Newsarama Encounters Werewolves for the 1st Time w/ TRACKER
With sharp teeth, inhuman strength and a savage bloodlust, those infected with lycanthropy -- the werewolves -- have long since sunk their teeth into popular culture.
But Top Cow and Heroes and Villains Entertainment are taking a new spin on the beast in the upcoming series Tracker, written by newcomer writer Jonathan Lincoln teaming up with artist Francis Tsai. When FBI agent Alex O'Rourke encounters a werewolf for the first time, it begins a long struggle not only to bring a monstrous killer to justice, but to fight the virus from taking over his own life.
In short, forget about the silver bullets and exposure to moonlight -- Lincoln and Tsai were kind enough to chat with Newsarama, about process, the story's goals and inspirations, and why Tracker isn't about ghouls and goblins, but about cops, robbers, and a whole lot of bite.
