Very Fascinating Documentary
This is a great documentary! I'm a huge fan of Alan Moore's work and this film really shows the audience how Moore has transformed the comic book medium!
More Moore, please
Alan Moore’s books, especially “Watchman”, really inspired me to learn more about his background and other works. This documentary really captures the brilliance of this man. Well done!”
Not a comic book fan, but an admirer of original thought. Alan has clearly, given his "perception" of the world -a deal of thought. Would rent again!
