From writer, BRIAN AZZARELLOand artist, EDUARDO RISSO -- the Eisner award-winning creative teambehind the crime classic, 100 Bullets -- comes a brutal newseries!

Set during Prohibition, and deep in the backwoods of Appalachia,MOONSHINE #1 tells the story of LOU PIRLO, a city-slick "torpedo" sent from NewYork City to negotiate a deal with the best moonshiner in West Virginia, oneHIRAM HOLT. Lou figures it for milk run -- how hard could it be to set-upmoonshine shipments from a few ass-backward hillbillies? What Lou doesn't figureon is that Holt is just as cunning as ruthless as any NYC crime boss and Lou isin way over his pin-striped head. Because not only will Holt do anything toprotect his illicit booze operation, he'll stop at nothing to protect a muchdarker family secret...a bloody, supernatural secret that must never see thelight of day...or better still, the light of the full moon.

Volume oneof MOONSHINE reunites the acclaimed creative team that defined modern crimecomics with 100 Bullets...and now puts a horror-twist on a classic gangstertale!

Published Reviews
Publisher's Weekly Review: "This Prohibition-era clash between New York mobsters and moonshiners from West Virginia is soaked in equal measures of hooch and blood. Long-time collaborators Azzarello and Risso (100 Bullets) reunite with panache for the story of a negotiation gone wrong and the violent consequences thereof. It is 1929 and "Handsome" Lou Pirlo has been given his first real assignment by his boss, Joe Masseria: go down to West Virginia and get the producer of some wonderful moonshine to supply Joe's organization. Hiram Holt, the bootlegger in question, isn't interested in a partnership, though, and he and his family try to send Lou on his way. Lou is enamored of the liquor and Hiram's foster daughter, Tempest, and doesn't want to suffer the consequences of failure, so he stays in the mountains. Joe sends reinforcements who turn the failed business deal into an extended gun battle. Lou also discovers that something savage lurks in the mountain woods, and the tale takes an unexpected turn. Risso's superb art relies on shadow and silhouette for drama, recalling newspaper strips of old such as Little Orphan Annie. It's a brilliantly told riff on the gangster tale.
