The graphic novel, 24: Nightfall, collects together the five issues of IDW Publishing s comic book prequel to the show s first season. Set two years before David Palmer s victory in the California presidential primary, this handsome trade-size paperback describes the covert mission of future CTU agent Bauer and his special forces team: to travel into the former Yugoslavia and take out the mass murderer Victor Drazen. As a small digital clock ticks away the hours, the dangerous operation begins to spiral out of control. The photo-realistic artwork and terse text tell a fast-paced story of action and intrigue with lots of visual firepower. - Joy Fleishhacker --School Library Journal
