- But...

...every time I let the wolf free,

it was very hard to stop.

Drifting, wandering...

I wasn't looking for an answer,

because there wasn't one.

Of course, that was before I met Wild Joe.

- It's a pretty tough place to be,

ain't it, killer?

- I've seen tougher.

- Ah! I'm speakin' metaphorically, boy.

About life.

It's hard.

- It can be, I guess.

- Yep. Can be.


Life is like an onion,

that's what I say.

The more you peel it back,

the more it makes you cry.

Especially when you're afflicted.

You know, like...


- Holy shit.

- Mm-hmm!

What do you mean, you never knew?

Must've had some clue.

- Just tell me how to stop it.

- Stop it?

Why would you want to?

So you can be like them?


- What the hell, man?

- Yeah, you! Scum like you!

- What's your problem?

- Want to dance? My card's open.

Why would anyone want to be like that?

- I can't control it.

- Boy, you're not supposed to.

You're a predator, it's what you are.

Didn't your parents not teach you nothing?

- No, they, uh...

they didn't know.

- What, you're gonna tell me

you were adopted...?

- Yeah, that's right.

I was.

- I would have loved to see

the look on their faces

when you turned for the first time, mate.

"Oh, he's a monster!

He's gonna kill us!"

Hey, it's none of my business.

Your real folks,

bet they're from back east,

from the old part

of this pitiful new world.

- I thought you had to get bitten by one

to become one.

- You can do.

But, the bitten ones,

they're not pure,

they're just mutts.

But, the purebred ones,

like you and me,

we were born this way.

- There are others?

- You thought you were the only one

in the whole wide world?

Well, ain't that typical of youth.

- Where are they?

How do I find them?

- Why would I tell you?
