Night Wolf #4
Rodney Marcelli is coming to terms with who he is and what has just happened. He’s only a day removed from his high school prom and is in desperate need of truthful answers.
The fantasy genre is very crowded with stories ranging from magic to shapeshifters, to time travelers, and everything in between. For this reason, it can be tough to find that one story that stands out from the crowd, however, once-in-a-while you find that story that stands out and demands to be seen. Night Wolf is one of those stories.
The fourth installment of the Night Wolf series does not miss a beat. One of my favorite things about this series has been the adventurous storytelling of Robert Multari. Multari’s passion shines brilliantly and grabs the reader and refuses to let go. His storytelling and world-building is a welcomed breath of fresh air in a market where we tend to see character names sell the book instead of the creative team behind the titles. Lone Wolf comics has struck creative gold with Night Wolf and we can only hope we continue to see more of this awesome book.
One of the most important aspects that I hold near and dear is if a book can hold on to you from all creative angles that make up its DNA. The building blocks of Night Wolf #4 accomplish this task and do it with such nonapologetic enthusiasm. Getting to know Rodney Marcelli (the main protagonist) brings back memories of first diving into Dungeons & Dragons, the first time I read Cabal by Clive Barker or the first time I opened a Spawn comic. When a creative team can gel so cohesively and bring back such beloved memories, that not only makes for a special story but a special feeling between the reader and creators that is so special it cannot be replicated. Robert Multari, Carlos Herrera, and Gat Melvyn make a great team that makes great comics that you should be reading.
I always enjoy finding hidden gems in music, comics, and movies. Night Wolf has been one of those hidden gems. The art, the story, the colors are just awesome. It is definitely one of those books that you come across that you keep telling everyone you know about it and won’t leave them alone until they’ve read it.
