A collection of Alan Moore's (Watchmen, From Hell) difficult-to-find comics short 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 Moore's illuminating short stories. Each story is drawn by some of the best artists in comics from mainstream mavericks like Steven (Swamp Thing, Tyrant) Bissette, Rick (Swamp Thing, Bratpack) Veitch & 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 forthcoming Love and Rockets Reader, also from Fantagraphics. He is also a freelance journalist and scholar in the field of comic book studies. Alan Moore is an English writer primarily known for his work in comic books, including Watchmen, V for Vendetta, and From Hell (and many others). Frequently described as the best graphic novel writer in history, and he has been called "one of the most important British writers of the last fifty years."

MEDIA REVIEWS
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
