The Compleat Moonshadow

A novel by

Jon J Muth is one of the few people drawing comic books who wholly deserves the name of "artist". In his still uncollected series Blood he, and his partner for Moonshadow John DeMatteis, produced one of the most affecting, intelligent, genre-redefining comics of the last 20 years. Blood seemed unsurpassable. But the literate, haunting, truly beautiful Moonshadow came along and comics themselves grew up a little. Michael Moorcock said of Moonshadow: "This is an outstanding graphic tale, told at a level of literary and visual sophistication which introduced new standards and aspirations to the genre". Muth's artwork is absolutely superb and unique--only Bill Sinkiewicz comes near--but DeMatteis' writing lives up to the job and he has penned here a sometimes heart-breaking tale of love and loss and growing up in, and leaving, an alien zoo! This is how all comics should be. --Mark Thwaite
