Alan Moore, Author/Artist
As a writer, Alan Moore introduced many to a philosophical questioning of our surroundings and forced even the fair-minded to realize just how ramshackled our perceptions of society really are. Well known for his work in V for Vendetta, The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, and Watchmen, Moore drew his audience with his eloquent manner of expressing himself.
After reading Watchmen myself, I was entranced to read more of his work. The latest of his graphic novels which I have read was The Killing Joke, the story of how an incredibly bad day transformed an innocent man into the insane supervillain known as the Joker. If you are finding yourself with a bit of extra time and are looking for entertaining graphic novels to read, then I suggest you seriously consider anything with Alan Moore's name on it.
