Puede que no haya leído todo el libro y pocas cosas recuerdo de su contenido. Pero lo que recuerdo me gustó tanto que ponerle cuatro estrellitas es lo mínimo que podría hacer. Y lo máximo sería poder conseguirlo directamente :D

Recommends it for: anybody interested in getting to know more about (Alan) Moore
If you've ever wanted to know more about the legendary Alan Moore, this is your chance. This book is the only thing in print I've managed to find with biographical info about the whole of Moore's life - well, autobiographical, I guess, since he's the one being interviewed. Very accessable, very interesting.

Fun collection of Moore florilegia, plus an account of his career in his own words.
