Wolf's Head Issue 1 launches today on ComiXology


Wolf's Head Launches on ComiXology Today Featuring Lauren, Patty, and Sanko - Illustrated by Von AllanOttawa, Ontario (April 22, 2020): ‘Wolf’s Head,’ an ongoing comic book series written and illustrated by Canadian comics creator Von Allan, has now arrived on ComiXology, a digital distribution platform for comic books. This is the first time that the series has been available in a digital format, world-wide.

‘Wolf’s Head’ features Lauren Greene, a young woman who quits her job as a police officer after becoming frustrated with police violence. Coincidentally, as she’s walking away from the police force over violence, a huge corporation across town is celebrating its creation of a brand new Artificial Intelligence (or AI) that it plans to use for war. There’s a twist, though; before the organization can use its new AI for violence, the AI crosses paths with Lauren’s mom, Patty, who is a janitor at the corporation. Patty is a kind figure and the AI, brand new to humanity, immediately bonds to her, rejects its creators, and escapes. Patty ends up with the AI and asks Lauren for help. Despite being broke and a bit lost herself, Lauren can’t walk away from her mom and reluctantly agrees to help…though she can’t begin to predict the consequences of that one hurried decision.

“’Wolf’s Head’ is an action-adventure series set in our real world and it takes place in real time,” said Allan. “That means characters age, struggle to make rent and pay bills, and deal with day to day situations that so many of us know well. But it’s not all struggle. ‘Wolf’s Head’ is also an action-adventure story with some sci-fi elements, lots of wonder, and a whole lot of fun! I’m having a great time writing and drawing the series and I think that comes through in the storytelling and the characters.”

“I’ve had a few other titles on ComiXology, but bringing ‘Wolf’s Head’ to this platform is a big step for the series,” added Allan. “One of the things I love about ComiXology is their ‘Guided View’ technology, which basically guides the readers through the pages, panel by panel, so that they don’t miss any pictures or text. I also like that ComiXology works on all devices, which really opens up the readership possibilities for ‘Wolf’s Head’. I’m really looking forward to hearing what readers think as they get into the series for the first time on digital!”
