They don’t use Alan Moore’s name, crediting only “The Original Writer,” but these are all the stories he wrote in UK’s Warrior magazine! Word on the street is that, at the end of Moore’s groundbreaking run and Neil Gaiman’s unfinished follow-up, Gaiman himself will return to finish his story! Get in on the ground floor in February!
Also, Joss Whedon’s Firefly/Serenity returns in a comic book story that picks up where the movie left off!
