Synopsis: Tusk sells dogfood until turns by himself a dog, a werewolf. An absendminded sorcerer promises to help him. On the way they help one other werewolf and make it a big bisness.
Comment: Corben's artwork is a little over-colored, a lot of red, and the result is bit of murky. There is one excellent pict of Mr. Wagstaff; it's on page seven, when he forgets spell. Jack Butterworth's story gives a totally new angle for werewolf stories, but he does not use this possibility wisely.
