TOP COW – TEEN WOLF LEAPS FROM MTV TO COMICS

TOP COW - TEEN WOLF LEAPS FROM MTV TO COMICS

Berkeley, CA – 19 September 2011 – Following the immediate success of MTV’s newest hit show Teen Wolf, Top Cow Productions and MTV Comics are presenting a three issue comics series based on the show that will hit store shelves and digital platforms soon. When the new comic book series was announced at Comic-Con International in San Diego, the fans of Teen Wolf swarmed Top Cow’s booth for the exclusive preview of the comic and stood in line for hours waiting to meet the cast and creators of their newest favorite teen horror drama.

This three issue miniseries will begin shipping in a week and, like the break out successful MTV Television series, will appeal to the fans of the original films as well as cultural icons such as the Twilight Saga and the Vampire Diaries. Written by David Tischman (True Blood, Bite Club) with art by Stephen Mooney (Angel) and covers by Joe Corroney (True Blood: Tainted Love), the series will act as both an introduction to new fans of Teen Wolf and augment the viewing experience of the hit MTV show.

“TEEN WOLF reimagines the worn-out werewolf genre, and turns it into a modern story of horror and hot love,” explained writer David Tischman. “The scripts are so smart, and I worked with [showrunner] Jeff Davis to keep the same scary horror we see each week on the show; the personal horror of Scott dealing with being a werewolf, and the predatory horror of the werewolf culture. But I also really wanted to focus on the relationship moments between Scott and Allison. In those scenes, I think everybody remembers what that first love was like — the scary, gut-wrenching “does she like me?” and “can I touch that?” moments we all have growing up. The book’s been a lot of fun to write, and I can’t wait to see what Jeff comes up with for Season 2.”

Scott McCall’s life is a living nightmare. Sure, he’s co-captain of the Beacon Hills High Lacrosse Team and his hot new girlfriend, Allison, adores him, but Scott was bitten by a werewolf. And every time he gets excited, the claws come out. And the hair. And the fangs. That might be okay, except Allison’s father leads a specially trained group of Hunters who want him dead. Scott’s managed to keep his secret safe, but what happens when he can’t reverse the process?

TEEN WOLF: BITE ME #1 (JUL110434), a full color comic will be on sale in stores on September 21 for $3.99, along with a limited photo variant cover at participating retailers.

I started a comic book a while back and here’s what some of it looks like.  I used pencil and photoshop.  Now after looking at the artwork tell me what you think of the style.  Why don’t more comic book creators simply use pencil?  I’m not saying inks and colors are a bad thing.  Comics are too rigid these days.  I walk into a book store and oh my god every comic is the same.  Where’s the variety?  Where’s the maple syrup and ham?  The apple cidder.  The books from far left field.  I go crazy trying to find the right books!!!

That being said… I still love comic books and I love making them.
