First Look at Sequel Comic Series ‘The Howling: Revenge of the Werewolf Queen’

Would you believe that there are currently eight installments in The Howling franchise? Yes, seven films followed in the wake of Joe Dante’s 1981 classic, most recently a pseudo reboot titled The Howling: Reborn. What’s next from the franchise? As we recently told you, Space Goat Productions scooped up the license, and they’ve got a board game and comic series on the way.

Penned by Mick Neilson, the four-issue comic book mini-series takes place in the immediate wake of Dante’s The Howling. Titled The Howling: Revenge of the Werewolf Queen, the story centers on Chris Halloran, the man who shot Karen White after she transformed into a werewolf on live television.

In Issue #1, hitting shelves on May 31:

Chris Halloran is having nightmares as he awaits trial for murder. Not in jail yet, Chris is conducting an investigation of his own: if he can prove the existence of werewolves, he might just have a chance at redemption—if only his witnesses would stop turning up dead.

Issue #2 arrives on June 28:

The web of secrecy surrounding the deaths of Chris Halloran’s colleagues continues to unfold, while much needed help is provided by an old friend.

While we wait, check out a sneak peek of Issue #1 below!

    So far the art looks good, better than what we had with the Fly comic…, how the hell they screwed with that one….

    Seems like a pretty logical place to go with the narrative…and yet, no one figured it out in seven sequels. So sad. Looks damn good, so far.

      It had an open ending where Marsha is still alive and probably others from the colony. They could’ve also borrowed some of the story of the 2nd book yet they went with something completely pointless, i do feel bad for Christopher Lee since i think he would’ve enjoyed the movie more if it was more based on werewolves than vampires.

    Seems stupid. They did have video playback during those days. It also steps on the ending and one of the best parts of that movie. The truth has been exposed. But now there’s deniability? So what was the point to the original ending then?

    • Grimphantom

      Actually the ending had many people doubting, some where saying it was special effects, a stunt to get ratings. Karen probably return back to her human form when she got killed and i believe the guys behind the TV station erased the evidence and don’t want any part of Chris and Karen’s werewolf situation, the cops would locked them as crazy.
