The lil' vampire of "Let Me In" is getting a comic book prequelS

As part of their Comic-Con roll out, Dark Horse Comics has given us the heads up that they'll be publishing Let Me In: Crossroads, a four-issue prequel to the upcoming child vampire flick from Cloverfield director Matt Reeves.

Here's the series' description from Dark Horse Comics:

Being forced to spend eternity as a vampire-trapped in the mind and body of a child, with slaughter the only recourse for survival-is torture enough. But when Abby finds herself faced with a ruthless real-estate tycoon willing to do anything to get at the property she and her caretaker call home, far more monstrous torments await. In a small community torn apart by vicious men who are consumed by greed, wrath, and envy, she will learn which deadly sin is truly deadliest.

Dark Horse Comics and Exclusive's legendary Hammer Films team up to take you even deeper into a tragic world of sophisticated horror with Let Me In: Crossroads, a chilling prequel to the highly anticipated film Let Me In. Written by Marc Andreyko (Manhunter, Predators), with art by Patric Reynolds (Abe Sapien: The Haunted Boy, Serenity: Float Out) and covers by Sean Phillips (Sleeper, Criminal, Incognito).

This four-issue miniseries will have specially enhanced variant covers for each issue.
