Can’t wait until Scott, Stiles, Allison and Jackson start ripping off their clothes and transforming for you under the full moon? Well, they’ve got something to tide you over until Teen Wolf returns in 2012 (possibly with 24 new episodes – twice the amount as season one! We’ll keep you posted on that one). MTV has teamed up with comic book publishing company Top Cow to bring you Teen Wolf: Bite Me.
Announced earlier this year at the San Diego Comic Con (the holy land/event for all things sci-fi), the book will be written by David Tischman (writer of American Century for Vertigo/DC) and illustrated by Stephen Mooney. Top Cow is responsible for publishing comics like Witchblade and The Darkness.
The comic is the first in a three-issue series and will feature a mix of the action and romance we love on the show! The first issue was available as of yesterday, so pick it up and start counting down the days until the new season premieres on MuchMusic!
Tischman had this to say about the comic at Comic Con (as printed on ONTD.com):
“The scripts are so smart, and I worked with [showrunner] Jeff Davis to keep the same scary horror we see each week on the show; the personal horror of Scott dealing with being a werewolf, and the predatory horror of the werewolf culture. But I also really wanted to focus on the relationship moments between Scott and Allison. In those scenes, I think everybody remembers what that first love was like — the scary, gut-wrenching ‘does she like me?’ and ‘can I touch that?’ moments we all have growing up. The book’s been a lot of fun to write, and I can’t wait to see what Jeff comes up with for Season 2.“Tweet
