Abstract
This comprehensive, in-depth, and personal journey through the life of one of the world's most famous comics creators, Dave Gibbons, spans his earliest years copying Superman and Batman comics as a kid to co-creating the best-selling graphic novel of all time, Watchmen, and beyond!
These memoirs are presented alphabetically, with informally written anecdotes that can be read from cover to cover or simply dipped into, creating the feeling of having a relaxed chat with Gibbons in a convention bar. He discusses unseen comic book pitches, life as the first comics laureate, and going from being a fanzine and "underground comix" artist to infiltrating DC Comics in the 1970s. Covering everything from working on Doctor Who and meeting Tom Baker to being inducted into the Eisner Hall of Fame, Gibbons also discusses—for the first time anywhere—the reasons why he and fellow Watchmen co-creator Alan Moore no longer speak.
Packed with over three hundred iconic, rarely seen, and unpublished artworks and photographs, Confabulation: An Anecdotal Autobiography not only entertains but peels back the layers of a fascinating career in comics, revealing the industry's funniest, most poignant, and strangest untold stories.
