Alan Moore, the creator of Watchmen, Miracleman, and more shares his thoughts on the craft of writing comics! The main essay was originally written in 1985 for an obscure British fanzine, just as Moore was reshaping the landscape of modern comics. Now Avatar brings it back in print, collected for the first time as one graphic novel [sic!], and heavily illustrated by Jacen Burrows. Alan Moore also provides a brand new essay on how his thoughts on writing have changed in the two decades since he wrote it. For fans of Moore’s work, new writers, or anyone interested in comics, this book is an indispensable and fascinating peak into the thoughts of one of the masters of comic book writing.
