Title: Killing Moon # 1 Publisher: PigDog Press Script: Chris Denton Art/Cover: Bhuna Colour: Darren Stephens Lettering: Bolt-01 Consulting Editor: Richmond Clements Back Cover: Matthew Soffe Price: £3.50 Rating: 4 out of 5 stars Website: facebook.com/PigdogPress , twitter.com/pigdgpress Comments: Three Killing Moon assassins for hire are paid to assassinate a evil necromancer. Moses, McKie and Ingrid make up this team. The castle of the necromancer is a dark ominous site. You can tell evil resides within. Than we see Fred and Nobby two of the necromancer's guards and they are portrayed as just ordinary working Joe's. These guys are likable. The art illustrating the characters could use more detail. For the most it is well done. The walking dead are not overly frightening but they do convey their violent intentions easy enough. The action starts out fairly slow but steadily builds in intensity. They even take on a dragon of sorts. The necromancer adds a twist to the story that will catch you by surprise. All the pin-ups are beautifully rendered. This is a wonderfully entertaining tale of adventure of sword and sorcery that will leave you wanting more.

Ingrid is a great character. She gets her assignment and carries it out. Ingrid knows what she wants. This woman is a fighter. The art is sparse. The backgrounds some could use more to them. The art should be more focused as it portrays the people. The story is short here. We get a brief origin story for Ingrid. Plus we see her on a mission. One that is not all that exciting. She kills a guy the end. The pin-up of Castle Merstburg by Neil McClement is a beautiful dark rendered piece of art. Ingrid Stensgaard by David Frankum is illustrated in a pin-up as a strong and determined female. Lord Ruthven and Wolfmen by Chris Askham is another pin-up with a horrific appeal. The pin-ups are all wonderful pieces of art that you are sure to want to see.
