Book Excerpt :

For nearly forty years, from his earliest work in underground Arts Lab projects to his latest work as author of League of Extraordinary Gentlemen and Lost Girls, Moore has pushed the boundaries like few others, ranging from farce and high comedy to the dark, grim work that epitomised the comics revolution of the late eighties. This book examines the recurring themes and how Moore's work has evolved over the years from his early comic work in Captain Britain and 2000 AD, through milestone series like V for Vendetta, Marvelman, Swamp Thing and Watchmen, to his current genre-stretching work. On the way Moore has written definitive stories of America's greatest superheroes Batman and Superman, penned some of the most widely read graphic novels of all time, and helped turn comics into an indispensible art form. In this Pocket Essential you'll meet Moore the pop icon (everyone from the Simpsons to Transvision Vamp have hung out with Halo Jones), Moore the performance artist and magician, Moore the novelist, and above all Moore the writer who helped change the face of comics forever. As well as an introductory essay, this book is a comprehensive survey of Alan Moore's career. It also contains a complete list of his works, including projects that never saw the light of day.

Book Short Summary:

Winner of the Eisner, Harvey, and Ignatz Awards for Best Graphic Novel. A New York Times Bestseller! "Remarkable."-- Leo Carey, The New Yorker "... dark, fearsomely complex..."-- Douglas Wolk, Publishers Weekly "My all-time favorite graphic novel... an immense, majestic work about the Jack the Ripper murders, the dark Victorian world they happened in, and the birth of the 20th century."-- Warren Ellis, Entertainment Weekly "Moore's works have often defied the public's expectations of the medium, and his most ambitious work, the massive graphic novel From Hell, is no exception... The result is at once a meditation on evil, a police procedural and a commentary on Victorian England. ... an impressive piece of work."-- Patrick Day, The Los Angeles Times "... a massive exploration of the Jack The Ripper murders that incorporates British history, Masonic ritual, and London geography in a fascinating and horrifying conspiracy theory."-- Tasha Robinson, The AV Club From Hell is the story of Jack the Ripper, perhaps the most infamous man in the annals of murder. Detailing the events leading up to the Whitechapel killings and the cover-up that followed, From Hell is a meditation on the mind of a madman whose savagery and violence gave birth to the 20th century. The serialized story, presented in its entirety in this volume, has garnered widespread attention from critics and scholars, and has been adapted into a major motion picture from Twentieth Century Fox starring Johnny Depp and Heather Graham. Often regarded as one of the most significant graphic novels ever published, From Hell combines meticulous research with educated speculation, resulting in a masterpiece of historical fiction both compelling and terrifying.

Book Short Summary:

The massive, multilayered city of Neopolis, built shortly after World War II, was designed as a home for the expanding population of science-heroes, heroines and villains that had ballooned into existence in the previous decade. In 1985 the city accepted jurisdiction by a police force covering many alternate Earths, headquartered on the world known as Grand Central. Our own outpost of this network, Precinct Ten (known affectionately as Top 10), recruits its members from Neopolis and its environs, working much like Earth's other police precincts, with one major exception: Like the citizens of the city, the officers of Top 10 have the abilities needed to deal with Neopolis's exotic denizens. Rookie cop Robyn Slinger, alter ego "Toybox," hits the streets for the first time along with a colorful crew of fellow officers, each having the required training to deal with science-villains and super-crimes, as well as the common misdemeanors of city life. You'll never look at powers, or police work, the same way again! From Alan Moore, the writer of WATCHMEN and V FOR VENDETTA, and artists Gene Ha (JUSTICE LEAGUE) and Zander Cannon (Transformers), the Eisner award-winning series TOP 10 is collected here in its entirety!

Following two generations of masked crime-fighters from the end of World War II to the height of the Cold War, this compelling tale unfolds from a simple murder mystery into an epic saga of power, corruption and the ultimate meaning of humanity. More than 30 years after it was first published, Moore and Gibbons’ masterpiece continues to inspire and entertain readers around the world.

The Juggler of Notre Dame and the Medievalizing of Modernity.

