RO MYRRN WUN WARDA!

Trauma is the scariest monster of all. The monster within is far worse than the monster without.

MoonRise is the story of Kam, a werewolf, molded into the perfect weapon by his captors, the shadow agency REMUS. But when he’s freed by Anula, one of his own kind, Kam learns he may not be what REMUS and its ilk led him to believe. Faced with the prospect of a new destiny, Kam must choose between being the monster they’ve made him or fighting to become something more. The fate of worlds depends on it.

MoonRise created by writer Mike Exner III and artist Cem Iroz in 2022 and launched on Webtoon in January of 2023.

MoonRise Second Trailer The Road So Far: We’ve witnessed Kam’s tortured past as he was manipulated into becoming a living weapon by the shadowy agency REMUS. Implanted with devices that force him into a feral Myrrn form, Kam’s life takes a dramatic turn when Anula, a fellow Myrrnian, rescues him from REMUS captivity. Anula reveals Kam’s true identity – not only is he not of this world, he’s the rightful heir of Myrrn, betrayed and dethroned by his parents’ closest ally, the savage Kerberus. The dynamic duo face relentless challenges, from REMUS’ dogged pursuit to the mounting threat of warriors from beyond. Kam’s struggle with his monstrous side is intensified when REMUS forces Kam to change against his will, turning him temporarily against Anula. The revelation of Kam’s royal lineage, combined with Anula’s resilience, sets the stage for an epic journey of redemption, self-acceptance, and the fight for justice. The Road Ahead: After a mid-season break that left fans on the edge of their seats, MoonRise is back with a promise of even more intrigue, action, and jaw-dropping events.

May 3, 2023But what is it coming back from, you ask? Why, the dreaded hiatus, of course! Yes, it’s true. MoonRise is on its first official hiatus. A mid-season hiatus, if you want to get technical about it (and you know you do!). What that means is that creators Cem Iroz and Mike Exner are about halfway through the first season of MoonRise and are taking a bit of time to complete the remainder of the episodes in Season 1 so when they return the series can commence updating week-after-week until the season is complete! Exactly when MoonRise will be back from hiatus isn’t currently clear. The easy answer is, “As soon as we’re done!”, but the longer answer is that episodes of the quality we feel our audience deserves take time to produce and we’re working our tails (we don’t literally have tails, but you get the idea) off to get the episodes done as quickly as we possibly can. Rest assured that we’re already a fair bit ahead of schedule and we expect to be back releasing episodes of MoonRise sooner rather than later. Until then keep your eyes on our website for more updates and sneak peeks! You can also find plenty of behind-the-scenes posts, scripts, sketches and more at the MoonRise patreon! You can also follow Cem and Mike on their socials. Cem has twitter, instagram and his own website and Mike has twitter, instagram and a semi-regular newsletter on Substack… the Exner Alert! We’ll be back in two shakes of a Myrrnian’s tail! In other words… Ro Myrrn on bael. (Ro Myrrn on bael.) [...] Read more...
