AGE OF THE WOLF
“An axe-age, a sword-age, shields shall be cloven; a wind-age, a wolf age, ere the world totters…” The Norse Edda (13th century)
Created by myself and artist Jon Davis-Hunt for 2000 AD, Age Of The Wolf is an apocalyptic adventure in which werewolves have overrun the world, as a centuries-old prophecy causes a full moon to rise every night. Set primarily amid the ruins of London, the series follows a woman named Rowan Morrigan, who fights to not only defy her destiny but also retain her humanity as civilisation crumbles throughout this three-part series.
Age Of The Wolf

The world has found itself living beneath a permanent full moon. Scientists are baffled, while religious groups believe
it to be the end of days. As winter falls and tensions rise, a young woman named Rowan Morrigan finds herself at the heart of an ancient prophecy that dictates mankind will devour itself.
Age Of The Wolf: She Is Legend
Ten episodes, with art by Jon Davis-Hunt and letters by Simon Bowland, in 2000 AD #1772-81, Feb-May 2012.
Fifteen years after the events of the first series, a strange forest has sprouted from the ruins of London and Rowan Morrigan – now a mysterious figure known as ‘Little Red Robin Hood’ – must defend the human survivors against ravenous werewolves, ruthless slavers and strange post-apocalyptic cults.
Age Of The Wolf: Wolfworld
Ten episodes, with art by Jon Davis-Hunt and letters by Annie Parkhouse, in 2000 AD #1840-50, July-Sept 2013.
Another 20 years on and the world is ruled by a race of intelligent werewolves. Few human survivors remain, but Rowan is among them, now a grizzled rune-witch dedicated to exterminating the lycanthropes and breaking the 'moonspell' that threatens humanity with extinction. The aging warrior must embark on an epic hunt when her surrogate daughter is captured by an ambitious werewolf matriarch determined to bring about her own day of reckoning.
Rebellion collected all three series of Age Of The Wolf as a single graphic novel in October 2014. It's available from Amazon UK, Amazon US and in both print and digital from the 2000 AD webstore.
