Dark Horse, Hammer pact for graphic novels

First collaboration inspired by 'Let Me In'

Dark Horse Comics and Exclusive Media Group’s Hammer Films have formed a partnership for a series of original graphic novels and comic books.

The companies, in an announcement Thursday, said their first collaboration would be inspired by Hammer’s upcoming thriller “Let Me In.” That pic’s a remake of Swedish film “Let the Right One In” and written and directed by Matt Reeves (“Cloverfield”).

Storyline of the graphic novel is being kept under wraps. Dark Horse and writer Marc Andreyko (“Manhunter”) are working with Hammer on the novel, which will hit stores in conjunction with the pic’s theatrical release by Overture Films in October.

“Let Me In” centers on an alienated 12-year old boy, portrayed by Kodi Smit-McPhee, who’s bullied by his classmates and neglected by his divorcing parents. Chloe Moretz (“Kick-Ass”) portrays his neighbor and only friend.
