John Arcudi, the acclaimed writer of BPRD, The Mask, and a late 1990s run on DC’s Doom Patrol, is returning to Image Comics in early 2021 with a new horror series set during the American Civil War, The Hollywood Reporter can exclusively reveal.
Two Moons is named for its main character, a young Pawnee man known to some as Virgil Morris, who fights for the union during the Civil War — only to become confronted with something far more horrific than the combat he’s surrounded by. The series is illustrated by Marvel cover artist Valerio Giangiordano (Savage Avengers, Taskmaster).
“Two Moons is a book I’ve been trying to write for years,” Arcudi told THR. “It’s a horror/action story first and foremost, but it’s more than that for me and, I hope, for the reader. The complicated history of indigenous peoples during the 19th century was what inspired me to take this story on and we explore some of that through the eyes of a young Pawnee man as he grows to learn more about his place in the world. And Valerio Giangiordano is absolutely killing it on the art! Could not have asked for a better collaborator on this gorgeous book. I’m excited to see this finally get out of my head and into readers’ hands.”
In addition to providing interior artwork, Giangiordano also illustrates the first issue’s main cover, with Gerardo Zaffino providing the variant cover.
Two Moons launches digitally and in comic book stores Feb. 24. Below, three pages from the first issue, as well as Zaffino’s variant cover.
