Yes, this is a comic about the town of werewolves. Gavin here confirms I'm telling the truth. He lives outside of Wolverton with his Grandparents who don't know he's a werewolf. We pick back up on his "playdate" with Archibald.

yeah, i'd scare the shit out of him too, but that isn't exactly helping werewolf reputation

i agree on both .
thought technically you could say that he is just stating facts, i mean there is at least one werewolf right now. ;)

yeah, but...the way these things usually go is he isn't going to stop with just that

Good thing werewolves exist, otherwise Gavin wouldn't have any leverage over Archibald.

oh...i just had a horrible thought - gavin isn't actually going to expose wolverton's existence to archibald, is he? one would hope not, but he's a teen, and teens are scientifically proven to be predisposed to doing monumentally stupid things

Even if he doesn't do that, he's already stated something that's not going to go over well. If Archibald is really as afraid as he seems, he's bound to tell his parents who are probably going to talk with Gavin's grandparents who will probably ground him for this.

If he's grounded through the full moon, things are going to get hairy.

I don't know why but Archibald looks like the kind of kid who would listen to the story act scared then wait to turn and scare Gavin not knowing he's a werewolf too. Also that shirt IS cool Archibald no buts about it!

I have to say it's wonderfully pleasing and gratifying to have you all speculating and commenting like this. I don't want to spoil anything either way so I'll neither confirm nor deny any of it. However in terms of not helping the werewolf reputation, LegendaryLycanthrope hit the nail on the head about him being a typical teenager. He's not thinking in terms of Wolvertonian 'rules', but then, he also doesn't live there. ;)

Out of curiosity, what would happen should Gavin need to move to Wolverton at his current age? Would he need to be adopted? Could he live on his own?

There seem to be only adults and (soon to be) five pups. There doesn't seem to be anyone in-between.

I can't say much without spoilers, but so as not to leave you in total limbo, it does cause a logistical dilemma, yes. For one thing, he's an ACTUAL youngster/teenager (most 'wolves are quite old beyond their years to say the least), so there's the question of whether or not he could live/behave/be trusted on his own. For another, there's something already seeded in the comic that will present a problem should he ever need/want to live there.

Prediction, Gavin pretends to lose him/leave him in the woods for dead... Then howls in the distance to scare him. Which is very much a bad idea, but something a teen wolf would do.

Also, Archibald's outfit reminds me of the Dutch Children's book character Alfie the Little Werewolf, is that meant to be foreshadowing of some sort?

I've heard of it but I'm not really familiar with it, so no. Archibald's outfit came about simply by wanting something "nerdy" or at least something that a boy his age presumably wouldn't be comfortable in (although HE is). He has hiking boots because he 'told me' he does. I had been a little surprised to see that he looks a bit like Milo from the cartoon series Milo Murphy's Law. But if it influenced me it had been subconsciously. I knew of the show [years] prior to creating Wolverton, yes, but I didn't actually start watching it until Archibald had already been designed.

Just had a peek. Not YEARS before Milo, but for a good year and a half at least, counting having heard about the show coming into production since I love "Weird AL" and Dan Povenmire & Jeff "Swampy" Marsh.
