The comic book adaptation of WENDIGO (now reprinted digitally on Comixology) by Fessenden, Brahm Revel, and Peter Chung, makes The Creators Project’s list of the best comics of the week.
Story by Larry Fessenden, art by Brahm Revel, letters by Peter Chung.
Based on the Glass Eye Pix film Wendigo (2001) written and directed by Larry Fessenden, this comic adaptation originally hit shelves almost 15 years ago. Now, thanks to Comixology, the frenetic work is available again digitally. The story follows a family taking a weekend off in the woods, and follows a tenuous relationship between a father, a son, a mother, a hunter, and a Wendigo—an Algonquian cryptozoological spirit of the forest. Full of tense moments and complicated family dynamics, and illustrated in stark black-and-white by Revel that invoke everything from early American woodcuts to Chick tracts, Wendigo is a 70-page love letter to folkloric horror.
