In The Midnight Sun, two women find themselves left alive in New York as the temperature rises to a dangerous height. Services breakdown, there’s no water – will they be able to survive? We’re featuring all the titles in The Twilight Zone series

The classic TV series has been given a brilliant makeover into graphic novel format. A perfect match of illustration and text, each hard-hitting story is a gripping and powerful read.


Twilight Zone: The Midnight Sun by Mark Kneece, Rod Serling

Earth has become almost uninhabitable when 24 hours of continuous sunlight causes the thermometer to creep towards 140 degrees. In New York City, Norma and her landlady, Mrs Bronson, are the last people in their building, the rest having moved north where it is cooler. Trying to keep each other company as electricity is rationed and food and water become even more scarce, survival seems impossible.

About the Author

Mark Kneece, Rod Serling

Mark Kneece co-wrote a story in Alien World in 1987 for Pacific Comics and discovered a talent for comics writing. He has written stories for Hellraiser (Marvel / Epic), Batman: Legends of the Dark Knight (DC Comics), The Spirit: New Adventures (Kitchen Sink Press) and Tarzan for the syndicated newspaper strip (United Media). He is the author of the Twilight Zone series, published by Bloomsbury in 2009.

Rod Serling was born in Syracuse, New York, the second of two sons of Esther (née Cooper) and Samuel Lawrence Serling. His brother, Robert J. Serling, later became a novelist. Serling was raised in Binghamton, New York, where he later graduated from Binghamton Central High School. He earned his B.A. in 1950 from Antioch College in Yellow Springs, Ohio. Though brought up in a Jewish family, Serling became a Unitarian Universalist. Serling's family had a summer home on Cayuga Lake, in New York's Finger Lakes region, which inspired the name "Cayuga Productions" for use on Twilight Zone productions.

The first episode of the Twilight Zone was shown in 1959.
