‘Wolf’ Offers Gritty Supernatural Noir

This is why we praise Image Comics. The publisher doesn’t just offer titles that cover a wide spectrum of interests — they make it affordable to jump on board.

Wolf V.1 collects the first four issues for just $9.99 – subsequent trades may be more expensive, but when broken down, they’re still a great bargain giving you one solid story in one place. From the description below, I’m intrigued – and Image volume 1s have gotten me into quite a few series I might not have tried otherwise.

From Image Comics:

Bestselling writer Ales Kot (ZERO, MATERIAL) and artist Matt Taylor team up the fantasy, crime-noir, WOLF, VOL. 1. This collects issues #1-4 into trade paperback and will be available in November.

WOLF incorporates the crime noir thrills and character development of True Detective with the mythical stakes of Neil Gaiman’s Sandman in this original fantasy, horror saga. Set in Los Angeles, California: Antoine Wolfe, a hard-boiled paranormal detective with a death wish, has to cope with sudden responsibility for an orphaned teenage girl who might be the key to the impending apocalypse. The road to hell and back begins.

WOLF, VOL. 1 (ISBN: 978-1-63215-502-3) hits comic book stores on November 11th and bookstores on Tuesday, November 24th, and will be available for $9.99.
