Arrrghhhh!!! Where do I start?Huh?

Okay this isn't going to be a full on review, but more of a "Huh? Wha..."

As a young lad I enjoyed my share of monster/horror comics and one of my favourites was 'Werewolf by Night'. The story of Jacob 'Jack' Russell and the curse he had to bear as a werewolf. Now since the cancellation of his series, the character has appeared very sporadically over the years. So I was very excited to hear that he would be featured in an upcoming 'Dead of Night' mini-series from Marvel MAX written by Duane Swierczynski. "Awesome" methinks because 'MAX' allows them to do adult content.

So I read issue #1 and it was very promising. It's a reboot of the character but with an ample nod to the original and the human and lyncanthrope characters haven't changed much. The art by Mico Suayan is stunning.

Then I read issue #2. Now I'm as happy as the next guy to have some narrative explanation to help set-up the pace of the book, BUT....the werewolf doesn't appear once. That's the whole friggin' reason I'm buying this series. I have a question and that is how do editors accept these proposals? I can see it now. "I wanna reboot WbN and the story won't have the werewolf in it much"

Say wha....huh???
