As author of Watchmen, V for Vendetta, the Swamp Thing series, and many other works, Alan Moore is a pivotal figure in the comics medium. After Watchmen, graphic novels began to gain increasing respect as literary works. Watchmen itself was named to Time Magazine's All Time 100, its list of the greatest novels written in English since the early 20th Century.
For over three decades comics fans and creators have regarded Alan Moore as a titan of the form. With works such as V for Vendetta,The Watchmen and From Hell, Alan has repeatedly staked out new territory, attracting literary plaudits and a mainstream audience far removed from his underground origins.
