Review- FERALS VOL. 2

FERALS VOL. 2 (Avatar Press, 2013; Softcover)
Collects Ferals Nos. 7-12 (cover dates July- December, 2012)
Writer: David Lapham
Artist: Gabriel Andrade
Colorist: Digikore Studios

Things kick into high gear for this series with this volume. Dale Chesnutt has been “drafted” by the FBI to infiltrate another werewolf cult/ colony. The FBI believes that there were only a handful of werewolf colonies here in the United States, but it turns out there are more, including one that is breeding a werewolf army. 
There is nothing cooler than a werewolf. The only thing cooler than werewolves are armies of warring werewolves. David Lapham and Gabriel Andrade have delivered a spit-shined masterwork. If this high level of quality is maintained it may well rival Werewolf By Night as the greatest werewolf comic of all time. This is much better than Volume 1, which I really enjoyed. I can't wait for Volume 3.
Ferals, like all Avatar Press titles, is high on violence, gore, and sex. All ages reading it is most certainly not. If you like your Horror comic books on the extreme side then anything Avatar does is for you.
Junk Food For Thought rating: 4.75 out of 5.
The OCD zone- Volume 1 was released in hardcover and softcover. Sales weren't there, so Volume 2 was only released in softcover. Boo-urns! Come on, fandom! Buy the shit out of this book so that we can get a hardcover!
Paper rating: 4.25 out of 5. Decent weight glossy coated stock.
Binding rating: 4 out of 5. It's glued, but it looks like there are sewn signatures. I'm going to say that there are not, though, since there is no evidence of stitches anywhere.
Cardstock cover coating rating: 5 out of 5. Nice laminated coating.
