You read that right!ALAN MOORE'S LIGHT OF THY COUNTENANCE GN
By Alan Moore, Antony Johnston and Felipe Massafera.
Published by Avatar Press.Softcover artHardcover art
Alan Moore, master and magician of storytelling, tears back the veil of one of the most arcane of enchantments -- the Magic of Television. Part grimoire, part grim invocation of things that are all too ordinary, this beautiful 48-page novella is stunningly painted by Felipe Massafera.
Maureen Cooper is not real. She is an apparition summoned to screens, into homes, into the hearts and mind of the viewing audience by Carol Livesly. But Carol Livesly is not the god that creates the illusions that capture the mind and bind the soul. She is only a servant of a higher power. A higher, hungry power, as old as the world and eternally new. As, perhaps, are we all... Light of Thy Countenance, an original story by Alan Moore, has been adapted to graphic novella format by Antony Johnston preserving every word, and each page has been painstakingly painted by Felipe Massafera to create this comics masterpiece. Available in a standard Softcover and a limited edition Hardcover, of just 2,000 copies, both with covers by Massafera.

Published by Avatar Press.Cover art
Alan Moore fans, this is the big one, the first all-new Alan Moore horror series in ages is coming, and this is the first look! Neonomicon is the all-new full-color sequel to The Courtyard (whic is being republished in full colour) and promises to be one of Moore's most discussed works!
He takes his re-invention of H.P. Lovecraft's mythos to new levels of madness as investigators look into what happened to legendary FBI man Aldo Sax. The path it leads them down is one of the most intense and disturbing works Moore has ever written. The series itself does not launch until Fall 2009, but this special book offers a look inside the huge amount of material that has already been completed. Featuring completed pages from #1, a look at some of Moore's original script, special design sketches, and an all-new interview with Jacen Burrows, this is far more than just a preview book. It is a glimpse inside the mouth of madness at the hand of the master.
Two editions are available: the standard cover by series artist Jacen Burrows and also a special Leather cover by Burrows that are also signed by the artist, packaged with a Certificate of Authenticity, and limited to just 3,000 copies!
16 pages, $1.99 (Leather/signed, $9.99).
Being a big Moore/Lovecraft fan it goes without saying that I've already put my pre-order in for these little beauties at my LCS
