When Stephen’s beloved older brother dies, the 13-year-old and his friend Nicole create a comic book to help channel his grief. This inventive debut novel combines the often wrenching tale of a family in distress with the illustrated comic that allows Stephen to battle the forces of fear and loss.
Comic book legend Stan Lee says of the book: “I dipped into Evan Kuhlman’s Wolf Boy and couldn’t put it down. Interspersed throughout the pages of this imaginative and compelling novel is a unique graphic novel, cleverly drawn by Brendon and Brian Fraim, making Wolf Boy a rare treat.”
