Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
The Wild West has always been the setting to examine what happens when humanity abandons its rules. And the werewolf is an ideal path to explore the mind of a person who loses all self-control. The natural connection between those two elements is only the starting point for this engaging, intricately crafted western horror series. As Colin MacGregor, a former Pinkerton's detective with a hidden past, arrives in the isolated town of Blest, Tex., his only goal is to catch a man with a price on his head. Soon he's hired to rescue a kidnapped girl, and events spiral into two more connected episodes of supernatural horror spread out across the landscape of the American West at the dawn of the industrial age. Gallaher adeptly layers elements from many mythologies to create a rich melting pot of mysticism matching the diversity of settlers in the towns where the stories take place. Ellis's strong artwork captures the mysterious, lawless atmosphere, rising to the occasion whenever the tale calls for the reader to be frightened or awed. (Oct.)

    The thrilling webcomic series comes to print!

    This volume collects the first three seasons of High Moon, which can currently be read for free at zudacomics.com. While the print volume has yet to materialize, the serialized story on zuda is simply beautiful, exciting, and extraordinary. The crisp plotting and fluid dialogue of Gallaher's couple with the rough and wild artwork of Ellis makes this something worth owning - especially for fans of the horror, western, or graphic novel genres.
