Reviews

'Illuminations is a wonderful collection, brilliant and often moving. A few are stories I've loved for years (in one case, for decades), some were new to me, often managing to be both mind-expanding and cosmic while utterly rooted in our urban reality, written in language that coruscates, concatenates and glitters. But the short stories in this book also turn out to be a sort of camouflage, or a frame, for 'What We Can Know About Thunderman,' a short novel that's a scabrous, monstrous, often hilarious, unmasking and reinvention of the people who made the comics, and the lives destroyed by the four colour funnies. It's Alan Moore's Guernica, a time-hopping ontological Imaginary Story that refuses to leave your head after you've read it' * Neil Gaiman *
One of the great fiction minds of his generation * Rolling Stone *
The king of comics * Guardian *
Moore makes the parochial universal, the mundane sublime and the temporal neverending * Financial Times *
His bighearted passion for his people ... and the whole monstrous endeavour of the human condition is infectious. I'm not sure there's a God, but I thank Her for Alan Moore * Entertainment Weekly *
One of the most significant fiction writers in English ... Moore's influence can be felt everywhere-in our literature, on our screens, in our politics * Guardians *
