Moon Girl has had a long life. One of the pioneering titles from Red 5 Comics in this new digital world we were entering. The 5 issue mini series faltered and then returned with a bang to finish the story.
So now you can get all 5 issues of Moon Girl on Comixology and from Red 5 Comics.
And what a story – with some excellent art pieces and driven storytelling you get something that you would not normally expect from the medium. Darkness, heroes, mind control are all here, but the way they are set you get drawn into the darker side.
Flashbacks to the Russian revolution and beyond are also here and make this a deep story which does well to be confined within four issues.
Masked vigilantes wage class warfare from the roof tops of 1950′s New York; it’s The Dark Knight meets Mad Men. Clare is an exiled Russian Princess hiding in New York. When enemies from her old life resurface, the repressed Warrior Queen must fight back. Moon Girl becomes a champion of the counter culture and inspires others in this era of social revolution to be more-than-human. But in order to defeat Satana, Sugar Plum Fairy, Tiki Bob and the dangerous forces they represent, Moon Girl will have to overcome her own neurosis!Read the Comic POPMatters says is Destined to be a Classic.
If you picked this story up in the early days I recommend you pick up the final issue and re-read all of them – its a lot of fun!
