9781893905245: The Extraordinary Works Of Alan Moore

  • More than just a tribute book, The Extraordinary Works of Alan Moore tells Moore's story, as the reclusive British author speaks enthusiastically and passionately about his life and work in an extensive series of interviews.
  • Moore displays his trademark wit and shares his unique insight on the comics that have shaped his legendary career - from his beginnings on Swamp Thing to the present day success of his own comic book universe in America's Best Comics.
  • Within this tome, readers will find rare strips, scripts, artwork and photographs of the author, most never published before.
  • Also features Moore's closest collaborators elaborating in comic strip form on their relationships with Moore, including Neil Gaiman (New York Times Best Selling Author of American Gods), Dave Gibbons (Artist of Watchmen), Sam Kieth (creator of MTV's The Maxx), Kevin O'Neill, Brian Bolland and others!

About the Author:

George Khoury wrote and edited the Eisner-nominated Kimota and The Extraordinary Works of Alan Moore. He was a senior editor for the award-winning magazine Comic Book Artist; he was also a regular contributor to the popular Modern Masters series. He contributed many articles to a variety of magazines, newspapers, and websites. He was born and raised in New Jersey. His latest book is called Comic Book Fever.

From Booklist:

Khoury marks Alan Moore's exalted status in the comics world on the occasion of Moore's fiftieth birthday. The centerpiece of the volume is a lengthy interview with the reclusive writer, touching upon everything from his early days as an aspiring comics fan to his recently announced retirement from mainstream comics. More compelling, perhaps, is the bounty of rare material reprinted here, ranging from strips a teenaged Moore wrote--and drew (!)--for the British music press to obscure stories, photographs, and examples of his famously detailed scripts. Tributes from some of Moore's most renowned friends and collaborators, including Neil Gaiman, Dave Gibbons, Brian Bolland, Rick Veitch, and Alex Ross, round out the text, and a comprehensive bibliography of Moore's work should delight collectors even as it makes them despair of ever acquiring all the prolific writer's publications. This celebration of comics' most acclaimed author should prove exhaustive enough to satisfy even the most obsessed of Moore's legion of fans. Gordon Flagg
