5-page preview, 4 covers & publication details for “The Howling: Revenge of the Werewolf Queen”

A. Quinton — May. 4th 2017

Space Goat Productions has shared publication details, cover art and five preview pages from the first issue of their upcoming comic series “The Howling: Revenge of the Werewolf Queen”.

The Howling: Revenge of the Werewolf Queen #1 picks up where the cult-classic 1981 film left off: Three weeks have passed since Chris Halloran revealed on national TV that werewolves walk among us. No one believed him. Now Marsha Quist has returned for revenge–and now there is no colony to hold back her blood lust. For fans of Evil Dead 2, The Walking Dead, and Silver Bullet.

When news broke late last year that Space Goat had secured the rights to produce a canonical comic series tied to the The Howling film franchise, I got good vibes about the project on the grounds that it had a great title, a talented writer, a killer cover, and a tacit acknowledgement that the story would be derived from one of the good Howling films.

Now that we’re getting close to the July publication date, preview pages and review copies are making the rounds, and I’m relieved that my good vibes were accurate. This looks hot as hell. Check out these five pages from this first issue, then keep scrolling for publication details and a look at the alternate covers.

    Is there another good ‘Howling’ movie besides the first one? Cuz I’ve seen them all, and I remember the first one being fantastic (and far better than the book that inspired it), but the rest ranged from ‘meh’ (parts 5 and 6) to ‘WTF?’ (2, 3 and 7), while parts 4 and 8 were somewhere in between those two unenviable rankings.
