Hurray for free comics! Over at Comixology I found myself a free vampire comic – Wulf & Batsy Issue #1. It looked like a quirky fun little read so of course I had to check it out (plus it helped that it was free). Check out my review below.
“Wulf and Batsy chronicles the adventures of a big bad Werewolf named Wulf and a feisty little Vampiress named Batsy. They are wandering the earth in search of a place to call home. But everywhere they go, they eat people, and get run out of town.
It’s not an easy thing to be a monster.”

I had some pretty mixed feelings when it came to the artwork. Some of the panels were absolutely fantastic, while others were just cringe-worthy. The thing was that the monsters in the comic were drawn awesomely, whereas some of the people were poorly proportioned and deformed looking – like something a 10-year- old would draw. So yeah, mixed feelings on the art front.
Story: 2 out of 5
There really wasn’t much of a story at all in this issue. It’s simply a vampire and a werewolf stopping in a small town, looking for a place to settle, when the townsfolk get all panicked about monsters and then go after the wolf and vamp. Nothing more. Perhaps things get a bit or innovative and dramatic in future issues, but this one was pretty dull and unoriginal. But hey, it was free.
Overall, Wulf & Batsy wasn’t really a memorable comic and not one I will continue reading. I’m afraid the first issue didn’t capture my attention. But if you’re looking for a quick and free read I’d say go at it.
