Watchmen Creator, Alan Moore, May Retire from Comics

Alan Moore says his time working on comic books is coming to an end.

British comic writer, Alan Moore, is known for creating the graphic novel Watchmen. This dark anti-hero type story depicts a group of superpowered beings living in an alternate timeline. The stories are focused on character development and social commentary. This lends a contrast to the action and adventure featured heavily in their lighter counterparts.

Moore is an icon on the comic stage. Some of his other accolades include  V for Vendetta, From Hell, and Swamp Thing. His work often shows themes of darkness, satire, and even the occult. He has also had the chance to work with characters such as Superman and Batman during his tenure. His work in comics has spanned decades, and he has worked for Marvel, DC, and Image Comics at different points in his career.

He has slowly transitioned into a more literary and less comic writing genre. However, he says if he does retire that does not mean that working on comics again is impossible.
