Before history was recorded in stone and ink, some men wrote it in blood.
The Wolfskin Annual is the perfect way to hone your senses for the next Wolfskin series. In the world of the First Century, where broadswords, warhammers and warriors abound, a man’s worth is measured by the swiftness of his reflexes and his preparedness to kill. From the far North, the roaming Wolfskin is a mercenary of unequaled might, dedicated to delivering the souls of his enemies to a blood-thirsty God. After travelling through the wooded realm of the sexy Feral Girl, Wolfskin has arrived in a bustling coastal community, where merchants and seafarers have transformed a primitive village into an economic paradise. But the architects of the seaport’s prosperity wear the brands of criminals, and only Wolfskin suspects that behind the veneer of the town’s thriving commerce lies a secret most vile. The tattooed Algizmen, disowned by the Gods themselves, know that Wolfskin must be destroyed before the contents of the mysterious casks that have brought the seaport its wealth are exposed! Just as they’ve done with the hit series Gravel, Warren Ellis as plotmaster and Mike Wolfer on script assist have teamed up to create an immersive world drawn by stellar newcomer Gianluca Pagliarani.

The story began in Warren Ellis’ original Wolfskin Mini-Series. From the time before history began: from the time when the continents were still connected by land: from the harsh climes at the top of the world, a Northish soldier wrapped in a cape of wolfpelts walks south, into the forests of the High Midlands that are now Europe, to find a village cut in two by travellers from the East. Soon, he too is torn – between duty to the lives he has ruined just by finding them, and duty to the hideous murder-god of the Northish wastes and the berserker drugs that are his sacrament…
Wolfskin fuses heroic fantasy in the mode of Conan, the Viking sagas and samurai fiction into a single story of weird history and apocalyptic violence.
