Werewolves are popping up all over. You merely have to go to any theater and find one. There is, for example, Scrunt, a werewolf-like creature, in M. Night Shyamalan’s new Lady in the Water.
One of Linda Godfrey’s good illustrations of you-know-what.
Reporting from 2006 San Diego Comic-Con, Day One, on Friday July 21st, Dark Horizons’ Garth Franklin writes about another forthcoming appearance of other werewolves:
Director Jim Isaac and character/creature designer Stan Winston were on hand to present “Skinwalkers,” a werewolf horror film starring Rhona Mitra and Jason Behr. The story follows two kinds of the creatures – one camp of werewolves who embraces the beast part or their personality, while the other feels a moral duty to keep it restrained.
A small civil war between these camps centers on a child, half human and half werewolf. The characters start off as human looking but with a cruel edge, before becoming more beastly along the way and finally transforming into full blown creatures – all practical too, not digital.

According to the Guardian on July 21, the movie that is getting most of the attention at Comic-Con is Snakes on a Plane!
Still waiting to hear more of Cryptid from San Diego. But in the meantime, here’s another new piece of art from that new comic.
