Zenescope Entertainment has announced a new five issue mini-series by Denny Williams and Christian Beranek that promises a new origin story for the popular werewolf horror genre.
Deacon McKay, a cop from the NYPD, takes a job back in the place where he grew up. After a series of murders, he uncovers the dark past of Willow Creek and comes face to face with his own demons.
Willow Creek is an actual town in California, and Beranek was able to go there to snag reference photos for the series.
“It’s a very creepy place,” says Beranek, known for the amount of research he puts into a project. “I was able to take a ton of great pics and get a vibe for the town. There is a lot of mystery there, being it’s the self-proclaimed home of Bigfoot, and that is conveyed in the book.”
Art for the series will be done by Willow Creek co-creator Josh Medors.

Willow Creek #0 will debut in January, with issue #1 following a few weeks later.
