Bonus points for Diana.

Yes, Talbot couldn't resist it - bright and cheery AND the legendary ship.

If werewolves are going to worship anyone - who aren't any of the major players - it'll be someone related to hunting and the moon.

Thusly, Diana.

Or Artemis, given the term Lycanthrope comes from Greek. ;-) Or, possibly, some neoPagan take on Hati Hróðvitnisson, the wolf that chases the moon in Norse.

Or if you are going in a voodoo direction, Marinette Of the Dry Arms is the protector of werewolves in the Voodoo religion, amoung other roles of hers, she is a spirit of rage, but also justice in her own way. And as far as the Greek gods go, there is also Apollo's association with wolves and Zeus had a wolf related aspect as well.

I was about to mention Apollo and Zeus Lykaios! Ōkami Amaterasu is another wolf goddess!

Hey Peter, two questions:

1) What does chocolate and vanilla have to do with the sports thing? Is it a way of saying different people have different tastes?

2) Are there wolfweres?

Yes, "That's why there's chocolate and vanilla" does mean that. My mother would say it all the time, and I don't believe she made it up.

Wolfweres? As in wolves who turn into men? No. Not in my 'world'. Sorry.

Thanks! I've never heard that before and it threw me for a loop.

Yes, wolves that turn into humans and that's cool. I've been reading another comic where one of the main characters is a wolfwere, so I got to wondering if it happened here. They do go on all fours at times, so I wasn't sure if someone born a 'wolf would technically count as that or not.

Those born as werewolves, such as Talbot and the pups (Eudora, Ricky, Izzy, Chip), are delivered as humans. At the next full moon, the baby will shift into a 'wolf. They'll do so each full moon, as per any other werewolf.

Those born into/under a curse or lasting spell, however, such as Charlie, the werewolfery does not kick in until puberty.

Not saying it's the same across the board, but that's how I chose to have it play out.

Ah, okay. Thanks! Like I said, I wasn't sure how this played out and there are so many different ways people do this ranging from "born human, changes later" to "mother cannot carry a baby to term due to shifting".

(Obviously the latter doesn't apply here, but I wasn't sure if a mom in 'wolf form would give birth to babies or puppies!)

Oh, I almost didn't have something for this week, but luckily Kigai came to the rescue!

And yes, I do question whether that is appropriate werewolf behavior.

Oscar seems to be a good wolf. Now I can't stop thinkong about that banana-chocolate soft ice they were selling here in Geneva. They stopped and been replaced by other ice-cream guys but the memory lives on.

Yes, I will attest to that fact - Oskar is a good wolf. Glad I brought sweet memories to you, Alikgator. I like your profile info. Thanks for thanking comic creators. Right back at you - so grateful you read and comment.

Whew. That certainly could've gone worse. I feel Talbot's pain, situations like that are awkward.
