Alabaster: Wolves #1 review


International Horror Guild Award-winning author Caitlín R. Kiernan brings one of her most enduring and popular creations to comics! Alabaster is based on Caitlín R. Kiernan’s fan-favorite Dancy Flammarion stories, a dark fantasy series centered around a female teenage protagonist of striking appearance and hidden, terrible depths. For nearly as long as she can remember, seventeen-year-old Dancy Flammarion has fought monsters, cutting a bloody swath through the demons and dark things of the world, aimed like a weapon by a merciless seraph, more taskmaster than guardian.

While this event is usually held in San Francisco each year, renovations required the convention to  procure a new location this year. While it is hard not the draw comparisons between the massive San Diego Comic Con that is put on by the same company, Comic-Con International, WonderCon deserves its accolades as a more modestly sized convention.
