For the next few full moons, Caption Comics will be sharing teaser images for their upcoming comic series, Joe Dante Presents American She-Wolf. Featured in this post is July’s image by Orlando Arocena, which is more revealing (conceptually and literally) and more menacing than the one they shared on Independence Day.
I’ve been lucky enough to get a sneak peek at what the folks at Caption have in store for American She-Wolf, and I have used a lot of enthusiastic exclamation points in my email responses. These teaser images are a lot of fun, a little schlock-y, and great at building hype – eg., they’re very good at their job – but behind the scenes, there’s a lot of character work and excellent world-building happening. I’ve promised I won’t share any details, but I’ll go out on a limb to leave you with this little tidbit, which pertains to one of the deepest schisms in the werewolf fandom:
In the world of American She-Wolf, werewolves have tails.
