Cry Wolf Graphic Novel Will Teach University Students

Cry Wolf Graphic Novel Will Teach University Students










Tiverton, ON (PRWEB) October 26, 2005

Doug Crill & Daniel J. Frey, the author and illustrator of the graphic novel Cry Wolf, as well as their publisher Open Book Press are proud to announce that the academic quality of the Cry Wolf graphic novel has been recognized in a big way.

This 70 page cult hit graphic novel revolves around a young private investigator who must leave his new bride and risk his life to find an old friend in the jungles of Borneo. In the process the private eye is confronted with the legend of the werewolf, and returns home with more than when he left. The story is set in Chicago in the 1920’s in the midst of the prohibition and gangster era.

The story has now been approved as a teaching text by the University of New Mexico, to be used in their English 220 class. The class will revolve around the role of the werewolf in historical and modern literature, the symbolism associated with the werewolf from different times and cultures. The symbolism of different types of werewolves and their roles will also be examined.

Other popular works of werewolf horror fiction will be examined as well. These will include books such as Guy Endore’s “The Werewolf of Paris”, Robert Louis Stevenson’s “Dr. Jekyll & Mister Hyde’, as well as popular modern and historical films. Biblical stories and ancient mythology involving the werewolf will also be studied.

The focus of the course is to examine Lycanthropy as a device in literature and teach the proper use of it in writing and how the symbolisms of the wolf trigger responses in the conscious and subconscious mind.
