Shipping From Moonstone Books – Dec ’10

Oh yea, Voltron! We’re back with another bunch of Moonstone Books that are shipping in December. Moonstone is a smaller publisher and as such plans their release schedule far in advance. They’ve been kind enough to give us a sneak peak at what to expect for their December releases that will also appear in this weeks Previews Magazine. Remember with comics you’ll probably see these releases long before December so don’t sit and wait thinking you’ve got four months to pick up the releases. We’ll kick it off with some Voltron action!

Voltron: Defender of the Universe: Official Art Book
5finity Productions, in association with Moonstone and World Events Productions, presents the first ever official art book based on the classic animated series VOLTRON: Defender of the Universe!

An endearing blend of fantasy and mechanics, this legendary brand fused itself with social and pop-culture history. To many genre fans, VOLTRON was the original transforming robotic actions series and introduced an entire generation into the world of Japanese style animation.

A mix of official brand history, original artwork, fan memories, celebrity testimonials, and more!         This book proudly celebrates Voltron’s influence here today and beyond.
Voltron Art BookRocketMan: King of the Rocetmen #1

A Moonstone “Return of the Originals” event!

Years ago Saturday matinee audiences thrilled to the serialized adventures of the original jetpack wearing hero, Rocket Man. Blasting off the reels of those classic pulp
serials, a new Rocket Man is born! With the original hero dead, the secret of the rocket suit in jeopardy, and ruthless criminals closing in on the scientist guarding the technology, a young man must make the choice between a life of crime and the selfless sacrifice of a hero. The origin of the new Rocket Man starts here!

Plus an all new tale of the high-flying G-8!

Written by James Kuhoric (Dead Irons/Freddy vs Jason vs Ash), illustrated by Hannibal
King (Phantom: Unmasked), with covers by Chris Scalf (Star Wars Boba Fett).

Northern Guard #2

During the Golden Age of Comics, there was a group of colorful heroes up in the frozen North of Canada. But these stories have never seen print in the United States, and the characters have rarely been seen outside of Canada. Until now.
Moonstone’s ALL-CANADIAN creative team tells an all-new story, updating these characters, complete with added, never before seen reprints of classic tales!

Competition for dwindling water and power resources have led the world to the brink of war.  A mad Russian physicist attempts to impose his own peace on the belligerent nations, and sets off a device meant to disarm all the radioactive material on Earth. 
It was supposed to result in no more nuclear devices, peace for all time.
– instead it plunges most of the planet into a permanent blackout.  A new, electricity-free Dark Age, from which there seems to be no escape.
All except for a one long stretch of North America — a  hundred miles wide and three thousand miles long — through Alaska, across Canada, and down to Detroit through to New York City — the power is still working and the lights are still on.  And the Red Rogue’s device that set all this in motion, seems to have given the locals super-powers.
Northern Guard #2Phantom Detective #2

The mystery of the murdered scientists deepens as New York City is terrorized by creatures from another world. But if there’s one thing the Phantom Detective has learned throughout the years, it’s that nothing is ever what it seems…

Plus…an all NEW Green Ghost!
