Editorial Reviews


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

Now that Day V of 24 is in Action, getting these many "Inbetweenquels" (Sequels & Prequels and everything in between) may not be so crucial. But once the show ends this season, it may be the time to check out these comics out!

In 24: One Shot, It's Jack's first day at CTU, where he meets Tony, Nina, Jamey . . . the main gang of Day I. Oh yeah, he must also save a witness' life with one bullet left in the gun.

In 24: Stories, It's between Days II & III, and Jack is currently undercover with the Salazar Cartel. Think that's hard enough to begin with? Check out what Jack has to do keep his cover and save the hostages of a 24-storied hotel when it's taken over by Chechen Rebels!!

Finally, in 24: Midnight Sun, The Story is between Days II & III, and even more so, between 24: The Game (PS2) & 24 Stories. Jack has to battle some eco-terrorists from messing with the Oil-Preserves near Fairbanks, Alaska. It's mid-summer on this day . . . which means there's 24 hours of constant sun!

Overall, each pull their own weight, and I recommend each of them, though I must say 24: Stories was the best of the three. I should also remind you that I bought all three separately, and this is the three in a set. Get them all in one swoop, I guess . . .

For a fan, these are worthwhile reads, definitely breaking up that unbearable SEVEN Month Hiatus 24 usually takes between June to December. For a non-fan . . . I wouldn't know for sure: My advise would be to watch the series and THEN see if you're a big enough fan to read these pretty impressive "Inbetweenquels!"

That part was not mentioned anywhere on the page as far as I could have seen. Only in the comments can one find that out, and the other reviews also agreed that it was unexpected. Nice idea to preface the series though.

For all you duh-huh people out there just like me, this is a glorified comic book. I wanted to note this first. In the discription I first read it was noted as 3 short stories. Yes, they are short stories. In comic book format! When it arrived I wasn't sure I like it. After reading it carefully, oh say 10-12 times, I decided it was very informative and interesting. The first comic is, "One Shot". It helped to place Jack in the beginning of his career at CTU. The artwork wasn't that impressive to me. The second story is, "Midnight Sun" and here you get to know more about the Jack we all love. I found more personal details as to how he handels himself & what he has had to do to, sacrfice, to successfully stop terrorists. The artwork is definately coming along here. Characters are more defined and accurately drawn. The last of the three is entitled, "Stories". This is the BEST of the three! It takes you inside & expalins the Ramone Salazar story line. The artist Manny Clark should get some award for his renderings of Jack, Tony, Chloe, Michelle, & everyone else! It's just like watching the show frame by frame. I learned alot from this one & it helped plug up all the little holes in the Salazar story line for me. Over all I totally enjoyed this book, even though I was a bit leary of the format.
