The Astounding Wolf-Man Director’s Cut #1
Robert Kirkman, Jason Howard
Image Comics
$4.25/$3.99 US
*** 1/2 (out of five)

Hmmm… $4.25 or free? Decisions, decisions.
The Astounding Wolf-Man #1 was Image Comics’ Free Comic Book Day title this year and many people took advantage of that to scoop up the debut issue of popular writer Robert Kirkman’s new ongoing series.
Those who missed the boat get a second shot with this director’s cut, which is a bit of a misnomer as the story is exactly as it appeared in the free edition and the only extra is a sketchbook by series artist Jason Howard.
Still, if you didn’t get the freebee, The Astounding Wolf-Man #1, which sees millionaire businessman Gary Hampton dealing with the fact he’s become a lycanthrope, is well worth scooping up. Kirkman (Invincible, The Walking Dead, Irredeemable Ant-Man) is one of the top writing talents in comics today and you’re likely to be getting in on the ground floor of the next big thing.
