Noir meets horror as small-time Vegas hustler Chris Dundee finds himself tangled in a web of danger and the occult. He's been on the wrong end of a pair of brass knuckles plenty of times, but this time he might be dealing with the devil himself.

Special extra-long first issue at regular price!
From the mind of VJ Boyd, co-executive producer of S.W.A.T. and producer of Justified, comes a fantastic new noir-ish tale!

    The Brazen Bull - Dave Robbins Nov 21, 2018

    Three priests walk into a bar. It is not the beginning of a joke, but rather an awesome shootout with serious consequences for all involved. It is also framed by an old man telling the story of love long ago. Read Full Review

    Horror DNA - James Ferguson Dec 4, 2018

    Night Moves strikes a perfect blend between noir and horror. It works on the principles of the former and pulls in some of the best aspects of the latter. This isn't a supernatural detective story, like Hellblazer or Criminal Macabre. This is a normal, everyday guy who just found himself in a sinister world lurking just beneath the criminal underbelly he is used to. Read Full Review

    GWW - Lee Gough Nov 21, 2018

    Night Moves isn't pretty and it's not attempting to be. It's lead character has more in common with Constantine and Frank Castle than that of Clark Kent. If you're wanting a new dark and thoughtful dive into the occult I can't recommend this first issue more. Read Full Review

    Night Moves #1 sets up the storyline to come. There's a lived in quality to the characters and the writing, which makes it easy for the reader to settle in. It's really important now that the next few issues take the ball and run ahead, and not get bogged down in more scene setting. There's a great deal to like with this opening issue, and I really hope it finds an appreciative audience. There's the potential here for something great. Read Full Review
