# The events of the story begin on 14 November 2016, which (in the real world) is when a full moon will orbit the earth some 28,000km closer than usual, appearing 14% bigger and 30% brighter than normal.
# On page one, the references to doctors Carter, Jordan and Patterson are a reference to the writer, director and star of The Company Of Wolves. There’s other werewolf movie easter eggs in there, but I can’t remember them all.
# The heroine, Rowan Morrigan, is based on the doomed and beautiful Norse god Baldr (the ‘bleeding god’). Physically, I based her on Doctor Who actress Karen Gillen, who struck me as having just the right combination of fearlessness and girl-next-door practicality.
# The words Rowan uses in the story to ignite the runes are Old Norse.
# I actually wrote a feature on werewolf comics for the Judge Dredd Megazine #294 (March, 2010), which probably contradicts just about everything I wrote in Age Of The Wolf.
