If you've dropped in for the first time, yes, this is a comic about the town of werewolves. Right now, however, we're following teenager Gavin, who lives outside of the town with his Grandparents. They don't know he's a werewolf. Neither does Archibald, the not-yet-teen boy with whom he's forced to have a playdate.

If you're new to the comic, yes, it is about a TOWN of werewolves and not just an abstract werewolf as in panel 3. Right now we're following Gavin (who is a werewolf) on his forced play date with Archibald. Gavin lives outside of town with his grandparents who don't know about his lycanthropy.

gavin is really, REALLY pushing it, and things are going to start pushing back if he doesn't ease up

also, i just found (and watched) this and i think you should too (if you haven't already, which is a very real possibility)...how many films on this list do you recognize? i recognized quite a few, and just as many i didn't (some for a very good reason) - i even got several new werewolf movies on my watch list out of it

As I mentioned, this seems to be going in the direction of "prove it" and Gavin may even resist until Archibald gets his temper up again. Whether he'll take Archibald to Wolverton is a different question. He only needs to prove there's at least one werewolf in the woods, after all.

Another possibility is somehow Gavin decides it's a good idea to show Archibald he's a 'wolf (or leading him into the woods transforms and shows himself). Of course, this will probably scare Archibald unless he realizes the 'wolf is Gavin somehow.

Either way, I fully expect at some point there'll be a 'promise not to tell', but Archibald seems unlikely to keep that sort of secret without getting something in return.

Nice link! I'll be watching and listening to it as soon as I have the time!

Gavin is a basically good kid, but he's also a teenager which means his brain is still in development. Though he can go to Wolverton, he can't live there yet and might not be able even when he turns 18 if I'm not mistaking what Peter said earlier.

He might not be bound to do stupid stuff, but he's been stuck with a kid he considers too young who seems to be of an opposite type to him.

This doesn't mean they won't eventually find something in common (often in this sort of situation they do), but it's going to be rough until that point.

Ah yes, the old: let's see how far I can push this. Next he'll probably be wanting to prove it's true.

Unrelated to the comic, but related to all things werewolfy, there's an interesting movie coming out.

i get the feeling from the look and the description that this may end up being another alpha and omega kind of thing...not that that is a bad thing for me - i actually LIKED A&O, but i am apparently one of the few hundred thousand that do

My guess is that it's supposed to represent the bark of the tree.

Once again I want to say thanks for talking about the comic amongst yourselves. It truly is a joy for me. I am of course not going to comment for or against your speculations. I will however say that Gavin knows better than to jeopardize the town. And yes, Indagare, you're correct - it's bark representation. Thanks for sharing the videos. The movie has some nice looking 'wolves, but it seems a little ridiculous. I also wanted to let you all know that the page I am currently working on contains an answer you've wanted for a long time now. ;)

I didn't want to be too "spoilery". But since you used one of my favorite expressions (Can you be more specific?) I'll say this much: It's made Talbot howl in anguish. And naturally I'm wondering what other answers you're waiting on. :)
