About the Author:

Alan Moore is one of the most respected and admired writers in comics today, with a host industry awards and accolades. His credits include The Ballad of Halo Jones, Watchmen, V For Vendetta, From Hell and Swamp Thing. He is currently working on his own line of comics, including Tom Strong, Promethea and The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen Volume 2.

From Booklist:

In the 1980s, while busy revolutionizing the superhero genre in Watchmen and Swamp Thing, comic-book writer Moore occasionally wrote scripts featuring other DC Comics characters, from its biggest stars to such obscure also-runs as the Vigilante and the Phantom Stranger. Most of the 13 such stories collected here are qualitatively several notches above run-of-the-mill, even if none approaches the lofty heights of Moore's more renowned work. Unable to give these stories' characters the wholesale overhauling for which he is famous, he relies more on imaginative plotting and incisive characterization. Outstanding are a pair of Superman tales, one also featuring Batman and Wonder Woman, and the other portraying an encounter with Moore's breakthrough character, Swamp Thing. It helps that those selections were drawn by the best artists on view here, Dave Gibbons, Moore's Watchmen collaborator, and Rick Veitch, who drew many of Moore's Swamp Thing scripts. If these stories amount to little more than an entertaining footnote to Moore's big hits, it is nice to have them gathered in one convenient volume. Gordon Flagg
