Wise words from the Great Hairy genius of Modern Comics,
This review is from: Alan Moore's Writing For Comics Volume 1 (Paperback)Thinking about writing a comic? Rekon you have a good idea but just can't get started? Want to know the secrets of the worlds greatest living creative mind?
Lie back and prepare to be dazzled!
No, but seriously...
In this slender tome (not 50 pages, with illustrations), originaly published in Wizard with a recent afterword, Alan Moore tells us, not just how to write for comics but shares his whole philosophy of writing with us in his disengenuos humble style. Reading the prose you can really see just what it is that makes Alan Moore so special.
To paraphrase what Warren Ellis says on the back, one for the shelf of any smart comics fan or interested party, next to your McClouds and Eisner.
