Days Missing's protagonist was the one who took them away.

He did what he did in each case for the good of humanity.

The last issue of the first series put him at the beginning of new life.

It flailed aborning, conscious of and confused by its existence.

It comprehended what it was, not why. )

E.V.I.L. Heroes #1

"With great power… comes great corruption. Superheroes are real. They walk the earth as gods among men. But the fairy tales of them protecting mankind and being heroes were all lies. Humans have become their slaves, fit only to serve their super powered masters. But in man the nature of the true hero still survives… and one group rises up to challenge their self-appointed masters. Can they hope to succeed or will their opposition only push mankind closer to extinction."

Cinema Purgatorio #5 - "The Time of Our Lives"

"It was Kevin [O'Neill], when we were two or three episodes into the project, who most perfectly encapsulated what we were struggling our way towards by saying that it wasn’t really horror movies we were concerned with so much as the horror of movies: our work in Cinema Purgatorio seems to be focussing in on the uneasy aspects of the way we watch films, with our simultaneous awareness of the lives of the actors and directors and production companies that are going on behind the painted flats, and our conditioned acceptance of cinematic conventions that are in as complete a contradiction of reality as anything that H.P. Lovecraft ever attempted, simply because we’ve grown used to them and barely notice them anymore." -- Alan Moore
