What could unite Communion's Whitley Strieber, the writer of A Nightmare on Elm Street Part 5 and post-X-Files alien abduction conspiracies? That would be The Nye Incidents, an upcoming comic book based upon an unmade screenplay sequel to the book and movie that made Strieber's name. We've got more about the project, and exclusive art, under the jump.
Any project that advertises itself with the line "The story Whitley Streiber was too terrified to tell himself" is going to be a winner, if only because who wouldn't want to read a story so scary that it has to be written while someone holds your literary hand? The graphic novel, adapted from Streiber's unproduced screenplay by Nightmare on Elm Street veteran and sci-fi novelist Craig Spector, is apparently based on Streiber's real life investigations into alien abductees who return to Earth mutilated and under mysterious circumstances. Are aliens going on surgical joyrides with human test subjects, or is there something even more sinister going on? With the book due in April from publisher Devils Due Publishing, here's an advance look at what you can expect.
