Moonstone Books – Feb Releases

The fine folks at Moonstone Books have given us an early look at their Feb ’11 releases and I have to say that this looks like a good batch of comics! The first is a new series Savage Beauty which seems like a modern take on the Phantom, but with two beautiful girls instead. Next we have more Zombies killing Cheerleaders… or do they! One I’m personally looking forward to is a reprint of the Vertigo series Angel Town, which I’m looking forward to checking out myself. The last one that caught my eye was Air Vixens. Hopefully the interior art is the same as the cover because I love that art style. Either way it’s caught my eye and will be checking it out.

Special “Retro Rollback Price”: $2.99 for 40 color pages!

Ripped from today’s world news comes a reimagining of the classic jungle girl genre debuting a new hero for the modern age! Join the Rae sisters, recent UCLA grads, as they travel across modern-day Africa defending the defenseless. Guided by the mysterious Mr. Eden, they assume the identity of a mythical goddess and reveal their Savage Beauty. Mike (The Phantom) Bullock presents a fresh new spin on the jungle girl genre, featuring real world conflicts in Africa and beyond.

*This over-sized premier issue also includes a Golden Age Sheena reprint, a look back at Jungle Girls with Michael “Robot 6” May and “lost art” from the proposed 1960 Raquel Welch/Sheena movie!

**GREAT INTRODUCTORY PRICE!***
In this one-shot flip issue, you get NEW stories from two of Moonstone’s hottest titles. Following a lead on the undead outbreaks plaguing 1877 America, reluctant agent Wade investigates rumors of an Indian curse with his partner, Flynn. They stumble into a grotesque massacre… but that’s just the beginning of the horror they’ll face. Who knew that these events would affect high school football players and cheerleaders over a century later!

ANGELTOWN: The Nate Hollis Investigations

Los Angeles is the birthplace of noir because the brighter the sunshine, the deeper the shadows and the more deadly the mischief that goes on in the dark. Angeltown: The Nate Hollis Investigations is a HC from Moonstone reprinting the Vertigo mini series in glorious black and white — the original critically praised sequential mystery featuring the cool, tough private eye’s frenzied search in the shadows for a pro hoopster wanted for murder in “Baller.”

**Additionally, Gary Phillips (Operator 5), has penned two original illustrated prose short stories for this volume; “Hollywood Killer,” wherein superhero pretenders prowling Hollywood Boulevard for tips are getting bumped off, and “King Cow,” about cattle, low-riders and babes with nazi tattoos.
