Brian Azzarello and Eduardo Risso reunite for Image Comics’ Moonshine

Brian Azzarello is one of comics’ top creators so I’m very interested in Moonshine, his latest project from Image Comics.

Moonshine reunites Azzarello with his 100 Bullets collaborator Eduardo Risso.

Here’s Image’s synopsis:

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.  

Here’s the first look at some of the covers and interior art.

Azzarello has been very consistent with his projects so even though Moonshine isn’t the typical superhero comic that would normally grab my attention, I’m intrigued. And Risso’s art is a great compliment for the tone of the series.

Moonshine #1 features a cover by Risso while Frank Miller provides a variant cover. Both arrive in comic book stores Oct. 5.
