24: Nightfall is a five-issue comic book miniseries, detailing the events of Operation Nightfall.
Summary[edit | edit source]
Two years before his winning of the California Primary, Senator David Palmer is waiting at the Hart Senate Office Building, expecting to hear from the President of the United States. Jack Bauer and his Special Ops team have parachuted into Kosovo under Palmer's orders to eliminate mass murderer Victor Drazen. But the future CTU agent is about to learn that whilst running a covert operation, he should rely on only a few people; and trust even fewer. Things heat up for Bauer and his team behind enemy lines in former Yugoslavia whilst the politics of Washington put all the elements of Operation Nightfall into jeopardy.

Background information and notes[edit | edit source]
- Operation Nightfall was previously described by Jack Bauer during his debrief in the novel 24: The House Special Subcommittee's Findings at CTU. The names of Jack's unit members and all the events are completely different, however, since that novel was written before Season 3 introduced the character of Stephen Saunders and his participation in the mission.
- The day begins at 6:00pm Eastern Time, midnight Central European Time.
- The first four issues cover four hours each during the events of Operation Nightfall, with Issue #5 covering eight hours, covering a total of 24 hours.
