Some time back, I posted the covers of Dell's first two "super-monster" comic books, Dracula and Frankenstein. Well, here's the third, inevitable entry, Werewolf, the only one I haven't actually seen.
And it's a shame, too, because I think I could really have gotten into this one, as it's about a super spy codenamed "Werewolf" who battles enemy agents along side his pet wolf. This means that Dell was not only trying to capitalize on the Silver Age super-hero boom and the Famous Monsters/Shock Theater monster fad, but the Bond mania of the era, too! (Interestingly and, I'm sure, coincidentally, there's also a 60's Nick Carter novel titled Code Name: Werewolf.) Drawn by Tony Tallarico, Werewolf's all-black outfit reminds me agreeably of Diabolik. I'm going to have to try and hunt this down someday.
Just a reminder – last week's Wednesday Cover Contest ends tonight at midnight. If you want to get in on a chance to win the new Tales of the Green Lantern Corps trade paperback, scroll down to this post for the rules and instructions.
