Review of Wulf & Batsy Issue #1
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.
Moonlight (aka Amanda) loves to write about, read about and learn about everything pertaining to vampires. You will most likely find her huddled over a book of vampire folklore with coffee in hand. Touch her coffee and she may bite you (and not in the fun way).
