Taboo Of The Black Eyed Peas And Benjamin Jackendoff Introduce A New Werewolf By Night To The Marvel Universe


Jay Cochran - September 08, 2020
Taboo of The Black Eyed Peas will be co-writing a new Marvel comic series this April with Benjamin Jackendoff.

The pair previously worked together on a story for MARVEL COMICS 1000 that focused on Red Wolf and will now be teaming up with acclaimed comic artist Scott Eaton on WEREWOLF BY NIGHT. The series will introduce a brand-new Werewolf by Night character to the Marvel Universe in a story set in Arizona. The new Werewolf by Night will be a young man named Jake who will be dealing with the effects of a family curse while trying to protect his people. The events of the story will also be driven by the outcome of March’s OUTLAWED one-shot.

“We're going through a Native lens because of my Native American heritage,” Taboo told Comicbook.com. “I always liked storytelling from a native perspective. Although I was born in the city of Los Angeles, recently I've been really connected to the Indian country or to native communities to be able to be a service and help native youth, inspire them, especially when it comes to health and wellness, and arts and music. So we built our partnership knowing that when we create, we create through a native lens…”

“I think Werewolf by Night is such an interesting character, a cool character. His mythology is really dope, and it was such an exciting opportunity to be able to revamp a new mythology and tie it into Native American storytelling,” Jackendoff added. “That's really what got us excited because they were like, ‘All right, cool. We can take the Werewolf by Night brand and stay true to the genre of it all, the creatures, the monsters, the big stuff, all that, but tie it into Native American storytelling, into a Native American background and palette, but still make it a fun adventure story about a kid.’"

WEREWOLF BY NIGHT #1 hits stand this April.

Like the overall look of this werewolf except the under bite. Poor design choice. Cant image that would be a functional evolutionary feature

Yes it IS odd...reminds me of wild pig tusks.

Jack Russel wasn't a huge guy, a classic WBN should come on the already available Jackal buck. New snarling & yelling head sculpt plus fist & open clawing hands & we are good to go!  Won't buy any modern rendition of WBN, classic version would be ideal for the next Spidey retro wave along with Hector Ayala White Tiger utilizing the just released classic MK buck, different lower arms/legs & unmasked Hector head sculpt, open/closed MA hands. Classic Tarantula utilizing the MK buck as well.

Wasn't talking about a classic WBN jack russell. I just want a cool werewolf figure in my life. Based on the new version of WBN. Ill buy both versions. Just a very cool looking werewolf. This version could go on the beast body with alternate hands and head. I shouldve specified.

If Im being honest here, I want this to succeed because I want a Marvel Legends Werewolf by Night update.

Classic is preferred but I absolutely would take any version to get a Werewolf with the incredible articulation of Legends

this is my whole take away from this new series I hope it generates enough popularity that we can get a new WBN, I hope it's a classic look with the Alt more Modern wolflike head, I'd be really happy if we could see a Marvel Horror resurgence, oh so happy

A classic Jack Russell WEREWOLF would be killer.. maybe an alt head that reflects his more modern appearance. 

I agree though, classic WBN isnt a huge creature.. they kept him close to the old Universe Wolf Man  appearance for his early look

If this new guy is Beast size or something similar thats fine too, many Werewolf stories have the creature quite large

I just want Hasbro to make us a werewolf by night figure that uses the Beast mold and looks similar to this.
