    Alan is the boss.

    Watchmen, From Hell and V for Vendetta all blew me away.
    In fact, even my girlfriend was hooked on From Hell.
    Reading Moore was the point where I said - okay, I've always loved comics, I've always loved novels, but in different ways. But here is a graphic novel that stands up there with any "proper" novel.
    There's no difference between the two formats in my mind now.

    Anyone else a fan of his work...?

    I?ve only read V for Vendetta and Watchmen, and there?s no question the latter secures Moore?s claim to greatness. Time Magazine picked Watchmen as one of the 100 best English language novels, and I can?t agree more that the work?s place is rightfully deserved on such a list.

    That is all. The man is a genius.

    Watchmen was by far the best thing he has written, followed closely by The Killing Joke. I still read my trade paperback of Watchmen from time to time.

    Speaking of Watchmen, has anyone picked up the new Absolute Watchmen bokk? I heard its basicaly the same as the slipcase edition that came out in the late 1980's with some additional material.
