Werewolves (and a whole lot more!) in the Old West

If you haven't been reading the web comic High Moon you need too, and SOON! Its great! With writing by David Gallaher and art by Steve Ellis, the official press release explains the series like this:

A grumbly, bounty-hunter, Matthew Macgregor, investigates a series of strange happenings in the dusty Texas town of Blest - where drought has brought famine and hardship to most of the town and surrounding ranches. Unfortunately, that's the least of the town's worries! While the summer heat pushes the mercury toward further unbearable degrees during the day, the nights are haunted by strange, unnatural creatures roaming the darkness. While Macgregor, a former Pinkerton agent, seeks to uncover the towns dark secrets, he tries desperately to keep his own hidden - secrets of a past steeped in witchcraft and the supernatural. When the sun sets it'll be a showdown at High Moon.

As the series progresses, MacGregor and the man he's chasing, Eddie Conroy, prove to be more than they seem. And by the end of the series, more than one man will take the name MacGregor. The entire series is available to view on the Zuda Comics site...and is definitely worth a sit down. It infuses Steampunk, Horror, Mystery, Intrigue, and colorful eccentric characters into a wonderful, exciting, delightful Weird Western stew!

Volume 3 just started, a perfect time to Jump on!

5 out of 5 Silver Bullets!
