Characters Appearing: Buck Cowan, Father Joquez, Lissa Russell, Terri (Jack Russell's girlfriend), Werewolf By Night
Werewolf By Night #2
Issue(s): Werewolf By Night #2
Jack's girlfriend Terri is seen again (this will be her last appearance, i think).
And she suggests taking the Darkhold, which is in Latin, to a Father Joquez for translation.
Interesting that it's suggested that Jack's father actually wrote the Darkhold, but either they don't mean that literally or it'll be revised in the next arc.
Ok, original review from here:
This is a story about a Werewolf. He fights a shark! Awesome!
He also fights a dwarf martial artist.
There's something about a guy who needs to absorb the werewolf's essence but it's not important because the Werewolf eats him. Awesome!
There's also some odd homosexual overtones going on, which i was surprised by.
But that's not important! It's a Werewolf fighting a shark! Awesome!
Quality Rating: A+
Chronological Placement Considerations: This issue begins on the third night of the same full moon as Werewolf By Night #1, but then "weeks" pass before the rest of the story. I'm placing this based on the post-"weeks" period (i assume it's the following month's full moon).
Continuity Insert? N
My Reprint: N/A
Frank Chiaramonte--or Frank Monte, as he is called in Marvel books around this time--is in my opinion the worst inker Marvel ever employed. Everything he inks comes out looking like a sloppy, scrawly mess. Compare Mike Ploog's self-inked art in Marvel Spotlight #2(1st Werewolf) and #5(first Ghost Rider)to issues of both books inked by Frank and you'll see.

I've probably read 200 of your entries by now, and I have to LOVE how this comic got the A+!!

Its sad: now you have the actual run of Werewolf By Night, the context is going to be lost on how awesome this issue was. Nothing as random and awesome as werewolf-on-shark action.

Quick recipe check: Take one werewolf, throw in one shark and one dwarf, have it brought to life by Mike Ploog. Yep, sounds like an A+ stew to me! Although I do agree with Mark that Ploog inking himself, plus being his own colorist to boot, is superior work.
