About

The Tales of the Wolfman series is a retelling of the Red Riding Hood story that poses the question, what if Red met the Wolf, fell in love and married him?  But in this case, the Wolf is a Wolfman. In this all-ages series, writer David Gruba and artist Rene Castellano play with the possibilities of Wolf and Red's uncommon pairing by blending Universal Monsters with Fairy Tale Classics. The series, so far, consists of Bride of the Wolfman, House of the Wolfman, Feast of the Wolfman and Time of the Wolfman.

Tales of the Wolfman anthology is a 48-page collection of comics and art by various creators we have met over the years. It is a celebration of the series and a way to introduce new readers to Red, Wolf and their monster and fairy tale friends.  The book will be in black and white with a color cover, just like the other books in the series.

This anthology will feature the previously published mini-comics, Feast of the Wolfman and Time of the Wolfman, along with a new mini-comic by series creators David Gruba and Rene Castellano.

It will also feature the works of talented creators and artists Justin Castaneda (Heart, Wonder Care), Angel Onofre (The Thing that Came from Space or Something), Ali Cantarella (The Hasty Pastry), Yusef Abonamah, Gabriel Bautista (Jupiter, Albert the Alien), Andy Korty (The Manor), Jeff Couturier (Horde of Neurons, Simian Grocery Science), Brian Babendererde (Soul Chaser Betty), Manuel Preitano (Distant, Wonderland), Sara Mundt and Wil Brendel (The Redeemers). The front cover will be by Rene Castellano with a back cover by animators, Catherine and Sarah Satrun.

We are using Kickstarter so that the book can be professionally printed. We want to provide the quality comics our readers deserve. Also, we will be using some of the funds to pay for the talented people who are participating in this book.

We have a variety of rewards to appeal to everyone - postcards, original comic pages, cardBORED sketch cards by Justin Castaneda, a guest appearance in one of the comics, and a variant cover by Jay Fosgitt (Bodie Troll).

STRETCH GOAL: $6,000 - We will do an offset print run of Bride of the Wolfman and House of the Wolfman, which have been previously done print-on-demand, and these issues will be sent with the rewards that include them.

We hope you like what you see and will donate to our project.  Thank you for your interest.

Risks and challenges

The biggest challenge has been the coordination of all the different talented people and their artistic contributions. We think our timetable is modest, but even after all comics and art are complete, the books will have to be formatted and printed. We are striving to meet deadlines and stay ahead of any unexpected obstacles to avoid any delays.
