Planet Jimbot’s ‘Wolf Country’ launched

Wolf Country #1Wolf Country issue 1, the latest Planet Jimbot comic – written by Jim Alexander with art by Luke Cooper – is out now.

Wolf Country Issue 1 an all-new self-contained story, which Jim tells us will have “major ramifications” for future stories to come.

In the issue a vampire settlement is surrounded by hostile werewolf tribes. The settlement is there for religious reasons, following the teachings of a vampire god. The werewolves, of course, don’t want them on their land. They consider a vampire presence on their land to be sacrilege.

The story is a tale of a frontier of fang and claw, with death and vengeance the common currency.

“In Wolf Country, you need to watch your back and keep your loved ones close,” says Jim, “because someone – or something – is always out to get you…”

It’s an intriguing tale, centering on two vampires caught out in the open in pursuit of a lone wolf, developing the background to the concept and throwing out plenty of hooks to have the reader wanting to know more about this strange world.

Planet Jimbot is a new publishing imprint created by Jim Alexander and Jim Campbell.
