This comic sounded like a crazy trip of LUNAcy (get it) and it was.  Here is the concept…

In the year 12AD a group of Celtic Druids attempted to summon the Moon to Earth and bind it into human form, an eternal guardian to defend our isle from all who would do her wrong. 2000 years later and he’s still doing that job: suited, booted and ready to investigate any crime deemed too strange for the regular police. A detective story like no other, Moon is the tale of one astral body’s quest for revenge, justice and shandy!

The premise is simple and the humour was spot on. Moon himself looks great and I can truly say that this character could become iconic and run for years. I hope so as I am going to keep reading this. The leading man does not talk and has a small moon for a head so he uses body expressions a lot. Oh but he does laugh and when he does the ground shakes, literally. The artists have used lots of tricks in this book to make the best performance of Moon and it works so well.

The story starts in one time zone and then jumps to present day. There is a Men in Black vibe going on with a bit of Whedon and David Lynch thrown in for good measure.

The art and colours look great and the story is easy and funny with a contemporary feel. Already within issue 1 we have a plot that pulls the reader in and it has a great ending. So I urge you all to pick up this comic now and enjoy yourself.

Below is the zany trailer for the book
