    Also also how come there are never any lady werewolves?

    Except for that one book series.

    I think because going werewolf is a symbol for losing control and going feral and hairy and murdering everybody that bugs you.

    Which traditionally is not a behavior ladies get to engage in because obviously ladies are delicate flowers not hateful raging beasts. They get ravished BY werewolves, they don't do the ravishing.

    They get to be vampires though because lady vampires are about losing control and being all sexy

    (not to say that's a GOOD reason, just that seems pretty obviously why there's so few of them. It's hard to sexually objectify a hairy woman with a wolf head)

    It's odd, though, because the monthly cycle/lunar cycle thing seems like a pretty natural parallel to draw when you're making nature-based horror stories like werewolf stories should theoretically be

    Alan Moore did a pretty interesting bit in Swamp Thing about exactly this, the moon and blood, about the werewolf inside of a woman raging against the injustice and the silence of the lunar goddess

    I was just thinking that an explicitly feminist treatment of a werewolf story would be a ton of fun

    Like there's totally a ton of thematic ground to cover there

    Just, y'know, hardly anyone's done it, I think cuz hairy wolf ladies aren't hawt

    I don't know that I'd call it explicitly feminist, but you should track down Moore's run on Saga of the Swamp Thing - the werewolf story is fairly early on, and it's one of the better treatments of the concept I've ever read

    Also it made me very sad

    That Swamp Thing comic was the first horror comic I ever bought, and I immediately fell in love with Swamp Thing based on it.

    Wolf's Rain is really well made but I found it honestly a bit too slow paced. Like, there are episodes upon episodes where there's nothing significant happening, or at least you aren't sure if it's significant or not.

    Out of the 30 episodes there are about 10 that are largely filler, 4 are pure recap, and the story in the remaining 16 or so they really could have condensed into maybe 10 episodes.

    The stuff with the other Nobles and outer cities seemed really interesting, as did a lot of the stuff with the remaining humans, and they barely cover it in the series.

    anyway here are some GIS results for "wolfcomics"

    I am pretty sure Off-white is the only actually good wolfcomic, and it took a couple of chapters of really bad writing to get there.

    I mean I still like the bad ones, but for their badness rather than their goodness.

    Writing a comic about wolves seems like it would be an interesting challenge

    One of the problems is that you'd have to have super strong art to back it up

    Off-White is a pretty okay webcomic.

    I need to archive binge it at some point, because I've fallen so far behind that I pretty much don't remember anything.

    Wasn't there some horror movie in the 80s that had a female news anchor turn into a werewolf live on TV or something?

    I think it was called The Howling. I don't remember if it was any good or not.

    Many roleplaying games abstract damage to people into more or less generic "damage points" of some sort. But when it comes to damaging vehicles, it somehow seems much more important to determine exactly what bit of the vehicle has been damaged and what the effect of loss of a specific component will be. This ends up meaning that the vehicle damage tables in a lot of games end up being an order of magnitude larger and more complicated than tables describing damage to living beings.

    We also learn from this comic that Jim deals with computers a lot.

    Didn't we just go through this? Seriously, in the movie, there's the whole "There's always a bigger fish" gag - one giant fish grabs the bongo, and another comes along and eats it - then they lose power and Obi-Wan fixes it. And then they go through the whole thing again. Another giant fish chases them, and they escape by the fortunate intervention of a fourth giant fish.

    If this sort of thing happens in your game, you'd be well justified in calling your GM uncreative. Or that he needs better random encounter tables.

    O Human Star is a good comic that has now flashed back to the present, hence the colour change. There are bits in it that you don't want to read if a priest/grandma is sitting next to you.

    There's like five or six Howling movies if not more. I think one actually used the residents of an entire town for most of the cast.

    Even better with the alt text:
    After that a brand of cereals had the same idea and actually did it. For my imaginary rant, it was funny, but in the reality, trying to sell people 'manly' cereals sounded just sexist and sad. Like Pratchett said: 'Always be careful with what you wish, there might be someone listening.'

    After that I saw a documentary about industrial milk production and now I scream 'I want soy milk!'

    I love the commercial for 'embarassing' products, like toilet paper or hemorroids cream because they can't talk about WHAT their product actually does. When I was a kid I thought Tampax was something about sports, because the commercial were always about women running, swimming and sailing boats.

    This one since I think it pretty good.
