Grimm Fairy Tales presents Werewolves: The Hunger #2 Review

In this tale of moon enhanced beasts, can our hero find the strength to face down true evil without losing his humanity?  Read on to find out.

The official description from Zenescope:

As a ferocious werewolf cleaves its way through the city, the time-lost monster hunter Roman must track it to his quarry… a young girl who has suffered a bite from the wolf. What he doesn’t know is that a secret government facility has taken Charlotte into custody, intent on finding out what makes her tick. Don’t miss the new landmark horror series from Zenescope and Mark L. Miller (Jungle Book)!

There may never be a situation in our lives where we’ll have to look a dying girl in the eye and lie to them about whether she’ll survive her encounter with a fury beast, but nonetheless the creative team finds a way to make the empathetic aspects of the narrative work.  In short: if you’re looking for a heartfelt action movie with some depth to boot than this series is made for you.

Mark L. Miller pens the script and the author does an absolutely solid job bringing about what can be readily described as the most essential part of this three act play.  The first release introduced us to the world but now we’re seeing the consequences of actions unlike anything we’ve had to deal with.  There were some stumbles along the way as poorly executed dialogue yielded some sluggish pacing that felt like a hindrance for the piece.

The art by Elmer V. Cantada is simplistic in design as he embraces some powerful perspectives to sell the visual aspect of this jaunt.  The use of sturdy but consistent lines creates a believable structure but also one that feels a bit flimsy when the action starts.  In short, like the beats it follows, there’s good and bad to be found here.

Grimm Fairy Tales presents Werewolves: The Hunger #2 is an engaging outing that serves as the penultimate issue of this franchise and the good news is that what’s found here is more than worth your time.  Recommended.
