WereWolf the SuperHero "First Howl" Conclusion

...he's about to burst into dynamic, daring action!
Next: The Return of Frankenstein the SuperHero!
Of the trio of monster-based superheroes created for Dell Comics by the team of writer Don Segall and artists Bill Fraccio and Tony Tallarico, WereWolf was the least like his monstrous "inspiration".
Considering Dell was not a member of the Comics Code Authority and could use a werewolf (whether mystical or scientific), it seems odd they didn't do so.
There are rumors that a second batch of monster superheroes based on the Mummy, Invisible Man, and Creature from the Black Lagoon were proposed and some preliminary art had been done, but poor sales doomed the "second wave".
At any rate, no evidence of any such work has ever been unearthed.
WereWolf, like Frankenstein and Dracula, lasted only three issues.
Trivia: Due to the fact they didn't use "Wolf Man", WereWolf wasn't a continuation of an existing title like Frankenstein and Dracula (both of which began their superhero versions with issue #2s), WereWolf runs #1-3, instead of #2-4 as the others do!
