Oh my fucking god.
This entire thing was just a big bag of rambling nonsense.
This is actual dialogue...

Nikki's Mom: Where are the girls? Are they down by the water?
Nikki's Dad: Probably ...
Nikki's Mom: They said they were going to play ping pong earlier.
Nikki's Dad: Yeah ...
Nikki's Mom: But now ...
Nikki's Dad: Yes, yes.

I picked this up at the library since I'm a sucker for almost everything werewolf and thought the art on the cover looked neat. It was a whim, really. I'd never heard of it before, but I liked the publisher. Image comes out with some interesting stuff and I've been trying to branch out a little. So I grabbed it, and ended up going from cover to cover in a bit under an hour since it's a slim read... Well.

I'm still not entirely certain what I read?

This was so bad on so many levels. Bad art,and horrible story. The characters were not even close to likeable and super annoying.

Some very cool artwork, but the storyline is rather difficult to follow. There seems to be quite a bit of "dream sequence going on, but it's never all that clear if what is happening is a dream, or reality. Kind of hard to follow because of that. Still, the art is really pretty. ...more

Coming of age story cloaked in a werewolf story.
Jessica Lewenda
I don't know what I just read. Nothing in this comic makes sense. It jumps from scene to scene without warning, and has just an overall bad structure.

And the art is just awful.
Surreal is right, the art is very linear and geometric, but the story often dips into memories or nightmares, waking dreams, dissociation, it's very difficult to follow around in certain points [especially the dream sequences].

I understand, for the most part what's going on, girl is turning into a werewolf, doesn't understand why, or at least her suspicions as to why could be totally wrong, and she is enlisting her new vampire friend in helping her. What confuses me is the place they're living a
Alex Sarll
A high school werewolf story, done in a distorted, vaguely expressionist art style that made me think more of Weimar Berlin than the Midwest. Which in itself would potentially be an interesting twist, but then the monsters don't function as one would normally expect, and the people don't talk like people ever have, and worst of all the wolf just doesn't convey that essential wolfishness. And at that point, with every component dislocated, it's hard for the reader to engage at all, and what you'r ...more

Loved the art work very innovative and different than the usual stuff. Found the story line confusing at times and had to reread certain sections.

To be honest the story lines are coming of age and werewolf, not subjects I normally follow or have an interest in but picked it up for the artwork stood out. For anyone who likes the Graphic Novel genre this is worth the read for the graphics even if it is not a normal subject you follow.

Although I really wanted to like it more, it didn't have the details to pull me in as much as I'd like. It felt more like a vague, removed story outline with pictures rather than a full blown literary piece itself. I did however enjoy the bonus comic "king blood". It felt much more developed and thought out. Hopefully volume 2 will fill some things in for me rather than rushing through and pushing forward in a barely fleshed out series of plot events ...more

Spooky story, cool art, interesting characters, but the dialogue is terrible. Really, really terrible. Almost unimaginably terrible. However, I think it’s still worth checking out for the story. Some might not like it, but werewolf fans will probably be interested!

The art style is really unique and refreshing, but the story is somewhat difficult to follow. I can tell that a lot of love went into the character designs, and it’s a very quick read. I love the concept of a female werewolf, I just wish that we got more depth.

this felt a little disorienting and didn't have much of a narrative/actual plot. not much more really struck me beyond that. ...more

The art and the story are both compelling. If you love 80s-90s grunge with a paranormal twinge, this is for you!

Interesting illustrations and a bonus book. Fun stories. Shapeshifting and vampires. Rated M.

Aw, man. This was so close! Werewolf and vampire witchy goths! Right? I liked the art, actually. But the plot and dialog... not so much. I wasn't confused, it just wasn't there. Some comics can really use the "distinctive art with bare bones plot and dialog" style, but this didn't pull it off. It felt more like an imitation of those other, better comics. The bonus comic at the end was better, though. ...more

Style is just as important to my enjoyment of a graphic novel or comic as character development and plot. If I don't enjoy how an artist draws, inks, or colors, it is difficult for me to really engage with the work. Rich Tomamso's style isn't my favorite, but sometime it makes so much sense with his stories (such as in parts of Dark Corridor: The Complete Series) that I end up really enjoying his work.

Unfortunately, the style and the story didn't really mesh for me in She Wolf. Also, the story s

I finished the second spell and gave up. Picked it back up just to try again and spell number four was my favorite so I gave it three stars mostly for that.

I actually liked the artwork in this one. Yes, it's weirdly drawn and disjointed in its storytelling - but neither of those are deal-breakers for me. It wasn't great, but I might read on out of curiosity because I am a fan of werewolves and vampires. ...more

A narrative mess but the artwork has a fun energy to it.

This is weird, this is good. If I had picked just a single issue of this, I may have not been particularly interested, but having read issues 1-4 (with bonus Blood Prince) I was really able to get into the tone and flow of the story. I look forward to other collections.

Werewolves and vampires - not much good in my opinion

A high school girl gets scratched by a werewolf and slowly becomes one. She is befriended by a vampire and they get up to all sorts. This is not particularly interesting stuff and the line drawing artwork does not appeal to me makes this a poor choice for me.
