Bill Willingham continues his impossible run of prolific,
high-quality, highly varied stories based on the idea that all the
fables, myths and stories of the world are secretly true, and that they
all live together, hidden among the real, "mundy" world. The hardcover Werewolves of the Heartland
tells the back-story of Bibgy Wolf – this time as a crack Nazi-hunting
guerrilla in the dark forests of Germany. This past comes back to haunt
him when he discovers a midwestern town populated entirely by werewolves
that have been created by a beautiful, ruthless Nazi scientist who
isolated a serum from blood that Bigby left behind when he helped foil a
Nazi attempt to revive Frankenstein's monster to fight on their side.
I did the flats for this for Lee – so I've had a sneak peek at the art – it's fantastic. Who would have thought 18 months ago when I put a pre-order for this on Amazon that I would end up working on it!
