Alan Moore transports the reader into a world that is complete and uniquely his own, one that makes you feel right at home. In this collection the celebrated scribe presents his take on some of Wildstorm's most enduring characters - WildC.A.T.s, Deathblow, Voodoo and Majestic, and special guest star Spawn, all of whom live in exotic - sometimes even outlandish - worlds: a stripper turned superhero turned private detective; a world populated by the clones of a secret agent; a time-twisted tale of a man who travels years into the future merely to find that even there, his past remains out of reach; and the last story of an immortal at the end of time...

Alan Moore: Wild Worlds presents an all-new collection of acclaimed, best-selling comics writer Alan Moore's work for Image and WildStorm comics, beautifully illustrated by a host of top artists. This collection features long out of print and hard to find stories from Alan Moore's past.

Two of comics' hardest-hitting titles converge in the time-travelling antics of Spawn/WildC.A.T.s: Devil's Day; Cats member Voodoo's life is explored in Voodoo: Dancing in the Dark; action-man Deathblow battles his own clones in Deathblow: Byblows; Mr Majestic travels to the end of time in Wildstorm Spotlight #1 Majestic: The Big Chill, and Ladytron discovers the horrible truth about Tao in WildC.A.T.S #50: Reincarnation.

The highlight for me was Deathblow: Byblows - mainly because the artist is a personal favourite of mine. I've been a huge fan of Jim Baikie's work for years.

While this will no doubt be an essential purchase for Moore fans, those unfamiliar with the backgrounds to the characters might find themselves in over their heads.
