It’s always great to talk with independent comics creators, particularly those who are adding fresh storytelling to the industry! This week, I talk with Justin Bartz, the writer and co-creator of an excellent book titled Project Shadow Breed. Both issue zero and number one are now available, and I enjoyed them both!

Press Release There’s no safe place to hide as the all-new supernatural Untitled Werewolf Thriller begins principal photography in and around Bucharest, Romania. Universal celebrates its storied history of creatures and horror with an exhilarating original adventure that embraces the popular cultural resurgence of the age-old werewolf myth.

The Howling is one of the more intense werewolf movies from the ’80s, and with the Twilight crazies still going crazy, it makes perfect sense to bring The Howling back as The Howling: Reborn, and turn it all Twilighty… but with less sparkly vampires, which is a plus.

vs. My Patience This past week finally saw the end of one of the most god-awful series DC has ever produced.Â Surprisingly, Iâ€™m not talking about Final Crisis or Batman RIP, rather the horrid horror/superhero mini-series Superman & Batman vs. Vampires & Werewolves.

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
