Alan Moore is one of the most famous writers for graphic novels and comics. The ones that I have read are V for Vendetta, League of Extraordinary Gentlemen and Batman- The Killing Joke. Incidentally, I haven’t been able to read his most famous work, which now is being made into a film, Watchmen.
I have high hopes of “Watchmen” because of
1. Zack Snyder– Watchmen is being directed by the guy who floored me with the movie adaptation of 300.
2. Alan Moore– When you read his work, you can almost feel the era in which the stories are set (he. The atmosphere is so complex and mysterious, yet so real. Watchmen is not one of the first comics which tries to show the “other” side of super-heroes, but it is certainly the most sophisticated and celebrated one.
I hope to read it asap! Meanwhile check out the trailer for the film!
