VOICE OF THE FIRE 25TH ANNIVERSARY EDITION NOVEL $14.99
Alan Moore, Jose Villarrubia, and Chip Kidd
Discover the astonishing first prose novel from the legendary author of Watchmen and From Hell-an epic yet intimate portrait of a single English town across the whole span of human history. The precursor to Jerusalem. In a story full of lust, madness, and ecstasy, we meet twelve distinctive characters that lived in the same region of central England over the span of six thousand years. Their narratives are woven together in patterns of recurring events, strange traditions, and uncanny visions. First, a cave-boy loses his mother, falls in love, and learns a deadly lesson. He is followed by an extraordinary cast of characters: a murderess who impersonates her victim, a fisherman who believes he has become a different species, a Roman emissary who realizes the bitter truth about the Empire, a crippled nun who is healed miraculously by a disturbing apparition, an old crusader whose faith is destroyed by witnessing the ultimate relic, two witches, lovers, who burn at the stake. Each interconnected tale traces a path in a journey of discovery of the secrets of the land. Throughout, the image of the fire resonates between the tales, while Moore finds a different voice for each character-though most are inherently duplicitous in some manner, leading to a further commentary on the disparity between myth and reality, and which is more likely to endure over time.

Despite all this, she still wants a romantic relationship-she just doesn’t know what she’s doing. Not like Dill, the handsome delivery boy with an angelic attitude who’s always surrounded by besotted women. He doesn’t have a worry in the world, and that makes Paprika very nervous. But maybe he’s the guy who can help her with her feelings-and with sex. Bridget Jones’s Diary meets Sex and the City with a pinch of The Devil Wears Prada in the new international hit by acclaimed creator Mirka Andolfo. Collects issues # – 6 NOV210141
