Mike Fish at Fangoria has posted a review of the first two issues of Marvel’s recently revived Werewolf By Night, written by Duane Swierczynski and illustrated by Mico Suayan (who’s been mentioned here before). What does Mike think?
With so many werewolf books on the shelf, it would seem hard for Swierczynski to stand out. But he does, like a full moon on fire. Words were never so right for a werewolf.
The art is great for the most part from Mico Suayan, looking like a cross between David Finch and Bart Sears. His werewolf has a great face and eyes, looking very menacing, but also cross-referencing the classic Lon Chaney look with the AMERICAN WEREWOLF IN LONDON ripper.
He goes to give the series three and a half stars (skulls?) out of four. Sounds like one to follow! Issue three drops on March 4th, and issue four comes out April 1st (no foolies). Watch Werewolf Events for more release dates as they’re announced.
