Riot Recommendations

Today’s Riot Rec theme is: wolves! They’re like really big puppies! Reading these comics is probably safer than trying to hug a wolf. Except if you get a bad papercut, those are nasty.

Snowlands A Blood Moon cover

Snowlands: A Blood Moon by Morr Meroz and Collin Fogel

As an unlucky white wolf, Feba gets the blame for everything that goes wrong with her pack, which abandons her to the elements after all of the other cubs disappear.

Squad by Maggie Tokuda-Hall and Lisa Sterle

Technically, this one is about werewolves, but it still counts, right? In this YA tale, Becca is delighted to be accepted by the most popular girls at her new high school. Even after she finds out they are werewolves, she remains loyal, allowing them to turn her so she, too, can hunt down the school’s predatory male students. But how far is Becca really willing to go in the name of friendship and justice?
