Extinct is about werewolves. For awhile everything was Vampires, then Zombies and now it seems Werewolves are getting their due. Werewolves are invading a small town in Texas and three friends (well two friends and the popular girl they’re stuck in detention with) are right in the middle of it. It seems that the werewolves have taken over the school and are preparing for a revolution. They are tired of being hunted to extinction.

There’s something special about this particular night as different forces converge on this small town. And for Jimmy, the main character who is a high school loner, it means being reunited with someone he thought long gone.

This revelation makes the story more interesting as it hints at a deeper story to this series. Instead of it being a coincedance that the werewolves are in this town, all of a sudden this revelation gives the town special meaning. What that meaning is we’ll have to wait and see.

Rangel’s story is fast paced. There’s not as much meat as the first issue, there’s more action. This issue moves the story along. Rangel does good propelling the plot further, saving more of the story for later issues. Why the werewolves are doing what they are doing, where they are from, is left to find out another day. Which works for the pacing of this issue. If the father’s story to the son had taken place it would have been a bump in the pace, slowing it down unnecessarily.

Morales art is nice. His werewolves are lean but large and menacing. You can feel the muscles in their bodies as well as the agility they would process. They retain some characteristics to their human forms, beyond just fur/hair color. I had forgotten that the story actually takes place in the 80s. A caption mentioning that at the beginning probably would help as the characters are definately wearing 80s clothes and hair.
