High Moon in a store near you from 30th September


high-moonI’ve just finished reading through my advanced copy of High Moon.  It’s superb.  Nothing beats holding a comic in your hands, as you turn from page to page without having to wait for a slow connection or fearing that the net will go down before you finish reading.  I’ve converted five of my friends to High Moon allready  (they devoured the book in nothing flat and vowed to buy their own copies) who previously had ignored my enthusiasm because they couldn’t face clicking through the pages.  Well what do you get for $15?  Everything you’ve read before in all its glory.  Ellis’ artwork is even more spectacular in the palm of your hand; the computer screen just doesn’t do it justice.  The relief for me as a fan of the title on the web is that they’ve changed nothing,  the layouts are exctly the same.  Often its tempting to rework things to fit the traditional comic format but the landscape 6″x9″ format allows the creative team to be true to the original.  This is one of my essential buys of 2009.

    I love this review only, only you’ve called it ‘High Noon’ twice in the write up, when it’s actually HIGH MOON. Still, I like this site a lot and this review is sharp.

  1. It’s so great to hear that you like the print version of High Moon. It was quite an adventure converting everything to print but I’m gratified to see it turned out so well. Thanks for the kind words!

  2. Thanks for the heads up Jude. That’s what I get for writing a review with less than 2 hours sleep in 24 hours.
