Tristan Macgregor Spin-Off?

Over the last three weeks, I have gotten dozens e-mails in regards to a Tristan Macgregor / HIGH MOON spin-off series. The response to Tristan has simply been awesome - which is pretty rad. But, we've gotten so many requests that I thought I'd make this public announcement.

If you'd like to see Tristan in his own steampunk western spin-off series, send your request to - and let your voice be heard.

Young Raven progression

For those of you hankering for more High Moon, I decided to let out a few more sketches of things. Here is the progression of how Young Raven came to be. The first sketches date back to almost a year ago.....

Young Raven is meant to be a Cherokee character, so she is dressed in a version of a Cherokee raven costume. As she developed, I wanted her to have the black shining eyes of a Raven. So black the light is sucked into them. They glimmer with light from reflection. It's amazing that so much research can be distilled into as simple images as these...

"HIGH MOON is one of the many Zuda offerings to have received high praise all over the internet in the past. After having read it from start to finish, I can see why ..."

I just saw the new Ed Harris film "Apaloosa" the other day. It was a pretty decent western, it had all of the prerequisite western tropes, but it had a much different take on the relationships of the characters. Clint Eastwood used to have the enigmatic "Man with No Name" thing, but this one has a name and has feelings. It's kinda weird watching two hired lawmen talking about their feelings....

Overall, I liked it and it gave me a lot of inspiration for details in the visuals for High Moon. I sat and took notes in the theatre from things like details of clothing to wallpaper textures to vegetation and other stuff that if you don't focus on a little tends to make your book seem less and less a period piece.

The devil is in those details...

HIGH MOON: The Critics Take

It's been nearly two weeks since the dramatic conclusion of HIGH MOON, and now that the story has concluded, we have some real fantastic critiques from around the blogosphere.

The Webcomic Overlook
"High Moon emulates its Western forefathers by being sparse on words. Instead, it lets the art do the talking. Steve Ellis’ art is incredibly attractive, gritty and sleek at the same time. (He cites High Plains Drifter, Django, and El Topo as inspirations.) The attention to detail brings to life a secluded town where wooden buildings show signs of wear and where brothels look hazy and smoky. While the action scenes are some of the best you’ll ever see in a webcomic, High Moon can get downright elegant in its quieter moments." (read more)

"This is the first Zuda competition winner to begin as a regular strip and how David and Steve managed to keep to the pace of the updates without any noticeable loss of quality I'll never know. This strip sets a certain benchmark in quality that future contributors would do well to consider before they sling their scribbles in the direction of Zuda." (read more)

Kleefeld on Comics
For those who haven't read any of High Moon, it's essentially a Western with werewolves and vampires. That kind of description, though, belies the nuances of the story. Yes, we've got some all-out werewolf/vampire fight scenes. Yes, we've got the mandatory silver bullet "solution." We've also got the classic rough, Clint Eastwood style, loner hero character. All the tropes you'd expect in a mythical horror/Western. But they're blended together in a manner that, I think, combines to form something new and different. I have to admit, though, that I'm finding it difficult to explain some of those change-ups without revealing portions of the plot that would otherwise prove interesting story elements to those reading it for the first time. (read more)


If you haven't checked out the story, then you should. I like it because it's deceptively straightforward. You read the first installation and say, "Yeah, okay, I see where this is going." And it involves werewolves and very large revolvers, so you don't mind that. But as the story progresses it goes somewhere else, then goes three blocks west of there--and it's good. I'm almost sorry it's over in sixty pages, to be honest. I felt it might have could have been pulled out a bit longer in places. (read more)

Broken Frontier
Exceptionally well-realized, High Moon is certainly one of the most prolific winners of the Zuda contest, and it’s easy to see why. While there’s clearly an abundance of the supernatural around every corner, the creators never let it overburden the mystery at hand to find a lost little girl. Every character is so fantastically realized from concept to design to execution, that’s its hard not to get lost in the pages. The story does grow a bit too convoluted in the final act, it still packs an awesome twist in the end. Like all the webcomics reviewed so far, High Moon is highly recommended. (read more)

The HIGH MOON team would like to thank everyone for making this experience so incredible. It's been a blast. Steve, Scott, and I will be at the San Diego ComicCon this coming week, so if you are there, please come by and say 'hello'.

HIGH MOON: Pinkerton and Lincoln

On your left, Allan Pinkerton standing next to Abe Lincoln. If you've read this week's installment of HIGH MOON, it might make a little more sense.

HIGH MOON: James Bowie

The following information is cobbled from Wikipedia to aid in your enjoyment of this week's installment of HIGH MOON:

James "Jim" Bowie (April 10, 1796March 6, 1836), a nineteenth-century American pioneer and soldier, played a prominent role in the Texas Revolution, culminating in his death at the Battle of the Alamo. Countless stories of him as a fighter and frontiersman, both real and fictitious, have made him a legendary figure in Texas history.

Shortly after his marriage Bowie became fascinated with the story of the "lost" Los Almagres Mine, said to be west of San Antonio near the ruin of Santa Cruz de San Sabá Mission.[26]

After obtaining permission from the Mexican government to mount an expedition to search for the legendary silver mine, Bowie, his brother Rezin, and nine others set out for San Saba on November 2, 1831. Six miles from their goal, the group was ambushed. The citizens of San Antonio believed the members of the Bowie expedition must have perished, and his wife, Ursula Bowie began wearing widow's weeds.[54]

To the surprise of the town, the surviving members of the group returned to San Antonio on December 6.[54] Bowie's report of the expedition, written in Spanish, was printed in several newspapers, further establishing his reputation.[55]

After the initial report, Bowie never talked of his exploits again - despite his increasing fame.

