    “Oh my god, he’s been murdered and… HEEEEEEEEYYYY Bruno what’s up?”

  2. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    This cover oozes RAGE from its pores.

  3. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    ‘The werewolves are up front. The grape-flavoured werewolves are to the back’

    ‘Man’s best friend my ass *urrrrggh-gurgle-gasp*’

  9. JuanPaul Says:

    That old dude’s beard is completely unaffected by gravity. He must have been a wizard.

  10. Bibliomancer Says:

    @JuanPaul – That is some wizard-strength styling mousse on his beard.

  11. Tat Wood Says:

    You ent seen me, roit?

  12. MisterBob Says:

    If i was a seven foot werewolf with razor sharp teeth and claws,i would make damn sure to carry a dagger !

  13. Anna T. Says:

    The wolfman in the red shirt seems to be acting the drunken fratboy to the others’ hardened warriors. Which leads me to wonder: why’d they bring him?

    “OOH! D’you see that?”
    “Shut up, you imbecile!”

  14. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    Back left: eyes with no pupils, or has he already fallen asleep?

    I was going to ask if any of the wolves are ladies, but since none of them look to be exposing themselves I suppose none of them are.

  15. B. Chiclitz Says:

    @MisterBob—it’s a good thing he’s got those teeth and claws, because that is a ridiculous location for a scabbard, especially since everybody knows all werewolves are right-handed.

  16. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    @MisterBob: what if he were armed with…fresh fruit?

  17. A.R.Yngve Says:

    First they came for Santa Claus;
    But I said nothing, for am I not Santa Claus.
    Then they came for the Easter Bunny…

  18. A.R.Yngve Says:

    If this is too angry for you, try the CALM Series, with these mildly exciting titles:


  19. A.R.Yngve Says:

    Is that a trenchcoat-clad detective werewolf on the left…?

    The morning was colder than a politician’s smile when I arrived at the scene of the crime. I nodded to Police Commissioner Rage who was watching as they carried the corpse away.
    “Who’s the stiff, Rage?”
    “Some vagrant named Kris Kringle. Went around claiming he was Santa Claus. Well, now it seems Christmas has been cancelled for good.”
    “Any suspects?”
    “Nope. Why do you care? Another dead homeless person… nobody’s going to ask for an explanation.”
    But I had some questions. I stood watching the pool of blood, and saw that the dying Kris Kringle had written a message with his fingers. It read:
    Had Mrs. Kringle killed him?

  20. JuanPaul Says:

    @AnnaT Clearly he is the comic relief, which is probably much needed based on the gloomy looks on the rest of the wolfen faces.

  21. B. Chiclitz Says:

    It’s ok boys. He spilled the beans just before we croaked him. Lamb Chop is hiding right over there under that bush. Let’s go get dinner!!

  22. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:


    Night descended on the town like an idiot’s conscience. The streets were spotted with anonymous shapes in twos and threes, huddled together under the streetlights and howling with shallow laugher. I paid them no mind. My destination was in sight before me through the putrid fog:


    ‘You’re waisting your time, Rover,’ the Chief’s voice came schooning from across the street. Seven foot three-fifty, and he could still hide in an alleyway without the street rats twitching a whisker. We always said that Rage was better in the road than behind a desk.

    This time, Rage was barking up the wrong tree. It’s always what inside that counts.

    Bridge’s was purple on purple, a color scheme to saturate and sicken, make it that much quicker to get smashed on cold kerosene. The men were all well-to-do, known names about town who paid extra for extra..and that extra usually meant keeping quiet. The women, or at least the folk in dresses, laughed too loud and danced too wide, smoking Gaspar’s in long holders to keep those expensive repaired teeth from yellowing.

    ‘Drink, my good man?’

    ‘Kraftwerk…in a bottle,’ I added too quickly, then tipped the stooge serving 90%. ‘Where can I find me…Mary Christmas?’

    ‘Your name wouldn’t be Rover Goodboy, would it?’ The top to the bottle came off with a clean jerk. He poured a fine head on the beer, then settled the glass onto a paper napkin. I could see something written underneath the glass, something I wasn’t looking to see.

    But at that moment, the house lights went down and she wriggled out into the spotlight…

  23. A.R.Yngve Says:

    Good Show, Sir. Good show.

  24. L.B. Says:

    If Tommy Wiseau was a wolf. “I did not kill him. I did not… O hai guy over there!”

  25. THX 1138 Says:

    @24: You mean Tommy Wiseau isn’t a werewolf?

  26. Tom Noir Says:

    Actually, that explains so much.

  27. Hammy Says:

    Silver Crown? If the cover’s accurate, that’s got to be some uh-maaaaaaaaaazing USAian open wheel racing….

  28. GSS ex-noob Says:

    @Hammy: You KNOW the frat-boy wolf in the red shirt is all “Hold mah beeer!” as he gets into the open car for a few laps around the track.

  29. Bruce A Munro Says:

    @GSS ex-noob: and you know people extremely hard to kill except with silver bullets are going to be reckless drivers to start with.

  30. Hammy Says:


    The only thing I worry about is, drivers’ suits are usually not that hairy. Are they fire-resistant?

  31. Bruce A Munro Says:

    @Hammy: I really don’t know what werewolf lore has to say on that subject. But as a guess I’d say a werewolf probably isn’t good for much after thorough roasting. (Unless you have a _lot_ of steak sauce or catsup.)
