The master of comic book writing shares his thoughts on how to deliver a top-notch script! The main essay was originally written in 1985 and appeared in an obscure British fanzine, right as Moore was reshaping the landscape of modern comics, and has been tragically lost ever since. Now Avatar brings it back in print, collected for the first time as one graphic novel, and heavily illustrated by Jacen Burrows. Moore also provides a brand new essay on how his thoughts on writing have changed in the two decades since he first wrote it.

Our customer reviews

First, the description is inaccurate. This is not a graphic novel nor is it heavily illustrated. It contains some badly drawn and kitschy art, at best. Second, the way it is written lacks the quality you might expect from such a highly praised author. There are plenty of typos and weird sentences that betray an uncooked rant written on restaurant tissues. The information could be useful, but I doubt it can really help you in delivering that top-notch script.show more
