    I know I could have posted this at DC forum since this is Vertigo book but then probably lots of cool folks would have missed this. ;)


    I can wholeheartedly recommend this book, it's a nice mixture of sci-fi and fantasy adventure but most importantly it's about the secrets of the human heart. Beautiful story with gorgeous watercolor art, buy it and read it if you haven't yet. :)

    Yeah but it's worth it - 12 original issues and Farewell Moonshadow, 464 pages of greatness. :)

    Yeah, it's one of the BEST things I have ever read....

    And I read it when it was originally released by Epic/Marvel.

    It was years ahead of its time.
    J.M. DeMatteis' best writings, in my opinion.

    :)

    I have the original Marvel/Epic TPB of MoonShadow, as well as the 12 original comics from 1985/86.

    It's one of the most beautiful human stories put to paper.
