IDW Publishing has announced a new werewolf mini-series to be written and illustrated by 30 Days of Night Ben Templesmith.Â Â Â Welcome to Hoxford tells the tale of Raymond Delgado, an inmate at the Hoxford Correctional Facility and Mental Institution.Â Strange things are afoot when Dr. Jessica Ainley can’t get access to her patients and begins to dive deeper into the goings on at the institution.
â€œItâ€™s odd,â€ said Templesmith. â€œBut the whole reason this book exists is because my work has been banned from a few prisons. Iâ€™m told itâ€™s among the darkest work Iâ€™ve ever done, and I donâ€™t mean the amount of black ink Iâ€™ve been using.â€
Welcome to Hoxford arrives in August 2008.Â With this new crop of werewolf stories popping up, one wonders if they are the new zombie?
