Synopsis: Hailed as one of the best and most influential writers in comics today, Alan Moore has penned such important and critically-acclaimed titles as Watchmen, Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, Batman: The Killing Joke, Swamp Thing and The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen. Now, collected for the first time ever, Moore's rarely-seen and hard-to-find one-off stories can be enjoyed anew. Featuring such superheroes as Superman, Batman and Green Lantern, and illustrated by a host of comic luminaries including Dave Gibbons (Watchmen), Kevin O'Neill (Marshal Law), Rick Veitch (Swamp Thing) and Klaus Janson (Daredevil), these tales showcase Moore's versatile and innovative style. The perfect introduction to a master storyteller!
Review: "The reader is rewarded with elaborate allegories or exquisitely wrought extended riffs." -- Larry Rodman, The Comics Journal, December 2003
