that's really cool, Matthew! the character is great and I love the facial expressions, my only crit would be the lettering... maybe it's just me, but I think it's kinda hard to read and looks very unpersonal.
are you planning on doing more like this one?

This was a quick one-off I did today at work (the coloring and lettering, that is). I drew the Wolf-man this weekend and then made up the dialogue this morning so I just typed it out in Photoshop. Yeah, it's not so great to look at and if I do more strips like this I'll stick to hand lettering for sure.

Thanks for the advice.

Funny. I don't mind the lettering, really. I think it gives it a vibe of being something out of dry, "official" media- like it's the tone of voice of the interviewer, or something- which rubs against the content in a good way.
Not sure if that makes sense. .

Great strip, you should do single page comic interviews with all the classic movie monsters. Ever seen Ed Wood's Orgy of the Dead? The Wolfman and the Mummy are great in it, they hang out for most the film watching girls get naked and whipped.

That's a fine movie. I love when Criswell says "It pleasures me!"

Check out the Something Weird DVD of KISS ME QUICK/HOUSE ON BARE MOUNTAIN for more nudie/monster madness.

As an alternative punchline i would have the Wolfman say in the last panel:-Please don't print that- anyway,it made me laugh, very funny wolfman faces!

Yeah thanks to tracker 3 I've got heaps of something weird flicks. Didn't you do a cover for one of their films recently? The batwoman porno or whatever that was? I've seen that one and it is fuckin nasty! Heheh, Also, in Orgy of the Dead when Criswell is making them poor gold on the stripper and he shouts "Moouuree Goouuaaalld!! hahahah. I love that movie.
