Barry Gifford, renowned for Wild At Heart and co-writing Lost Highway, describes NIGHT PEOPLE as a parable transcending noir. The gripping graphic adaptation follows the perverse romance of ex-convicts Big Betty Stalcup and Miss Cutie Early, exploring fanaticism and murder. Their quest for righteousness takes a gruesome turn with the kidnapping of Rollo Lamar, a pivotal moment set against the demise of civilization.

Praise for NIGHT PEOPLE by Barry Gifford:

  • “Gifford’s night people are pure American… Pure in their madness… [and] in their evil.” — NPR
  • “A lively and lunatic underworld of mobsters, motor-mouthed oddballs, profound innocents, and other desperadoes.” — VICE
  • “William Faulkner by way of B-movie film noir, porn paperbacks, and Sun Records rockabilly…” – Jonathan Lethem, author of Motherless Brooklyn and The Fortress of Solitude
  • “Unsettling… The kinds of people who always seem to show up at night because they carry their private night with them.” – Los Angeles Times
