Dark Horse Comics has announced it has acquired the rights to Moonshadw, the first fully painted graphic novel, and will release in Summer 2019.

This definitive edition will include over 500 pages of content, along with an introduction by J.M. DeMatteis, as well as a bonus section featuring early concept work.

Moonshadow tells the story of a romantic, unreliable narrator who leads us through his interplanetary coming-of-age story, as an older Moonshadow recounts his strange birth in outer space, his escape from a deep-space zoo, and his struggles to survive in a war-torn universe.

Featuring gorgeous watercolor artwork by Eisner Award Winner and Caldecott Honoree Jon J Muth (Neil Gaiman’s The Sandman: The Wake), this influential “fairy tale for adults” includes the Farewell Moonshadow illustrated novella that gives fans a look at Moon’s life after his tumultuous, space-faring teens and misadventures with the miscreant Ira. Digitally restored and including all original cover work, this volume also includes illustrations by Kent Williams (Epic Illustrated, Havok, Wolverine: Meltdown) and Eisner Award Winner George Pratt (Wolverine: Netsuke, Epic Illustrated, Enemy Ace: War Idyll) and lettering by Kevin Nowlan (Lobster Johnson, The Goon: Noir, Doctor Strange). A sci-fi fantasy that Ray Bradbury called, “Beautiful, original, haunting,” and DeMatteis himself calls “Dickens’ David Copperfield meets Siddhartha in space.”

Moonshadow is scheduled to arrive in stores on June 12, 2019.
