“Wulf and Batsy chronicles the adventures of a big bad Werewolf named Wulf and a feisty little Vampiress named Batsy, as they wander the earth in search of a place to call home and companions to call friends. Such things are not easily found.”

A very nice first issue with a great build up and a cliffhanger ending leaving you wanting more and more and more.

Artwork: 4.0 out of 5
The werewolf images are flat out some of the best for a cartoonish style. I really picked up an Elvira Claypool style when looking at the renditions of Batsy. Overall the book fits well with the Viper family of comics and I would say it borders even on edge of Ape Entertainment’s style. Baugh even throws in some not so hidden characters that are nice to pay homage to what has come before. Great overall work.

Story: 3.9 out of 5
The story is a nice fun take on the two genre’s or Vampire and Werewolves. The communication between characters read very well and the story builds as it goes on. It all leads up nicely to a cliffhanger ending that makes you really want to get issue #2 in your hands and keep reading.

Dying Breath: 4.0 out of 5
I am glad I was able to pick up the series in full because I just know it’s all going to be a great read. The first issue explains what you need to know to be hooked on the story. The artwork is fantastic and they both merge together very nicely. This is one that is really worth checking out and it was just released in trade form. So what are you waiting for?
