A trio of Passyunk folks release a new graphic novel

Moon_Girl_CoverLooking for a little comic relief? A team of your fellow Passyunk-ers has you covered.

Artist Rahzzah and writers Tony Trov and Johnny Zito, all residents of the neighborhood, released a new graphic novel yesterday starring Moon Girl, a superheroine from the early 20th Century.

The trio first resurrected the character in 2010 on digital comics distributor comiXology (the rights for her fell into the public domain), and have since brought her back to the print realm.

You can buy the new book at South Philly Comics at 1840 E. Passyunk Ave. , where you’ll a get free Moon Girl button with purchase. Or you can get it through  South Fellini, the group’s homegrown publishing house, or via special-order at any comic shop (you’ll need the order code: NOV121284).

So what’s this Moon Girl all about? We’ll let her re-inventors tell you:

Masked vigilantes wage class warfare from the rooftops of 1950s New York. Claire is an exiled Russian Princess hiding in New York. When enemies from her old life resurface, the repressed Warrior Queen must fight back. Moon Girl becomes a champion of the counter culture and inspires others in this era of social revolution to be more-than-human. But in order to defeat Satana, Sugar Plum Faerie, Tiki Bob and the dangerous forces they represent, Moon Girl will have to overcome her own neurosis!

A moment of silence for Tiki Bob.
