Alan Moore and Kevin O'Neill invite you, and some of the finest creators in comics, in to join them in a different kind of dark: Cinema Purgatorio!  This ongoing monthly series will feature Alan and Kevin in every issue and is their first major new project together since League of Extraordinary Gentlemen!  Anthology has become a dirty word, so far be it from us to clean it up.  Instead we'll shine our light onto the cutting edge of sequential art, with black and white artwork to allow illustrator's pure visions, and the greatest assembly of writing talent ever gathered on one series.  Every issue is perfect-bound, with no ads, and all more

This story introduces that concept, but the story itself seems pointless and, what I presume to be captions of what the viewer is thinking, even make a point of mentioning that. So let's just say it's weird -- CODE PRU: This next story is written by another powerhouse write more
