Earlier in the week, we announced Cy Dethan as the writer of Abnorm: In the Dog House, a werewolf origin tale.
Now, feast your eyes on this morsel of tasty comic artwork from the art team of Ruairi Coleman (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Turok: Dinosaur Hunter) and Omi Remalante (Flash Gordon, Ninjak)
Ruairi’s storytelling and linework perfectly translates Cy’s Script into a gorgeous visual narrative, with Omi’s colour work adding so much character and depth to the page.
Here’s a little bit sneak at the team’s process for creating a comicbook page:
Step 1 – Script by Cy Dethan
2) Cut back to the exterior of the nightclub. Abnorm, very wolfish in form but still bipedal for the moment, bursts out through the door, blowing it off its hinges in the process. He still clutches the drumstick in his teeth, blind panic on his face.
SO I RAN FOR ME LIFE, AND NOT A MAN AMONG THEM COULD CATCH ME.
3) Angle to follow a transforming Abnorm as he bolts away from the nightclub. As he runs, his forelimbs and muzzle continue to elongate, dropping him into a loping four-legged run.
I HADN’T TOUCHED A DROP ALL NIGHT, BUT IT WAS A WHOLE NEW WORLD OUTSIDE. NEW SIGHTS, NEW SOUNDS – NEW SCENTS, EVEN.
I FOLLOWED ME NOSE HERE, YE MIGHT SAY.
4) Cut back to the present, with Abnorm’s wolfman face tight in the foreground and the “flashbackground” behind him showing him fleeing into the night in four-legged wolf form.
I RAN ALL NIGHT. TO BE HONEST WITH YE, I DON’T EVEN KNOW WHERE I ENDED UP.
I’M NOT THE MAN I WAS, BUT THIS PLACE… IT JUST SORTA SMELLED LIKE HOME, SOMEHOW.
