Free Comic Book Day: Astounding Wolfman

I have always had a spot in my heart for were-wolves. I wish that they explored the werewolf character of Oz in Buffy the Vampire Slayer. I enjoy reading about the were-people in the Laurell K. Hamilton books. And I have read a series of books about a werewolf in ancient Rome.

On Free Comic Book Day picked up The Astounding Wolf-Man and it was one of the most enjoyable books I picked up that day. It is the first book in a new series and the first issue was totally free. It tells the story of a man who is attacked by a werewolf and becomes one himself. Basically issue #1 was an origin story and we learn that there is more to this ‘curse’ than meets the eye. I may pick this one up on my regular rotation.
