Moonshine, Vol. 1 by Brian Azzarello
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Wow! This is awesome! I didn't even read what it was about before I started. I saw Brian Azzarello's name and knew it would good. Then that cover had me thinking 1930s, bootlegging, and gangsters. And that's what I got plus a whole lot more! The book is set in Appalachia and I love a tale of dirt-poor mountain folks, plus on top of that, there is a supernatural element and a fierce creature. Fantastic story! There is also a lot of violence with bodies slashed in half and heads decapitated aplenty. The book ends with a classic gangster shoot-out with a twist and we don't fully figure out what is going on with the beast. Would love to continue the series!
