What if werewolves were actually living among us? What if they had been for hundreds of years? It’s a wild thought, isn’t it?
Wilder still, what if these clans of werewolves were actively policed by a government organization?
That’s exactly the intriguing question IDW Publishing is answering today with the release of BROOKLYN ANIMAL CONTROL, a darkly thrilling digital one-shot from writer J.T. Petty (Splinter Cell, Bloody Chester) and artist Stephen Thompson (Star Trek: New Frontier).
In BROOKLYN ANIMAL CONTROL’s world, werewolves have become deeply entrenched in modern America, operating in plain sight as productive members of society, from construction workers to occupants of the highest echelons of power. More often than not, the longstanding werewolf clans conduct themselves to maintain a peaceful productivity with the human population. When that peace is disrupted, however, the B.A.C. has to suit up and step in, and as one could imagine, sometimes that can be a messy job.
Focusing on the titular agency, BROOKLYN ANIMAL CONTROL delves into the world John Crean, a B.A.C. warhorse and expert in werewolf affairs. When a conspiracy erupts from within one of America’s oldest werewolf clans, the Kveldulf, it threatens to disrupt the balance forever. As blood spills and Crean attempts to get to the bottom of the conspiracy, there’s no telling how deep it goes or how many innocents from either side will be caught in the middle.
BROOKLYN ANIMAL CONTROL is on sale TODAY for a special, limited time price of 99¢ via the IDW Comics app, Comics by comiXology, the iBookstore, or online at read.idwpublishing.com!
