At the theatrical release in 1941, The Wolfman directed by George Waggner proved a resounding success and forcefully entered the pantheon of Universal Classic Monsters. A great classic of the vintage horror film, which has undergone several reinterpretations over the years and is now being revived in the comic book published by NPE Editions: «The Wolf Man», with the suggestive tables of Sergio Vanello and the texts of Luca Franceschini.

The volume is a hardcover consisting of 80 black and white pages at a price of 19.90 euros. The protagonist is young Larry Talbot, who has returned to Wales to reunite with his father after the disappearance of his older brother. He soon falls in love with a girl, Gwen, the daughter of an antique dealer from whom he buys a strange stick. After spending an evening having a group of gypsies predict the future, Larry bumps into a wolf and, in an attempt to kill him, is bitten in the chest. In the grip of nightmares and visions of deviant rituals, he will realize the next day that he has been fighting a werewolf. From that moment on, his life will change forever.

Starting from the plot of the famous film, the story has been retold and adapted to the language of comics, emphasizing the ‘horror’ dimension, the visionary and the constant unresolved dualism between man and animal. A metaphorical journey through the human psyche to discover a latent animal aspect, frightening and fascinating at the same time. From September 16 in bookstores.
