Werewolves on the Moon Versus Vampires from Dark Horse comics is a great comedy/horror comic.  It’s written by Dave Land with art and lettering by the Fillbach Brothers, and Dan Jackson on colors. Dave Land has been working on comics since the mid 90’s; he edited numerous titles for Dark Horse, including Star Wars, and Aliens titles. While I don’t know who the Fillbach brothers are this title appears to be their pet project.werewolves

I’m also not sure how the characters became werewolves; the three main wolves as it were are Ted, Jeff, and Stan. They are not your typical werewolves with all the growling, and biting, and dismembering. Ted, Jeff, and Stan somehow get the idea to catch a shuttle to the moon and while waiting for it to arrive they nibble on some passengers consequently turning them into werewolves too. While on the moon there is a vampire plot in the works, and a moon colony that now is overrun with werewolves and vampires which provides for some great werewolf and vampire fights in the comic. In general the interior art is decent as it has an almost Tank Girl feel to it. WWotMVV is definitely more of a comedy title than a horror one, with great lines like ” I swear you must’ve been bitten by a retarded werewolf.” This is a pretty good read and I can’t wait to find out what actually is going on in this title!

    Only three issues?! That is even better that fits right into my budget! Counts me in I have been converted!
