Yes, the character mentioned is a nod to comic artist legend Basil Wolverton. I figure there must be a Basil in this comic... and he had better be somewolf important!

I thought it might have been a reference to Basil Rathbone, but he apparently NEVER appeared in any film with a werewolf, despite doing several great horror films.

Would have been a cool movie, that's for sure. Holmes vs. a Werewolf? . . . Nah, then it would turn out to be a fake. :). Rathbone not in his iconic role . . . Yes please.

Is "Burgermeister" (from the german Bürgermeister) a regular word for the mayor, or is this just so in Wolverton?

It is a regular word for mayor, although there are some differences or stipulations between the positions. But on the whole, it's generally accepted as a town leader, yes. I opted for it simply because of the alliteration. Those sorts of plays are ones I can't seem to resist.

If you mean commonly used in the U.S.A., no, not really. But it's not unknown. A very popular Xmas special for kids had a Burgermeister Meisterburger as the villain, voiced by Paul Frees, of Boris Badenov fame. (Rocky & Bullwinkle villain)

Ah, thank you so much for these infos!

No problem. Feel free to ask about any aspect of the comic. Also wanted to add: Another reason for choosing "Burgermeister" as his title - having it sound like 'the Old Country', as the 'wolves would like that.
