Two weeks until Comic-Con, the biggest annual event in the comics industry. We're pleased to present the second in COMIC-CON PITCH 2006, in which Comics2Film endeavors to connect indie comics creators with Hollywood producers.

Today we've got Dan Brereton, creator of one of C2F's favorites, the long-running 'Nocturnals'!

Q: Describe NOCTURNALS in two sentences or less.

NOCTURNALS by Dan Brereton

Dan Brereton (DB): A small coastal town is host to criminals laying low and creatures of the night, where Doc Horror, his witchy teen daughter and their monstrous crew fight the forces of evil by night.

Q: If you were to compare NOCTURNALS to a movie or TV show what would it be?

DB: NOCTURNALS has been described as "Sleepy Hollow meets X-men". Spooky super heroes with a pulp/crime edge.

Q: Why do you think NOCTURNALS would translate to film/TV/animation?

DB: Its ripe for an action franchise - the characters and setting are magnetic, it has a Halloween vibe, its monsters and guns and cool-looking characters like Gunwitch, the undead gunslinger.

Q: Why should movie folks seek you out at Comic-Con?

DB: I have more than one property- one of which as already been optioned for its second term by Universal ( The Psycho) and Nocturnals is the stuff!

Q: How can folks find you at Comic-Con (please provide booth number and additonal contact info)?

DB: BIGWOWART booth ( booth 4905) ask for Dan Brereton.
