Alan Moore: Storyteller preview

portrait by Danny North

Gary Spencer Millage, writer of the wonderful Strangehaven has just completed work on his next book, Alan Moore: Storyteller.
Gary writes about it on his blog, which you can find HERE.
The book will be published in the UK in May by Ilex Press.

Alan's parents wedding: 1952

We've been lucky enough to see a preview of some of the book, and if what we have seen is anything to go by, you are in for a treat. It is full of fascinating snippets- everything from early family photographs to some of his first published cartoon work to thumbnails for the world changing graphic novel From Hell.
All this is accompanied by in depth interviews with the Man Himself and information about his many landmark series.

This illustration of Elvis Costello was Moore's first professional sale

We'll keep you up to date with any new info about this wonderful looking book, and bring you a full review nearer the time.

And by the way, in searching for a picture of Mr Moore for the top of this page, we found this wonder, which it too good not to share:
