Guillermo del Toro’s “The Strain” is about to infect a small screen near you. FX ordered a pilot based on del Toro and Chuck Hogan’s novel and comic book series just last week, with former “Lost” showrunner Carlton Cuse attached to oversee the fictional vampire epidemic.
While we wait for the show to spring to life, there’s no time like now to catch up on the “Strain” comics from Dark Horse and be fully prepared for FX’s eventual blood-letting. In fact, we’ve got your first exclusive look at three covers for the upcoming “Strain” volume one trade paperback and issues #10 and #11. Check them out below!
Volume 1 trade paperback, in stores November 14, 2012
“The Strain” #10, in stores January 9, 2013
“The Strain” #11, in stores February 13, 2013
All three covers were illustrated by E.M. Gist, the cover artist that was hand-picked by Guillermo del Toro. David Lapham writes and Mike Huddleston illustrates based on the story by del Toro and Chuck Hogan.
