Werewolves! Oh goodness gracious me! Werewolves are awesome! Rarrrrrrgggghhh. (Though looking through this comic, it seems some variation on “Awoooooo” is the most popular werewolf phrase.)
I really liked this little comics anthology which featured comics from a bunch of different people, all of which I enjoyed. They’re generally of the humorous variety, though there is a more melancholic one, and the final one is straight up action.

The comics themselves deal with turning into a werewolf (“Aaah. I’ve vomited all my human teeth!!”), being a werewolf, having sex with a werewolf, hiding behind a werewolf, and the ever popular fighting a werewolf.

Of the stories the strangest is probably the Snoopy crossover by José-Luis Olivares, my favourite joke is the one pager by Jon Chad, and my favourite artwork in the piece by Joshua Rosen (see below), though I am wondering who did the cover as it is rad. I did like all of the comics though, and if you like werewolves you should definitely find a copy.

Awwooooooooooo!



Who spilled my red wine?!

  1. Thanks for the write-up! Nick Patten drew the cover, and his current site is http://unreachablebeasts.blogspot.com/

    Actually, most of the Werewolf crew have new websites, anyone interested in those or in our two other volumes can check out http://werewolfanthology.com for all that info! Thanks!
