Alan Moore's Another Suburban Romance

Alan Moore's Another Suburban Romance Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Collecting the performance work of Alan Moore, the Hugo-Award winning author of WATCHMEN, in a graphic storytelling format, as he explores the America's love affair with Gangland mobsters and the modern notion of romance.

From the mind of Alan Moore, the Hugo Award-winning author who defined modern graphic storytelling with such works as WATCHMEN and LEAGUE OF EXTRAORDINARY GENTLEMEN, comes three mind-expanding tales adapted by his longtime collaborator Antony Johnston into full sequential stories. Original presented as performance works by the author himself, this original graphic novel is a twisting, brilliant rumination on society from the 1920s era Chicago-style killings of the story "Old Gangsters Never Die" to the powerful, modern namesake piece, "Another Suburban Romance." A mesmerizing tour de force that no Moore fan will want to miss!

Synopsis:

An all-new graphic novel from the writer who defined modern comics, Alan Moore. For the first time ever, Alan Moore's performance works making up the play Another Suburban Romance are put in print and lavishly illustrated as full sequential stories. Comprised of three major pieces, adapted from Moore's original presentations by frequent collaborator Antony Johnston (The Courtyard), this original graphic novel is completely illustrated by the Spanish sensation Juan Jose Ryp. Running from the 1920's Chicago style killings in Old Gangsters Never Die, to the ruminations of modern life in the namesake piece Another Suburban Romance, this powerful work is one that no Alan Moore fan will want to miss!
