Tony Trov & Johnny Zito: Digital Gurus

Photobucket


We had the best time chatting with Joey Esposito from CraveOnline last week.


CraveOnline: You mentioned your other comics - you've also got Moon Girl on Comixology. Was that an easier project to get off the ground because of your success with Zuda?

TT: Absolutely. Zuda is making waves and people are noticing.
JZ: It's great to branch out on other platforms. With Moon Girl we're on iPhones, and soon, iPads.

Moon Girl Meets LaMorte Sisters

Photobucket


It's not a hilarious Abbott and Costello set up. The Rhazzah, famous Moon Girl artist, has graced Tony and I with a LaMorte Sisters pin up of Maddie. Click the image for a closer look at our vampy new girl.

I love the Philly skyline as he's drawn it. He points the camera East toward Society Hill and Old City where the buildings are older; French Gothic through Art Deco.

Moon Girl Review on Comic Book Resources

Photobucket


Comic Book Resources gave us a nice write up about our new iPhone comic, Moon Girl.

"Super Heroes are tricky," Zito said. "We find they work best when re-contextualized to the 1940s – 60s. We took a lot of inspiration from 'Justice League: New Frontier' and 'Marvels.' 'Moon Girl, is based on a Golden Age superhero created by Gardner Fox for EC Comics in the 1940s. The copyright has slipped into public domain so we started there."

"It's 'The Dark Knight' meets 'Mad Men,'" Trov said when describing the book. "Clare is a Russian princess exiled to New York. When enemies from the past threaten her new life, the repressed Warrior Queen fights back. The media catches wind of her nocturnal crusade and christen her Moon Girl."

Zito added that Moon Girl is a "champion of the counter culture," and represents a movement of young people "fed up with the corporatism and conformity" of post World War II.

"The urban legends of Moon Girl inspire the 'Super Manifesto' - a post-human gospel," he said. "Activists subvert the establishment by dressing in bright Technicolor clothes and taking futuristic new names. Extremists turn to violence and terror, expecting to shock the system into change. Only Moon Girl stands between them and us, anarchy and order."
