Get A Double-Dose of Werewolves in Nix Comics Quarterly #3

A. Quinton — Sep. 4th 2011

The third issue of Nix Comics Quarterly came out on Friday, and I really do think you should check it out, especially if you’re a fan of

  • awesome independent comics
  • comics in which werewolves gleefully kill people
  • things that are Quarterly

This issue is loaded with good stuff, including two werewolf stories that would be right at home in an issue (or an episode) of Tales from the Crypt:

“Terror at the State Fair” by Nix owner / editor / writer Ken Eppstein and artist Bob Ray Starker will make you think very carefully about the consequences of fried Twinkies.

“Mrs. Peterson and the Wolf” is a nasty little gem by writer Rachel Deering (who’s also writing werewolves in Anathema) and artist Glen Ostrander (whose tribute to American Werewolf in London is my desktop right now). I love the werewolf design in this one, and the transformation is well-executed.

You can order the book on-line, and it’s also distributed nationally by Ubiquity Magazines Distribution. Your five bucks goes towards supporting a worthwhile independent comics initiative (for you philanthropists) and it gets you a hell of a lot of quality content. If you want to read the previous two issues for free, they’re available as annotated black & white PDFs. One of the two issues also has a werewolf story in it. I’ll leave it up to you to find it!

  • Thanks, Andrew! :)

    Ostrander’s AmWolf painting is one of the single best things I’ve ever seen. I am CERTAINLY getting this now.
