Are you over the sexification of monsters? We've received countless letters from vampires, werewolves, mummies and more complaining about how the world has treated them like little more than sex objects for years now. "I tried to scare a group of women on All Hallow's Eve last year," a vampire, requesting to remain un-named to protect his identitiy, told us in an exclusive interview, "and they cheared as I revealed my fangs and threatened to bite them. I can't work like this, Twilight has ruined my afterlife." We turned to our own resident writer, Frank, to ask him what he thought of this fad, "FRANK NO UNDERSTAND. FRANK WANT TO BE SEXY."
Well, it may not matter to Frank, but BOOM! Studios is here to rescue the monster world, or at least Werewolves, with Curse, by Tim Daniel and Mike Moreci, with art from Riley Rossmo and Colin Lorimer. Debuting in January of 2014, Curse will be a four-issue mini-series described as Breaking Bad meets Supernatural.
Laney Griffith is a man who will do anything to save his son from leukemia, but the cost of treatment has broken him financially. When he pursues an elusive murderer in the wilderness of his small, rural community, in the hopes of securing a substantial bounty, Laney is confronted with something he never could have expected: a werewolf. The captive lycan, in human form, turns Laney’s life upside-down, forcing him to confront his haunted past and race against the clock—because the wolf will return, and Laney’s son’s condition continues to worsen. CURSE is a story of a family’s survival at all costs.
