Steve Niles is one of the writers responsible for reviving horror comics, and he was dubbed a emerging star by Fangoria Magazine. Clive Barker, Harlan Ellison, and Richard Matheson's books have all been adapted by him, notably Matheson's I Am Legend. With the IDW vampire comic 30 Days of Night, which was made into a film in 2007 and has spawned countless spin-off volumes, Niles revitalized the horror comics genre. Niles worked on the miniseries BATMAN: GOTHAM COUNTY LINE with Scott Hampton in 2006. The writer also collaborated with artist Justiniano on a miniseries titled THE CREEPER, which reinvented Steve Ditko's classic titular character.
