I recently came across Multiple Warheads: Alphabet To Infinity, a bizarre werewolf comic, one that was possibly made while the creator was under the influence of some sort of hallucinogen. It’s an odd comic. I just finished reading Issue #1, check out my review of this unique comic below.
“Sexica and her Werewolf boyfriend Nikoli travel across a sci-fi, fantasy Russia smoking singing cigarettes.
Meanwhile the organ hunter Nura is sent out with a severed head and instructions to find its body.”

Check out my break down of the comic…
Artwork: 3.5 out of 5
I liked that the artwork wasn’t the same old cookie cutter comic book style. It was awesome that it was something different, something unique. But, I would have liked to see a bit more detail. It was kind of a chaotic mess of colors and shapes, I didn’t really know what I was looking at a lot of the time.
Story: 3 out of 5
The creator gets loads of points for creativity. This was definitely a wonderfully strange and totally original comic (they smoke cigarettes that SING). But, while interesting, it made zero sense. I have no idea what was going on in the world of this comic. I don’t know if there was a comic before this series that fills readers in on what’s up, but from what I see Multiple Warheads: Alphabet To Infinity is a standalone comic… one that makes no kinds of sense to me. Also worth mentioning, this comic has a random little naughty scene in it, so it’s not really appropriate for youngsters. And, as every werewolf fan wants to know, while there is a werewolf character in the comic, it’s not explored in the first issue, he doesn’t transform or anything.
All in all, Multiple Warheads: Alphabet To Infinity is an peculiar comic full of weirdness. But, it doesn’t make sense. It’s in serious need of a backstory.
