Introduction to Lumine, Werewolf Fantasy Webcomic
Webtoon has provided CBR with the following exclusive excerpt for Lumine Vol. first:
“In a world where wolves, witches and humans live side by side, Lumine is an unlucky wolf with nowhere to turn…until he meets the antisocial wizard boy Kody.
Lumine has a big and fluffy secret: he’s actually a werewolf, a rare and powerful type of magic thought to be extinct. Except…he can’t transform properly. When the bandits attacked the two boys, Lumine transformed into her other form, a small, fierce, and ridiculously cute puppy. How could he instill fear in their enemies like that?!
Impressed with the small but mighty puppy, Kody’s father hires Lumine to be his son’s bodyguard. High tension in the supernatural community; The witch children have gone missing and Kody’s father is very worried. Lumine is determined to both protect Kody and become his friend, but the witch secretly does everything in her power to keep her distance from Lumine.
Without realizing it, Lumine first entered a family filled with secrets of their own. Kody is haunted by the dark, and his father’s motivation to hire Lumine is not as simple as one might think. Things are far more dangerous than Lumine bargained for, and this is just the beginning…”
