The Wolf in Underpants Gets Some Pants
From the Series The Wolf in Underpants
This season, underpants are in style!
The forest’s local wolf loves his comfy striped briefs. Still, when they become a fashion trend, the wolf needs a new way to stand out. He ditches his underpants and snatches some trousers from a scarecrow. But will he find out who he truly is without his favorite undies?
The fifth tale in the Eisner-nominated Wolf in Underpants series is a laugh-out-loud fable about identity, conformity, and being who you really are.

Author: Wilfrid Lupano
Wilfrid Lupano was born in Nantes, in the west of France, and spent most of his childhood in the southwestern city of Pau, France. He spent his childhood reading through his parents' comic book collection and enjoying role‑playing games. He studied literature and philosophy, receiving a degree in English, before he began to script comics. He has written numerous graphic novels for French readers, including the series Les Vieux Fourneaux (in English, The Old Geezers). With this series, Lupano and Paul Cauuet first developed the idea that would become The Wolf in Underpants. Lupano once again lives in Pau after spending several years in the city of Toulouse.
