The film has remained a beloved staple of the werewolf sub-genre over the last three decades.
Penned by best-selling author and Blizzard Entertainment veteran, Micky Neilson, the comic series The Howling: Revenge of the Werewolf Queen will be a four-part mini-series and pick where the 1981 film left off. Given the fact six sequels followed, only time will tell where Neilson takes the story line as he is no stranger to the darker side of writing. With outings such as The Turning, as well as his work in the Warcraft series, expectations are high for horror comic fans. Art for the series will be supplied by Jason Johnson known for his work on Image’s Wetworks series and Zenescope’s Grimm Fairytales Presents: Godstorm.
