It can be a very touchy subject when you ask a horror fan what the best werewolf movie truly is, An American Werewolf in London or The Howling. Well, Dark Universe love them both the same, so we can’t complain.
Today, we got news that Space Goat Productions will bring The Howling to comic book form, a miniseries consisting of four issues, which will be written by two-time New York Times best-selling author and former Blizzard Entertainment lead writer, Mick Neilson. Not only is the film getting its own comic book, but it will also be available as a board game!
Neilson is very excited to create this dream project:
“I can’t even tell you how excited I am to write The Howling comic book! I saw the movie when I was seventeen. It opened an entirely new window into werewolf mythology and left a lifelong impression that influences me to this day. If I could choose any license to work on, The Howling is right there at the top of the list. It still stands as my favorite all-time werewolf film. I’ve been obsessed with werewolves ever since the first time I saw it.”
The comic book mini-series will be released in the summer of 2017, titled The Howling: Revenge of the Werewolf Queen, and takes place directly after the horrific events of The Howling. There is no date confirmed for the board game at present, but you can expect an announcement very soon. Take a look at the comic book art down below.
