The essential collection of Dan Brereton's groundbreaking Nocturnals graphic novels and stories continues in this second hardcover volume, presenting over 250 pages of material we couldn't fit into Volume 1! Doc Horror's inhuman crew of avengers, including his spirited daughter, Evening, and her pumpkin full of haunted toys, tackle creatures hiding in the roughest hidden towns, the depths of the Earth, even the bottom of the sea. The nighttime world is teeming with dangers the sleeping populace is dimly aware of and only the Nocturnals are equipped to fight. This handsome, must-have volume — for newcomers and completists alike — includes two mini-series: The Dark Forever, with story and art by Dan Brereton, and Gunwitch: Outskirts of Doom, with story by Brereton with art by Ted Naifeh (Courtney Crumrin, Death Jr.), as well as the Halloween special Troll Bridge, and the stories Spectres and Beasts. Extras include an afterword by creator Dan Brereton with Nocturnals insights and inspirations.
