Wolfe's Bay

Rating: 3.5/5 – Simple story with some great characters

It was a toss-up on reviewing this as a digital or print comic, it’s available both ways, but it was available digitally first so we went with reviewing it as a digital comic.  If you visit the web-site listed above, you’ll see where you can get it either digitally or in print.

The Beast of Wolfe’s Bay is the story of a sleepy woods town that becomes plagued by mysterious disappearances. A struggling grad student is called in to investigate some mysterious evidence and ends up on a hunt for a Sasquatch. The best part of the book is the characters – they really have a sense of personality and the dialog is sharp and well-written. Most of them seem like genuinely real and likable people which helps the story quite a bit. The art’s done well, which adds a lot.  Where the book suffers is in rather slow pacing at times.

The story sets itself up as both a mystery and a human interest story of a struggling grad student. The characters are skeptical the whole time about whether the Sasquatch is real, but as a reader you’re never really given a particular sense of doubt or danger, which could have added something to the reading experience.  Ultimately it’s a simple story with some great characters.
