Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The writer who revolutioniezd modern comic book storytelling, Alan Moore (Hugo-Award winning author of WATCHMEN) provides his guide to crafting graphic stories. Perfect for Moore fans, creative writers of all media, and librarians!

Alan Moore, Hugo-Award winning author of WATCHMEN and the acknowledged master of comic book writing, shares his thoughts on how to deliver a top-notch script! An essay originally written in 1985 to appear in an obscure British fanzine (right at the time that Moore was reshaping the landscape of modern comics), WRITING FOR COMICS was lost to time until its collection in these pages, expanded with a brand new essay by the author on how his thoughts on writing have changed in the two decades since. An insightful and eye-opening look into a brilliant creative mind, perfect for Moore devotees and fiction writers of all literary forms looking to hone their craft.

Review:

"Alan Moore was one of the first comics authors to write extensively and intelligently about the underpinnings of the craft. I know people who've been waiting fifteen years to see this reprinted. It goes right there next to Eisner and McCloud on the smart reader's shelf." Warren Ellis, creator of The Authority and Scars
