“What Alan Moore crafted in the late 1980s unarguably catapulted the graphic novel to the forefront of pop culture and contemporary literature. Employing a deconstructed superhero persona, a comic within a comic, and a brutally honest commentary on American optimism, Moore gave rise to something exceedingly greater than the sum of its parts.”
