Description

Boldly signed by the artist on the title page.

Cycle of the Werewolf is a short horror novel by Stephen King, a collaboration between King and Berni Wrightson. It was originally conceived as a calendar with illustrations by renowned comic book artist Bernie Wrightson. Each month would feature a drawing by Wrightson with a short vignette by King. King found the size problematic and expanded his prose into a novella.

Each chapter is a short story unto itself. It tells the story of a werewolf haunting a small town as the moon turns full once every month. It was published as a limited edition hardcover in 1983 by Land of Enchantment, and in 1985 as a mass-market trade paperback by Signet.

In the midst of his Frankenstein period, Wrightson continued his Franklin Booth-inspired style in the 12 beautiful pen & ink double-page landscapes in this book. The moody landscapes are balanced by 12 lurid colorful paintings -- 10 including the Werewolf himself.
