AGENT: WEREWOLF

During the classic horror boom of the 1960s, Dell publishing set out to cash in on a few major character titles. Dell's superhero/spy comic Werewolf lasted three issues between 1966-1967. A radical departure from the usual horror adaptation, the comic centered around a pilot who crashed in the arctic circle and was trained by wolves. Once he and his wolf companion were rescued, he was recruited to work as a top spy with the aid of gadgets and a hypnotic treatment that enabled him to change his face at will. Handy!
