Transported to a Dark Moon and hunted by aliens, how will Dante and the other survivors stay alive on Dark Moon?

A small group of survivors are able to teleport away from a disaster on Earth. But their problems are just beginning as they have no way back, and find out they are being hunted by aliens.

An exciting new horror comic with a very unique soundtrack!!!

Sci fi + horror is a great combination. Art complements the story's tone well!

Love this soundtrack and I love your art style! The grey and dim colours really make brighter colours pop. I also like the use of the full pages to let me enjoy that art better! It would be great though to make the time skips less disjointed at times, but its only a minor problem.

Dark Moon is the best Indie we've read this year. It has a lot of suspense and honestly, it scared us for a bit. We really liked the art, its really dark and even though it might look like a Concept art, it still looks great. We're looking forward to read the next issues. Dark Moon might be the comic that can help us learn a few things to improve our Story-Telling and Art Style.

Thanks again to everyone that's left positive comments and constructive criticism on our page!  We are very excited to have Episode #2 almost ready to release, it comes out on June 18th!

We would have given up long ago if it wasn't from the support of our friends and fans!  Always feel free to get in touch!

The artwork is great and the story intriguing, but please, please, take some time to work on the lettering — it's pretty horrible and lets the rest of the project down.

Jim, this is a great point...  we are new to comics, coming from other art disciplines, and this was partly oversight, and partly because of working with people we didn't know.  We have now found a veteran letterer to work with that does amazing work, and are extremely excited about this!  We also are planning on re-lettering this episode, and fixing a few other of our rookie mistakes, and offer this to better match the rest of the series going forward.

We really appreciate this comment as we are learning as we go, and want to make something truly special!

This is a very interesting and well set-up story! The bubbles could be more transparent and more apostrophes used in the contractions, but overall, a great start! Good job, sir! :D

Thanks for the positive comments everyone!  Neither the artist or I have ever created a comic before, much less a motion book comic, but it felt like the right medium for us to tell this story!  It will take us several months to make issue #2, but it is coming, and the story gets better from here!  

Thanks also to Madefire and DevianART for their assistance during the creation of this!  Both companies provided excellent support!
