    I had a conversation with my husband about this book last night after I finished it. Mostly, we have no idea WHY we like this series. It's about the really, truly mundane activities of a bunch of emo-goth-punk college kids who are trying to figure out relationships (gay, straight and bi), friendships, life in general... It's really teen-angsty and, other than the GORGEOUS artwork, I have absolutely no idea why I like it. But I do.

It's really teen-angsty and, other than the GORGEOUS artwork, I have absolutely no idea why I like it. But I do. In this, the 3rd volume of Wet Moon, we learn a bit more about Mara, who has mostly been clingy and angry and annoying in the first two books, but we understand her a lot better in this book. I started cheering for her to go out and find some new people to hang out with because her friends clearly don't give a shit about her. We also see the progression of a relationship between Cleo and Myrtle (and some scary tendencies Myrtle has that Cleo doesn't know about yet). Penny struggles with some personal issues (and possibly betrays her sister tremendously), and Fern appears to have fallen in love with someone but is having a hard time expressing it. Trilby is just as big a dork as ever and I totally love her for it. I liked it just as much as - and maybe more than - the first two books, and as always, it's a lot of fun to look at!

    hate to say it, but this book is no where as enjoyable as the first or even the second book. the art has developed from it's simple black/gray/white core to something more experimental. the boobs are bigger and the characters eyes have become so large and doe-y that i am now reading around them. hopefully book 4 will not progress similarly. hate to say it, but this book is no where as enjoyable as the first or even the second book. the art has developed from it's simple black/gray/white core to something more experimental. the boobs are bigger and the characters eyes have become so large and doe-y that i am now reading around them. hopefully book 4 will not progress similarly.

    So i Kind of hate the unexplained change of art. Cleo's eye's are for some reason three times larger . and it kind of throws her off the page since she is the only one who seemed to have a change in design. i think is crap. but the story progresses rather well.

    Still a fantastic study in the development of a creator. Also a super slowburn story that is oddly hooking for me. Some artistic changes didn't gel with me, but overall, really interesting work. Definitely continuing. Still a fantastic study in the development of a creator. Also a super slowburn story that is oddly hooking for me.

    RATING: 1,5 stars Once again the art changed drastically and I could barely stay on top of which character was which because of the changed up character designs. I can understand subtle changes that happen over time as the artist gains more skill, but this is ridiculous. There's no consistency with the art and you could argue it's drawn by completely different people in each volume. The story is still going nowhere. There's the same sinister feel with no actual pay off as with the previous volumes, RATING: 1,5 stars Once again the art changed drastically and I could barely stay on top of which character was which because of the changed up character designs.

There's the same sinister feel with no actual pay off as with the previous volumes, but mostly the volume revolves around relationship drama. Also, all the characters except for one seem to be completely impervious to character development. I can't discern any kind of character arc for any of these characters. I'm not going to read any more volumes after this.

    Finally the story is starting to go somewhere, but it has been an extremely slow build up with a lot of teenage angst and melodrama to wade through. The main character Cleo's eyes were drawn much larger than any other person, and it was a huge jarring change from the first two books. I personally don't like the style change because it makes her look like a bug or an alien, and she is suddenly seperated from the rest of the characters in an unsettling way. Why are all these kids so obnoxious? Finally the story is starting to go somewhere, but it has been an extremely slow build up with a lot of teenage angst and melodrama to wade through.

    The best volume yet. Funny how I started out hating the series and now am really liking it and can't wait to read the next book. The only thing i didn't like about this one is how Campbell changed Cleo's look so she has such big eyes now. The best volume yet.

    I'm not crazy about the change in drawing style for Cleo but I like the refined lines of Trilby more here. I'm not crazy about the change in drawing style for Cleo but I like the refined lines of Trilby more here.

    Huge and wonderful leap forward in terms of both storytelling and visual style. Campbell writes in the afterword about how a lot of people hated this book and its new style, but I don't mind stylization, especially when it means the characters are more visually distinct from each other. The whole story feels like it's starting to coalesce. Huge and wonderful leap forward in terms of both storytelling and visual style.

    Cleo’s romance with the girl next door has been simmering underneath the surface. I enjoyed Cleos subtle exploration of her feelings in this volume.

    Continuing the narrative from the first two volumes, Feeble Wanderings and Unseen Feet , this book builds on the existing character drama of Cleo Lovedrop and her circle of friends and acquaintances in the Southern town of Wet Moon. And while it is this drama that is front and centre, some of the plot elements that have been planted along the way are now also starting to bear fruit, with this volume ending on a big reveal to be sure.

    Before I read this book, I was incredibly disappointed about the artist's decision to drastically change the appearance of Cleo. However, after reading his explanation on his deviant art account, I was reassured and respected his decision.

