WEREWOLF BY NIGHT RETURNS IN APRIL

Horror has been making a splash in the Big Two publishers over the past year or so with comics like Venom, DCeased, Justice League Dark, and more. As announced on Comicbook.com, Marvel Comics has another title bringing the spooky and I can't wait to check it out. Werewolf by Night is coming back with a new series, co-written by Taboo from The Black Eyed Peas and Benjamin Jackendoff and illustrated by Scott Eaton. This new book will introduce a new Werewolf by Night by the name of Jake, who's dealing with a family curse while trying to protect his people in Arizona. This will also spin out of March's Outlawed one-shot.

A new Werewolf by Night is prowling the Southwest, but all is not as it seems! A young man, a family curse, and an unholy experiment prove a dangerous combination for a small town in Arizona. All young Jake wants is to protect his people, but who will protect him from the monster within? Taboo of the Black Eyed Peas and Benjamin Jackendoff team up with Scot Eaton to tell an epic tale of righteous fury and incredible transformation in the Mighty Marvel Manner that is not to be missed!

“We're going through a Native lens because of my Native American heritage,” Taboo told Comicbook.com. “I always liked storytelling from a native perspective. Although I was born in the city of Los Angeles, recently I've been really connected to the Indian country or to native communities to be able to be a service and help native youth, inspire them, especially when it comes to health and wellness, and arts and music. So we built our partnership knowing that when we create, we create through a native lens…”
 
“I think Werewolf by Night is such an interesting character, a cool character. His mythology is really dope, and it was such an exciting opportunity to be able to revamp a new mythology and tie it into Native American storytelling,” Jackendoff added. “That's really what got us excited because they were like, ‘All right, cool. We can take the Werewolf by Night brand and stay true to the genre of it all, the creatures, the monsters, the big stuff, all that, but tie it into Native American storytelling, into a Native American background and palette, but still make it a fun adventure story about a kid.’"

Werewolf by Night #1 is set for release in April 2020.
