About this item
A collection of Alan Moore's (Watchmen, From Hell) short comics stories. From bold experiments, through early takes on his favorite subjects, to self-critiques of his older work, this wide ranging collection is an essential look at Alan Moore's obscure but illuminating short stories. Each story is drawn by some of the best artists in comics from mainstream mavericks like Steven Bissette (Swamp Thing,Tyrant), Rick Veitch (Swamp Thing, Bratpack), and John Totleben (Miracelman), to underground iconoclasts like Mark Beyer (RAW) and Peter Bagge (Hate,Woman Rebel: The Margaret Sanger Story). Comic book critic Marc Sobel provides insightful commentary and context for each of the stories.
Marc Sobel is the co-editor of The Love and Rockets Companion published by Fantagraphics Books. He is also the author of the forthcomingLove and Rockets Reader, also from Fantagraphics. He is also a freelance journalist and scholar in the field of comic book studies.
