Alabaster Wolves #1

by lucstclair on April 16, 2012

Dancy Flammarion is a young lady who carries a heavy burden. (Mis) guided by an angel, she wanders the long hard road talking to a black bird & fighting a werewolf. 

 

Based on a character from the novels of Caitlin R. Kiernan. I found myself bored to tears by this first issue. The protagonist is some Buffy The Vampire Slayer clone who talks to birds who talk back and exchanges riddles with werewolves instead of slaying them right away. I suppose its only saving grace is the illustrations by Steve Lieber who gives the drawings a look of medievalism in a modern world. If you’re a fan of Kiernan’s books, then by all means enjoy yourself. I just can’t recommend it. From Dark Horse Comics.
