Item description for Wet Moon Volume 1: Feeble Wanderings (Wet Moon) by Ross Campbell...
An unusually usual day-to-day story in the Deep South, set in the gothic, swampy southern town of Wet Moon, a place fraught with lousy love lives, teen angst, and shadowy rednecks. As Cleo Lovedrop heads off for college at the local art school, she's haunted by her melancholic past: a lost love, a lost child. Friends and enemies live their lives around her, as trouble and dissent brews amongst them: an unseen social assailant spreads slander about Cleo, she is forced to deal with her two brusque roommates, and discovers unsolved mysteries about the girl who lived in her room previously. Elsewhere, Trilby deals with unsettled emotional and sexual issues, and keeping her secret habits hidden from everyone. And Audrey comes to the realization that, despite all her efforts, she always causes her friends distress, while Fern, a peculiar, deformed girl who lives in an isolated mansion in the bayous, begins to notice Cleo and her friends. As the moon grows full and lunar rays shine down, lunacy and moon-calves run free. Goths, friendship, romance, sex, betrayal, gossip, cats, murder, guilt, a squirrel monkey, and all the terrible and wonderful things people do to each other.

Reviews - What do customers think about Wet Moon Volume 1: Feeble Wanderings (Wet Moon)?
Brilliantly executed and interesting to read Aug 18, 2008
The opening of the series, sets out the plot the characters, and covers more teenage just getting into college angst. Wonderfully executed, and in many ways true to life, outsiders often have the hardest time having much to do with society. Overall an very cool book to own and read, with characters that feel real at times (the rumor issue was brilliant, something that happens everywhere and at all places like work, and school), as well as what happens when it is finally your own life to live.
The plot is well executed, honestly for an opening of a series (there are now three in the series, all are worth picking up) this one was just jaw droopingly real. Although one has to wonder if that many piercings hurt in real life. Overall good book to pick up and read, this one will not disappoint if you love gothic troubled folks, who are just getting started on life, and just learning what it is they like, and don't like about it.
A good first entry into a nice series... Jul 6, 2008
I picked these books up purely because I was familiar with Ross Campbell's work in the Hopeless Savages series & liked what I'd seen. While the direction of Wet Moon has yet to truly assert itself, everything that's gone on so far has been interesting.
The series surrounds Cleo, a young girl who lives with her room mates & goes to a local college. Her friends are strange, alternative, and not just a little bit catty at times. (Sometimes you wonder which ones in the group really are friends & which ones are merely playing along with everyone else.) You (the reader) watch Cleo go through the process of her life which includes running from an ex-boyfriend, trying to track down someone who is posting horrible things about her, & going to goth bars for fun. There's also a few interesting side characters whose stories have yet to even be truly brushed upon.
I have to say I liked this book. It was cute, interesting, and contained lots of things I like in my comics. If all goes well in future volumes, I think this will be one I'll keep for a very long time.
Ross Cambell Awesome artist and Writer! Jul 19, 2006
One of the best books I've read this year. The other being the volume 2 to this. Very insightful and very realistic. I like both books A lot!
What an Artist!!! May 28, 2005
I have to say that this isn't my usual genre, but what a great story and artwork from Ross Campbell! He is so talented and I hope many other people will discover his works and become fans.
i'm so jealous... May 9, 2005
wet moon is every bit as good as i knew it would be. the storytelling, the illustrations, the character designs, the whole moodily feminine vibe...they're all just perfect. i've always been a big fan of your work and i look forward to the future installments. i'm a little worried that some of the girls may be in for some rough times, but i guess that just goes with the territory. i'm especially glad that you chose to eschew a more traditionally over-the-top first episode and focused instead on just casually introducing all the major players. it all felt just right.
don't make me wait too long until the next one, okay?
