The Werewolf of NYC is a comic-book created entirely in scratchboard art. The cult-hit-original-horror series is a must read for any horror enthusiast. Printed in classic newsprint, full-color.
Albert Shaw – an overweight werewolf secluded in a 1980’s Hell’s Kitchen, New York City is plagued in decades of self-doubt. Unwillingly, he gains his thirst for blood again with a desperate attempt for world-fame. Created by Edwin Vazquez, The Werewolf of NYC is a horror-thriller that rebels against the slick presentations of current comic book standards with nostalgic authenticity of the 1980’s.
“We need more “dangerous” people like [Edwin Vazquez] in comics these days. And, thankfully, his work doesn’t have to rely on a big gun and a bigger body count. This is the type of “image” comic that truly celebrates the image.” —whatchareading.com
“I’m both amused and creeped out by Edwin Vazquez’s Kickstarter campaign for The Werewolf of NYC, his 32-page comic (the first issue in a planned miniseries) about the aforementioned lycanthrope terrorizing the streets of Hell’s Kitchen.” —CBR.com
“Vazquez’s choice in material will force him to be even bolder in his experimentation than Robert Crumb and his fellow comix creators and I, for one, can’t wait to see what the result is.” —multiversitycomics.com
