extraordinary

One of the best reads I picked up for the weekend is The Extraordinary Works of Alan Moore, published by Twomorrows.

It features the most incisive Moore interview I've seen - and believe me, this man can give an interview.

There's lots of insights and stuff to learn about one of the best comic book writers alive (yes, despite the travesty that is Promethea), as well as rare strips (In Pictopia, for example), scripts, artwork & photographs of and by him, plus short form comics by people like Neil Gaiman, Brian Bolland and Dave Gibbons.

His daughters bookend the material with an introduction and an afterword, both quite entertaining.

So go and pick this up. It's better than the other tribute book.
