Taboo of The Black Eyed Peas Writes a Native American Werewolf By Night, With Benjamin Jackendoff and Scott Eaton, For Marvel Comics

Taboo of The Black Eyed Peas will be reviving Marvel Comics' Werewolf By Night, co-written with Benjamin Jackendoff and drawn by Scott Eaton. And bringing us a brand-new Werewolf by Night character, a young man named Jake who will be dealing with the effects of a family curse while trying to protect his people in Arizona. And spinning out of the Outlawed one-shot in March.

Taboo is quoted as saying "We're going through a Native lens because of my Native American heritage… I always liked storytelling from a native perspective. Although I was born in the city of Los Angeles, recently I've been really connected to the Indian country or to native communities to be able to be a service and help native youth, inspire them, especially when it comes to health and wellness, and arts and music. So we built our partnership knowing that when we create, we create through a native lens…"

"I think Werewolf by Night is such an interesting character, a cool character. His mythology is really dope, and it was such an exciting opportunity to be able to revamp a new mythology and tie it into Native American storytelling," Jackendoff added. "That's really what got us excited because they were like, 'All right, cool. We can take the Werewolf by Night brand and stay true to the genre of it all, the creatures, the monsters, the big stuff, all that, but tie it into Native American storytelling, into a Native American background and palette, but still make it a fun adventure story about a kid."
