Yes, these are actual folklore for becoming a werewolf.

So its a curse? I was going to ask if it was viral or a curse and kept forgetting.

Technically. There's got to be something in place in order for this craziness to work. These methods of becoming a werewolf wouldn't have sprung up naturally in the universe, so it's safe to assume some sort of magic/spell has been implemented. However, it's not a true curse in the sense of trying to punish/revenge upon someone. They're "general" curses that can affect anyone if the conditions are right. Also, werewolves who like being werewolves wouldn't consider it a curse at all. More will be made of curses and such as the comic goes on... thanks for being interested and for reading!

So, with 'seventh son,' is it really just 'seventh child,' or is it sex specific?
PeterVonBrown 5th Apr 2017, 6:52 AM edit delete reply
As the lore goes, the rule of thumb is sex specific. As with most werewolf related info, it will vary by storyteller, region and era. So you might have a seventh daughter becoming one somewhere, sure. Usually, though, girls are given another fate like becoming a witch or something. For the purposes of my comic, it's just the seventh son (with no girls in between, as per the more prevalent version of this method).

Your seventh child comment got me wondering... are there things other than werewolves in the world or no? And sorry if you answered this somewhere.

If you mean within the world of the comic, there are some other elements of the supernatural that will airse. I don't want to spoil too much, so I won't outright name what is coming up. However, I will say that vampires and zombies do not exist.

Well, it's already established that the "Dark Arts" (Black Magic) do exist, as per Gavin mentioning how HE became a werewolf on Page 25. However, to be honest, I'm downplaying "magic" in the comic. Magic is a tricky (pun noted) subject to deal with, and considering that all my novels have involved magic in one way or another, I've explored it quite a bit. The kinds of stories I'm telling in this comic aren't the sort that would require magic. Think of magic in this comic as working with dangerous chemicals in lab. Yes, one CAN screw around with them willy-nilly... but WHY? There's still going to be an air of magic in the comic, though. Just not in the more common "wizard/witch" variety. I hope you're not too disappointed.

Wow... I just got the "in your pack" line from page 13...
PeterVonBrown 8th Apr 2017, 5:49 AM edit delete reply
Heh. :) To be clear, when Kevin says "You're in a pack with THESE guys?" on Page 65, he doesn't mean what George had on Page 13. He's just saying "hanging around with". The 'wolves use PACK as a general term for any grouping or subset, which they understand via context.
