Sitting in the theater of Alan Moore's imagination you begin to notice some rather disturbing things. The floors are wet and the seats are tacky and have a noticeable smell of rot. A female usher walks down the aisle dragging a limp leg and shining a muted yellow beam filled with dust and debris into your eyes as she passes. You catch glimpses of seedy characters and acts happening around you. But the lights have gone down and the show is beginning. Enjoy a front row seat to the biggest names in comics delivering their finest works, all in luscious black& white. This issue continues Cinema Purgatorio by Alan Moore and Kevin O'Neill, A More Perfect Union by Max Brooks and Michael DiPascale, Code Pru by Garth Ennis and Raulo Caceres, Modded by Kieron Gillen and Ignacio Calero, and
The Vast by Christos Gage and Gabriel Andrade. Each story has its own cover by the series artist and there is also an Ancient Tome Premium edition limited to 1000 copies.
