Fabulous. Moore gives some solid bullet points on writing (and thinking about writing) but what's more helpful are the details between the bullets; digressions and quotes and examples which will provide food for lengthy thought long after the basic, explicit messages have been understood. ( )

A dense booklet, perhaps a bit on the "ramblings and musings" side. In any case, here's someone with very strong opinions about comics, and not afraid to express them. ( )

This is more like advice about writing fiction in general, although there were a few comics-specific references. A good read for beginners, however the afterword spoke more to me. Worth the quick read if you come across it. ( )

One of the most imaginative and creative writers of the last two decades show us how he thinks his art. An excellent book for any one who wants to understand about writing, but not just comics but any kind of writing. Alan Moore is both practical and insightful in his explanations and draws examples from both comics and literatura, showing that the line between is more imaginary than had been thought. ( )

Alan Moore is a Genius. This book is extremely insightful and not only a good how to guide for comic books, but most of the information in here can be applied to writing anything. Alan Moore carries on with humor and dignity, and shares some anecdotes from his writing career. Excellent read. ( )

The master of comic book writing shares his thoughts on how to deliver atop-notch script! The main essay was originally written in 1985 and appeared inan obscure British fanzine, right as Moore was reshaping the landscape of moderncomics, and has been tragically lost ever since. Now Avatar brings it back inprint, collected for the first time as one graphic novel, and heavilyillustrated by Jacen Burrows. Moore also provides a brand new essay on how his thoughts on writing havechanged in the two decades since he first wrote it.
