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.

A pet peeve of mine is when reviewers confuse a story that has elements in that should only be seen by adults with a story that's actually mature. Done lazily or improperly, gore, violence, and sexual content can be as much of a cop-out as saving the day with friendship or good guys inexplicably surviving impossible situations, just for a different demographic. 'Wolfsmund' has enough adult content to make 'Vinland Saga' look reserved and restrained, but lack of depth keeps it from being anything more than a decent guilty pleasure gore-fest.


The story is largely a hack-and-slash tale centering around a Hapsburg border fortress whose bailiff read more

So this will be my first review on this site, so please, don't judge me too hard :P

I recently bought the first volume as the synopsis and the covers looked gorgeous, and I can honestly say that after reading this first volume I can not wait to get more.

Story(8/10): This manga is set in the alps during the 14th century. Three small cantons which were previously Swiss has fallen under the Austrian empire command, which seek to control the trade in the area. They did this by implementing a guard station called "Wolfsmund" which restricts passage in to and out of the cantons.

First I'd like to say I'm providing a review fairly early. I've only read the first volume, and honestly this is more of my first impressions, but I'm mostly making this since there is NOT a single review as of December 29, 2014. That is ridiculous.

Story: 8/10
Notes: From volume 1 you quickly understand that the story is heading in a very interesting direction. Nearly every chapter gives a sort of episodic feel with a new character or a couple or group etc, that is attempting to pass through the gate. The bailiff is a sadistic tyrant, or as I'd put it, a psychopath. I could read more

As far as titles set in the Middle Ages (or whatever fantasy settings that mirror that period) are, there's no denying that the bar for many has been set incredibly high. Such a time period of course embodies the idea "life sure ain't fair, the fuck are you gonna do about it". These stories involving folks that have to flounder about to in order to overcome harsh environments and extreme oppression tend to offer plenty of room for character arcs paved in blood and guts. Stories like Vinland Saga, Berserk, Vagabond, etc all easily satisfy those looking for well-drawn violence and well-handled characters so read more
