Alan Moore: Storyteller is a lush new artbook about the writer and comic genius behind Watchmen, V for Vendetta, The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, and From Hell. The hardcover monograph spans Moore's entire career, from his early performance pieces and comic strips to his emergence as one of comicdom's most brilliant and esoteric voices. Along the way, we gain insight into his process and can even see pages from his work-in-progress notebooks and scripts. The book includes an audio CD with Moore's spoken word and audio performances. Gary Spencer Millidge, author of Comic Book Design, put the book together and Michael Moorcock wrote the foreward. A lovely objet d′art and tribute to this essential voice of 20th (and 21st) century narrative.
