Evan says: I picked WolfPack because it just popped into my head like a flash of memory from my child hood and it is such a crazy concept.
A bunch of urban teens are trained by Mr. Mack who was trained by a lady ninja to fight a team of ninjas dedicated to destroying the 10 honest men of hebrew legend. So many concepts crammed into one book/ mini series.
For my cover I played off of how the characters in the original comic were very dated to the 80s. So I tried to put together some more modern dated outfits. My design for Mr Mack was basically if Devastatin' Dave and Terminator X had a baby. With Mr Mack I was also playing with the idea that he is one of the original pack (Slag) grown up and has taken over the mantel of Mr. Mack.
I had other concepts swimming in my head but the ideas just got to big and I had to let them go.
Here are some reviews of the original WolfPack
