PORTLAND, Ore. 10.21.2019 — The New York Times bestselling, Eisner Award winning creative team that redefined the crime genre with 100 Bullets—Brian Azzarello (Batman: Damned, Faithless) and artist Eduardo Risso—are back to kick off an all-new story arc of Moonshine from Image Comics this November.
With the help of his girlfriend Delia, “Torpedo” Lou Pirlo made it to New Orleans in search of a cure for his werewolf curse. In Moonshine #13 however readers learn that curse cures cost money, and Lou is a little “light” on scratch. But if there’s one thing Lou can do, it’s hustle. So he’s off to work his way from the crookedest gutters to the swankiest gambling dens in The Big Easy—along the way crossing paths with witches, warlocks, and the occasional zombie.
Set during Prohibition, and deep in the backwoods of Appalachia, Moonshine tells the story of Lou Pirlo, a city-slick “torpedo” sent from New York City to negotiate a deal with the best moonshiner in West Virginia, one Hiram Holt. What Lou doesn’t figure on is that Holt is just as cunning and ruthless as any NYC crime boss. Because not only will Holt do anything to protect his illicit booze operation, he’ll stop at nothing to protect a much darker family secret...a bloody, supernatural secret that must never see the light of day… or better still, the light of the full moon.
Moonshine #13 (Diamond Code SEP190054) will be available at comic book shops on Wednesday, November 13.
Moonshine #13 will also be available for purchase across many digital platforms, including the official Image Comics iOS app, Amazon Kindle, Apple Books, comiXology, and Google Play.

Select praise for Moonshine:
“Damn near perfect. 5 out of 5!” —Nerdist
“An engrossing, tightly plotted introduction to their latest creator-owned saga.” —IGN
“Shows Azzarello at what he does best, kicking ass and taking names… You won’t be disappointed.” —Fangoria
“When a blockbuster creative team reunites to work on a new project, the results are often magic. That is the case in Moonshine.” —TFAW.com blog
“As darkly beautiful and engrossing as you'd expect from Azzarello & Risso…with a kick as strong as the best corn liquor.” —Jason Aaron
"Azzarello and Risso go for the jugular with Moonshine's bloody tale of bootleggers, gangsters, and monsters both human and inhuman. But the silver bullet here is Risso's elegant use of color. Already a master of black and white, he somehow makes his art even creepier and more unsettling.” —Cliff Chiang
"The moody and tense storytelling Azzarello and Risso got famous for in 100 Bullets only increases with Moonshine. And with Risso doing his own coloring, his art has never been more seductive. More addictive than forbidden booze.” —Fábio Moon
"Moonshine delivers the goods, gets the readers hooked and craving for more. Azzarello and Risso did it again!” —Gabriel Bá
“Incredible art and writing from two of the best creators in comics. Plus two of my favourite subjects… booze and werewolves all in one book! A winner!” —Tula Lotay
“A dark and unrelenting story that will suck you into another time and place. It’s Miller's Crossing meets Deliverance. Azzarello and Risso bring the goods as they always do!” —Amy Chu
“Moonshine by Azzarello & Risso for Image Comics is a book that makes me wish I had thought of it first!! RECOMMENDED!” —Francisco Francavilla
