[Hairball]Today, IDW Publishing announced that writer Steve Niles, the creator of "Fused" and "30 Days of Night," will be unleashing a follow up to "Savage Membrane," starring the monster hunter

Cal McDonald, entitled "Hairball." Having initially been serialized

by Dark Horse Comics, this 32-page collection comes with an all-new cover by

interior artist Casey Jones (known for his work on "Spider-Girl" and "Birds

of Prey") and the story focuses on some very savage werewolves who have a

thirst for human beings!

"Imagine a marriage of Philip Marlowe and 'The X-Files.' 'Hairball' could be

their baby -- it's just plain scary," says Beau Smith, VP of Sales and

Marketing for IDW Publishing.

"I think Steve has the best concepts of anyone writing comics. As with '30

Days of Night,' I'm sure this book is going to draw the attention of lots of

folks in Hollywood," said Ted Adams, Publisher of IDW Publishing.

IDW will be releasing the collection in September 2002 and you can find more