  • Pdf File: the-juggler-of-notre-dame-and-the-medievalizing-of-modernity.pdf

Book Short Summary:

This ambitious and vivid study in six volumes explores the journey of a single, electrifying story, from its first incarnation in a medieval French poem through its prolific rebirth in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. The Juggler of Notre Dame tells how an entertainer abandons the world to join a monastery, but is suspected of blasphemy after dancing his devotion before a statue of the Madonna in the crypt; he is saved when the statue, delighted by his skill, miraculously comes to life. Jan Ziolkowski tracks the poem from its medieval roots to its rediscovery in late nineteenth-century Paris, before its translation into English in Britain and the United States. The visual influence of the tale on Gothic revivalism and vice versa in America is carefully documented with lavish and inventive illustrations, and Ziolkowski concludes with an examination of the explosion of interest in The Juggler of Notre Dame in the twentieth century and its place in mass culture today. Volume 4 examines the famous Le jongleur de Notre Dame by the French composer Jules Massenet, which took Europe by storm after premiering in 1902 and then crossed the Atlantic to the impresario Oscar Hammerstein and the diva Mary Garden, who gave the opera new legs as a female juggler. Presented with great clarity and simplicity, Ziolkowski's work is accessible to the general reader, while its many new discoveries will be valuable to academics in such fields and disciplines as medieval studies, medievalism, philology, literary history, art history, folklore, performance studies, and reception studies.

Book Short Summary:

For over three decades comics fans and creators have regarded Alan Moore as a titan of the form. With works such as V for Vendetta, Watchmen and From Hell, he has repeatedly staked out new territory, attracting literary plaudits and a mainstream audience far removed from his underground origins. His place in popular culture is now such that major Hollywood players vie to adapt his books for cinema. Yet Moore's journey from the hippie Arts Labs of the 1970s to the bestseller lists was far from preordained. A principled eccentric, who has lived his whole life in one English town, he has been embroiled in fierce feuds with some of the entertainment industry's biggest corporations. And just when he could have made millions ploughing a golden rut he turned instead to performance art, writing erotica, and the occult. Now, as Alan Moore hits sixty, it's time to go in search of this extraordinary gentleman, and follow the peculiar path taken by a writer quite unlike any other.

Book Short Summary:

Bluecoat is a unique and much-loved Liverpool institution, its oldest city centre building. This book tells the fascinating story of its transformation from charity school to contemporary arts centre, the UK’s first. Its early 18th century origins shed light on the religious and maritime mercantile environment of the growing port, whose merchants supported the school. Echoes from then are revealed in themes explored by artists in the 20th century, including slavery and colonial legacies. The predominant focus is on an inclusive building for the arts, starting with colourful bohemian society, the Sandon, who established an artistic colony in 1907, hosting significant exhibitions by the Post-Impressionists and many leading modern British artists. Bluecoat Society of Arts emerged as the building’s custodians, paving the way for the arts centre which, despite financial struggles and wartime bomb damage, survived and continues to play a prominent role in Liverpool’s and the UK’s culture. Bluecoat is described as where ‘village hall meets the avant-garde’. In its rich story, Picasso, Stravinsky, Yoko Ono, Captain Beefheart, Simon Rattle and the inspirational Fanny Calder are just some of the names encountered, as key strands, including music, visual art, performance and the building’s tenants, are traced.

Book Short Summary:

Come Lovecraft scriveva l’orrore alieno? A tale seminale quesito di Gianfranco de Turris intende rispondere il presente lavoro: un ampio saggio critico sulla lingua, le tecniche narrative e la filosofi a del più grande autore horror di ogni tempo, HPL, capace di proiettare l’umano in un mostruoso e potenzialmente infinito cosmo letterario. Le risposte suggeriscono una filosofia dell’orrore che rifonda la realtà e la psicologia: l’essere umano è la porta per l’Oltre, e nello spazio trova eterni varchi per l’Essere Vasto e senza forma che, attraverso un’altera geometria, sogna una forma impossibile per misurare l’infinito. In chiusura, il Dizionario lovecraftiano: un agile repertorio filologico dei termini ricorrenti nell’intera opera di HPL, da The Call of Cthulhu a The Dunwich Horror, da History of the Necronomicon a At the Mountains of Madness, fino ai risolutivi The Haunter of the Dark e The Night Ocean.

