From writer Brian Azzarello and artist Eduardo Risso—the Eisner Award-winning creative team behind the crime classic, 100 Bullets—comes volumer one of a brutal new series that puts a horror twist on a classic gangster tale, MOONSHINE. The trade paperback of MOONSHINE, VOL. 1 will collect issues 1-6 of the series and is set to hit stores this May.
Set deep in Appalachia during Prohibition, 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, Hiram Holt. Lou figures it a milk run, but what he doesn’t figure is that Holt’s just as cunning and ruthless as any NYC crime boss. Not only will Holt do anything for his illicit booze operation, he’ll stop at nothing to protect a much darker, bloodier family secret.
MOONSHINE, VOL. 1 (ISBN: 978-1-5343-0064-4, Diamond Code FEB170696) will hit comic book stores on Wednesday, May 10th and in bookstores on Tuesday, May 16th.
