    DescriptionThe definitive book on Alan Moore, renowned as one of the most important talents in contemporary comics and graphic novels, and his trailblazing works of visual storytelling. Alan Moore is one of the most important creative forces in the history of comics. His innovative works, which include V for Vendetta, Watchmen, and The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, have become enduring features of the modern cultural landscape, inspiring countless artists, from writers and illustrators to graphic novelists and filmmakers. Moore has won more awards and prizes than can be named--including nine Eisners, seven Harveys, multiple Jack Kirby awards, and the only Hugo ever awarded for work on a comic. Drawing on new and unpublished interviews, as well as rarely seen art and photos, this is the first book on his work to have Moore's cooperation and support, making it a must-have for his many fans and for anyone interested in the art of visual storytelling. Alan Moore: Storyteller is a survey of his expansive work, from his high-profile best sellers to rarely seen experimental projects, such as spoken word and performance art. Individual works are richly illustrated from Moore's personal archives and paired with critical context. An audio CD will feature excerpts from some of Moore's multimedia performances and songs, making this the Alan Moore handbook: a must-have for his many comic-book fans and anyone interested in the art of visual storytelling.

    Review quote
    "The hardcover monograph spans Moore's entire career, from his early performance pieces and comic strips to his emergence as one of comicdom's most brilliant and esoteric voices. Along the way, we gain insight into his process and can even see pages from his work-in-progress notebooks and scripts... A lovely "objet d′art" and tribute to this essential voice of 20th (and 21st) century narrative." Boing Boing "This new volume by him is a very interesting-looking piece of Mooreana: an authorized biography (mostly organized by project) that has tons of quotes, script excerpts and artwork, as well as a CD of Moore's musical performances."

BookLegion.com "The definitive book on Moore and his trailblazing works of visual storytelling, Alan Moore is a must-have for his fansi
