Summer 2008 is a good time for werewolf comics and graphic novels! The latest one to drop is Strangeways: Murder Moon, written by Matt Maxwell and illustrated by Luis Guaragna. It’s a western, set shortly after the civil war. A plot summary from the Strangeways blog:
It’s 1868, and former army officer Seth Collins seeks to escape the horrors of the Civil War by traveling the frontier. Answering an urgent letter from his estranged sister, Collins finds himself under attack by a strange creature that is neither man nor wolf. When his friend and partner Webster is accused of being the beast, Collins must track down the real threat. But which will kill him first: the Wolf, or the secret that the sheriff of Silver Hand is trying to keep buried?
If you’re interested, you can meet the werewolf and check out the effectively grungy and dark art style in this free PDF preview of chapter one.
