...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.
First, we have thank Robert Jeffery and William Satterwhite for offering all of you a chance to get the digital version of their new series Stealth.

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!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