Weekly Webcomic Round-Up

Good morning,

To start things off, I thought I'd take a moment to mention that HIGH MOON, Act III begins tomorrow night - and boy - is it a doozy! Be sure to check it out tomorrow night at sundown!

And now for the rest of the news:

So, that's it for now ...

Tuesday, May 6, 2008


The folks at WeeklyComicBookReview.Com took a look at HIGH MOON. This is just a little of what they had to say:

The story is well paced, grabbed my interest very quickly, and kept me turning the page. The protagonist is intriguing as is the nature of the man, Conroy, whom he is pursuing. The artwork by Steve Ellis is solid as well. The style of his art really suits the tale and is evocative of the hot and dusty setting where the story dwells. The highest compliment I can pay this comic is that by the end I found myself needing and wanting more. ... (Grade: A)

There's more to the review, so give it a read right here!

Free Comic Day and Iron Man

I don't know if this is appropriate to have on this blog but...

It was pretty cool to see the turn out for free comics day at Midtown Comics West in Manhattan. There wa a line outside down the street to get in. David and I were on a city wide drop off of free Zuda samplers to the cities finest comics stores and Midtown was the first on our list. We told the who we were and we skipped the line and gave our samplers to Gaul, one of the managers.

Gaul handed us a paper bag full of free comics. I've only read some so far, but my first impression are pretty positive. One of the things I've become particularly sensitive to is comics for kids. I have a five year old and he likes comics but it's hard to find ones that aren't filled with post modern jokes( none of which he gets...they seem mostly written for the parents) references to long ago stories(and so aren't complete stories in and of themselves) and are well written and drawn. There seems to be a feelings among a lot of creators(not all mind you) that taking the same story you would give to an adult and replace grown up superhero with a fuzzy animal in a spacesuit and you've got instant kid material. It's tougher than that.

It's one of those things you can know when you see it but it's hard to define. Kids don't understand most pop culture references...they don't get the humor or the reference...and even if they recognize the reference they don't get all. Irony comes with life experience. Also, writing that relies too heavily on irony and pop culture ref is poor writing, the writer using glyphs( meaning writing using symbols that pretend to be story elements but are just lifts from other sources used as shorthand thus debasing your own work as derivative); and nods and winks to tell a story.

Kids don't care about continuity...or realism. In my experience kids love free standing stories which have and end in the book (if you've ever read a comic to a five year old you will also know that trying to explain all of the continuity winks and the hanging storylines, you will understand the frustration the kid feels)

As a grown up who can't pick up all the titles from a given publisher to follow the continuity, I appreciate individual issues and complete stories as well, if I'm gonna plunk down my $3-$4 on a damn well better have some kind of a resolution at the end of it's flimsy 22 pages.

There seemed to be several things in the bag which satisfied the older reader in me and the young reader in my son....I haven't read them all yet.

Iron man was cool...distilled forty years of confusing often baroque storylines into a clean elegant origin story....which it seems is the essence of good comics movies...take tons of material and cherry pick the essence of the's almost four AM...I'm going to bed

Steve Ellis draws the NIGHT OWLS (plus news!)

Over at the Twin Comics Blog, Bobby Timony posted a sketch of Mindy Markus having tea with a werewolf - drawn by none other that Steve Ellis!

So go check it out ...

And if you are in the New York City area, you can see the Timony Twins talk on Tuesday at the Comic Book Club! It'll be awesome - and tickets are only $5!

Deleted Scenes

I've always been interested in deleted scenes - the material from your favorite film that never makes into the final cut of a movie. You know the stuff that just sits on the cutting room floor, until the DVD is eventual released.

When I wrote the outline for HIGH MOON, I tried to pack as much action and excitement into 60 screens as possible - but there are one or two bits (not even full scenes) that are in my original outline that never made it to the final cut of the series.

Why did I leave out this material?

Well ...

Although it was an action beat, the first sequence I had written did nothing to advance the plot and revealed nothing to the readers that they didn't already know. The sequence was just filler without consequence - and honestly - I don't want to waste our reader's time giving them something incidental to read. Readers invest their time into the strip - and I want to give them a good return on that invenstment.

The second sequence I deleted from the final screens was also a action bit. Steve and I went back and forth as to whether or not we'd include it. Sure, it might look really awesome - and be a really fun sequence to write - and it'd be a sequence with a whole lot of consequences - but as time went on, we both felt that it revealed too much information, way too soon. We are crafting a mystery/horror piece - and with any good horror piece - you need to leave some of it to the readers' imaginations.

I don't regret taking these bits out of the strip, and I think the story is stronger for it, but if you ever wanted to know about some of the stuff that hits our cutting room floor, now you know.

HIGH MOON: Voice Casting

This here is a picture of radio and television actor, Parley Baer, and he is the voice model of one of the characters in HIGH MOON: Deputy Jebidiah Garrett.

Parley Baer appeared in a slew of awesome radio and televison programs, including GUNSMOKE and YOURS TRULY, JOHNNY DOLLAR. As an on-camera performer, he was recognizable by both his voice and his paunchy appearance. He also voiced Ernie Keebler in the cookie commercials until 1997.

Jeb's voice is one of honesty, earnestness, and mild authority, which makes him the easiest character to write. Jeb might be simple, but his is no simpleton. He's not the best lawmen in the world, but might just be one of the most honest men in the Wicked, Wild West.

Tuesday, April 1, 2008


Yup. There's a new installment of HIGH MOON tonight!
