Writer: Alan Moore
Paperback: 416 pages

The story concerns a group called the Superhero crime fighters and a plot to kill and discredit them. Packed with symbolism, some of the overlying themes (arms control, nuclear threat, vigilantes) have dated but the intelligent social and political commentary is undeniably fascinating.
