Moon 3 Page 1 Pencils…. Evil Wears a Furry Face

Moon 3.1.1

So, it’s that time again. The third instalment of Moon is beginning to hove into view. With it is the introduction of a very special kind of evil. Revealed briefly in Moon 2, BunBun Warmheart is a villain that had everything going for him. Now his crimes against humanity mean not even his cute little face can get him off. Our hero, Moon and Shades will be facing this little bleeder directly. What will they find out? What will they glean from this little furry bastard?

This is very much the start of the first story arc for Moon. The introduction is over – now it’s all about the investigation! Moon and his new partner, Shades Rodriguez are about to start dog paddling in dangerous waters, and there be sharks there. Heavily armed, laser guided, furry faced sharks that want to bite their legs off. With guns. And things. Threats will come from directions you’d never expect. You have been warned.

Evil is back. And it’s sitting on a raised chair in an interrogation room at the heart of the Agency.

Why Buy Moon?

Moon 1 is now available to buy from this site (click here). It is the first part of many more Moons to come. Your copy will be individually numbered and marked as a first edition pushing the value of the book up should great things take place in Moon’s future. It’s the first book from Beyond the Bunker; of which there are already more in the pipe line. Its the first published work for Dan Thompson and Steve Penfold (excluding Steve’s Fallen Heroes work (ahem)). Its the summation of 2 years hard graft. You would be supporting the British comic industry – something both myself and Dan are very proud of – though we do accept cheques in dollars – and kick starting a newby independent comics company that hopes to represent the sharp end of indy (and small press) comic books. Its high quality (printed by our mates at UKomics) and its kick ass wicked. Those are the reasons I can think of for buying Moon 1.

Aside from all that – its the tale of the Moon arriving on earth to defend the British isles, but discovering, due to a botched, drunken Celtic ceremony that he is cursed to walk the earth with a Moon for a head. Working his way up through history without eating, drinking, talking or emoting facially Moon now walks the streets of 21st Century facing threats the usual constabulary are ill-equipped to deal with! At night he returns to his place in the sky – defying laws of physics and basic astronomy before returning back in the morning to tackle the amassing hordes of weird. A comedy, a buddy cop tale, a gripping insight into what the Moon does when he’s not in the sky. Don’t look to the sky, look to the streets. Its Moon!!
… and if that weren’t enough check out the pages in preview here on Monday…

What is Moon?

Curious as to what Moon is about? Take this handy handy Moon quiz and learn all you need to know about our cosmic protector.

Q1 What happens to the Moon during the day?

A) It is on the other side of the earth and thus not visible.

B) It visits other planets and laughs at their moons.

C) It grows a body and drives around London in a sports car, taking down the forces of international terrorism.

If you answered anything but C then RETURN TO SCHOOLING! You have bought into the lies perpetuated by world governments in a global conspiracy designed to stop you reading sweet comics about a cop with a Moon for a head!
In the year 42AD, a group of Celtic Druids attempted to summon the spirit of the Moon to Earth and bind it in the form of a lithe, feminine warrior with firm buttocks. They failed on almost all counts. Moon is a tall skinny guy with a big Moon where his head should be and all the grace of an ice skating Panda, but if you so much as think of inferring that he does not have buns of steel, he will orbit a stapler at your head! He works for a not-so-secret government agency imaginatively named “The Agency” with the remit of taking on criminals deemed too strange for conventional police.

Q2 Moon’s partner is:

A) A magical pony called Sparkledust Tenderhoof.

B) The Queen.

C) A violent, gun-slinging traffic warden called Shades Rodriguez who once caused over a million pounds worth of property damage just to issue a parking ticket.

If you once again failed to answer C then get your pony loving backside out of my country and stop defaming the name of her Majesty!
Shades Rodriguez is so badass that he once drank a smoothie made entirely from wazzed up Kiefer Sutherland films and beef. He thinks he is from Detroit but is really from Sheffield and he knows that sometimes you have to electrocute soft toys if you want the little bastards to tell you where the bombs are! Shades and Moon hate each other but only by learning to work together do they stand a chance of overcoming the dark, shoggothian legions that want to drag them into the bowels hell and do horrible things to their bottoms…they’re a bit like Ant & Dec in that regard.

Q3 Moon is a comic about:

A) The tear jerking search for true love in the cold, harsh world of 19th Century thimble making.

B) A what-if story that explores a world in which Superman was raised by marmots.

C) The facemeltingly cool adventures of a man with a Moon for a head and his lunatic partner as they attempt to avenge the death of Moon’s best friend by beating the snot out of anything too weird to tolerate on the streets of London, England!!

If you answered C then you have successfully spotted the formulaic pattern of this quiz. Now cosy up with your pet wolf, crack open an ice cold shandy and get ready for a Moonfist salad of evil-monster punching action! Do it! The Omega-Womb commands you!
