''Ferals'' is an ongoing, monthly horror comic published by Creator/AvatarPress, written by David Lapham and illustrated by Gabriel Andrade. Set in the small, remote town of Cypress in Minnesota, the story starts with the murder of police officer Dale Chesnutt's best friend. While the attack looks like the work of an animal, its brutality suggests a human cunning and malevolence. Dale quickly becomes entangled in the world of the ferals, a race of deadly and aggressive werewolves who have taken a supreme interest in him for reasons that have yet to be divulged.

* AllWomenAreLustful: Many women in the story, especially the women of Bergen, are depicted as considerably lustful with a penchant for rough sex. This phenomena may be due to being carriers of the Feral enzyme, but even women who were not carriers were shown as being eager for sex. Case and point with Pia.
* AlphaBitch/ TheVamp: A lot of females in the story, especially the women of Bergen, happen to be unpleasant, vicious, sexually manipulative, or brutal in some aspect. It would be easier to ask what introduced female in the story isn't this trope.

* {{Determinator}}: Not even an arm in a cast, a punctured lung, 8 broken ribs, and internal bleeding can keep Dale from escaping from a hospital, ''via the third story window.''

* InterplayOfSexAndViolence: This happens to be a large theme of the comic. Gratuitous sex is rampant and violence is a plenty. It's the whole modus operandi of the Ferals, especially in terms of romance.

* MoreThanMindControl: Women carrying the Feral disease can mentally influence the men that they have sex with obsess over them and follow their commands. The men under their thrall feel enraptured by the women's scent and memory and feel compared to search for them and violently protect them if needed. If the female dies, expect the man to go on a suicidal RoaringRampageOfRevenge.

* OurWerewolvesAreDifferent: The condition is called being Feral. It is a sexually transmitted disease, manifesting as a strange lump in uteruses. People with it are stronger, faster and fast healing. They possess greater tempers and lusts, their nails lengthen into sharp claws, enhanced sense of smell, and they tend to have dreams about hunting and the person who infected them. Women are only carriers of the condition, [[spoiler: unless they are born as full werewolves: a result of a full werewolf mating with a Feral carrier]].
** The second form is a more advanced version of the condition, which resemble full werewolves. Besides being violent, powerful, and ''smart'', they are stuck in wolf form, are vulnerable to traditional forms of injury, and have been described in universe to look like a wolf, a bear, and a gorilla all mashed into one. The resulting creature has humanoid elements, but moves like a wolf and leans more towards the dire wolf flavor of lycanthropy, albeit one on serious steroids. A feral becomes a full werewolf by drinking a werewolf's blood.
** Another variation is introduced in the second arc, which are smaller and smarter and possess more of a WolfMan appearance. They can be trained to a greater extent. This is due to drinking werewolf blood before turning completely Feral.
