Image Comics has released a few pages from their latest series, MOONSHINE #1. This series launch marks the first new project from writer Brian Azzarello and artist Eduardo Risso—the New York Times bestselling and Eisner Award winning creative team behind 100 Bullets.
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. 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.
Frank Miller will even be providing a variant cover for the first issue!
Take a look:
MOONSHINE #1 will hit comic book stores on Wednesday, October 5th.
