    A complete guide to the comics work of the writer Alan Moore, this book helps readers explore one of the genre's most important, compelling and subversive writers.

    In an accessible and easy-to-navigate format, the book covers:

    * Moore's comics career - from his early work in 2000AD to his breakthrough graphic novels and his later battles with the industry
    * Moore's major works - including Watchmen, V for Vendetta, Saga of the Swamp Thing and Promethea
    * Key themes and contexts - from Moore's subversion of the superhero genre and metafictional techniques to his creative collaborations and battles with the industry for creator control
    * Critical approaches to Moore's work

    The book includes a bibliography of critical work on Moore and discussion questions for classroom use.
