    Comment: I almost hate to say it, but here's another brilliant financial decision by Mr. Moore. Doth he realize the value of his collections or his work? How can this sell and make him some money for twenty bucks?

    Looks great, though.

    Wouldn't it be DC that are making this 'brilliant financial' decision? :)

    Although I believe that Moore's relationship with DC is back on the 'therma-freeze' setting again (some dispute over the V For Vendetta movie iirc), he has in the past permitted his work be reprinted so that the artists can gain some royalties from their work, on the grounds that it's unfair that his problems with DC/Marvel/whoever should impact negatively on other people.
    _"For an eternity Allard was alone in an icy limbo where all the colours were bright and sharp and comfortless.
    _For another eternity Allard swam through seas without end, all green and cool and deep, where distorted creatures drifted, sometimes attacking him.
    _And then, at last, he had reached the real world – the world he had created, where he was God and could create or destroy whatever he wished.
    _He was supremely powerful. He told planets to destroy themselves, and they did. He created suns. Beautiful women flocked to be his. Of all men, he was the mightiest. Of all gods, he was the greatest."
