Fully authorised and absolutely comprehensive, this is the illustrated biography of Alan Moore, co-creator of Watchmen, and one of the most popular and important British writers, in any medium, alive today.
Having interviewed Moore and many of his collaborators in depth, Gary Spencer Millidge is well placed to examine Moore's entire career. Subjects covered include rarely-seen early work, breakthrough UK comics, the hugely successful American work that brought comics to a wider, adult audience, and the genre-defying independent stories of the 1990s, up to his current alternative periodical, Dodgem Logic.
Of equal interest, and covered in full here, are Moore's other endeavours: freedom of speech; magic and ritual; performance art; anarchism; self-publishing; and supporting the arts in his native Northampton, amongst others.
Richly illustrated throughout with behind-the-scenes script pages, personal photos and stunning comic art, Alan Moore: Storyteller is the definitive analysis of the creative spirit of one of the most important figures in popular culture today.
INCLUDES: Exclusive 19-Track CD of rarely-heard songs, readings, and performances by Alan Moore & Friends.
