Moon Girl Collection From Red5 Comics
Masked vigilantes wage class warfare from the roof tops of 1950’s 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!

Moon Girl is a golden age character created by Gardner Fox and Sheldon Moldoff for EC Comics. This graphic novel is a re-imagining/re-boot of those ideas. Instead of updating Moon Girl into the modern day, we’ve recontextualized the character into her 1950’s origin. The character faces the actual culture that modern superhero comics have descended from; pop-psychoanalysis, drug use, immigration, Cold War paranoia and commercialism.
