Brighter Than You Think  is an essential collection of short stories by Alan Moore, the acclaimed author of several award-winning graphic novels including Watchmen, V for Vendetta, and From Hell. Spanning three decades, this diverse anthology shines new light on ten of Moore's long out-of-print comics. These forgotten masterpieces showcase Moore's creative versatility, intellectual curiosity,and unparalleled talent. Each story is accompanied by an insightful essay by Marc Sobel, who delves into Moore's ideas, influences, and inspirations.

Review:

Nominated for the 2017 Eisner Award for “Best Academic/Scholarly Work.”

"Alan Moore’s most recent projects – his 1,300-page novel Jerusalem and the 12-issue comic book series Providence – may be massive undertakings, but the imagination and éclat of this little volume dwarfs those lumbering mammoths. Collecting taut, twisty stories from 1986 to 2003 – or roughly from the beginning of Watchmen to the end of From Hell, when Moore was at the height of his powers – Brighter than You Think is a showcase for Moore the miniaturist, cramming big ideas into tidy, gem-like structures. Critic Marc Sobel unfolds Moore’s intricacies in essays throughout, and exactingly curates the stories selected" - The Globe and Mail



"What is apparent on reading the comics and the essays here is just how brilliant an author Moore is. There is so much depth and nuance to his work, easily missed without Sobel's guiding hand. This is an exceptional book, essential for fans but also able to serve as a brilliant introduction." - The Quietus

“Brighter Than You Think is a superb collection that, in demonstrating the extraordinary range of Moore’s talent, also shows the versatility of the comics medium itself.” - Rain Taxi

“Definitely one of the best analyses I’ve ever read.” - Vaguely Offensive
