Moore. Gaiman. Morrison.
They came from Northampton, West Sussex, and Glasgow, and even though they spoke with different dialects, they gave American comics a new voice—one loud and clear enough to speak to the Postmodern world. Like a triple-helix strand of some advanced form of DNA, their careers have remained irrevocably intertwined. They go together, like Diz, Bird, and Monk … or like Kerouac, Burroughs, and Ginsberg … or like the Beatles, the Stones, and the Who.
Taken individually, their professional histories provide an incomplete picture of the British Invasion, but together they redefined the concept of what it means to be a comic book writer. Collectively, their story becomes the story of mainstream comics in the modern era.