However, after reading his explanation on his deviant art account, I was reassured and respected his decision. (mooncalfe at deviant art, if you're interested) After reading the book, I found that I enjoyed it even more than the other books in the series. My reaction to the change in Cleo's appearance was actually positive. I sort of miss her smaller, expressive eyes, but there is a whole new level of character that is portrayed in her countance now. She seems I can't put my finger on it...(heroic? Ha ha). Most of the characters are awesome in their depth and Cleo isn't the only one who has had an appearance change. I have to say, it's for the better. It breathes energy into the artist's story. Mara's character has a couple of cool pages where you can get a sense of who she really is and that she's growing and changing as a person. The same, of course, can be said for Cleo and Trilby has some of the best scenes in the book. Vol. 3 is one that I "felt" good about, more than anything else. There ware two gross parts though that I cringed at and if you have a weak stomach or are easily offended, this book isn't for you. But it emulates life in a way that I have never seen before. Ross does well-rounded believable people just about better than anyone in comics today, though you might have to be a one-time outcast to understand it. There are also a couple superflueous "pose" pages and the cover with Mara wasn't really to my taste. But overall? Very cool.

    i think i've probably mentioned this series before; i know i've done lengthy appreciations elsewhere on Books 1 & 2. morgan made me sit down and read Book 1 once, sternly, that's what did it. it's beautifully drawn and very nicely written, about a goth girl who's awkward and shy, in a community college, and the series is (i think) about her coming of age, like a butterfly very gradually emerging from a cocoon. the series doesn't seem very ambitious at first glance, until you realize that the ton i think i've probably mentioned this series before; i know i've done lengthy appreciations elsewhere on Books 1 & 2. morgan made me sit down and read Book 1 once, sternly, that's what did it. it's beautifully drawn and very nicely written, about a goth girl who's awkward and shy, in a community college, and the series is (i think) about her coming of age, like a butterfly very gradually emerging from a cocoon. the series doesn't seem very ambitious at first glance, until you realize that the tone is perfect, and by that time it feels so real that you recognize every bit of every one of the characters, from their petty flaws to their hopes and dreams. and root for them all. and after that they're all so real, that wall dissolves utterly between the playgoer and the play. which is odd, since i have nothing at all in common with any of them, except for that little thing about all being human. 6 books, dunno if that's all or if it's still in progress, but i have to stop after every one for a year or more just to savor. delicate, all nuance, all the detail exactly right, and altogether kind of a tiny, modest, perfect thing.

    First read in 2011, reading again for the 3rd time now! The art style had changed a little for volume 3, which took me a little while to get used to. It wasn't quite as realistic which I found a bit disappointing but there were still moments of absolute brilliance (including the perfectly captured goth couple dancing).

Trilby got a borg tattoo that she was trying to pass of as tribal, it was hilarious! And the character whose the most sad, Mara, started writing an LJ! The extracts were fantastic. Cleo finally got together with Myrtle, though Myrtle appears to be a bit psychotic which is worrying. It was the longest of the three volumes so far. Mysterious white trash hick girl finally got to speak, and seems to be less scary now. I'm a little sad that there are only two more volumes in this series. At the rate I'm going I'll have finished it in a couple weeks. Is definitely one of my favourite comic stories I've read this year.

    Main character STILL the most annoying character of them all. Cleo can easily be the most annoyingly miserable, dramatic for no reason, cringe-worthy, dumb-decision-taking, chain-smoking little piece of shit you've ever read about. Other than that, the rest of it is fun, and I think I'm mainly reading this for Trilby and her adventures, I'd gladly read a comic just about her.

If not, then look at the artwork, cuz it might be your shit as well!

    Another amazing instalment and things are getting very, very interesting. Cleo’s new girlfriend has a very dark, homicidal side and has begun to express extreme jealously towards anyone that she perceives stands in the way between herself and Cleo.

Trilby is fast becoming my favourite character as she reveals her super nerdy side, and gets a Borg tattoo. Once again the artwork is stunning, and I am pleased to see a lot more sexy scenes and cute outfits than the last two instalments. The plot is also becoming increasingly involved as we finally meet Fall and gain a little more insight into Penny’s love life. I can’t wait to read the next novel.

    This really is sort of a goth version of Love and Rockets in some ways. We have a fairly large, mainly female cast and the stories focus on their relationships with others and each other. There are hints of darker things, but them remain just hints. Ross Campbell draws wonderfully hot goth women, but, unlike some comic book artists, he doesn't draw just one body type. His women look and feel real. This is good stuff! This really is sort of a goth version of Love and Rockets in some ways.

    The art style is changing, I really don't like the enlarged anime-style eyes he's started doing but the storyline has started picking up. I like seeing characters start to flesh out and I love Trilby.

    I didn't like the changes he made in the looks of the characters in this one, especially in the main character. The art was one of the things that attracted me to these, so I'm a little disappointed. I'll keep reading for the compelling alternative-yet-mundane storyline, though.

    Maybe the new eyes are part of a new, faster drawing technique, but I preferred the old ones. Other things that I like about this series I still really like. The inclusion of livejournal endeared it to me even more.

    This volume gives hints at what's coming, but overall I only found it so-so. Trilby is really coming on as a stronger character, which is nice. I still find Mara and Audrey strangely uncompelling. This volume gives hints at what's coming, but overall I only found it so-so. Trilby is really coming on as a stronger character, which is nice.

    By this point in the series, there's a real sense that the story is going somewhere. It's not so much that the pace picks up, but a very subtle change in atmosphere. By now you're either on board with the series or not. I was certainly in love with it. Excellent work. By this point in the series, there's a real sense that the story is going somewhere.

    By this point, I was completely hooked on the series. It's definitely a kind of slice-of-life storytelling approach, driven by character rather than plot events, and thus not for everyone, but extremely rewarding if you stick with it!
