Before the "The X-Files," there was Carl Kolchak, TV’s first paranormal investigator (played with style and pinache by Darren McGavin), star of the beloved cult TV horror series, "Kochak: The Night Stalker." Moonstone Books has been publishing Kolchak comic books and graphic novels for the past several years. Kolchak the Night Stalker: Sound of Fear collects the sold out stories: “Eve of Terror” and “Lambs to the Slaughter.”
“Eve of Terror” is an adapted/added-to script that was left over from the TV show, but never filmed! Government conspiracies, unexplained deaths, secret scientific experiments, and a modern day miracle, all wrapped up in one “racing against the clock” tale!
“In “Lambs to the Slaughter”, Kolchak has to find a series of missing teenagers in the cesspool of downtown Hollywood. What does a wealthy industrialist and his genetic manipulation dreams of having a son have to do with it? And is there a mythical monster lying in wait for these kids, as well as for Kolchak? Against all spine-tingling odds, it’s up to Kolchak to find out, and survive long enough to let the truth be known!
Kolchak the Night Stalker: Sound of Fear should appeal to fans of such TV series as "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" and "Supernatural" (TV), and fans of DC Comics/Vertigo’s long-running comic book series, John Constantine: Hellblazer and its film adaptation, Constantine.
