THE FIRST VOLUME OF THE NEW ON-GOING SERIES
From writer, BRIAN AZZARELLO
and artist, EDUARDO RISSO — the Eisner award-winning creative team behind the crime classic, 100 Bullets — comes a brutal new series!
Set during Prohibition, and deep in the backwoods of Appalachia,
MOONSHINE #1 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. Lou figures it for milk run -- how hard could it be to set-up moonshine shipments from a few ass-backward hillbillies? What Lou doesn't figure on is that Holt is just as cunning as ruthless as any NYC crime boss and Lou is in way over his pin-striped head. 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.
Volume one of MOONSHINE reunites the acclaimed creative team that defined modern crime comics with 100 Bullets...and now puts a horror-twist on a classic gangster tale!

Moonshine, Volume 1 based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
A dark Prohibition-era comic collection, this is well-produced and the illustrations, though not always clear, are well-executed. A lot of seedy characters are involved in a conflict between New York gangsters and Virginia hillbillies producing the moonshine of the title. Into this mix is a were-monster creating havoc. With no endearing characters, this collection is worth a look, especially if you are a fan of Brian Azzarello's work. The story seems to come to a natural conclusion but this is Volume 1 so perhaps there is more to come.
