EXCLUSIVE: A brand, spankin’ new Werewolf by Night #32 replica is coming soon…
Among the many things Marvel did well in the Bronze Age, two of them were A) monster comics and B) creating superheroes with staying power.
Well, 1975’s Werewolf by Night #32 gave you both — Jack Russell’s titular wolfman and the debut of Moon Knight.
And now you’ll be able to get your hands on the Werewolf by Night #32 Facsimile Edition come May.
Dig the official solicitation info, to be formally released soon:
WEREWOLF BY NIGHT #32 FACSIMILE EDITION
Written by DOUG MOENCH
Penciled by DON PERLIN
Cover by GIL KANE
Moon Knight makes his unforgettable first appearance — stalking Jack Russell, the Werewolf by Night! Clad from head to toe in silver and wielding crescent-shaped blades, the soldier of fortune named Marc Spector is a lycanthrope’s worst nightmare. But why is he after this particular prey — and can Jack possibly survive their first savage battle? Moon Knight, earthly avatar of the Egyptian god Khonshu, went on to become a fan-favorite character and a man of many talents — mercenary, millionaire, vigilante, Avenger, even cab driver — but wide-eyed fans first got to meet him as a werewolf hunter in this classic tale! It’s one of the all-time great Marvel comic books, boldly re-presented in its original form, ads and all! Reprinting WEREWOLF BY NIGHT (1972) #32.
A few thoughts:
— I don’t think I realized that the first time anyone saw Moon Knight was by Gil Kane on this cover. Neat.
— Requisite Price Comparison: Boy, Marvel’s three May Facsimile Editions each reprint originals that would cost you gobs of cash. In this case, a “near perfect” original recently sold for $1,402 on eBay. The Facsimile Edition is about four bucks. Aaaawhoooo!
