NASA's gotta be rethinking the space monkey thing now...


When the mission is so deadly, so dangerous, that NASA's willing to send their AWOL werewolf-astronaut back into space...that's pretty damn dangerous.

After losing contact with a space-station, and with budget cuts leaving only one ship available--hey, this could be written today!--erstwhile Man-Wolf John Jameson is offered a pardon to go up there and see what's what. (It's handwaved that the ship in question is John's, from a previous mission.) This is a bad idea, made worse by John not getting there in time and Man-Wolfing out in space.


Instead of exploding in space, Man-Wolf is brought on board the station; which seems like a bad idea, bringing a werewolf on board which has been commandeered by a group including an armored warrior and a barbarian. They also seem to know more about the "Weirdstone" on John's neck than he does, to boot...

There's also a few subplots brewing, with Nick Fury, John's fiance Francine and a guy calling himself "God," and John's dad J. Jonah Jameson. Subplots and supporting casts...seems so old-school, now.

From a thrashed copy of Creatures on the Loose #36, "Weirdstone" Written by David Kraft, art by George Perez and Frank McLaughlin. Slowly putting together a run of these...

Solely based on the art, I would have guessed that that was a DC comic! Wow.

What's this about bringing a werewolf onto your ship being a bad idea? I don't get it. 'Course I'm a card carrying member of Team Jacob.
