Alan Moore is a British writer and co-creator of comic books such as Watchmen and V for Vendetta.

Moore worked in the UK on comics such as 2000 A.D., Marvelman (known as Miracleman in the US) and V for Vendetta, and was then hired by DC comics to work on the fairly unknown comic book Saga of the Swamp Thing, in which he laid the groundwork for what was to become the Vertigo Universe. In 1986 he wrote the dark superhero miniseries Watchmen (illustrated by Dave Gibbons), which, together with Frank Miller's Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, redefined what superhero comics could be about.

Since Watchmen, Moore has left DC for good, written the Jack the Ripper story From Hell, and returned to mainstream comics with his ABC (America's Best Comics) titles Tom Strong, Promethea and Top 10.
