It’s Friday and I want to cram something awesome in your face! Get ready for WOLFEN JUMP! “Now, what is Wolfen Jump?” you might ask as you brush its crumbs off your cheeks. Here, direct from their site, is all you need to know:
WOLFEN JUMP IS POWERFUL COMICS INFUSED WITH THE POWER OF WOLF
WOLFEN JUMP IS RALLYING YOUR FRIENDS & LOVED ONES WITH A GREAT HOWL
WOLFEN JUMP HAS MIGHTY JAWS AND FANGS
WOLFEN JUMP IS AN ANTHOLOGY IN THE MAKING FEATURING A MIGHTY COMICS WOLFPACK
If that didn’t clear things up, let me explain: it’s an anthology of short comics that all revolve around the theme “wolf”. There are already a lot of great entries, but I want to share with you two pages from the middle of my favourite, “Lyra Lycan” by Lauren Zukauskas. The setup should be familiar to anyone who’s seen Sailor Moon, Cardcaptor Sakura or any other “magical teen girl” manga or anime.
Lauren’s a cartoonist from Connecticut and you can see more of her work on Tumblr, Twitter and her kick-ass web comic Rachel & Penny, which is about the irresponsible rockstar problems of Rachel Amps and her long-suffering manager Penny (who seems to be me in lady format).
Wolfen Jump is still in production but you can see all of the completed entries on its web site. When it’s finished, it’ll be available as a free e-zine, and Rigged Books will be issuing a print copy for glasses-wearing traditionalists like Penny and I. Enjoy!
