Nightjar

 N8YN   (Avatar, 2004)

™ and © 2004 Avatar Press, Inc.

Avatar Press—a company better know for adult fair like Hellina and hard-hitting fiction like Warren Ellis’s Strange Killings—has also become ground zero for some of the more esoteric creations and imaginings of comic’s greatest creators. One such book is Nightjar, originally the brainchild of Alan Moore (Watchmen), re-envisioned with the creator’s permission through the writing of Antony Johnson. In this new series based on the creations and concepts Moore first introduced in the early 80s, Johnson has expanded on the original concept of mystical secret societies in modern day England who control the strings of the world. Within this world of mages and witches, the most powerful of sorceresses has just died, but her granddaughter is soon to be enveloped in the intrigue of world-consuming powers. Dark, wry, and filled with Cold War skepticism, this new look at one of Moore’s earlier imaginings is well worth the read.
