Alan Moore Books Overview
In a story full of lust, madness, and ecstasy, we meet twelve distinctive characters that lived in the same region of central England over the span of six thousand years. Their narratives are woven together in patterns of recurring events, strange traditions, and uncanny visions. First, a cave boy loses his mother, falls in love, and learns a deadly lesson. He is followed by an extraordinary cast of characters: a murderess who impersonates her victim, a fisherman who believes he has become a different species, a Roman emissary who realizes the bitter truth about the Empire, a crippled nun who is healed miraculously by a disturbing apparition, an old crusader whose faith is destroyed by witnessing the ultimate relic, two witches, lovers, who burn at the stake. Each interconnected tale traces a path in a journey of discovery of the secrets of the land. In the tradition of Kipling’s Puck of Pook’s Hill, Schwob’s Imaginary Lives, and Borges’ A Universal History of Infamy, Alan Moore Watchmen, From Hell, Lost Girls travels through history blending truth and conjecture, in a novel that is dazzling, moving, sometimes tragic, but always mesmerizing. Now available in paperback for the first time in America! With an Introduction by Neil Gaiman, a signature of full color plates by Jose Villarrubia, and a cover design by Chip Kidd.
Before WATCHMEN, Alan Moore made his debut in the U.S. comic book industry with the revitalization of the horror comic book THE Swamp Thing. His deconstruction of the classic monster stretched the creative boundaries of the medium and became one of the most spectacular series in comic book history. With modern day issues explored against a backdrop of horror, Swamp Thing‘s stories became commentaries on environmental, political and social issues, unflinching in their relevance. SAGA OF THE Swamp Thing Book One collects issues 20 27 of this seminal series including the never before reprinted SAGA OF THE Swamp Thing 20, where Moore takes over as writer and concludes the previous storyline. Book One begins with the story ‘The Anatomy Lesson,’ a haunting origin story that reshapes Swamp Thing mythology with terrifying revelations that begin a journey of discovery and adventure that will take him across the stars and beyond.
An unforgettable hardcover collection of WATCHMEN writer Alan Moore’s definitive Superman tales that is sure to appeal of readers of his BATMAN: THE KILLING JOKE graphic novel. Moore teams with Curt Swan, the definitive Superman artist from the 1950’s through the 1970’s, to tell the final adventure of the Man of Steel featuring his last stand against Lex Luthor, Brainiac and his other foes in ‘WHATEVER HAPPENED TO THE MAN OF TOMORROW?’. This volume also includes Moore’s classic early collaboration with WATCHMEN illustrator Dave Gibbons, ‘FOR THE MAN WHO HAS EVERYTHING’, in which Batman, Robin and Wonder Woman find Superman held captive by the villain Mongul in the Fortress of Solitude and dreaming of an idyllic life on Krypton courtesy of a wish fulfilling parasitic plant known as the Black Mercy. Both tales are considered two of the top five all time best Superman stories among fans. The rare first team up adventure between the Man of Tomorrow and Swamp Thing, the character that first brought Moore to notoriety in the United States, is included as an additional bonus.
