Cinema Purgatorio - Alan Moore and Kevin O'Neill take a trip through the dark recesses of cinema, the people behind it, the damage it has done, and the story of one woman forced to bare her soul, one short film at a time. Every issue and every story is radically different yet all weaved into one tapestry of breathtaking complexity as only Alan Moore could do.
A More Perfect Union - Max Brooks and Michael DiPascale bring Max's heavily-researched and period authentic story of the Civil War to life. But this time, the South has been invaded by Giant Insects.
Code Pru - Garth Ennis and Raulo Caceres continue the night shift FDNY paramedic Pru as she tries to grasp the scope of her job. Like how to offer Frankenstein's monster medical assistance.
Modded - Kieron Gillen and Ignacio Calero serve up a future where monsters are pitted against each other, with a goal of catching them all? This issue - Bloody Susan and Mr Boom have to show Fringe the way to get a new daemon!
The Vast - Christos Gage and Gabriel Andrade bring a new kind of giant monster story to life! Apex is not only seemingly impossible to kill, but he leaves a trail of mutation and new monsters in his wake!
Each story has its own cover by the series artist and there is also an Ancient Tome Premium edition limited to 1000 copies. Now please take your seat, the finest comics in the world are about to begin.
