.com: So cool. Dark Horse Comics has created an exclusive digital comic to serve as a prequel to the upcoming horror-thriller “The Thing,” which will be in theaters on Oct. 14.
The first issue in the three-part series went up yesterday, Sept. 21, and is available for free online at www.digital.darkhorse.com and via the free Dark Horse Comics mobile app (http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/id415378623).
Part two is expected on Sept. 28, with the series concluding on Oct. 5.
“The Thing: The Northman Nightmare” tells, according to a release, the “origin story of pioneering Norsemen who discover a shape-shifting creature that is hiding in a desolate village with few human survivors.”
The current “Thing” takes a fresh approach to a story that has been told before by John Carpenter (in 1982) and Howard Hawks (in 1951). The remake stars Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Joel Edgerton, Eric Christian Olsen and Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje. For more details on the film, visiti www.thingmovie.net.
