Issue Review
   December 10, 2015

This story has to contort probability quite a lot to fit into the tropes of the story it is a homage to. And it sometimes works.
While the main character is quite boring, it's interesting to see how new character Topaz affects him and his behaviour. Even if those effects, like the story details, strain credulity.

  Because it was still way better than Daredevil.

  Werewolf vs Dracula

Next up... Werewolf vs Floyd Mayweather.

  I'm willing to buy that the werewolf would obey on command from her, but to give him human emotions? Come on!

  Werewolf is worse than DD for me.

  Why doesn't Werewolf look up wich day there will be a full moon so he can avoid being at, for example, an airport?

  "and for the first time a werewolf cried..." I want to punch whoever wrote that, and all the people who made it possible for that line to end up in my hands, before my eyes, in the here and now right int the testicles. It will become my life mission, like Nazi hunters stalking old men in Latin America countries I will get them all

  Of course the werewolf cried! If you were a character in this insipid story you'd be crying too, wouldn't you?

It might've been more entertaining to put in Quasimodo from the Fantastic Four Annuals instead of this guy. As it stands, this story was pure filler and nothing more. Move along, nothing to see here.

1 star. @TheAmazingGatorMan: Actually, Werewolf vs. Mike Tyson. Let's see who gets to chew the other's ear off first.

  Was that pilot speaking English and the hunchback was speaking French? To each other? Is that what happened there? What, was there conveniently a translator hanging out in the cockpit just in case the plane was hijacked?

  I really enjoyed the art in this issue, but the story made absolutely no sense. This could have been a really great story if there was an actual plot of some kind.

  If your werewolf character has been werewolfin' for over a year and he's *still* getting surprised by the full moon, either he's an idiot or the author is.
