Storm King Comics are quite famous for their quality artworks and storylines. Storm Kids, while not for the kids under 13, is more focused on teenage horror stories meant for all horror audience and not just the teens. Monica Bleue is a great example of a well-made comic book that’s a nice take on the werewolf phenomenon.
The story is about Monica and her dad, who move out of the town. Monica’s mother is no more and we see the portrayal of an angry teenage daughter done well here. There’s a chance of you thinking about Monica’s father being too much of a secretive character as there’s not much information about him. Monica’s friends are left behind as they move to an isolated county, where we see the character development and dynamics of the dad and daughter. The comic takes a huge turn when Monica confront a deadly werewolf in the forest!
What happens afterwards is the most exciting thing here but the overall journey to the ending of this first issue is as entertaining. The situations and storyline is similar to the horror movies as there’s a lot of things to anticipate here. You wonder about the future of the characters and safety too.
For the given price, there’s enough content in the 30 paged comic. There are preview pages of the Comic #2 as well, which was released on January 8th, 2020 and we reviewed that issue too. Filled with an intriguing storyline, like-able characters and quality art, this comic book is a treat for the fans of horror genre and those who enjoyed series like Teen Wolf, Twilight, Werewolf Apocalypse, etc. werewolf related stories and lore
