  • Five short films: 90 minutes of films on DVD (region 0, plays on all machines worldwide)

Another £15 on top will get you one of 200 limited signed editions. Lex had the following to say about the films –


Co-creators Alan Moore & Mitch Jenkins have teamed with Lex to tell a story through film, a vast new work of fiction called The Show. The first part of the story is told through five episodic short films – Show Pieces.

Show Pieces are the first films by Alan Moore written specifically for the screen. The development of the short films led to the creation of a book featuring the full colour storyboards, the original screenplays and tons of additional background material written by Alan Moore about the universe of The Show.

Set in the town of Northampton, UK, Show Pieces is an occult noir thriller starring Siobhan Hewlett, Darrell D'Silva and Andrew Buckley. Alan Moore also appears playing a small but important part in the story."
