Moonshine #26 gives us a show. The War is at a peak with the lead of The Holt Family deciding they want to take over the flow of money in the city and Boss Joe losing two of his prize gangsters. Tempest and Handsome Lou have their hands full.
Things are picking up the pace as two trusted members of Joe’s gang perish. One more violent than the other. To be fair though Coffee’s death is probably my favorite of the series so far as it is almost poetic the way he goes. Brian Azzarello and Eduardo Risso prove yet again that when they team up, no power in the verse can halt their progress.
The detectives seem to be catching on to what the monster in their midst is, and it remains to be seen what their plan will be to take it down. Tempest is stuck in the middle of the gangsters, now without Coffee at her side. And Lou finds himself at the mercy of the Holts yet again as they have the one thing that could kill Lou. Moonshine #26 is crazy to say the least.
Still none. The story flow is slow, but it is a slow burn that yields greatness. This is not a negative.
Moonshine #26 moves readers forward as the war is nigh, both sides have lost and gained. But who will end out on top and who will be left standing remains to be seen. Moonshine isn’t a series I would say jump into the middle of with no previous reading. It deserves to be read in full and I do recommend giving it the due it deserves and begin in Issue #1.
The next issue hints at some amazing things so I will look forward to seeing it all play out. See you next time!
