Rating: 4/5 – A werewolf story with a lot of humanity
Todd McCullough uses a 1st person narrative style mixed into this issue very effectively to get the reader inside the head of the main character, a werewolf, who is struggling with both his curse and the fact that vampires have taken an interest in the small town of Kingford. We get a lot of setup in this 1st issue, but it’s very well told so I didn’t mind as much that we didn’t get to any of the main action, that’s coming and I’m going to want to be there to see it unfold.
McCullough’s art style is a good match for the story being told. Reminiscent of, but not directly similar to, indie writer/artists like Craig Thompson (Blankets, Habibi) and Nate Powell (Any Empire, March) McCullough is an up-and-coming indie creator I’m going to be keeping my eye on. For $1 you get a PDF download of the 29 page story, which is a great deal. I urge you to give it a try if you think you’ll dig a character-driver supernatural story like this.
