4.0 out of 5 stars Leader of the pack 1 Aug 2013
By Noel TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Wolves is a moody supernatural fantasy that reads like a graphic poem than a straight story. Set in a time when people lived in castles and used swords on a daily basis, we meet our nameless narrator, naked and desperate, stumbling around in the woods. He tells us his sad story of being sent to kill a monstrous wolf in the forest by a King whose wife he is having an affair with. Somehow the two are connected as our narrator descends into a hellishly dark place from which he may never emerge.

The story isn't as straightforward as The Mire as it jumps around a bit and Becky Cloonan keeps vital information unspoken. That said, it's by no means a tough story to follow and the ending has a quiet devastation all of its own. As with The Mire, the best part of this comic is Cloonan's incredible art. Her expressive use of black and white, the swirling figures blending into the impossibly romantic scenery and the perfect use of panel progression to tell the (albeit brief) story all make reading this a treat for the eyes.

But even more simply, it's gorgeous to look at. Wolves is a comic whose high quality of artwork you rarely see in comics as quite often artists are pushed to hit monthly deadlines. The benefit of Cloonan taking her time drawing this comic is this stunning artwork that I find myself looking at every moment I have some downtime. That scene with the werewolf...

Wolves is a wonderful comic that readers of Mike Mignola and Dark Horse comics will especially respond to. More please, Becky!

And a quick word to those reviewers here who're saying "Um, not sure if it's worth 38-49p" - do you guys know what a 24 page comic from Marvel and DC costs? Even digitally, it's a couple quid.

At this price, you really can't go wrong. Cloonan is a major talent and her love for the medium is obvious. The compositions in her panels and pages are superb, her use of pictorial space is very strong. Her story telling skills are fabulous.

3.0 out of 5 stars Decent but short 6 July 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The artwork here is very nice. Can see manga influences clearly. The story is just too short really for a one off, it is was part of a series could have going somewhere. Comics just Don't seem as suited to short stories as prose does, unless characters etc. Established already. But as say art good and story is decent, just too short to wow me I suppose.
