Product description

"Alan Moore: Storyteller" is the first serious examination of the life, career and work of one of the UKs most distinctive and popular creative voices. It traces Moore's creative development from his modest contributions to Northampton Arts Lab fanzines and local newspaper strips to the very top of his field, writing some of the most widely read and critically acclaimed comics and graphic novels ever produced: "Swamp Thing", "Watchmen", "From Hell", "Lost Girls", "The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen" and "V for Vendetta". The book provides an unparalleled insight into the mind and work of this enigmatic and at times controversial creator. Moores extraordinary body of work is examined in depth, with rare and previously unseen material, glimpses into unfinished and abandoned projects and new light shed on overlooked masterpieces. With co-operation from Moore, and full access to his archives, Gary Spencer Millidge has written a book which will not only be essential reading for Moores many fans, but for anyone interested in contemporary literature and pop culture.

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." "Comics Alliance ""This hardcover book is very cool, its full of color images and TONS of information on Moore's career. Its a great book for any fan and anyone interested in comic book history." BookLegion.com "The definitive book on Moore and his trailblazing works of visual storytelling, Alan Moore is a must-have for his fansi
