COMIC TITLE: Ghoul Scouts: I was A Tweenage Werewolf #1 (2018)
Mark Stegbauer and Jason Millet– Artists
March 7, 2018
Sometimes there are titles that I see that are going to be available the following NCBD (New Comic Book Day) that I’ll say that I wish I could start that. The only reason I don’t sometimes is because its already two or three issues deep by the time I notice the comic. That has always been the case for some reason with a lot of titles that come from Action Lab and a lot of their titles including the one I chose for today. The comic that I chose for today is Ghoul Scouts: I Was A Tweenage Werewolf #1 which was written by Steve Bryant (Ghoul Scouts: Night Of The Unliving Undead) and illustrated by Mark Stegbauer (Justice League Task Force) and Jason Millet (Garbage Pail Kids Comic-Book Puke-Tacular). In this comic, all of the kids are doing just fine after the events of the last comic book and now the Ghoul Scouts are getting ready for summer camp. The only problem is that there are reports of a werewolf on the loose and the Ghoul Scouts feel it’s their duty to get to the bottom of it. After a close encounter, the kids feel it could be a fellow camper, but who is it really?
This was definitely a fun comic to check out for sure, but it is directed more towards a teenage audience of course. I definitely want to start off by saying that I loved the overall presentation of the comic from the artwork to the story and I thought that it was presented pretty well. We get the hook in the beginning with the werewolf at the carnival to get us hooked into the story which is then followed by a little comedy as we set up who the characters are. We are looking at them for the first time since the events of the last comic so things have changed. Then just as the comic is coming to a close, we are presented with our first turning point or the cliffhanger as I like to put in the comic world that has glued to want to read the next issue. So as you can see, they did a really good job presenting it to us and I commend them for that. It’s the Losers Club meets The Midnight Society meets Goosebumps and I love all three of those things. I think it’s safe to say that they have my endorsement moving forward and I look forward to checking out more. Check out my grades below:
