One thought on “High Moon Vol. 1

  1. [Shai] The Bibliophage

    The Volume 1 of the High Moon comics series entitled Bullet Holes and Bite Marks which was created by David Gallaher and Steve Ellis, has an engrossing story Although, there are confusing parts such as that I thought the protagonist was the detective Matthew McGregor Then in the middle part of the story, the fugitive Eddie Conroy, which later became Edward McGregor, was after all the lead character Another cause for confusion is who Ester Kittel really is and what did his sons Frederick and Augu [...]

    I had the opportunity to read High Moon when it first appeared on Zuda Comics ten years ago I was pleasantly surprised to hear that Papercutz under their SuperGenius imprint was re releasing the book and even surprised to see it show up in my comiXology app yesterday.One of the things that stands out to me about this book is that it feels some how relevant to our modern times I was particularly struck by how vivid Steve Ellis art looked and the crispness of the lettering The story, written by D [...]

  3. J.D. Dehart

    This book is many things A western meets a horror story A science fiction story A graphic novel This was an enjoyable read and I particularly enjoyed the online format I received Recommended for readers looking for a high octane comic book experience.

  4. Samuel Sattin

    David Gallaher and Steve Ellis do to werewolves what Hideyuki Kikuchi and Yoshitaka Amano once did to vampires Through an act of wholly eerie transmogrification, the beloved Western is twisted into an occult multi genre epic, where Victorian horror is combined with a Fistful of Dollars and a dash of Warren Ellis s Planetary to create something entirely its own Ellis s art is gorgeous and his monsters are the stuff of nightmares, and yet the general mood throughout is triumphant mainly because al [...]

  5. Jamie Campbell

    Shapeshifters I absolutely adore books about shapechangers, skinwalkers, and especially werewolves While I do wish there were werewolves in this I counted only 5 , I was pleasently surprised with the art and the story I do with the quality of paper and the format were better, but it didn t affect my enjoyment of the story proper I downloaded the preview off of NoiseTrade Books and I m glad I did This was fun.

  6. Zachariah N. Allison

    Along with Edward M Erdelac s The Merkabah Rider, David Gallaher s High Moon ranks as one of the best written works in the weird western genre Beautifully illustrated by Steve Ellis, High Moon is a howling pun completely intended good read for anybody looking for a visually arresting graphic novel series.

  8. Jake Tobber

    Unique and powerfulke no graphic novel I have ever read A bounty hunter must wrestle werewolves and his own secrets to save a little girl in a town full of monsters This isn t a snack, this is a book you must savor Gallaher and Ellis put hundreds of little details into every page They are powerful storytellers who first came to my attention on Convergence from DC Comics This is an epic poem of visual language I was particularly struck by Steve Ellis command of his ink line and Gallaher s apparen [...]

  9. Mike Oates

    I wasn t expecting much from this book, which I had read on Zuda but lost track of, but having sat down with it and really poured over it, I was surprised by all of the subtle touches Gallaher and Ellis brought to this series The second chapter, in particular, asked some questions about race that I wasn t prepared to really think about Yes, the series has monsters gloriously rendered by Steve Ellis but there s emotion and drama here that I wasn t really expecting at all This was a Kindle Comixol [...]

  10. Ken Blume

    Honestly not sure which edition I should review, because I have loved this series since it first appeared with DC Comics I have all of the little mini comics, the first trade, every issue on comixology, been following it on Tapas AND got a copy of the hardcover and paperback at New York Comic Comic this year The book is AH MAZHING Loved the slipcase and the new backstory that helps explain some of the story Steve Ellis are is breath taking Gallaher s script feels like something out of Deadwood I [...]

  11. Ron Walker

    This was different, much European in presentation that their work on The Only Living Boy I wasn t expecting the quality of work here which is much darker and surreal, but this brought joy to a reader who was raised on American Westerns Very much enjoyed the dialogue here, in particular in the second chapter Ellis art is unlike anything I ve seen from American illustrators This version included a slipcase, like you d find on a DVD, which I found to be a lovely surprise.

  12. Betty Grabble

    Picked this up at New York Comic Con, along with Only Living Boy Volume 5, it very shiny A very different book than Only Living Boy, but goes to show you have versatile Steve Ellis can be when working with David Gallaher.

  13. Lane Jarvis

    Zuda creators Ellis and Gallaher do it again Special thanks to NetGalley for advance copy Fans of American Vampire will enjoy this look look at werewolves in the American west If you liked their work on Green Lantern or Only Living Boy, you will not be disappointed here.

  14. Ryne Barber

    At first, I thought High Moon was just about werewolves, and I was seriously wrong High Moon might contain werewolves, but it tackles so much in its short, three chapter graphic novel that it is almost offensive to assume that Gallaher and Ellis were making only a werewolf comic.High Moon was featured on the Zuda Comics website as the winner of an online competition Now, it has been made into graphic novel form through DC Comics One can actually read the entirety of the graphic novel through th [...]

