Quicklets: Learn more. Read less. Alan Moore is an English author, born in 1958, who is known for his work in graphic novels. While Watchmen, V for Vendetta, The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, and From Hell remain his most recognizable titles, hes also written for DC Comics and IPC. Hailed by his peers as one of the best comic book writers of all time, Moore has won numerous Jack Kirby, Eagle, and Harvey awards. Despite his opposition, his books From Hell, The League of Extraordinary Gentleman, V for Vendetta, and Watchmen have all been adapted to the big screen. Watchmen was released by DC Comics in twelve installments during 1986 and 1987, and its initial popularity helped DC Comics momentarily overtake Marvel Comics in direct comic sales. The series quickly gained critical and commercial praise, and in 1988 it won a Hugo Award. Alan Moore eventually severed ties with DC due to disagreements about the ownership of the story, stating that he felt swindled by them. In 2009 Watchmen was released as a major motion picture by Warner Brothers. Despite Moores opposition to it, the film did well at the box office which led to a direct to DVD release of the Watchmen sup-plot story Tales of the Black Freighter and a video game.
