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!
