The Cover For Penny Arcade’s 9th Book, “Passion’s Howl”, is Making Me Feel Weird

A. Quinton — Jul. 19th 2012

This morning on Twitter, Penny Arcade’s Mike Krahulik (aka Gabe) posted the cover art for the ninth Penny Arcade book, “Passion’s Howl“. Here it is.

I’ve been delighted by every werewolf-related endeavour Penny Arcade has undertaken. This image is no different, despite the fact that it’s making me feel skittish and antsy in ways I can’t quite define. No word on a release date yet.

    Maybe because it’s just one of those things in life that, for some reason, just naturally feel a part of your soul? Happens for me on occasion, half the time it’s… were-lated (total pun!) to things like this also ;)

    I’m feeling weird… in the pants. Haha! <3 Smexy!

  • Lone Wolf

    I had Gabriel draw my character at Comic Con, really cool and loves werewolves!

  • Ryuu

    I think what works is that it’s a pretty fresh werewolf design, using elements of the classic wolf-man (face) and more modern elements like the muscular, fully furred body (with tattoo) and Gabe retaining his hair. I especially like the hair because it never makes sense when we so often see people turn into werewolves without their original hairstyles. That never makes sense to me.

    Who would have thought that Gabe would make such a lean and forest-wise, down-to-business lycanthrope? Hopefully the wolf will remain in his character like the Cardboard Tube Samurai!

    Too emotional for you? it’s just a picture man.
