Wolfcop sounds stupid, but hey if its stupid and it works then it ain’t stupid!! And this works

We start with a drunk driving a beat up car down the highway arguing with his passenger before breaking down and stopping, this is where we find out the drunk is a cop and wanted for murder. A Biker gang arrives with two females tied up and confront the cop (Lou) and after an altercation have him and Willie tied up on their bikes as hostages too.

As they travel down the road Lou starts to convulse and turns into a werewolf before ripping a couple of bikers to bits. The rest of the gang fire at him but it barely affects him and he completely tears through them in a fantastically gory set piece leading to the rescue of the girls. One legs it as you would when confronted with a wolfcop but the other leads them to a place where a big boss dude eats people. After a few more drinks Lou steams straight into the camp and shreds the gang apart, but then the Boss reveals he is also a writhing and sheds his skin to reveal a massive pig ( I know but trust me it’s pretty cool) they fight and with a sweet one-liner Wolfcop defeats him rescues the girls boyfriend and rides off into the sunset, to get a beer.

This is based on a movie that until now I had never heard of but will be away to hunt down. I think it leads off from where the movie ends and explains why they are already on the run. It has everything you need in a comic really, action,comedy,unbelievably gory and a werewolf who is also a cop and a drunk. The rapport between Willie and Lou is really good with my favourite bit being when Willie lights his cigarette off of Lou’s burning hair.

Boxes are filling and thanks to the digital age we live in so is the harddrive! I love finding a new comic to obsess over and rediscovering old comics to immerse myself in from the very first issue.
