Kill Wolfhead

Origami, Original Designs

Any fans of The Incal? It’s an amazing 1980’s comic series (with sequels into the 2010’s) by insane surrealist director Alejandro Jodorowsky. If I’ve got my stories straight, he had intended to adapt Frank Herbert’s Dune and had gotten quite a ways before losing financing. He wasn’t going to adapt it straight, and many of his new ideas he expanded and made into the Incal. The Incal somewhat inspired The Fifth Element, another insane and amazing project.

One of the seven most important characters in The Incal is Kill Wolfhead (my favourite character). He’s an animal person, with a wolf head (more dog really). He seems to be a character with a temper who holds a grudge, but this is subverted later. He’s actually one of the nicer characters and is a pretty good technician.

My Kill Wolfhead is, well, a bit too nice looking. One of the reasons he seems mean is his sort of menacing look. Mine doesn’t look menacing. So, yeah.

How can you not like Krypto, the Superdog? The whole idea really stretches the internal story logic of the Superman story, but it just works. Superman might doubt his purpose, fight himself for some reason, or be basically a different, super dark character, but a super dog is such a loyal and heroic symbol, Krypto feels more Superman than Superman.

This model was a bit difficult to get the dog and cape/crest with a colour change. He has a little tail too, but that’s a bit hard to see in these pictures. I think he came out ok, and I developed a pretty good nine tailed fox as an offshoot of him.
