Alan Moore is one of my favourite authors of all time. He wrote the seminal graphic novels of the 80s that totally reinvented graphic storytelling – Batman: The Killing Joke, Watchmen, V For Vendetta, From Hell, League Of Extraordinary Gentlemen and so many more. He truly is a master storyteller and he’s always a very contentious fellow. He has strong opinions about many things, not least of which the industry of which he’s an intrinsic part. There’s an interesting interview with him here at The Guardian, where he talks about his latest League project and also touches on other stuff, like how tablet technology might change comics and the value of libraries.
