Moonshine, a werewolves and prohibition comic from the 100 Bullets creative team of writer Brian Azzarello and artist Eduardo Risso, will return with a new story arc in November.
Oh wait, that should have read as the prohibition and werewolves and Appalachia comic. Anyway, the book will be back with Moonshine #13, which is due out Nov. 13. The new story arc will see the series protagonist reach New Orleans in search of a cure for being a werewolf. That cure, however, will require some cold hard cash, and so, as such, our hero will take to the gambling dens of the Big Easy to work a new hustle. There will also be witches, warlocks, and zombies.
All in all, this is exciting stuff.
The Moonshine returns press release from Image Comics can be found in its entirety below, followed by the cover for the next issue:
The New York Times bestselling, Eisner Award winning creative team that redefined the crime genre with 100 Bullets—Brian Azzarello (Batman: Damned, Faithless) and artist Eduardo Risso—are back to kick off an all-new story arc of Moonshine from Image Comics this November.
With the help of his girlfriend Delia, “Torpedo” Lou Pirlo made it to New Orleans in search of a cure for his werewolf curse. In Moonshine #13 however readers learn that curse cures cost money, and Lou is a little “light” on scratch. But if there’s one thing Lou can do, it’s hustle. So he’s off to work his way from the crookedest gutters to the swankiest gambling dens in The Big Easy—along the way crossing paths with witches, warlocks, and the occasional zombie.
Set during Prohibition, and deep in the backwoods of Appalachia, Moonshine tells the story of Lou Pirlo, a city-slick “torpedo” sent from New York City to negotiate a deal with the best moonshiner in West Virginia, one Hiram Holt. What Lou doesn’t figure on is that Holt is just as cunning and ruthless as any NYC crime boss. Because not only will Holt do anything to protect his illicit booze operation, he’ll stop at nothing to protect a much darker family secret…a bloody, supernatural secret that must never see the light of day… or better still, the light of the full moon.
Moonshine #13 (Diamond Code SEP190054) will be available at comic book shops on Wednesday, November 13.
