ALAN MOORE LIGHT OF THY COUNTENANCE GN (MR)
(W) Alan Moore (A) Antony Johnston, Felipe Massafera (CA) Felipe Massafera
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 and breathtaking 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 2000 copies, both with covers by Massafera. (STK384494) (NOV083804)

ALAN MOORE A SMALL KILLING TP (MR)
(W) Alan Moore (A/CA) Oscar Zarate
One of the classic Alan Moore works is finally back in print in this new full color, magazine size, printing with totally re-mastered artwork and lettering. As Alan Moore himself says ” A Small Killing is one of the best pieces of comic book art that I have ever been involved in.” Adman Timothy Hole has everything going for him and has now been handed the biggest assignment of his life, marketing a major cola in Russia. But his smooth life begins to unravel as he is stalked by a demonic child that makes him question not just who he is, but how he really effects those around him. It is about the little murders that we all have to make each day just to get by. The trace assassinations of tiny things. Really, how much damage can be done by a small killing? This work is much more than a sophisticated thriller, it is a nonlinear masterpiece, from the writer who has defined adult graphic novels! As an added bonus this graphic novel includes a new commentary article by both Alan Moore and the artist Oscar Zarate. (STK209381) (STAR19589)
