-Twilight fans, the scourge of many a SDCC attendee, are already out in force.
Sparkles For Blood
In a moment of
suicidal impulse pure genius, the marketing team for 30 Days of Night will be giving out free copies of this vampire horror novel to anyone who brings their Stephanie Meyer’s “Twilight” book to exchange.
According to an IDW press release,
“Recently, vampires in pop culture have started to swing back to the romanticized vamps of other literature and films before 30 Days of Night,” said IDW chief creative officer, Chris Ryall. “In some cases, they’re even being treated more as chaste immortal teenagers than as the murderous creatures that they are. ‘Sparkles for Blood’ will remind everyone that vampires are creatures of the night, not of the twilight.”
Be sure to look for their SDCC team’s mangled corpses at the IDW Publishing booth.
