It's refreshing to come across a graphic novel which is different from most of the other fayre out there. The Wolf's Whistle is one of them. First in a line of a series of storybooks (overseen by the team that have brought you the Nobrow anthologies) which take a different perspective on our most loved fairytale characters.
This is the story of a wolf who wants to be a comic artist and a superhero. Finding common friends at art school, he goes on to pursue his dream, only to find out that fate can sometimes be cruel.
Bjorn Rune Lie's artwork evokes the illustrative style of the 1950's with its flat colours and printed look. It's a short story, and perhaps for the recommended price, a little expensive. But the quality of the art, for me, makes up for that. Nicely written in a children's story book style, if you like good design but with a different edge, then I'd recommend this.
