Moonshine is back and issue #23 gives all of the joy and grit that was expected. In the days of prohibition, with a flare for the supernatural, is where Moonshine lives. When last we left off, Tempest was sowing oats with the Boss and his men as an in demand lounge singer. Lou has been dealing with problems of his own, murders, and Eliot Ness.
This issue lands us in the middle of a series set up, and all roads are leading back around to Hiram Holt. But while Lou’s intentions are clear, Tempest has the ear of Joe, and her motives are unknown. While Tempest is enjoying this new life she has carved for herself, something is missing, and time will tell what tricks she has up her sleeve. Meanwhile, the bodies are still stacking up and Ness is hot to find the murderer.
It was really nice to dive back into the world of Moonshine. While this issue doesn’t move the story forward too much more, there are still moments that are really nice to see. We get to see that Tempest is charming her way, not only with Joe, but also his right hand man. Also, the moment on the dock with her and Lou was wonderful. The writing and art by Brian Azzarello and Eduardo Risso still shine with the opening panels being some of my favorites so far this series.
I look forward for what is to come next for Moonshine. The stage has been set for Tempest Holt and what comes next in her journey. How Lou fits in and whether their paths will cross with Ness remains to be seen. I know I look forward to finding out just who it is that is leaving the trail of corpses.
