From The Press Release
New York, NY— September 23, 2020 — The hour of the wolf is almost at hand! A new Werewolf by Night is on the prowl in an all-new series written by Taboo and Ben Jackendoff with art by Scot Eaton.
Set in a small town in Arizona, WEREWOLF BY NIGHT will tell the incredible tale of a young man named Jake dealing with the effects of a family curse while trying to protect his people from a mysterious corporation. As this wild adventure unfolds, Jake will learn the startling truth behind his abilities and go up against fan-favorite super hero, Red Wolf.
“I’m half-Hopi and half-Mexican, so we pulled a lot from my personal experience to implement that in our storytelling,” Taboo told Marvel Host Ryan Penagos. “The cool thing about this story is that although there’s a Native perspective to it, it’s not a Native story. This kid is dealing with becoming a werewolf and it’s inclusive to everyone and there’s bits and pieces for everyone to take away their own personal motivation.”
“[Scot Eaton] sees the vision, and Scot just applies it and takes it to the next level,” Taboo added when asked about his collaborator, superstar artist Scot Eaton.
Don’t miss the epic introduction of the new Werewolf by Night and the surprising mythology behind his history when the series kicks off next month! In the meantime, check out never before seen artwork from the captivating first issue in this exclusive video interview with Taboo and Ben Jackendoff!
