The weird white wolf and his bloody fangs of farkas fear!
"Tales of the Ghost Rider" presents a non-series story from Ghost Rider #7, 1952, featuring a frontier werewolf, by way of Eastern Europe. The art is by Dick Ayers, signing his name as R. Ayers. Here's a factoid: the blonde babe in the story says that "farkas" means wolf. Did you know that? I didn't know that. "I've been attacked by a were-farkas." "Only a silver bullet will kill a were-farkas!" I'm sorry...it's just not the same. Just doesn't have that special ring to it, y'know?
