Ever since Michael J. Fox rode the roof of a van down the main strip of the small American town, people have been fascinated by WEREWOLVES. Continuing with our Halloween coverage throughout the month of October, we present to you five webcomics who tackle the subject of our lycanthropic friends.
If you’re new to this, here’s the scoop: Each Wednesday we will showcase five indie web comics. Each will be categorized and will be judged by ART, STORY and APPEAL. This will give you an opportunity to support indie artists and the amazing work they do.
This weeks comics will explore WEREWOLVES. Without further ado, let’s GO!:
Story & Art: Samantha Whitten and Stacey Pefferkorn
About: Meela is a young, orphaned lupian (a race of people with wolf-like features) who is struggling to survive on her own. A chance encounter on less than pleasant terms teams her up with Feral, another lupian who happens to be a mute as well as one of the best mercenaries in the land, and who is not quite so welcoming of her forced company as she would like to believe. Fun, danger and plenty of humorous situations follow the two on their wayward adventures, however the seemingly peaceful world they reside in is not quite the paradise that its reputation makes it out to be. When a taboo topic and a dark secret collide, it may unravel their already tattered lives and force each of them to face the reality of the truth, requiring each to make decisions that could alter their lives forever.
Comic: Lucky Dawg
Story: Adam J. Monetta
Art: Pow Rodrix, Guillermo Ucha
About: At anytime, Larry Wulff transforms into the vicious werewolf known as Lucky Dawg. While Larry thinks Lucky is a ruining his life, Lucky is really a force of good. Lucky does, however, have a major attitude problem. These are their adventures.
Comic: Alpha Luna
Story & Art: Leonardo Vidal
About: Alpha Luna it’s the story of Luna, a 19-year-old girl still in her last year of school, a bad temper tomboy for many that happens to be – for her own surprise – … well, a werewolf. During her time of discovery her only friend Collie, a nerdy kind of girl, will get along to her issues and lastly Fang, a werewolf guy who looks for Luna in order to become the new Alpha of a lost clan of Lycanthropes, of which Luna is descendant.
Comic: Paradigm Shift
Story & Art: Dirk I. Tiede
About: Kate McAllister may be one of the best detectives in Chicago, but she’s in for some big changes.
Modern police thriller collides with classic werewolf tale when she and her partner are kicked off a juicy gun-running case to investigate a series of bizarre animal maulings. But as she begins to develop strange symptoms and powerful, frightening abilities, Kate realizes she may know this beast better than she could possibly dream.
Now, her nightmares have invaded her waking life, and there’s more than just her job on the line — her humanity itself is at stake!
