Role Playing Game: Nocturnals: A Midnight Companion is a sourcebook to integrate the characters with Mutants & Masterminds (Green Ronin Publishing, May 2004)

Publication History: The eponymous original limited series ran in 1995 and was published under Malibu Comics' Bravura imprint. This was followed by story that ran in Dark Horse Presents #125–127 (October–November, 1997) that was collected by Dark Horse Comics into a 48-page comic book as The Nocturnals: Witching Hour (May 1998). Moving to Oni Press the next outing was in a giant-sized one-shot "The Nocturnals: Troll Bridge" (October 2000). Still at Oni The Nocturnals: The Dark Forever was a three-issue mini-series that started in 2001 (July 2001 – February 2002). A spin-off mini-series from Oni Press called The Gunwitch: Outskirts of Doom (June–August, 2001). After leaving Oni Press, Image Comics later published The Nocturnals: Carnival of Beasts (July 2008), a prestige format 64-page comic book, published by Image Comics, containing three stories. "Nocturnals: Legend " was released by BigWowArt (October 2014), a hardcover coffee-table style art book , described as a 20-year " introspective".

Currently: "Nocturnals: The Sinister Path" is a new graphic novel in production (after being successfully crowd-funded in January 2015 via Kickstarter) with plans to release through BigWowArt in the near future.

I just read the first storyline for the series--have to say, it's pretty good. Might make a good animated series, with Ron Perlman voicing Doc Horror.

This series screams to be made into a TV series!
