COMIC BOOK REVIEW: RAVENOUS

So I'm all hyped for the upcoming Florida Super Con and I've decided to review some of the books I picked up last year. Local comic book publisher Creature Entertainment has put out Ravenous.

Ravenous isn't just a werewolf comic. It is a badass werewolf comic. The main character is chasing or being chased by something mysterious, turns out it's were-wolves. There's a vicious fight with a werewolf that runs from page 3 to page 8, that is intense and cool as our hero uses only a knife to repel the supernatural beast. Intrigue rises when the people of a road stop are caught in the midst of this werewolf attack. The comic has the feel of one of my favorite movies From Dusk Till Dawn. The art by Jose Varese works perfectly with the tone of the book. The art is the very essence of cool in the book as everyone looks good even the angry monstrous werewolves. The story by John Ulloa is pure simple fun. This comic lets you really appreciate the savagery and power of werewolves, while at the same time feeling realistic and grounded. The colors by Juan Fernandez are flawless as is the letter work by Julio Alvarez.  I really enjoyed this comic and can't wait to see where it goes from here.
