Moonshine #25 is a roller coaster ride to say the least. Handsome Lou is dealt a hand of chaos and it remains to be seen if he truly is up to the task when a war for NYC is happening between the rivals of The Holt Family and Boss Joe. Let’s get messy.
I’d Rather Go Blind
The gangs are each gearing up for a war to rival all others. But the gangs aren’t the only ones with something on the line. Handsome Lou and Tempest are at odds as well. Nothing stays simple forever, and Lou’s life gets more complicated as Delia shows up at his door.
The meeting with Delia doesn’t go according to plan. Lou tells her that there is someone else and tries to do right by Delia. She equips him with a weapon and he tells her to give him some time to make all things right. But Lou is the one who knows that he doesn’t plan on seeing her again while breath is still in his body. The Holts have already made their big move and chaos is on the horizon.
The best laid plans of mice and monsters…
The artwork is so consistently wonderful and draws readers inside the world of Moonshine until they beg to never leave. Eduardo Risso, it seems, has made a deal with the devil herself in order to bring readers into the world that Brian Azzarello has written. Moonshine #25 is an excellent example of how they not only have come back in the story with Delia reappearing but also with Lou just wanting to do the honorable thing.
The suspense is high, and I cannot wait to see what comes next.
If you aren’t reading this series, you absolutely should be. It is a master class of suspense and noir writing in all the best ways.
