Long London 1

release date: Apr 02, 2024
Long London 1
From the beloved creator of Watchmen and numerous other classics, the Long London series is a tour-de-force that tells the story of the timeless shadow city full of magic and memory somewhere beyond the "real London." Long London is a series about "a sometimes-accessible shadow city that is beyond time." This is a hugely inventive, atmospheric, mythical world of murder, magic and madness. It is a quintet of novels that sweeps across the 20th century, starting in the shell-shocked and unravelled London of 1949, and following the populations of writers, criminals, artists, and magicians through that familiar city and a version of London just beyond our knowledge.

His deconstruction of the classic monster stretched the creative boundaries of the medium and became one of the most spectacular series in comic book history. With modern-day issues explored against a backdrop of horror, Swamp Thing's stories became commentaries on environmental, political and social issues, unflinching in their relevance. Includes the story "The Anatomy Lesson", a haunting origin story that reshapes Swamp Thing mythology with terrifying revelations that begin a journey of discovery and adventure that will take him across the stars and beyond."--

Captain Britain Omnibus

release date: Oct 01, 2021
Captain Britain Omnibus
And for every legend, there is a beginning. For each, this is their first masterpiece, a fitting repository of the literary and artistic standards they would establish. A story that would influence the heart and soul of comic books for generations. For Brian Braddock, a.k.a. Captain Britain, it began when the Merlin of Arthurian myth transported him to a world sideways to his own, an alternate reality on the brink of annihilation. A world Braddock would fail to save. And when the events that destroyed that world begin to repeat themselves on his own, Captain Britain faces a destiny that he cannot avert.

The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, Vol IV: The Tempest

release date: Jan 08, 2020
The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, Vol IV: The Tempest
After an epic twenty-year journey through the entirety of human culture—the biggest cross-continuity “universe” that is conceivable—Alan Moore and Kevin O’Neill conclude both their legendary LEAGUE OF EXTRAORDINARY GENTLEMEN and their equally legendary comic book careers with the series’ spectacular fourth and final volume, THE TEMPEST. Tying up the slenderest of plot threads and allusions from the three preceding volumes, THE BLACK DOSSIER, and the NEMO trilogy into a dazzling and ingenious bow, the world’s most accomplished and bad-tempered artist-writer team use their most stylistically adventurous outing yet to display the glories of the medium they are leaving; to demonstrate the excitement that attracted them to the field in the first place; and to analyze, critically and entertainingly, the reasons for their departure. Opening simultaneously in the panic-stricken headquarters of British Military Intelligence, the fabled Ayesha’s lost African city of Kor, and the domed citadel of “We” on the devastated Earth of the year 2996, the dense and yet furiously paced narrative hurtles like an express locomotive across the fictional globe from Lincoln Island to modern America to the Blazing World; from the Jacobean antiquity of Prospero’s Men to the superhero-inundated pastures of the present to the unimaginable reaches of a shimmering science-fiction future. With a cast list that includes many of the most iconic figures from literature and pop culture, and a tempo that conveys the terrible momentum of inevitable events, this is literally and literarily the story to end all stories. Originally published as a six-issue run of unfashionable, outmoded and flimsy children’s comics that would make you appear emotionally backward if you read them on the bus, this climactic magnum opus also reprints classic English super-team publication The Seven Stars from the murky black-and-white reachers of 1964. A magnificent celebration of everything comics were, are, and could be, any appreciator or student of the medium would be unwise to miss THE LEAGUE OF EXTRAORDINARY GENTLEMEN, VOLUME IV: THE TEMPEST.

Jerusalem

release date: Sep 13, 2016
Jerusalem
The New York Times bestseller from the author of Watchmen and V for Vendetta finally appears in a one-volume paperback. Begging comparisons to Tolstoy and Joyce, this “magnificent, sprawling cosmic epic” (Guardian) by Alan Moore—the genre-defying, “groundbreaking, hairy genius of our generation” (NPR)—takes its place among the most notable works of contemporary English literature. In decaying Northampton, eternity loiters between housing projects. Among saints, kings, prostitutes, and derelicts, a timeline unravels: second-century fiends wait in urine-scented stairwells, delinquent specters undermine a century with tunnels, and in upstairs parlors, laborers with golden blood reduce fate to a snooker tournament. Through the labyrinthine streets and pages of Jerusalem tread ghosts singing hymns of wealth and poverty. They celebrate the English language, challenge mortality post-Einstein, and insist upon their slum as Blake’s eternal holy city in “Moore’s apotheosis, a fourth-dimensional symphony” (Entertainment Weekly). This “brilliant . . . monumentally ambitious” tale from the gutter is “a massive literary achievement for our time—and maybe for all times simultaneously” (Washington Post).
