As I'm going back and enhancing issue one I saw a scene that I felt was far too rushed and needed more exposition. There were also a couple panels that I wasn't happy with that I wanted give more attention to. So while this may look like a normal comic page, it's...read more
So part of my deal with Action Lab Comics is that each issue of Moon Hunters is now 32 pages instead of the normal 22. This is great for the story as it allows me to focus more on characters and expand the story so it feels much bigger and better. However it also...read more

ABOUT THE CREATOR
Hi. I’m Matthew Childers. I created Moon Hunters because I love fantasy and wanted to create a book that I thought you’d enjoy. I love to draw action, adventure, cool weird characters and monsters and creatures. So Moon Hunters is a dream come true. The main character of Lyria Two-Horns was modeled after my daughter, Lauren, who like Lyria is a bit of a spitfire. I also have an amazing wife named Christy and a son named Christopher, without whose support this book probably wouldn’t exist. In the past I have illustrated for Dynamite Comics, deCoubertin Books, and also illustrated books for an imprint I co-created called Adventures In Pulp.

Likes – Peanut butter sandwiches, sweet pickles, lemonade, Battlefield 1, Mysterious Universe, the beach
Dislikes – Broccoli, cauliflower, mushrooms, the sound of gum chewing, the smell of gum…and really anything gum-related
It’s the world building that is important here, and Childers has created a world that already seems bigger than this issue can contain. It’s a living, breathing thing that gives us the impression that, much like his protagonist, we’ve got a lot to learn about it. That’s one of the things that I like about this kind of tale. It lets us experience the world in the same way as the character. Even though they’ve lived in it for much longer than we have, they still have much to learn about “how things work.” This is all accomplished with a genuine subtlety: a stray comment here, a dodged assumption there – it’s really quite well done.Erik Cheski
