Funny Book Splatter 029: Eastin DeVerna & Ryan Davidson
This week my guests are Eastin DeVerna and Ryan Davidson, the writers of Howl, a werewolf comic with an amazing premise. The series is essentially a zombie apocalypse...but with werewolves. It follows Jack Lowe, the only human in a world where everyone turns into a werewolf during the full moon. Even his wife!
The comic is illustrated by Dan Buksa, who has delivered some of the best designs for these monsters I’ve seen in years. It’s real scary stuff that’s amplified by the fact that Jack is the only human around.
Howl began on Kickstarter and the first three issues have been released. The creators are planning on running another Kickstarter to finish the series in a graphic novel. You can order the first three issues in print or digital format through HowlComics.com. Digital copies can also be ordered on ComiXology.
A few quick reminders of other stuff going on. If you like me here, maybe you’ll dig my other non-horror, but still geeky podcast, Raging Nerdon. My co-host BJ Boothe and I have been going through the latest nerdy news and reviewing all the comic book movies out this summer. Check it out at RagingNerdon.com.
Also, if you like Funny Book Splatter, be a pal and leave me a positive review on iTunes. That kind of stuff helps the show by appeasing the robot ghost of Steve Jobs. It’s a little known fact that all podcasters have to make regular sacrifices to his techno alter.
