Fangoria Reviews “Werewolf By Night”

Mike Fish at Fangoria has posted a review of the first two issues of Marvel’s recently revived Werewolf By Night, written by Duane Swierczynski and illustrated by Mico Suayan (who’s been mentioned here before). What does Mike think?

With so many werewolf books on the shelf, it would seem hard for Swierczynski to stand out. But he does, like a full moon on fire. Words were never so right for a werewolf.

The art is great for the most part from Mico Suayan, looking like a cross between David Finch and Bart Sears. His werewolf has a great face and eyes, looking very menacing, but also cross-referencing the classic Lon Chaney look with the AMERICAN WEREWOLF IN LONDON ripper.

He goes to give the series three and a half stars (skulls?) out of four. Sounds like one to follow! Issue three drops on March 4th, and issue four comes out April 1st (no foolies). Watch Werewolf Events for more release dates as they’re announced.

Dead of Night Featuring Werewolf By Night

ShockTillYouDrop.com reports that Marvel‘s resurrected Dead of NIght miniseries will be taking a new 4-issue look at Werewolf By Night:

For 28 days of the month, Jack Russell leads a normal life. He’s got a beautiful wife and a baby on the way. He’s the picture of happiness. On day 29, however, he turns into an uncontrollable, bloodthirsty monster. But as the saying goes, the best-laid plans of wolves and men…

The first issue of Dead of Night Featuring Werewolf By Night hits comic shops everywhere January 7th 2009. It’s written by Duane Swierczynski and illustrated by Mico Suayan (who also created the cover image you see here). For more information, you might want to check out Duane’s blog; particularly this post, where he talks about his upcoming January releases. There’s also Mico’s DeviantArt page, which includes the pencils for the cover image (and an alternate version!) and a preliminary treatment for a werewolf design). Nice work, guys! Looking forward to picking this up in January.
