There are two sides to every story…and for the first time, Moonstone shows you them both!
Two different perspectives on the same wild west story action! Wyatt vs Cisco and Cisco vs Wyatt will ship on the same day!
They called them gunslingers when these mythic men rode the west over a century ago. Movies and dime novels gave them white hats and black hats, but the truth lies somewhere in between. On October 27th, 1880, Wyatt Earp arrested William “Curly Bill” Brocious for shooting the Tombstone town Marshal. But on the way to trial, some tell of a dangerous encounter with a mysterious outlaw called the Cisco Kid. Did the paths of these two legendary gunslingers cross somewhere in the southwest? If so, whose side of the story should we believe? Myth meets history in this fantastic Western showdown!

(13)978-1-933076-41-6A MOONSTONE WILD WEST EVENT!
Three western LEGENDS in three complete tales that will thrill Wild West fans everywhere!

Wyatt Earp is the town’s new Marshall, and it doesn’t take him long to get on the bad side of brutal cowboys used to doing things the outlaw way…and now only Doc Holliday and the Masterson brothers stand between Wyatt and a marker on his head!

Belle Starr recounts her life’s story. From debutante to debaucher, she’s a woman driven to the outlaw life by too much hunger and too many bad men. Moving from place to place, a life full of wandering and adventure, she hints at her most personal demon…and how she was forced to meet her past and either fight it or die trying!

The Cisco Kid is chasing the Brujera on a road that leads straight into a trap set by a Texas Ranger and his cunning Indian partner. But the road to fire and brimstone is full of distractions, from a mysterious and alluring woman whose motives are shrouded in dreams, to the father of his murdered girlfriend–a powerful Shaman who will step from the fires of the abyss to stake his own claim on Cisco’s life!
