With a creator as widely read, celebrated, and analyzed as Alan Moore, it's pretty easy to think that you could go out and get everything he's ever written. I mean, you can find the big stuff like Watchmen or V For Vendetta just wandering around airports, and even older, more obscure titles like Halo Jones or DR And Quinch aren't that hard to track down.

And it became official this weekend at Otakon, where Viz announced that the acclaimed horror manga would be made available again in the form of 2-in-1 deluxe omnibus volumes.
Eight years after the end of the anime based on writer/artist Naoki Urasawa's acclaimed horror manga Monster, the story is coming back to TV under the guidance of Hellboy and Pacific Rim director Guillermo del Toro...
When I was a kid, I went through a phase where I was way into monsters -- Draculas, Frankensteins, demons from the pits of Hell, all that good stuff -- and, as these were the dark days before the Internet, I would hit the library on a weekly basis checking out books illustrated with the scarier pieces of pop culture and mythology...
