Coming this October from Brian Azzarello, Eduardo Risso, and Image Comics is the comic Moonshine. It’s a gangster tale with a horror twist!
The New York Time bestselling, Eisner Award winning creative team behind 100 Bullets have reunited for a story set during Prohibition. Deep in the backwoods of Appalachia, Moonshine tells the story of Lou Pirlo, sent from New York to negotiate a deal with the best moonshiner in West Virginia, one Hiram Holt. What Lou doesn’t figure on though, is that Holt is just as cunning and ruthless as he is because he’s not only protecting his illicit booze operation, he’s protecting a darker family secret… a supernatural secret that must never see the light of day… or better still, the light of a full moon…
“Like 100 Bullets, the high concept is a grabber, but the heart of the story is dealing with an extremely fractured ‘hero’. He’s one of the most complex characters I’ve written in a long time and I can’t wait to dig into his many sides… seedy or otherwise.” – Brian Azzarello
Moonshine #1 will hit comic book stores on Wednesday, October 5th, 2016 and will feature a variant cover by legendary comics creator, Frank Miller.
