The Characters of Virgin Wolf

Virgin - The lone survivor of the slaughter of Roanoke. Virgin seeks to end the threat that caused the death of everyone she knew. Now with the instruction of Hania, a Native American who found her outside the town. For years she has trained to be able to see those who hurt her finished. Her search for those involved has brought her to France.

Hania - Was once chief of his tribe, but after a terrible mistake, that he tried to correct at Roanoke. He left his people and now protects the one person who survived his folly. To make amends he watches over Virgin tries to instruct her and help when she needs the calming influence. Hania is not just an instructor though and seeks vengeance for Roanoke too.

 The Crimson Mask - In the spirit of the Musketeers, this Frenchman seeks to bring justice to those who break the laws of his king and country. Noble to a fault, he seeks what is "right." Until he learns things are not always so simple to discern.

This book is the collection of the first 8 issues, plus a rarely seen in print prologue. The book totals 208 pages in full-color. Printed on a sturdy glossy paper it is available in both soft and hard bound. Below you can see some pages from the actual book.

 ...this is a bold, action-packed comic that has a surprisingly (less surprisingly when you know that Ball was the co-writer of the similarly complex OneNation, which I featured earlier this month) in-depth look into the politics of evil werewolves, as well. It’s a good read.                     - Brian Cronin CBR

                              
  

All in all, “Virgin Wolf” is a story waiting to be read that has a lot to offer. More than just a supernatural action comic, “Virgin Wolf” will leave you howling at the moon and hungry for the next volume. Complete with a strong plot and stronger characters. Alverne Ball and team bring to life the story of a kick-ass, dynamic, werewolf hunter and her prey. So, are you brave enough to face the Big, Bad Wolf? - Seido Wells

 This is what Alverne had to say about writing Virgin Wolf:

Creating Virgin Wolf has been like walking along a deserted road with no end: that's not to say that there isn't an end to the story, but the overall adventure of writing about Virgin and Hania and their world travels has been humbling and gratifying experience when it comes to storytelling.

Our printing for this project is going to be Kraken Printing. They do a great job working to make each job the best they can make it. No matter what the creators try to give them. Plus they are going to allow us the options of soft and hard cover books. 

Below are the reward tiers for Virgin Wolf.

Add-ons that will be put with each reward tier.

Risks and challenges

There are few risks involved with this project. All eight issues of Virgin Wolf and the prequel are ready to be printed. All that will be left to do is the thank you pages and wait for people to respond to the backer reports. We are using Kraken Printing again for this book, and they have a history of delivering above and beyond expectation. Now there may be delays, in printing. We know it has happened to other creators recently. As such we are making our target a reasonable November delivery. Thank you all for the support!
