ENCYCLOPOCALYPSE PUBLICATIONS TO RELEASE THE GRAPHIC NOVEL “WHERE WOLF”: "Encylopocalypse Publication (the independent horror and grindhouse press run by Saturn-Award-winning producer and New York Times bestselling author Mark Alan Miller) is set to release their first graphic novel—WHERE WOLF, a creator-owned graphic novel from creative team Rob Saucedo, Debora Lancianese and Jack Morelli, on Friday, July 7. 

The graphic novel will be available in paperback and hardcover formats—with three different covers available for readers to choose from.

This horror-comedy comic book was previously serialized as the first webcomic hosted on legendary horror brand FANGORIA’s website. The book is set in the wild world of furry conventions, small-town Texas journalism and werewolf whodunits. Leading up to the wide release of the book, writer Rob Saucedo will tour movie theaters across the country—screening werewolf films and providing an opportunity to purchase the graphic novel early at concurrent signing events beginning on March 31. 

In advance of the wide release of the book, Saucedo will tour movie theatres nationwide,  screening a selection of werewolf films, including SILVER BULLET (via a brand new DCP that will debut as part of this tour), AN AMERICAN WEREWOLF IN LONDON in 4K, THE HOWLING in 4K, WOLF COP and more. Additional locations will be added through the end of 2023. 

In WHERE WOLF, something scary stalks the streets of Texas, leaving a trail of corpses in its wake. The only person standing in its path is Larry Chaney, a slacker reporter who can’t hold a job, can’t keep a girlfriend, and can’t stop getting in the way of his own career. Larry must go undercover at a local furry convention if he hopes to stop the beast dead set on turning the gathered attendees into an all-you-can-eat buffet. The graphic novel is a love letter to werewolf fans, with an irreverent bent that takes decades of lycanthropic lore to new heights and surprising places.

“WHERE WOLF is a tribute to some of my favorite things—KOLCHAK: THE NIGHT STALKER, Gregory McDonald’s FLETCH novels and the weird idiosyncrasies found in small-town Texas life,” says WHERE WOLF writer Rob Saucedo. “It’s a werewolf story that’s also about people’s capacity to change and become better versions of themselves. I’m very excited to work with the wonderful team at Encyclopocalypse Publications to finally offer a physical copy of the comic in three gorgeously-designed editions.” 

“The book had me hooked from page one,” says Encylopocalypse President Mark Alan Miller. “I f*$&ing love werewolf stories, so it was an easy choice for me. Between the book, Rob’s genius, and the nationwide tour WHERE WOLF will be embarking upon, we have something really special on our hands here.” 

Confirmed locations for the “Werewolves Across America” tour include:

"Customers can order all three versions of the book directly from BuyHorrorBooks.com or from retailers including Amazon and Barnes & Noble."

"Ahead of its launch as a webcomic, WHERE WOLF was optioned for film, podcast, and television development by producers James Fino (THE FREAK BROTHERS for Tubi, RICK AND MORTY for Adult Swim) and Charles Horak (FIRST DATE for Magnolia Pictures, THE WEIRD KIDZ)."
