Review: In Place of Honor #2

In Place of Honor #2

I remember the first time I watched An American Werewolf in London. The movie made by the great John Landis was one of those campy horror movies that was both fun and scary. What stayed with me all these years from that celluloid classic was that it was the first time that I saw a Werewolf transformation on screen. I’ve seen many more since.

Probably the most disturbing transformations can be found in The Howling movies where we saw every type of transformation even from birth. The world of Lycans seemed to never be as cool as Vampires, that was until shows like Being Human and movies like Underworld. The mythology laid out by the latter gave us a world where it mirrored our own. It’s one divided by class and misunderstanding. In the second issue of the epic In Place Of Honor, we delve into a world where there are the Hunters and the Hunted.

The series is a dystopian retelling of Little Red Riding Hood, in which the Big Bad Wolf and Red join forces to save their people from themselves. In the second issue, we find Bennett awake from her transformation back to human form, in a place unknown to her, as she attempts to deal with events of the last few hours. We also catch up with Ryder, whose friend worries about her empathy for the Lycans outweighs her duty and loyalty to the Hoods.

Overall, an engaging story that elevates the genre, and feels like a cross between Twilight, Lost Girl, and Underworld, in something even better. The story by Kimberly Moss is exciting, well-characterized and layered. The art by Digo Salazar is truly breathtaking. Altogether, a story which will draw you in with its characters and leave you wanting more of this world.
