Cycle of the Werewolf was an instant graphic novel classic!

    I though that this little story was very well done I really enjoyed how the chapters were done in the months showing the full cycle of a werewolf. I think if you let your mind open on this book you will truly get the most out of it. A very good story to read and also had some great illustrations....

    And to think that it was only supposed to be a calendar with little snippets of a story written for each month. Talk about an author's characters taking over a story! Man oh man....If I remember correctly, King wrote most of this on a flight to somewhere.

    The chapters are succinct but they carry a big punch. The illustrations are terrific!

    Ayuh, that he is, sir, that he is. His Frankenstein illustrations are stunning, to say the least. He is a Master.

    ...when I think horror illustration I default to Bernie and Glenn Chadbourne...

    Nothing has happened to him, has it?

    No, he just stopped designing them.

    I did not read Cycle of the Werewolf, yet. :concern: And I thought that I had read everything.

    Well, that's good that nothing happened to him. I have the three different artists editions of The Colorado Kid and I have to say that Chadbourne's illustrations are my favorite! I feel like I'm there when I look at them. The details are equisite!

    WHAAAAAAAAAAAT??? Oh my goodness, if I were your neighbour I would walk over to your house right now and lend you my copy! I have a ridiculous amount of love for the book. I always wanted King to do another werewolf story.

  15. Ahhh so good and inspiring to see that we have some werewolf fans here. There's nothing like a good story about werewolves. Have anyone read 'The Wolfen' by Whitley Strieber. Also a great book. Haven't met many who have read this classic.

    Yes, I read it years ago and did a re-read not too long ago. It's decent, but I prefer The Hunger.

    I truly believe that American Werewolf in London is the greatest horror movie ever made and in the running as one of the greatest movies of all time....since we are talking werewolves. It's my personal favorite movie anyway.

    And since we are talking about this story in particular I have already guiltily admitted my love for Silver Bullet in the thread were most people were trashing it. I can't help it, I think it kicks ass.

    Well, AWIL is certainly my favourite werewolf film with a The Howling a close second, but my favourite all-time horror flick is The Exorcist.

    I really like Silver Bullet. As I said before, the only thing that really messed that up was the bad prosthetics for the wolf, but otherwise it had a lot of good things going for it I believe. It's one of the few properties I would love to see someone tackle again on film or a mini-series that would be closer to King's work. Get Rick Baker to do the make-up and I'd be a happy guy.

    I'll take poor prosthetics over mediocre CGI any day of the week.
