Shipping in April – Moonstone Books

Ah April’s comics, their right around the corner. They’re not? Well here’s a bunch of releases from Moonstone Books regardless. Moonstone has a lot of pulp comics with a dash of horror. I have to say they’re really finding their nitch in the industry. If you’re interested in what their books are about check out our review for Phantom: Unmasked, Battle for L.A. the Return of the Originals and Captain Action – Winter Special for a view of their Pulp titles. Then we have a review for Savage Beauty which is set in modern day Africa. All are definitely worth a read if you’re looking for similar things to Marvel’s “The Twelve” or Dynamites “Project Superheroes”, so check them out. Otherwise, this is what Moonstone is offering in April.

The long-awaited return of the Green Hornet & Kato and their rolling arsenal the Black Beauty!
Back again with all-new stories! Moonstone is proud to present The Green Hornet Casefiles, our second anthology featuring all-new, original crime fiction tales of the man who hunts the biggest of all game, public enemies that even the FBI can’t reach!
On police records, the Green Hornet is actually a wanted criminal, a master manipulator, a crime boss who has his fingers in every pie. In reality, The Green Hornet is actually Britt Reid, owner-publisher of the Daily Sentinel. Alongside him rides his partner Kato, who is not only is a martial artist of unsurpassed prowess, but a skilled driver, and educated engineer as well. Their goal is to destroy crime from within by posing as criminals themselves!

Carl Kolchak was TV’s first paranormal investigator, albeit a reluctant one. His exploits have been the inspiration for the X-Files and beyond! Kolchak is a talented newspaper reporter who used to handle all of the big stories, but his reputation has taken a few hits over the years as his stories get to be more and more strange, surreal and unknown. He is a relentless truth-seeker, no matter how bizarre that truth may be. The fact that no one believes him, and that his stories rarely get printed anymore, only fuels his desire to get to the beating heart of the matter.
