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 learns about the beasties in NY City underworld and how to offer them 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?

The Vast – Christos Gage and Gabriel Andrade bring a new kind of giant monster story to life!
