We hope everything is sorted out and the special collector’s edition is a reality.



Review: ‘Werewolves: A Journal of Transformation’


By Bryan Dorr, 21 Apr. 2014 at 12:15 PT

Werewolves: Journal of Transformation coverOh, the tales one might find in one’s journal. And, what a story found in one journal belonging to a young woman named “Alice.”

“Werewolves: A Journal of Transformation” takes readers into the life of a high school girl named Alice Carr through her illustrated journal. A pack of wolves attacked and bit her and her brother, Mark. Mark now hangs out with some “creepy” friends. Alice, a vegetarian, now has midnight craving for raw steak. The two join the wolf pack, experience the prey hunting and surviving from being the hunted from the hunters, until Alice realizes the pack mentality becomes darker and more violent that comes with a heavy price. Will there be a cure to reverse the lycanthropy?

“Werewolves” is a thrilling and intense  first-person account and illustration about lycanthropy and werewolves. Writer Paul Jessup was brilliant to write “Werewolves” in a way that places readers into Alice’s shoes–and paws. The writing also focuses dominantly on the lore of lycanthropy and the werewolf pack mentality, which is why I like this story even more than other werewolf writings that focuses on angst, romance, and sexuality.

Graphical illustrations speak loudly for themselves. Allyson Haller’s illustrations depicts Alice’s observations in her journal. Some illustrations are tame and some illustrations depict gore.

“Werewolves” is one I recommend for it’s unique first-person perspective on lycanthropy. I know that it’s “written” by a high-school girl, but the best part about it is she really focuses on the “meat,” which is lycanthropy and werewolves lore. This book is widely available in digital, but some hard copies might still be around.

Rating: Four claws out of five.

What I See When How Movies Are Made

Computer-generated images (CGI) in movies are like high-fructose corn syrup in food; all artificial. Practical costumes and effects in movies are like cane sugar in food; quite natural.
