Overview

Available for the first time on CD, Alan Moore's stunning performance of the complete narrative of his 1988 graphic novel blended with Gary Lloyd's stark electro-military composition. Brought To Light is based on the work of the Washington voluntary legal body, The Christic Institute, who claim that US Military and CIA officials... have waged secret wars, toppled governments, trafficked in drugs, assassinated political enemies and stolen from the US Government'. Moore is the acclaimed author of comic books such as The Watchmen and V For Vendetta. Lloyd is a highly respected composer.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
In this long-awaited documentary comic book, Brabner, co-author of the comic book Real War Stories , and political illustrator Tom Yeates have produced a straightforward and competently illustrated journalistic account of the CIA's pivotal attempt to assassinate independent Nicaraguan contra leader Eden Pastora in a bombing at La Penca. The second story, Shadowplay , by celebrated comics writer Moore, and the acclaimed illustrator/author Sienkiewicz, is a masterly satiric expose of ``The Secret Team'' that came to direct the Reagan administration's covert war in Nicaragua. Moore, in combination with Sienkiewicz's viciously parodic drawings, has produced a scathing black comedy documenting the CIA's long history as a criminal shadow government. The wretched choice of format--the two stories are bound back to back, upside down--defeats easy reference between the two related works, all the more galling since Shadowplay provides a broader context for understanding the La Penca bombing. (Mar. )
