@LaserPuff wanted a werewolf comic and we found Wolf Moon! This is written by Cullen Bunn and I have found many of his horror comics to be fun. This is an Ultra book and is not for the kiddos, rated 17+.

Oh man, I’m so glad that I pushed for the Werewolf genre. I’m halfway through this series and I’m loving it! It has a good protagonist, a mysterious circumstance, a wildcard subplot. To warn the queasy it is very violent. I like Dillon and his obsession with the wolf and his internal conflict about stopping the wolf and the person afflicted with the curse.
The story is giving me some classic werewolf vibes. The art is gritty and the characters are really well written. I’m hooked.
I thought this was a solid read. The concept of the Werewolf curse being more of a disease that chooses hosts every full moon is very unique (and yes, it also vaguely reminds me of Stephen King’s “The Outsider”). This comic feels more like Action-Horror. Yes, there are scenes and panels that definitely have that suspense and tense atmosphere, but it is more about the hunt, which is something you could argue is a part of every Werewolf story.
Part of me wonders if this would have been better if it was structured more like an anthology. The main focus is on the new cast that experiences the Werewolf every full moon, new city, and characters with every issue. But you can still have a vague connection between each issue with a hunter/narrator that tracks down the creature. Regardless, this was still an enjoyable mini-series.
