Bestselling comics writer Alan Moore (The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen) spins a brand new graphic novel from the cosmos of his fantastical retro-futuristic science-hero Tom Strong. As security firm Terror Inc. prepare to seize back America's cities from the grip of crime and chaos, a field capable of nullifying electricity is spreading out from the Grand Canyon. From it spring monsters and demons. Are the two events related? A motley array of science heroes hurl themselves into the growing anarchy to find out! With its alternate realities and universal themes, Terro Obscura shows once again why Alan Moore is the leading light in comics writing!

About the Author:
Alan Moore's credits include such acclaimed titles as Watchmen, Batman: The Killing Joke and The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen. Peter Hogan has written Sandman Presents: Love Street and The Dreaming, as well as Judge Dredd, Durham Red and Strontium Dogs for 2000 AD. Yanick Paquette's artwork credits include The Adventures of Superman, JLA, Wonder Woman and Xena: Warrior Princess - Year One
From Booklist:
In Terra Obscura, superheroes (updates of obscure 1940s comic-book characters) reenter that world and confront a mysterious force that is spreading across the U.S., disabling all technology and threatening to send civilization back to the Stone Age. Moore only co-plots Terra Obscura with Peter Hogan, and, not surprisingly, it isn't as satisfying as comics he fully commands. Yet the intricately plotted if relatively traditional story is more interesting, and its larger-than-life protagonists more vivid, than those of many other superhero comics. Yanick Paquette's art is attractive and straightforward. Gordon Flagg