  15. Sean Carlin

    Series scribe David Gallaher was kind enough to send me an uncorrected ARC of High Moon Vol 1 Bullet Holes and Bite Marks.I recall first hearing about this project when it won the monthly competition held by Zuda Comics, DC Comics now defunct webcomics imprint, about ten years ago It sounded right up my alley a weird Western that could essentially be encapsulated as the Man with No Name versus werewolves What a pitch I was, alas, burned out on comics at the time, and never got around to High Moo [...]

  16. Ciruli

    As a fan of High Moon since it debut on Zuda a decade ago, I can honestly saw that I m thrilled to have this brand new collected edition in my hands thanks to the fine folks at and their early shipping for Prime members Originally developed for the computer screen, High Moon can throw readers off at first with its layout As a printed artifact, it is presented in a monstrously clever slipcase and each page has a cinematic feel as though your were watching a Sergio Leone western Like any western, [...]

  17. Zoe So

    I enjoyed this book, which I read on Tapastic and grabbed a review copy of on NetGalley Can t wait for the second edition The art here is outstanding.

  18. Dune Levy

    I absolutely loved this I too thought that this would be a simple werewolf western and what I got seemed to be a modern version of the Cuchulain mythology There s a whole lot here to digest, but as a whole this is one of the most interesting comics I ve read in a long time Gallaher s dialogue is very precise maybe too much so and his words are perfectly illustrated by Ellis, who has a rich and lavish palette There seems to be a long game at play the unresolved puzzles and mysteries I have I thin [...]

  19. Amy Reed

    Just picked the kindle edition for my classroom based on the reviews and The Only Living Boy some of the content looks a little dark for my class, but I m otherwise loving what I m seeing here and think my kids who watch The Walking Dead with their parents will flip for this.

  20. Devann

    I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest reviewThe art, character designs, and general mood of this book are great I loved the vampire designs in particular However the story is kind of confusing on a lot of points, and I feel like we re missing certain background information we need to understand the characters It kind of seems like someone made a bunch of character designs and had certain scenes they wanted to draw and then tried to string those random moments together int [...]

  21. L. Lenz

    I am on board with anything supernatural, especially werewolves so I may be biased My father is a HUGE fan of westerns so growing up watching them was unavoidable, I can tell the writer is a huge fan of the genre as well He did an excellent job weaving these two very different genres together, the art is astounding I dig how this isn t a Werewolf story set in the old west, it is a Western about Werewolves It follows the format without being too dry or predictable.Definitely recommend

  22. Chad

    Steve Ellis provides some great moody art for this supernatural western, reminiscent of Dan Brereton Lots of creepy supernatural creatures abound within But the story is confusing in places I was often left with that Did I just skip a page feeling If they work on their storytelling this could be a 5 star book.Received a review copy from Papercutz and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

  23. Doctor Kaz

    The Zuda edition of this book did NOT do Steve Ellis art any justice and printed the pages WAY too dark It was nice to have the stories in one collection, but I took away a star for the book not having a decent binding and being waaaaay to small for my bookcase.

  24. Sean Rickets

    I have followed this book online for some time Good to see it collected.UPDATE November 2017 In the ten years since it s debut, I have had the opportunity to read this story in MULTIPLE formats This first review is for the DC Comics release of 2009 Of the three volumes I ve reviewed, this is the least robust with lousy paperstock, a tiny size, and a bad binding I didn t let those elements affect the review, which is based solely on the story alone The first volume of High Moon under DC Comics co [...]

  25. John Smith

    Absolutely splendid series Gallaher writes a taut thriller that requires and demands the attention of the reader Ellis work is absolutely a delight, using different palettes and techniques to create a vivid landscape Don t get me wrong this is pulp from start to finish, but if that s your thing, you NEED this book

  26. Lono

    I picked up this Zuda Comic s monthly online competition winner after reading a review describing it as being a mash up of Stephen King and Sergio Leone I enjoyed American Vampire, so I thought I would give this one a try Not quite what I hoped for David Gallaher s writing was not to my taste I actually re read portions of this to make sure I didn t miss something I didn t and it still struggled to make sense at times It felt like I was picking up volume 2 of a story where volume 1 introduced al [...]

  27. Doctor Kaz

    Delighted by the volume s I received from this morning I ve been waiting with baited breathe to get this book The slipcase on my hardcover is FAR sturdier than the paperback, but the contents inside the book are really outstanding here Steve Ellis art shines and the new lettering makes everything feel far crisper Nice story by Gallaher that moves at a brisk pace but leans in when it needs to.

  28. Doctor Kaz

    Delighted by the volume s I received from this morning I ve been waiting with baited breathe to get this book The slipcase on my paperback unraveled and became unglued somehow, don t know if can replace that or not, but the contents inside the book are really outstanding here Steve Ellis art shine and the new lettering makes everything feel far crisper Nice story by Gallaher that moves at a brisk pace but leans in when it needs to.
