Wolfsmund is a dark historical manga set in the early 14th century of Europe (Switzerland). The story revolves around the eponymous fortress in the St. Gotthard Pass which is ruled by a sadistic tyrant. Each chapter deals with characters who for some reason have to cross the pass and who end up getting interrogated by the tyrant.

What sets this manga apart is the fact that there's rarely a happy ending for our protagonists. The author pulls no punches to show us just how brutal and inhuman the Middle Ages really were.

Wolfsmund was published in English by Vertical Inc. from July 2, 2013 to July 25, 2017.

It carries a sense of freshness at the start, albeit sooner or later moves onto a fixed trajectory - the kind that is predictable in its uncertainty. The initial shock slowly diminishes over the course of this work, even more so upon realization that characters are basically cannon fodder for author's own bias.

It does contain a certain dose of realism and very much stays loyal to the period which it represents. It is evident author did a meticulous research on medieval times. However, that same realism quickly disappears in close quarter scenes where temporary main characters receive a "supernatural" boost in their skills. Cheap read more

Woldmund is an amazing, short(37chapters), fast paced and historically accurate manga.

It has bloodshed, lots of gore(which is NOT gratuitous, it is rooted in history). Some seriously disturbing scenes, some amazing war tactics, and lots of gruesome deaths. It is not a mindless action manga. It is a war manga about the cruelties in medieval Europe and the fight for independence of Swiss people.

Story. 8/10
Wolfsmund is German for Wolf’s mouth. Why this name?
Well, this story is set in Europe. Between Germany and Italy lie 3 cantons/states called Uri, Schwyz and Unterwalden. The mountain people here are oppressed and want freedom.
And the pathway between read more

Wolfsmund is not a story you'll see very often and thus is it definitely not a manga for everyone but if gore and cruelty is your cup of tea then this story is something for you.

story: 6.5
Wolfsmund definitely does not exceed in its storytelling nor is it what the manga is really about. But the existing story isn't so bad that it would a reason to not read it. The story goes as follows:
It's the mid 14th century, Switzerland. We follow a set of main characters who encounter a border settlement, Wolfsmund. Our main characters often don't have the papers to cross border en often read more

1). Introduction:

Wolfsmund is a fictional history that revolves around Switzerland and its early ages where it was divided into 3 rural communes, Uri, Schwyz, and Unterwalden. The story is mainly about the Gotthard Pass that connects Switzerland to other countries and is ruled by a tyrant. The story is about fighting for freedom against oppressors. The story has historically valid names for places and most people but also has some folklore and fictional part to make it a dark history manga

2). Summary of Likes & Dislikes:

Wolfsmund belongs to one of that rare historical manga genre that has more actual history but enough fiction to make read more
