    Watchmen-Favorite Characters and Why?

    I have just finished reading the graphic novel by Alan Moore for the first time in years and I was curious about something. Seeing as this is a social platform, I was hoping to ask what characters from Watchmen you were most fond of and why. Just a curious question to start a discussion.

    Jerusalem by Alan Moore

    It just struck me today that I hadn't discussed this book with anyone here so I came on absolutely convinced there would be a thread on it—I mean, of course there would be—but I can't see one anywhere. I finished it not long ago. One of the reads of my life and I'm a) horribly picky and b) no...

    Alan Moore and his million-word novel

    Alan Moore has declared the first draft of his second novel - to the tune of 1 million words - complete: He says: "“Any editor worth their salt would tell me to cut two-thirds of this book but that’s not going to happen. I doubt that Herman Melville had an editor – if he had, that editor would...

    12th November 2009 04:25 AM David Allen Alan Moore is well known among science fiction and comic fans as being the creator of many stories from which top films like V for Vendetta, Watchmen and From Hell have been based on, so what is he doing working with some of the former members of Blur...

    Alan Moore Documentary

    Recently came across this documentary entitled 'Mindscape of Alan Moore' that came out in 2003. Looks like a quite interesting insight into Alan Moore and some of his better known creations including V for Vendetta and Watchmen. An intriguing person and one of my favourite (along with...

    Alan Moore Cuts Loose!

    This interview with noted comic writer Alan Moore was published yesterday. In no uncertain terms he speaks about his relationship with DC comics; his thoughts on various movies based on his works; the forthcoming BEFORE WATCHMEN prequels and his relationship with various creators. I'm still not...

    Alan Moore's Neonomicon

    Has anyone been reading Alan Moore's Neonomicon comic book, a four-part mini-series published by Avatar Press and based on Lovecraft's universe? It's been an interesting read so far, involving R'Lyeh, aquatic monsters and cops investigating a weird sex cult. But it's not for the faint...

    Alan Moore Book Club

    I'm starting a journey into the phantastic world of comics. Or, more precisely, about to embark on a trip to discover the fuzz about Alan Moore. Isn't he the strip messiah after all? I'll report back here every now and then with my findings and encourage you all to join the discussions...

    Watchmen, by Alan Moore & Dave Gibbons

    I know that I put this up about a year ago, but I have been thinking about trickster gods a lot lately for some reason. I redrafted this after a sleepless night in Seattle recently thinking about Loki and Coyote. I'd love to year your comments on this one. Not sure at all if I am off base...

    From Hell, by Alan Moore & Eddie Campbell

    One thing that I dislike about myself, but I know that I will probably never change, is that I am a literary snob. Generally I know what I like and if a particular work does not fit within those boundaries, I won’t even give it a chance. Mind you now, that does not come purely from a sense of...

    Alan Moore is the bestest!

    There are threads on some of his specific works, but none on the broader scope of his work (or the man himself, for that matter) ... so here it is. For my money, there is no better writer in the history of comics, nor any writer with a longer resume of simply fantastic work under his belt. He...

    V for Vendetta

    I haven't read this comic, it's written by Alan Moore so I'm assuming that it's good, this thread is to people who have read it, please discuss it here and I'll decided based on your comics if it's worth my precious money.

    Alan Moore gives Wachowski Bros, DC the finger!

    Read all about it: Personally, I think Moore has been letting Hollywood produce utter travesties of his work for too long. I hope this will put a stop to any further ghastly debacles like Constantine, although the move comes too late to...

    Alan Moore's Hypothetical Lizard

    As the comic adaptation is about to be released, I'm interesting in the novella (I'd like to read both to compare). Is it a good story ? What did you think of it ?

    Alan Moore novel re-released!

    Arguably the finest comic-book writer ever, Alan Moore also wrote a 'proper novel' back in 1996, called Voice of The Fire. It has just been re-released in what looks to be a lavish new edition. If that interests you, there is a good review at The Modern Word...

    Alan Moore turns fifty, retires from mainstream comics

    Alan Moore, arguably one of the finest writers to choose to exercise his skills in the comic books field, turned 50 this November 18th. Early in his career, he created the dark, Orwellesque V for Vendetta, one of the very best comic stories I have ever read. Since then, he has created tales...
