The Best Comic Books By Alan Moore

It's no exaggeration to say Alan Moore is the definitively best writer in all of comics. 

His stories have transcended and forever changed the world of comics and how readers outside the industry have perceived it, gaining the medium a newfound and long-lasting respect thanks to titles like Watchmen, V for Vendetta, and Swamp Thing

We'd take a look back at some of the writer's most memorable work, and discuss the effect his work continues to have not only on comics, but in the world of literature as a whole. 


Thematically, Miracleman shares ties to the other, more realistic, postmodern superhero work Moore would create in Swamp Thing and Watchmen, featuring superheroes based in real-world settings learning to accept the moral and psychological implications of their superhero careers. 

Saga of the Swamp Thing

The series explores numerous themes and genres, including horror, sci-fi, fantasy, and occultism, and social issues like environmentalism, racism, pacifism, and feminism. 

The Bojeffries Saga

In its own distinct way, The Bojeffries Saga is arguably the most unique of Moore's early work, with a surrealistic, comedic style reminiscent of British sitcoms like The Young Ones
