When I made a list of horror comics that came out this week, I neglected to put Dead of Night: Werewolf by Night #1 on there. Thanks to BD member Big Bad Wolf for the heads up! Also if there are any horror comics that I miss or you want to be featured, let me know. Hit the jump for more about Werewolf by Night…
Dead of Night: Werewolf by Night is written by Duane Swierczynski and Artwork by Mico Suayan, published on the Marvel Max Imprint which usually for more adult audiences. The gore factor alone in this issue would warrant a ‘Mature Audiences Only’ stamp on the cover. This is an issue 1 of 4 in the miniseries and mostly lays back story groundwork for the upcoming issues. The issue follows Michael Shepard and how he copes with being a werewolf 2 days out of the month. If you’re familiar with Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde, the Incredible Hulk, or other Werewolf stories; you’re pretty much going to know what’s happening here. While the story does seem a little overdone, it is done well and the artwork definitely strengthens the issue overall giving it a cinematic tone. I would like to read another issue or two before giving this a full review, but I would say get this if you’re a wolf fan or bored, but maybe wait a couple issues and see how this goes if you’re not.
Keep those suggestions coming, feel free to PM ideas.
