Today marks the in-store debut of the highly-anticipated modern werewolf epic FERALS, written by David Lapham (Stray Bullets, Deadpool Max) and illustrated by Gabriel Andrade (Lady Death). Lapham has been carving out a bloody niche for himself at Avatar Press with his work on three Crossed spin-off projects (Family Values, 3D, and Psychopath) and the Caligula miniseries, and the ongoing FERALS series promises to deliver a healthy dose of crime noir drama to go along with its big helpings of gore and sex appeal.
Lapham provided his insight into the series in a Bleeding Cool exclusive interview previously, as did Andrade . Their interviews hinted at a deep, rich mythology, the likes of which we've seen in other successful horror titles like The Walking Dead and 30 Days of Night. What begins as a mystery in a small town – as a police officer of questionable morals investigates a murder/mutilation – reveals an ancient, hidden culture of werewolves as far-reaching as it is hungry.
