Read full description of the books Top 10, Vol. 2:There are some stories I will never have more of, and it breaks my heart.
I'm not talking about the stories I just wish there were more books for. Stories I greedily wish there were more of. More Buffy. More Narnia.
I'm talking of the stories that were cut off before their prime. Before their authors could bring them to a proper ending. I'm talking about the Chronicles of Amber. The Books of Magic. Firefly.
It's with regret that I add this comic to that list. These first two collections had such a strong start. Such good characters. Such cleverness. Such storytelling. There was no part of them that I didn't love.
But from what I understand, ABC comics, which was an Imprint of Wildstorm, was sold to DC. And Moore had grown to hate DC. So though Moore stayed around to give some of the stories a wrap, we'll never get to see these carried forward farther than this.
It breaks my heart a little.
That said, just these first two volumes are absolutely worth your time. And many of the stories and character arcs do see resolution.
Honestly, there are a few one liners in this comic that would make reading the whole thing worthwhile even if the entire rest of the book was nothing but blank paper. I read the second half of this volume laughing like a madman in a late-night restauraunt. I'm lucky people didn't call the cops on me.
Read it. Read it ten times.
Read information about the authorAlan Moore is an English writer most famous for his influential work in comics, including the acclaimed graphic novels Watchmen, V for Vendetta and From Hell. He has also written a novel, Voice of the Fire, and performs "workings" (one-off performance art/spoken word pieces) with The Moon and Serpent Grand Egyptian Theatre of Marvels, some of which have been released on CD.
As a comics writer, Moore is notable for being one of the first writers to apply literary and formalist sensibilities to the mainstream of the medium. As well as including challenging subject matter and adult themes, he brings a wide range of influences to his work, from the literary–authors such as William S. Burroughs, Thomas Pynchon, Robert Anton Wilson and Iain Sinclair; New Wave science fiction writers such as Michael Moorcock; horror writers such as Clive Barker; to the cinematic–filmmakers such as Nicolas Roeg. Influences within comics include Will Eisner, Harvey Kurtzman, Jack Kirby and Bryan Talbot.