Book Short Summary:

This ebook edition contains the full text version as per the book. Doesn't include original photographic and illustrated material. OUR LIVERPOOL is an oral history about the real Liverpool - about the city before its slick transformation to European City of Culture and about the spirit that remains at its heart. Here, at last, is Liverpool's grievous and glorious past. And here, through the people's voices, we find old Liverpool, without the gift-wrap. Its stories pulsate with the rhythms of an alternately funny, flippant, belligerent, stubborn and warm heart, and they broadcast the values of a community, which are the city's true legacy to the modern world. Piers Dudgeon has listened to dozens of people who remember the city as it was, and who have lived through its many changes. They talk of childhood and education, of work and entertainment, of family, community values, health, politics, religion and music. Their stories will make you laugh and cry. It is people's own memories that make history real and this engrossing book captures them vividly.

Book Short Summary:

Ein intimer Blick auf H. P. Lovecraft und sein literarisches Erbe Glitschige Lust im Cthulhu-Mythos: Ist ein Tentakel wirklich nur ein Tentakel? Wie seltsam war H. P. Lovecrafts Beziehung zu seiner Ehefrau tatsächlich? Verdrängte der angeblich asexuelle Autor jegliche Lust in sein unheimliches Werk? Jedenfalls scheute er sich nicht, echte Perversionen zu schildern – die Schwängerung einer Frau durch Yog-Sothoth in ›Das Grauen von Dunwich‹ oder die Paarung von Menschen mit seltsamen Meereskreaturen sind nur zwei Beispiele dafür. Oder war Lovecraft ein heimlicher Homosexueller? Offenbart sich mehr in der Erzählung ›Das Ding auf der Schwelle‹, in der Edward Pickman Derby mit seiner Frau Asenath schläft, in deren Körper jedoch der dämonische Geist ihres verstorbenen Vaters steckt? Nach der Analyse von Lovecrafts Leben und Werk geht Bobby Derie auf die weitere Entwicklung des Cthulhu-Mythos ein. Auch 80 Jahre nach dem Tod des Meisters wird Lovecrafts bizarre Cthulhu-Erotik immer noch fortgeführt – von Schriftstellern, die den Sex viel drastischer schildern, als Lovecraft es sich jemals getraut hätte. Die bisher informativste Studie zu diesem heiklen Thema.

  • Pdf File: a-cultural-history-of-comedy-in-the-modern-age.pdf

Book Short Summary:

Drawing together contributions by scholars from a variety of fields, including theater, film and television, sociology, and visual culture, this volume explores the range and diversity of comedic performance and comic forms in the modern age. It covers a range of forms and examples from 1920 to the present day, including plays, film, television comedy, live comedy, and comedy on social media. It argues that the period covered was marked by an explosion of comic forms and a flowering of comic creativity across a range of media. From the communal watching of silent films at the start of the period, to the use of Twitter and other online platforms to share and comment on comedy, technology has brought about significant changes in its form, consumption, and social effects. As comic forms have shifted and developed, so too have attitudes to what comedy can and cannot do. This study considers its role in entertainment and in provoking consideration of a range of social and political topics. Each chapter takes a different theme as its focus: form, theory, praxis, identities, the body, politics and power, laughter, and ethics. These eight different approaches to comedy add up to an extensive, synoptic coverage of the subject.

Book Short Summary:

H. P. Lovecraft hat das Horror-Genre bis heute geprägt. Allerdings setzt man sich kritischer denn je mit dem Autor aus Providence auseinander, der den kosmischen Schrecken entfesselte. Comic-Legende Alan Moore (WATCHMEN, From Hell) zerlegt so etwa Lovecrafts Zeit, Leben und Cthulhu-Mythos, um daraus etwas völlig Neues zu machen: erotischen Pulp-Horror ebenso wie eine intelligente, gehaltvolle Meta-Reise in jene Abgründe, die übersinnliche Monster und ignorante Menschen gleichermaßen erschaffen. Moores viel beachtete Lovecraft-Neuinterpretation erscheint in zwei edlen Hardcovern und ist ein anspruchsvolles Genre-Meisterwerk.
