Condition: Used: Very Good
Comment: We bought a large collection of books from an avid collector who had great taste and was very meticulous~~Most are in excellent condition!! Book has a few ssmall smudges? on cover--they seem like they are more sticky like from a sticker --don't think it is actually marred. This book is signed by the editor to Bill, Thank you for your help & your willingness to be included.. & sorry it didn't work out in the end. I hope you enjoy the book, nevertheless. Cheers, Eric Berlatsky. You can also see Bill's name on the front cover like it was printed in pencil--Bill Baker was an author & book reviewer.

Editorial Reviews


"[Alan Moore:Conversations is dense with interesting, disorienting, provocative ideas" - Kristian Williams, The Comics Journal

"I'd recommend this book to anyone with more than a passing interest in Moore's work over the years, because it does quite wonderfully illustrate the evolution and mutation of the thinking behind the work over... christ, thirty years or so.  It's a nice bit of curation by Eric Berlatsky, and a joy to read."- Warren Ellis,

"[Alan Moore:Conversations is a fascinating read, not only for fans of Alan Moore's prolific work, but for those interested in the shifting medium of comics since the decade when they suddenly found themselves in the spotlight with their underpants on the outside."- Greg Baldino, Bleeding Cool

"Alan Moore: Conversations is a useful compendium of all things Moore, a handy resource for a more thorough understanding of Moore's idiosyncratic and expansive interests, recommended for both the hard-core Moore fans and initiates alike."  Eric Hoffman, Comics Bulletin

A reader will find in this book Moore talking about many different things that are useful not only to the comics fan, but also to anyone interested in narrative craft of any kind, epistemology, media studies, and politics.- Wesley Venus, Studies in Popular Culture

Format: Paperback
Alan Moore is a fascinating subject for an interview. Not only are his works among the finest in comics history, unique in their depth, conviction and intellect, but Moore as a person is similarly one-of-a-kind. The interviews collected here present Moore on a range of subjects and span most of his career. The book is well worth the attention of anyone interested in Moore's work, or comics in general. A handy tome featuring some of Moore's finest interviews, this collection is a welcome addition to any Alan Moore library. Buy it.

By Art Turner on November 9, 2014
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a collection of interviews that the famous writer/provocateur/shaman Alan Moore gave between 1982 and 2009. Moore is well-known for his volubility, and fans of this aspect of his personality will not be disappointed by the material collected herein. There is a slight problem with redundancy here (Moore, for example, is quite fond of recounting his process for the plotting of the unfinished comics series Big Numbers 1, discussions of which occur more than once here), but editor Eric L. Berlatsky has corrected against this by primarily selecting interviews that discuss individual works of Moore's (Watchmen, Lost Girls, etc.)

One of the great pleasures of this collection is the numerous bon mots that Moore creates with such apparent effortlessness. Some examples:

On writing as propaganda: "I'm aware of how words can change people's minds, can change the way people think. So are all of the advertisers, so are all of the politicians, so are all of the people who run our lives. They're not pulling any punches. I would say it is beholden unto any writer to equally not pull any punches on the other side. If you believe something, if you believe something is right or something is wrong then yeah, try and convince other people. Spread the idea around like a designer virus. Make it so other people will repeat it."

On genres: "My experience of life is that it is not divided up into genres. It's a horrifying, romantic, tragic, comical, science-fiction, cowboy, detective novel.
