When Scott Snyder and Tony S. Daniel’s began their Kickstarter for their Nocterra Collection’s Edition, they didn’t know how it would be received. Well the answer is beyond their expectations. They started this with the idea of giving fans something extra while they wait for their upcoming monthly series from Best Jackett Press beginning this winter. It has now done so well that they keep adding new goodies to the stash. Today it was announced that limited edition prints would be made available to backers from artists BossLogic, Jock, and Francis Manapul.
For their part, both Snyder and Daniel’s are pleased with these great artist contributions to their project.
“BossLogic is the talk of comics, especially with his recent art for DC Fandome and the New Mutants movie,” said artist Tony S. Daniel. “It’s a thrill to see his jaw dropping take on the world of NOCTERRA.”
“We’re pretty astounded by the fan reaction to the first two weeks of the campaign and wanted to add something for the fans,” said Scott Snyder. “I’ve been teasing a top secret collaboration with Francis Manapul for a while and that will be released through Best Jackett. And there’s a new Best Jackett book with Jock in addition to more Wytches stories coming up, so this is a fun way to bring two Best Jackett collaborators, and friends, into the Kickstarter campaign.”
In NOCTERRA, you can still feel the sun’s warmth – it must be there – but for some reason, light no longer reaches the earth. There’s only darkness. But this new darkness, there’s something strange about it, something terrifying. Because anything – or anyone – that stays in it too long starts to change…
Starting at 72 pages, NOCTERRA COLLECTOR’S EDITION is a one-of-a-kind reading experience, with Scott Snyder’s script displayed alongside Tony S. Daniel’s linework to provide a rare look at the process of making comics. NOCTERRA COLLECTOR’S EDITION will be released to backers ahead of Image Comics’ release of issue 1 this winter and will mark the first time that one of Snyder’s scripts has been published in its entirety.
The NOCTERRA takes place ten years after the world is plunged into an everlasting night that turns all living creatures into monstrous “shades.” Enter Valentina “Val” Riggs, a skilled “ferryman” who transports people and goods along deadly unlit roads with her heavily illuminated eighteen-wheeler. When an old man promising sanctuary offers Val a job to drive him and his granddaughter up through the Rocky Mountains, she takes it, hoping there might be some truth to his claim. What she finds in the end, though, is something much more horrifying than any shade…
