Moonbeams, Death Dreams
Story by David J. Heyer Art by Lou Manna Lettering by Jaymes Reed
David Heyer’s dark fable of a very bad upbringing and its very bad repercussions makes for a modern gangster noir full of volatile flair, chronicling the psychotic savagery of Al Klinger’s murderous rampage through life. There’s a disconcerting beauty at the heart of all the carnage, thanks to Lou Manna’s stark artwork and occasional splashes of claret across the panels.
Its monochromatic squalor suggests shades of Will Eisner’s groundbreaking graphic novel A
Contract With God. But it’s not long before the plot’s fangs fully puncture the domestic disharmony, and everything goes a bit cardiacarrest. This book has been released as the showpiece for Heyer’s new independent self-publishing house, and the stable are constantly on the lookout for new talent. Get in touch with them over at
