The first wendigo story I ever read was in Uncanny X-Men 139-140, followed by Peter Straub’s Ghost Story, Pet Semetary by Stephen King, and most recently in the comic B.P.R.D.. Judged solely by the measure of entrails, eye gouging, and fecal matter, Curse of the Wendigo surpasses them all. The first half of the book is an outdoors adventure in the Canadian wilderness that pits our heroes against the elements while being pursued by a possibly mythical predator. Act two is the Hammer Films portion of the story, just transplanted from England to late 1800s New York, in which distinguished gentlemen (and one 13 year old boy) hunt a monstrous killer in a reeking maze of tenement slums. If you thought Great Expectations would have benefited from the inclusion of cannibalism, silver bullets, and death worms, then this might be a dream come true for you. Having finished Book 2, I’m still in disbelief this is a series intended for young readers. But if you’re okay with reading descriptions about mutilated newborns floating in cellars full of raw sewage, then full steam ahead!
full of action, suprising, and funny.
Incredible material. Very heady, but down to earth at the same time. If you want some mind-culture expanding reading, this is a great one. It has altered the way I view the world.
