Issue Review
   March 9, 2016
Too much narration. Some of it very annoying. The story is fine, and pretty much holds together. Reveal at the end is kinda bananas but par for the course in this series. Nice to see the Topaz character return. She is well used here. Her influence on the werewolf makes him a more interesting character. 5/10

Issue Synopsis
Jack has a nightmare in which he is trapped and is being killed by silver stakes. Hearing news from Transylvania, Jack believes the dream was a message from Topaz and goes there to help her. He finds that she is being held by a group of gypsies and tracks them, where he fights them in order to save Topaz. Topaz helps him break the gypsy leaders insanity just before she dies, and reviles that she was Jack's grandmother.

  Kept falling asleep through the whole story.

  I thought this was one of the best WWBN comics in a while, but it would appear I am in the minority opinion here.
The villagers seemed to forget all about that werewolf, even when they walked up on a half naked guy wearing the same tatters of clothes that it was wearing.

  I didn't think this one was all that bad. I had started to wonder what happened to Topaz since it had been a number of issues since her last appearance. Seemed like she was checking out Jack's family roots; makes me think she's quite fond of the teen wolf!

2 stars. I think the villagers knew who and what Jack was, but their seeming ambivalence kind of brought the story down a little; they're willing to slay a group of gypsies but don't care about a werewolf?
