Howl of the Werewolf - Martin McKenna
[click for full version]

This atmospheric piece by Martin McKenna is actually a cover for the Fighting Fantasy book Howl Of The Werewolf. I know this because I have a copy on my shelf. McKenna’s created a really excellent werewolf here, and he’s taken some fairly cliche elements of werewolf art and made them work quite well. Nice fur and claws in particular! You can see more of McKenna’s art for Howl Of The Werewolf here, or visit his web site.

  • Awesome artwork. I’ve seen this book on Amazon and was thinking about getting it. I was just wondering what your opinion of the book was, if you don’t mind.

    It was interesting. I can’t attest to the actual gameplay, since I always cheat my way through those Fighting Fantasy books like a dirty, dirty cheater, but the writing was reasonably good, and the interior art was excellent. No matter what you do, within five pages you’ve been bitten by a werewolf, and the author does a good job of building up the tension as your imminent transformation approaches. I’d recommend it.
