Farewell, Moonshadow

    (Vertigo, 1997)
™ and © 1997 J.M. DeMatteis and Jon J. Muth

This sequel to J.M. DeMatteis and Jon J. Muth’s limited series about a starry-eyed, Romantic traveler finds an elderly Moonshadow reflecting on his experiences in “a town built of Memory, Innocence, and a Joy infrequently glimpsed in long years of wandering.“ We learn of a time when he settled down, opened a tinker’s shop, married the beautiful Bettina, fathered four children—Mia, Charles, Charlotte, and Katherine, found himself occasionally tortured by dreams, and yearned at times for the secrets that the fat, silver moon seemed to keep from him.

Farewell, Moonshadow is a beautiful graphic novel—a worthy sequel to the original series. DeMatteis’s prose is as gorgeous and haunting as Muth’s painted artwork.
