The Astounding Wolf-Man No. 19

Published by Image Comics. Written by Robert Kirkman. Art by Jason Howard.

The Deal: Writer Robert Kirkman and artist Jason Howard drop another issue of The Astounding Wolf-Man — as the series inches closer to its conclusion in No. 25.

The Verdict: This was, by far, my least-favorite issue of what's been, up until now, a fun and fairly enjoyable comic book series. This month's edition fails mainly because the events found within just seem to come out of nowhere are wrap up way too nicely. As the payoff for months of cliffhangers and sub-plots, the comic just didn't come through. If anything, it came off like the creators were trying to clear the deck for the upcoming end of the Wolf-Man comic. Whatever the case, I didn't dig this issue at all.
